With “Bland Street Bloom” from 2006’s Death Of A Dead Day currently playlisted on MTV2 in the US, things are looking rosy for the Hertfordshire heavy mob. There are whispers of Stateside tours for next year and so the sextet are preparing for red light fever while they can.
“We’re probably going to go back in and record songs for the third album from January 2007″, says Dan. ”We don’t have much material ready right now, but it’s important that we get straight on with the next one because things look like they’re hotting up in America. There’s a chance that we might be out there for a significant amount of time soon so we need to crack on in the studio while we can.“
Accompanying Dan into the studio and on tour will be his trusted Peavey 6505 Plus head and 4x12″ cab. ”I tried everything when I was looking for an amp,“ he explains, ”and I asked various producers what amps they recommended. It turned out that a lot of my favourite-sounding records were made using Peavey, like Machine Head’s “Burn My Eyes’. The amp is so reliable, which is another real benefit. I can’t have a great-sounding amp that keeps going wrong, but the 6505 just keeps going through it all.
