Gig has been moved
The New Black have been forced to cancel their up and coming gig at Wembley Stadium on the 8th May 2010 due to the volcanic ash surrounding Europe at present.
Unfortunately the 90,000 ticket holders will not receive a refund. As for the 150,000 who were just going to hang outside the venue and listen in… no loss.
In an act of pure philanthropy the band have decided to return to their original hometown of Melbourne and perform in an intimate environment for their fans.
Details are on the Gigs page.
Unfortunately we have been stuck in a cave for a while and there was no internet, so we couldn’t update this site for a few weeks. Fortunately we managed to make it back to society in one piece to update you all. Unfortunately our drummer Paul drew the short straw and we had to eat him for food. Fortunately we decided to only eat one of his legs so he can still play the drums. Unfortunately we will not be playing any open/closed hi-hat anymore nor any double base on the drums.
In our absence we are told that some guys dressed up as us and played some gigs at The Royal Derby and also at Yah Yah’s. We have managed to hunt them down and kill them, as we heard that they played our songs better than we do. We would like to thank everyone who turned up at these gigs to support us but unfortunately saw our cover band. We have resolved the problem and are attempting to surgically attach one of their limbs to our drummer.
We are working on new gigs and new music so stay tuned!
Welcome to 2010 New Blackers!
Why not kick the year in with style, put down the TV remote, let your hair down, spike it up, shave it off, set something on fire, take your clothes off, grab a tennis racquet, put on your copy of “A Young Man’s Death”, go out on your balcony and jump around and naked air guitar for a while, then grab the car keys, and get on down to all of these gigs for the new year!
p.s. Put your clothes back on before you come down…. actually leave them off. But leave the tennis racquet at home.
Big thanks to all who turned up for the halloween gig at Penny Black!
We’d like to thank you all for putting in so much effort to dress up, we’d like to thank Louis King And The Liars Club and Dollsquad, oh yeah we’d also like to thank The Re-Chords, The Velocettes and The Penny Black…
We’d like to thank the bass player from the DollSquad who took our last post seriously and actually wore a bikini.
Ummm also like to thank our parents and of course God whom without his love none of this could have ever happened. Who else Ummm…. of course the sound guys we couldn’t have done it without you…. Also the academy.
We really didn’t prepare for this. Are we out of time? ok whoever we forgot we love you all!
Public Bar Gig
Thanks to everyone who turned up to watch us sweat it out on stage last Saturday night at The Public Bar.
We really enjoyed having a sauna with you all.
Next gig/sauna, girls feel free to wear your bikinis.
p.s. for the Halloween gig this Saturday a bikini counts as dressing up. TNB x
Even more gigs have been added! That’s right, we don’t sleep!
Makes you wonder how we find the time, outside of playing, to be millionaire playboys!
