UK Tour : with Blaze Bayley!

Well, as we come towards the close of 2008, with our final run of 3 gigs, tonight at Brewery Tap, Bradford, tomorrow at Hark To Towler, Bury & NYE at the White Hart, Burnley, we're set to finish the year on a high with our latest news :-

Fury UK is to support the former Iron Maiden frontman Blaze Bayley on his UK tour in May/June 2009. The details are already entered on our gig listings at & There's 24 dates in-all starting 1st May & ending 27th June, across Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Southampton, Swansea & many more. The length & breadth of England & Wales. Our good friends & label-mates Decadenze are playing the Scottish leg of the tour in Dumfries, Aberdeen & Glasgow.

We've played 4 gigs with Blaze Bayley before & always had a great time in such cool company, also making new friends & fans along the way. This is a fantastic opportunity for us, with this UK tour booked & ready for our 2nd album "VR" due in May.

As bassist Luke says "I'm absolutely thrilled to be part of this tour involving a legend like Blaze Bayley & can't wait to get started". That sums it up. What an end to a fantastic year for us, thanks so much to everyone who has supported, helped, promoted us along the way. Roll on 2009!

Again, Merry Xmas & Happy New Year to you all.

Thank you Macclesfield!

We're on a roll it seems towards the end of what has been an amazing year for the band & last night was no exception with a fantastic reception from fans at the Nag's Head, Macclesfield. If the truth be told we encountered a few small technical difficulties behind the scenes but that seemed not to detract from the appreciation from the audience & in fact our own enjoyment of the gig. Bloody great! We played late, doing 2 encores, finally coming off stage at around 1.00am if our tired memory is correct. It was brilliant to see so many faces from our previous 2 visits & we also appreciate those of you that took the trouble to travel some distance to get to the gig, especially Craig who we know now from one of our Blaze Bayley supports in Stoke & of course, Rock of Ages Fest in Birmingham. After these recent gigs we're looking forward to the remaining end-of-year shows even more. Hope to see you at :-

Whittles, Oldham. 21st Dec.
The Brewery Tap, Bradford. Boxing Day.
Hark To Towler, Bury. 27th Dec.
New Years Eve. The White Hart, Burnley.

Dark Christmas

Last Tuesday (16th December) we played the "Dark Christmas" event at the Music Box, Manchester & had a blast. We were in great company with 3 excellent bands taking the stage before us :- Hellfighter, Seven Years Dead & Incassum. Huge thanks to each band for playing & for contributing great performances towards this night. It was also very cool to see so many people there on a wet, dark, Tuesday in December - a real result. Particular mention to Mad Ian & Josi from Hard Rock Radio Live, Stefan Burke from Guestlist Music, Alexander Walsh from Pulp Magazine & in fact everyone there, way too many to mention in this blog! Big thanks also to Rock Radio 106.1FM for co-presenting "Dark Christmas". Did someone suggest "Dark Christmas 2" in 2009 - "Santa's Revenge"? Ha!Ha!Ha!Ha!..........

Thank you Blackpool!

Hi all! 

We've just done 2 amazing gigs in Blackpool. Saturday at the King Edward VII (the King Eddy to those that know it well) & then Sunday at the Big Blackpool Toy Run charity event held at The Stanley. Thanks to all who came down to these shows & especially to Pat & Kay for helping spread the word about the band since our Blackpool debut at the Royal Oak a few months back, Nina & Tyler for booking us at the King Eddy & also to Ali for booking us for the Toy Run.

We loved both these gigs & look forward to booking some more Blackpool shows for 2009 after the new album's ready.
