Very happy to announce our upcoming Germany Tour!

Here it is. Our new video for the single "Soldier".
It was a unique experience and excercise for my patience to make this video.
But as I wrote the song with a woman in mind who is waiting for her love to come home from the war and I always pictured her doing some kind of needlework, I guess the video had to go into the same direction.
I started on some ideas in January and worked on and off until July.
All the frames are handstitched, i only used digital help once ( the skull appearing ).
I hope you like it and share it with your friends!

A live snippet and an invitation...
to our next London show.
Now will you look at this lineup:

I went to see Antlered Man at Londons Nambucca a while ago and it was a truly
memorable evening, not just because of the great bands playing that night,
I was also very much swimming in through the venues great vibe and people.
Now since we are London newbies we will be on early on this upcoming special
friday, so please make your way down at 7.45, cause that's when we will hit the stage.

I managed to click "record" on my camera at our last show at The Underbelly
so here's the outcome, sorry about the quality, we're working on better live footage for you.

Back home and a night out in London
Our Germany/Switzerland tour was fantastic.
Big thanks to everyone who came out to see us and the sweet promoters and friends.
Here's a video from our last show at Portier Winterthur:

Budi finally moved to London so now making music together will be easier and hopefully we will record and release more music soon.
He played his first show as NewLondoner at the Sebright Arms with me where we had
the honour and pleasure to support Miraculous Mule.
I dare you to visit their next concert!
And to visit our next show aswell, which will be at our new home ;) the Underbelly

More shows to come and more work to do
Hello you out there,
making an album is not easy and especially not when the bandmembers are located in two
different cities. I travelled to Berlin in january to work on some songs with Budi.
With the help of our dear friend Rahburt Price we recorded some new tracks but eventually
my voice gave in on the last possible day of recording so we had to leave the tracks
unfinished. I was fighting a virus throughout the germany tour we did beforehand already and
it affected my voice more then a cold or flu ever did before.
Next week I will travel to Kiel to record the vocals with Budi and do some additional
work on the new songs. I guess these recordings, including the 3 songs we already recorded
at Space Eko East Studio London will end up on some sort of medium for you to hear
though I don't know yet which medium it will be.
Thank you for your patience with us so far, we try to do our work as good as possible and
these things take time. Luckily Budi is moving to the UK very soon so we will have the
chance to work more often together.
Our tourcalender is filling up aswell, have a look please, we will come to Germany,
Switzerland and will ,of course, continue to play in the UK.
If you don't have our digital versions of "Isabella" and "WetSuit" yet, please scroll down
and sign up for the Leisure Tank mailinglist and you will recieve the two songs for free.

JUNE 23 Leisure Tank begin...

We recently recorded three new song here in London at Space Eko East London Recording Studio.

Please have a listen to the songs "Isabella" and "WetSuit" on soundcloud.
It's been very exiting for us to record the songs in a drum-and-guitar-session, it gives me a much more natural feeling about the dynamics.
I really hope we can tour soon like that.

The songs will be different from K.C. McKanzie recordings, but it is something I always wanted to do.
Please check back for more infos about the new material soon.
