▲▲▲ TCD complete UK summer tour - Manage to avoid death, disease, & body snatcher invasion... ▲▲▲

So, we finished our first ever UK tour with a very fun gig in Lancaster (complete with shroomed dancers) on Friday there. I think its safe to say we all had a cracking time, and can't wait to do it again. Big thanks to the promoters and bands who put us on and put us up for the night and fed us lovely food, including James Nash (Hello Bastards), Tony Erdelyi, Everyone at Supernormal fest & Ollie, Paul of Burial Chambers, Rich Dibble, Helouise & Olmo, Jason (Behind the Wall of Sleep) of Mugstar, The Left Hand, Verity & Emma (Fat Out Till You Pass Out), Vendela, Spacey Tanxman, Marian & Pauline Clark. You're all bloody wonderful and we wouldn't have be able to do it without you! Particular highlights include the entire Supernormal experience (make sure you go to the next one if you can, it truly is a fantastic and unique festival!), playing football in the suicide capital of the UK, seeing Mick Jones perusing the VHS section of Oxfam, Klaus Wunderlich's Cornflakes, meeting the Mugstar chaps, and Ollie and Wes's freak out shapes at the Yorkie. There are definitely countless others, but those are just a few off the top of my head.

We also have a special treat for all you Glasgow heads, if you missed us playing the Note the other week, we're playing Bloc on Bath Street this Wednesday coming (22nd) alongside Vakunoht. The gig is free, starts at 9, so c'mon down to tune into some fresh off of tour vibes!

And lastly, we've now made our newest release, the Exalted King, available for download over at our bandcamp site [here]. We do still have a few cassettes of it left too, but they will most likely dissapear at Bloc or at Doune The Rabbit Hole next weekend. If you would like to reserve one, please email us at thecosmicdead@gmail.com. We will also have merch (T-shirts and Tour posters) available for purchasin' on the bandcamp very shortly, stay tuned!
