Dear reader,

Welcome to the Youves blog once again.

First & foremost we have our first show in our hometown of Nuneaton for over a year. Special guests include our dear friends Blakfish and the Black Countries' finest indie pop hedonists Your Biggest Fanclub.

This rather spectacular event is taking place at The Crown (next to Nuneaton Train Station) on Friday March 20th. Entrance is £3.50, doors are at 7:30 & unfortunately after much effort it remains 18+ admission. RSVP to the event on Facebook here:

A couple of weeks back we posted our brand new joint 'Bigorexic' from our forth coming Holy Roar Records release 'Cardio-Vascular' (out May 4th) on our myspace page. The feedback we have received is flattering & encouraging, if you haven't already leave your thoughts about the song below the blog or on the myspace page.

The record release and beginning of tour is fast approaching (dates at the bottom) We have been preparing for our tour with rehearsals, warm up shows, sex shows & smoking in Amsterdam whilst also earning what money we can. Somehow amongst all of that we have begun to record a couple of new demo tracks. It's a different kind of sound to the Youves you may have come to expect & we can't wait to share them with you.

check out these videos from The Pink Bungalow house party ..

Thanks to Lewis Reynolds of Colour/Meet Me In St. Louis fame, Data Select Party & everyone in attendance, it was a very special occasion.

February 25th saw us spend a day with the ridiculously talented London based photographer Jonny Birch, here's one of the press shots he took for us.

Special shouts for this blog go out to Peggy @ Cargo, Alex F, Mark Ngui, Cubic Zirconia, Data Select Party, Wolf Party, Jonny Birch, Kirk H & Blakfish, The Quentive Arrive Amsterdam & The Peace pipe.
