Life is really very good at the moment, there is just so much going on! As you probably know I’m getting married to my lovely Ellie a week tomorrow so it’s all hands on deck in regards to that! Really excited about it! Of course we will be going on our honey moon straight after so we have been cramming in as much 5th Order work as possible before the fortnight off.
We had two really great practice sessions this week, we are really starting to make progress now. The previous sessions have been more about getting used to playing to the click tracks and actually getting the songs learnt. We have that more or less smashed now so we are starting to get our groove on and are beginning to enjoy playing the songs much more. Can you believe we have over half the album rehearsed now! My particular favourite to play at the moment is ‘Motion Owl’, you can really put some passion into the song whilst performing it, as a band we are loving it. This week we started a couple of new ones such as Chris’s ‘Doubt it’, a great, dark number that really is a beast to play. I think Chris is happy to finally get a go at singing something of his own. Rehearsing is so enjoyable now, as soon a we finish a song there is a resounding “Fuck yeah” from each of us. Morale is definitely up this week, we feel that we are really growing as musicians, the tightness is scary as Dave says!
We are close to the online release of our album ‘Motion Owl’! It will go live on all major online music services such as Itunes, Amazon, Google play, Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and so on. We would really appreciate your support, we need as much online traffic as we can to really get a buzz going! For you streamers, we wouls be very grateful if you could leave us a review of the album once it’s out and same goes for our current release ‘Fairy Lights in Summer’.
I’ll drop in next week just before the big day!
