Flight School have been busy recording a few of our own tracks and a couple of our favourite covers. You can find them on our Flight School YouTube page, or you can check them out here:
Forget the Brits… we’re very happy (and slightly surprised) to have been nominated for ‘Best Band’ in the Unsigned Music Awards, run by the ‘Best Of British Unsigned’ website. They have already played a few of our tunes on podcasts/shows that reach over 80 different FM radio stations across the world, so we’re quite chuffed they seem to like the new EP!
The vote took place at the end of February and despite it being very close for a while, we eventually came 2nd! Well done to Fjords who deservedly won it. We knew we were done for when Gareth Bale started tweeting his support for them. We don’t happen to know any Premiership footballers…
‘You Cut The Line EP’ is available to download now. Or you can listen to it first on the left hand side of this page.
We decided to let people pay what they like for it, but also the first 200 people get to download it for FREE. So do get it soon either way. And whilst we’re very grateful to those that have generously decided to pay for it – we’d certainly don’t expect it and think it’s much more important that it gets listened to. If you like it, do click ‘share’ too!
In other news, we have a new website. Like it? In the same evening we managed to finish the tracks, the artwork AND made this website. For a band that is so unprolific it only gigs once a year, that’s not bad right?
For the last 4 years (Great Odin’s Raven, has it been that long?!) we in Flight School have been putting the ‘finishing touches’ to this EP. First off, we’d like to apologise for how long it’s taken – when writing “Me, Jools and Your Suitcase” in 2008, we were unaware of how long it would take to transmogrify it from a New Year’s Day jam session into the sweeping epic beast it has now become.
But having said all that, we’re very proud of it. In our opinion it’s the best thing we’ve recorded yet, and as a little early Christmas present (because we love you), the first 200 copies will be free to download as of Monday December 3rd. We’d love those of you who still remember “Afterthought” and “Fragile” to get in there and have a listen, we think you won’t hate it. And all you newbies to our music too, welcome to the fold, come indulge at your leisure, there may not be another release for 4 years after all…
