STA is now Ten Years Old

An Emergency - Pre-hibernation Shows Start Tonight!

However, we should stress that there's no 'bad blood' or 'creative differences' at work here, and the band's attitude has always been and remains one of never say never,

Sad news, everyone - Exeter's finest dance punk rockers An Emergency head out tonight for  what may be their last ever shows!

"Booo!", we hear you cry! "WHY?", we hear you cry? Well, despite the impending release of new album Wrecked Angles, the band have decided to have a rest after these shows and to focus on various other goals the band members have.

However, we should stress that there's no 'bad blood' or 'creative differences' at work here, and the band's attitude has always been and remains one of never say never, so they may be back at some point in the future. Maybe. Possibly.

An Emergency will play the following shows this weekend:

Thursday June 26th - Cavern Club, Exeter
Friday June 27th - Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff
Saturday June 28th - Manor House Warehouse Party

The final show is a super party extravangaza, featuring a host of other bands including STA faves Super Tennis and Breakneck Static! Check out the An Emergency myspace page for more details as to the location.

'Wrecked Angles' is available now on ltd 12" from the Faux Discx website. A beautiful digipack CD is coming soon, as is a scuzzy cassette version for you all you hipsters out there. We'll have a release date for the CD and preorder details very soon. That's the front cover up there - pretty neat, huh?

STA, obviously, wishes the band well in all their future endeavours. Straight out of the blocks on this one is guitarist Dan, who is already playing in the hot riffin' Tropics who are... yes... playing at This Ain't No Picnic. Handy, eh? Remember, cheap tickets are only available until late this evening!
