I haven’t posted in here for a while. And why? Because we’re busy getting ready for our Wembley show supporting Joe McElderry, and I’ve had to practice my diminished arpeggios at 568bpm, whilst holding my bass behind my head and taming a fully grown bear. Or I’ve just been a bit lazy/overwhelmed with everything that’s happened in the last couple of months. There will be a large 2012 roundup coming, but I’m still deciding how to properly format it, and whether to just perform the whole thing as a jovial monologue with a midi reggae accompaniment. Until then, here are two excellent things that have happened to us of late:
We have signed to booking agents Little Big Agency, alongside Battles, Aphex Twin, Three Trapped Tigers, Tall Ships, Bibio, Gonjasufi, 65daysofstatic, Mum, and a bunch of others. They will handling our booking worldwide, excluding North America, and have already clinched us a load of excellent shows.
Just today, we announced that we have signed to, and will be putting our record out with Blood And Biscuits, part of the Pink Mist collective (Big Scary Monsters, Tangled Talk, Holy Roar), and home the aforementioned Three Trapped Tigers, Tall Ships, Sleep Party People, and our esteemed colleagues Portasound. The above two announcements have culminated in a UK tour, coming to these places:

Make sure you all come along and buy plenty of merch, so that we can afford to stage that math ballet we’ve always been talking about. There will be another post next Monday, when we make our big EP announcement, so until then, hold tight, thank you to all of our longstanding fans, and a warmly vigorous shake of the hand to our new fans, wherever you may be. Our next shows will be 14th February at Kingston’s New Slang with Three Trapped Tigers, and then Source New Music at the Pavilion Theatre in Brighton, accompanied by an awesome liquid light show courtesy of Innerstrings Psychedelic Light Show
You can download our first single Titan for free here:
Go get it, and then watch all of Mad Men, because that’s what I’ve been doing.
Time well spent.
(By the way, if you want to call your band ‘Math Ballet’, that’s cool, just give me credit.)
