A truly heartfelt thank you goes out to everybody who made Friday such an amazing farewell event. We'd firstly like to thank our very close friends Boat To Row and Katherine Priddy (artist) for being absolutely fantastic on the evening both in their own sets and helping GNL with ours. We could not have asked for a better lineup of musicians or people.

A huge shout out to Jon Nash for providing our sound and for playing some super sweet guitar licks on our last song 'Without Y...ou'. You are a hero and we thank you for all your support.

Much love goes out to the guys at Hare & Hounds Kings Heath. We are all so lucky to have a venue and in house promoters of such quality in our locality. We all need to support local venues and promoters. It's our favourite venue and it was apt that we should end it in Venue 1.

To our photographer, band historian, friend and ex fuzz Richard Shakespeare. Thanks for the endless sleep deprived journeys, wise advice and post edit blemish removals during your eight or so years documenting the band. You know the regard in which we hold you.

To the crowd on Friday and for all those who have supported GNL over the years; in Cathedrals, amphitheatres, pubs, concert halls, festivals, kitchens and other strange places we have played. You have been truly wonderful. It has been brilliant to hear various stories since the announcement from those who can remember where they saw us first, people who have bonded over the band and those who have become dedicated Lenin's. It's is very humbling and we honestly don't deserve your support.

Finally, a moment for me to say thanks to my brothers in arms; John Joe, Matt, Sam and Fell. GNL has always been about more than the music. We are bonded in ways it is difficult to articulate. Band members are normally transient people, moving from new sound to new opportunity on a regular basis. I'm proud to say that we have stood together, failed together and succeeded together. So as I depart for distant lands. Gentlemen, it has been an honour and a privilege playing with you for the past 9 years.

Liam.

GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT LENIN

We are writing to let you all know that we’ve decided to go on an indefinite hiatus and our show on 11th August at the Hare & Hounds will be our last for some time.

Luckily, this so happens to be at our favourite venue with our favourite bands playing alongside us so we invite you all to come and celebrate with us

...

With Liam departing for Cairo later in the month, we’ve decided to step back as we’ve always come as a pack of five.

We have played together as Goodnight Lenin for 7 years and have been in bands together for all our adult lives. It feels the right time to lay the instruments down for a while and have some downtime from music.

We are sorry to anyone who planned to see us at Beyond The Tracks on 17th Sept. We will, sadly, no longer be performing at this event. They will be announcing our replacement soon.

This maybe be the end or maybe just the end of the beginning...

Tickets for Goodnight Lenin Plus Boat To Row & Katherine Priddy on 11th August are available from:

GNL UPDATE

Hello!

We've been quiet for a while... We've been working on Album #2! We're pleased to report it is coming along well! Another couple of months and we'll be done! It is sounding cool!

...

In other news, Our comrade Liam will be heading to Cairo in August for a year... An amazing adventure, after which, we hope he'll be returning! We'll continue to record and work on album #2 & #3 together but this does mean that our show at Hare & Hounds Kings Heath on 11th August will be the last show with Liam for some time and our show at Beyond The Tracks on 17th Sept (with another guitarist jumping in) will be our last show for a while as a band!

Don't be sad! We will be going away to finish album #2 and start work on the songs already building to form album #3!

We are excited about what we are creating and excited about the coming 12 months!

We are also pleased that Boat To Row and Katherine Priddy (artist) will be joining us on 11th August! No doubt we'll be celebrating this night so come and join us to wave a farewell (not goodbye) to Liam!
