HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM KASCARADE

We want to end the year by saying a few thank you`s but firstly we want to summarise how our year has been.

It has a been a packed year all round with a wedding for one of the band, houses have been bought, there’s been injuries, trips to hospital, physio appointments, hair dyed, cancelled gigs, a new snooker table to Kascarade HQ and also a mention on the Queens Honours list and a BEM!! This is before we even talk about music.

Musically it has been a relatively good year for us before on stage and behind the scenes!

We started the year with some sessions in the recording studio which subsequently `Consider This` was produced and released. Then we made and released the video to `Coming Back to Me`, since then we have gone on to release videos to `Cover Me Over` and `Stomp`. In between we have re-launched our You Tube channel, since October when it was launched we have had nearly 3000 views across the various videos we have up there, not to mention the videos released on other channels so all in all we have done well in that area.

We have had our videos played on the big screens in both Centenary Square in Bradford and also Millennium Square in Leeds, also we have had our music played on several radio stations BBC Introducing Leeds, several shows on BCB radio including features of Artist of the week and appearances by the band on the shows.

Musically we have played some really top gigs we have supported the likes of our heroes Simon Fowler and Dan Sealey of Ocean Colour Scene, then also played in Bradford with Dia Frampton (The Voice), Folks and also Scars on 45 and then last time out we played with Tom Hingley of the Inspiral Carpets, this is not to mention all the other fine unsigned acts we have met along the way!

Finally we ended the year recording the first part of our debut album in the studio, two existing classic songs were recorded along with two brand spanking unheard new songs! Some of these will be released in early 2013!

There is a few things going on behind the scenes for us and we are working on one or two things which will be announced in the new year!!

FINALLY….

We want to move onto the thank you`s, firstly thank you to everyone who has viewed and commented on our videos also sharing the links amongst friends, thank you to everyone who has listened and downloaded all our music.
