Column: The Heathers

Hello all,

So we have just returned from the last few dates of our Irish tour. It was incredible! We played to some wonderful audiences and in some beautiful venues.

Our Dublin gig in the Academy was a real surprise. We arrived out on stage to a full house and were blown away. We’ve been looking forward to our Irish tour for a while now but especially the Dublin gig as we knew that our family and friends would be there. It was definitely something we won’t forget.

Next up was Cyprus Avenue in Cork followed by The Set theatre in Kilkenny where we nearly got lost in the extreme fog on the way home, but survived none the less!

Our last gig of the tour was in the Roisin Dubh in Galway. A venue we love and have played in numerous times. There was a great atmosphere and we had a really enjoyable last set of the tour.

It’s been so great playing with a full band every night. Lots of energy and lots of fun! Our newest members, Tom and Boomer are extremely talented and so much fun to be around. We’re definitely looking forward to getting out on the road again as soon as possible.

In other news, we’ve been overwhelmed with the response we’ve had to our first single off our new album, Forget Me Knots. It was the most played song on 2fm a couple of weeks back and we’ve been receiving some really nice messages from people about how the song has helped them through tough times in their lives. The song is very important to us. We wrote it for a friend of ours who passed away about two years ago and it also draws from our own experiences. We really didn’t have any idea how it would affect people and it means a lot to us.

For now, we’ll be resting, for a day or two, catching up on sleep, and Home and Away!

We’ve got a few exciting things coming up in the next few weeks which we will keep you up to date with. Stay tuned for our thoughts on Hallowe’en.

In the words of Cilla Black: Tarrah for now!

Ellie and Louise
