Happy New Year

January 2, 2011

so it’s been a busy and frustrating 2010, a year that we’ve labelled the “foundation” year. The reason we’re calling it that is that all the work over the last 12 months has been to stock the arsenal so that we can head into 2011 with a fighting chance. A Plastic Rose had a very successful UK tour and a phenomenal tour of Ireland with Maybeshewill. Straight off the back of it (without even a day off) they headed straight into the studio to record their debut mini album ‘The Promise Notes‘. This will be released in March 2011, preceded by the amazing single ‘Oceans‘ on January 31st, all while they’ve been crazy busy booking a full UK and Ireland tour in March/April. All this was tinged with disappointment when their headline show in the Mandela Hall in Belfast had to be postponed to January 27th, and it would mean a great deal to all at Di Di Mau and team A Plastic Rose if you made it down to see them. There’s a fantastic support bill too with The Good Fight, Axis Of…,Colly Strings ands Key Of Atlas– all for £6 on the door! It’s APR’s biggest headline show to date and it’s to celebrate the launch of their new single ‘Oceans’, which you’ll be able to buy exclusively on the night.

Dutch Schultz have also been working hard recording their 2nd Di Di Mau album ‘Tonight We Hunt‘. It still makes us tingle when we think just how good this album is, and combine that with it being produced by the amazing Russ Russell, it’s shaping up to be one of the best rock albums of the decade. There’ll be a few choice gigs in April to celebrate the start of the ‘Tonight We Hunt’ campaign so keep an eye/ear out.

There’s also a new signing to Di Di Mau who you will be hearing a lot about in 2011. I’d love to tell you more but I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise. Di Di Mau will also be attending SXSW for the first time this year which we’re very excited about, so if you’re going to be there then please get in touch!

So all in all a very exciting (and busy) year ahead, and we hope you can come along for the ride.

all the best and have an amazing 2011.
