We regret to announce that Old Colours will be parting ways. We however would not go without one final kick-ass goodbye tour. It will be kicking off in Bristol on 28th February and concluding on March 16th in Swindon (full dates on promo below). We are all working on new projects – so look out for those popping up too.
We have had an incredible two years, touring the country and meeting all of you awesome people – we’d like to thank EVERYONE for the support you have given us.
Hope to see you all at one of the shows.
Much love, good things,
Happy 9th December.
As Christmas grows closer, we’re getting closer and closer to completing our new EP (Scheduled for release end of Feb).
We are now sitting on 4 tracks – and have one more to write. My iphone memory has been taking a battering as I keep writing songs in my head on the bus and then trying to hum the melodies into it without anyone noticing.
For inspiration I’ve been reading the works of Allen Ginsberg and trying to make sense of it all.
Coming soon (I promise).
We have been nominated to win #TheBikeAndRose “Band of the year”. It’s such an honor to be chosen alongside some awesome names. The line up is as follows:

We have a brand new, tres cool website – which will act as the central hub for everything Colours.

Thanks a bunch to #maxholland for building and to #tomgaiger for being such a sporting provider of grand photography.
Now we’re a REAL band. Huzzah!
Winter is rattling at your doors and we have just confirmed to have a quick stop at #MolesBath tomorrow night to play a gig with #MistyMiller as part of the #StereotypesIndieDisco night.
We’re on at 10:30pm, Event page HERE - come and see.
Friday, me and Dan joined the awesome crew from BBC Introducing West and recorded an interview which will be featured on a forthcoming documentary; Video made the radio star’. Its shaping up to be a great feature, focused on just how effective the use of video media can drive the success of artists.
Also featured are; @MatthewKilford, @SuperSquarecloud, @GazBrookfield and @FayeRogers - Really looking forward to seeing the final piece, to be aired across the BBC soon – We will let you know when and where you can catch it asap.
After the interview, we went for lunch in KFC.
A good day.
