Hey my old pals, Aaron Buchanan here. It's been a long time! The guys kindly let me use this page today to share with you that I have a new band Aaron Buchanan & The Cult Classics, a new album "The Man With Stars On His Knees", festival dates and tours coming up including Download Festival, Ramblin Man Fair, Camden Rocks Festival, and Wildfire Festival.
This is also the first time I will have requested help from you as I've launched a PledgeMusic campaign to allow the new ban...d to afford the roll-out of "The Man With Stars On His Knees" (recorded at Plus11 Recording Studio by James Curtis-Thomas and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright) which I'm proud to inform you will be released on May 26th. The album is completed, it's ready for the road, we just need help with getting it off the ground. So please hit the link below and support an album that was written and produced by rock music fans, for rock music fans. It's also a huge help to us if you can take a minute to SHARE this update!
Joining me in this new venture are the best'a the best: Chris Guyatt on bass, Kev Hickman on drums, my great friend and long-time guitar compadre Tom McCarthy and my sibling, stage left and shredding through that 1972 HiWatt on guitar, Laurie Buchanan. You can find and follow all these guys on Twitter and Facebook and please do, they're great!
The single "All The Things You've Said And Done" is available on all music platforms, you can subscribe to our YouTube Channel, follow rants and raves at @aaron_buchanan and most importantly, please follow and share our Facebook: www.facebook.com/thecultclassics
Big love, y'biggest fan, Aaron Buchanan -
Hey everyone, check out the pledge campaign that we're running to bring you the debut E.P. from The Cruel Knives
When we started our previous band we did everything ourselves, from setting up our own gigs to recording and manufacturing the cd's ourselves. We always came to... meet everyone at our shows and sold our E.P's in person whilst getting to know each of you. We love that side of things. You were all directly a part of our band from day 1, involved and up close. I always felt that was one of the main reasons we have such a strong relationship and everyone has been so supportive over the years.
We built our own thing up, together with you, until we felt that we were in a position to sign a record deal with a company that shared our passion and would allow us to further our way of doing things, to help us continue in that fashion rather than taking any power out of our hands and changing the dynamic. This probably wouldn't have been possible without the strength of the bond we already had with you guys.
With the creation of The Cruel Knives we want to have that same interaction. To be totally self-contained and up close with you. This is why we've decided to make a debut E.P that's directly created between you and us. To do so we're offering all kinds of limited edition and one of a kind items that hopefully you will dig. Every penny will go towards making the sort of record that we think you deserve to hear, after being so supportive for so long we owe you the best and with your help we will always strive to deliver you that. We will keep updating the offers here and continue coming up with new ideas so keep checking back to see what's available!
Thanks so much for everything, take care and hope to see you at a show very soon, Sid, Tom, Rob & Al.
Today gives us the massive pleasure of announcing our new band The Cruel Knives.
After bringing in Tom as our new singer there was a completely rejuvenated energy and chemistry that we all felt had to be given the right to stand on it's own....
Chris strongly believes in this change but as it turns out he wont be able to join us in this new chapter. We really value his ongoing support, he will always be our brother and we wish him and his new family a fantastic future. He explains his position here for you to read: Chris Rivers Art.
Long time friend of the band, Al Junior, has entered the fold as drummer for The Cruel Knives and we can't wait for you all to see him live with us.
We've always been blown away by how dedicated and supportive you've all been as fans throughout our career and figure you've waited way too long for new music! So here is our new song, 'The World We Were Sold'. This is just a taste of what’s to come, we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it and we can’t wait to share loads more music with you soon.
As well as new music, we're also going to be joining The Pretty Reckless on their upcoming European Tour starting 19th January. We can’t wait to get out on the road again, playing live has always been the most important thing for us and that'll never change!
If you could share this around to help us spread the word that'd be great! Also, don't forget to give our new page a 'like' to receive future updates.
Tom, Sid, Rob & Al
We'd really like to thank all of you for being so supportive and patient with us while we've been away. As some of you know, a few days ago we showed up with our new outfit to play two surprise shows with The Pretty Reckless and we loved every second of it, so cheers to everyone who was there in Paris and London to make the nights so special and kickstart us back into action! We couldn't have asked for a better welcome to bring Tom into the fold.
We will have l...ots more info for you ASAP but in the meantime we just wanted to say thanks for being so passionate and encouraging. We read everything you send us and it's really meant the world to us over the last few months. We can't wait to share with you what is to come.
Hope everyone's doing good,
Sid, Rob, Chris
