Blackhole are back together, playing gigs, writing songs. This is excellent, almost as excellent as this;
I mean, is that not one of the best things you’ve heard in ages? And it’s not even new. It’s from their 2009 album Dead Hearts. I don’t know if I’ll get to see them on this tour, as they’re supporting Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, whose London gig is the Vans Warped Tour, which for some reason SOMEBODY decided not to book Blackhole for. Fuck that person (unless you’re reading this, in which case, please book Blackhole). But new songs have been stated as existing/coming into existence, by Blackhole themselves. This brings me neatly to my opening point: Blackhole are back together. Playing gigs. Writing songs. This is excellent. And here’s why, again:
These are their current tour dates which haven’t sold out, but I’m holding out for more gigs.
October 22nd: Newcastle, The Cluny
October 23rd: Glasgow, Cathouse
