The Brixton Academy gig has been confirmed for November the 8th.
No updates for over a month, sorry but I've been working on the
new site (which is ready for whenever Jane sets up my domain). Anyway here's
the big exclusive: the first 3 dates of the October/November have been confirmed
29th October:Folkstone Leas Cliff Hall
1st November:Glasgow Barrowlands
3rd November:Newcastle Universit
at the moment I don't think any dates have gone on sale, but keep checking
back to ticketmaster
or aloud which are
the ticket sites these dates came from.
There is going to be a gig at London's Brixton Academy which is a mega
rad venue as well but the date isn't known yet. The Promise Ring are unlikely
to support, contrary to recent rumours.
The album, Ideas Above Our Station, entered the charts at number 6,
down from the midweek number 3, but still very impressive.
The next UK tour will be around October/November time.
Falter release date is expected to coincide with the Carling Weekend
(i.e. around end of August) now instead of September.
It's thought that H*R will start the recording of their second album
some time this year, when they visit America.
Ozzfest was last night, H*R headlined the Radio 1/Kerrang stage.
Radio 1 played three H*R songs I think, I'll Find You, If I Could and Oratorio.
Falter will be released around September time and it'll be the last
single from IAOS. It's been hinted that an EP of new material will come
out following that.
The re-release of 'one' has been confirmed for 10/6/02, although there
is no mention of the vinyl being re-released.
H*R finished the first leg of the tour in glorious fashion
at the Astoria in London on Saturday, finished off by us street teamers
throwing Singles Club stickers at no less than Coby Dick (or
Jacoby Shaddix, whatever) and getting threatened by his bodyguards...
a good night was had by all.
I think we all know the album was released on CD and 12" yesterday...
if you don't have it already, go and get it now.
Silver is number 43 in this week's chart.
The site will soon be having a minor makeover and moving to
somanyanswers.hundredreasons.com. Also I may think about recruiting
someone to update the site more regularly... if you want to, email me
H*R are signing copies of the album and playing a 20 minute set
at HMV in Oxford Street on Thursday night as reported below. Some wristbands
are floating around on the H*R message board
. So get over there sharpish and you might be lucky enough to get
H*R played Top Of The Pops last week, and it was broadcast on Friday
and Saturday nights.
Lucky Thirteen have been added to the Reading Uni date on the 27th.

There will be two instore signings: HMV in Oxford Street
on May 23rd (ticket only) and at the Rock Box
in Camberley on May 20th. The Rock Box will be opening at
midnight on Sunday 19th to be the first shop to sell the album, but
I'm not sure when H*R will be signing.
The tour started on Wednesday in Cambridge. Go to
