Having returned from a great show last night in London, it’s now 6.30pm here in Sheffield. There’s still snow outside but it’s going to be trumped by rain very, very soon.

This is just a short message to thank everyone for their support in 2014. There were a lot of cities in Europe (and one in North America!) that were performed in as well as seeing old friends from around everywhere and meeting new ones.

Soft Riot moved its base to Sheffield UK in mid-2014 and the scene here has been very supportive so far. I’m looking forward to further involvement here in the new year, with the Der Hammer night I co-run with MM Lyle of Marcel Wave as well as all people we know here.

Moving into the new year there will a proper follow up album to Fiction Prediction out in spring 2015. Thanks to Owen Pratt from Flesh & Bone Studios for helping mix it and Desire Records for taking it on.

In January there will be a sale on records and other merchandise through the Soft Riot online store. More details on that next week.

So have fun out there tonight, whether you’re staying in with a few good friends or a loved one or out there celebrating it in excess. We’ll see you in 2015 (sounds futuristic, doesn’t it? I say that every year though.).
