NEW ALBUM UPDATE, GIG NEWS + MAGAZINE FEATURES!

New Lp Songs

Well that’s it, glunk fans. The new album by The Sick Livers is written. Repeat, the new album by The Sick Livers is written! A 10 track affair that’s all killer, no filler. We’re extremely proud of these chorus laden and heavy riffed future live classics. Song title teasers shown in the pic above. Recording starts in January 2015 in the same DIY fashion as the last album. A spring release date is planned across UK and Europe, hopefully with the USA to follow suit shortly after. Proper excited, we are! In the meantime, fill your rock ‘n’ roll stockings with something from those Glunk Records reprobates. It’ll help fund the release. Browse here.

Uk Subs In the Globe

This Friday, 21st November 2014, sees us open for punk legends UK Subs and psychobilly cats The Coffin Nails at The Globe in Cardiff. It’s not often we play the Welsh capital, so get down early as we’ll be on shortly after doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets are available here.

Le Pub Xmas 2014

Quick update regarding our sold out Christmas party at Newport’s Le Pub. Ginge is currently personalising your goodie bags by hand… so expect surprises! Thank you once again for snapping up the tickets in record time. Still blown away!

Pipeline Gig 2015

A flyer for a big post Christmas shindig in old London Town has surfaced (above). Honoured to be joining Norwegian punks Honningbarna on their first headline date of the UK at The Pipeline on 10/01/15. Word on the Whitechapel street is that it’s gonna be a little bit tasty, with what feels like half of Scandinavia snapping up tickets. To get in on what promises to be a hell of a fucking night, book here.

Dai Bauchery

And to conclude, at the time of writing we’re just getting the news that our 4 stringed songwriting maestro Dai will feature in Issue 112 of Bass Guitar Magazine. Well done, that man!! Head to your local newsagent and demand a copy on release. Tidy!!!

NOVEMBER NEWS!

Brace yourselves, it’s a big un!
image1
We were amazed and thrilled to find ourselves on a compilation alongside some our rock ‘n’ roll peers. Humble to the core, The Sick Livers feature on “Burn Out – High Energy Punk Rock” alongside the likes of The Dwarves, Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy, Giuda, Hank Williams III, Fu Manchu and a whole lot more. It’s available to download for free (Google is your friend), and this YouTube trailer (complete with full track listing) is probably a better place to start than any. Click here.
Roy
A few gigs to report this month. On Friday 7th November we hit Bristol’s Stag & Hounds to celebrate 50 years of Roy D. Hacksaw’s time on planet Earth. Them Hacksaw boys will be doing a turn themselves, along with the Dynamite Pussy Club and Backhand Jags. Cockney Rejects are also in Bristol that night, but as they finish, we start around 11.30pm so continue the party. It’s free!
Uk Subs
Also this month we open for the legendary UK Subs at The Globe in Cardiff on 21st November. That’ll be an early one so arrive when doors open at 7.30pm, party with us during our set and then into the wee hours with Charlie Harper’s boys and The Coffin Nails. Tickets available here
Le Pub Xmas 2014

Hot off the gig press for 2015, we can now announce that’ll we’ll be main support to Norwegian punks Honningbarna on their first headline London show on 10th January at The Pipeline.

We’ll be recording shortly in the same DIY fashion as “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing.” A coherent release date across UK & Europe (with ROW to follow) will be announced from Glunk Records early in 2015 and the opus with be available on all hard musical formats.

Ginger Xmas
Whilst we busy writing big chorus laden anthems for next year, we didn’t notice our “Cocaine Jeans” video on YouTube had notched up over 1000 views. Us DIY chancers are well happy with that. Thank you, you amazing lot. You’ve probably seen Ginge flogging his wares on the mean streets of Bridgend but if not, check it out.

Lights out Zine

You can catch an interview with our lunatic frontman Ginge Knievil in Issue 30 of UK fanzine Lights Go Out, along with the likes of Inspiral Carpets, New Model Army and more. It’ll cost you a quid and is available here

The Coat

So, that’s it. After a turbulent couple of months in our personal lives (and you we thank you for your understanding), there’s gigs in the capitals of England, Wales and Ireland, a new record on the way, and we’re fucking wetting ourselves with excitement. Hope you are too! Tidy.

Save Le Pub
Last Saturday’s #SaveLePub show was an emotional affair (although it probably didn’t show from the outside), as we played a set in honour of Matty’s Dad Steve Knievil who passed away only a few days earlier. As DJ’s shot from the stage shows (above), we more than raised a glass for Steve. R.I.P.

CALLING LEICESTER, NOTTINGHAM, BRISTOL & NEWPORT.

Wet tee

It comes with deep regret that we will be unable to honour our commitments at the shows listed above over the coming weeks. Anyone that knows us will understand that this is not a decision taken lightly, having honoured a previous tour with two men down and a vomit induced Christmas show.


Ginge has been unwell for several months and needs to receive some hospital treatment this week. We sincerely apologise to anyone who will be let down by this announcement, we hope you understand and Ginge is striving to be fighting fit for the UK Subs date in November and beyond.
Ginge would also like to thank you all for your messages of support and well wishes on social media etc.
To any bands or promoters this effects, we’ll be in touch or please contact Dai through Facebook or via email at thesicklivers@hotmail.co.uk
The new gig exclusive “Wet” t-shirts (as pictured above) are now available online at Here
See you soon, glunkers.

HANDSOME OCTOBER LIVE ACTION!

Handsome tour poster

Just as we’re getting the news that our “Motors, Women, Drugs, Booze & Killing” LP will now be available via Germany’s Wanda Records, and coupled with the fact that the second pressing of said album on CD has officially sold-out, we’re hitting the road to preview new stuff and more throughout October.

A new gig-only exclusive “Wet” t-shirt will be available at the dates in sexy cardinal red. Check social media over the coming week for the design. So don’t hesitate to rock on up to the merch table to grab one and have a haggle with Dai for some super duper old stock deals too.

UBER THANKS!

UBER THANKS! 1

Well, what a night that was, as the cream of the UK’s underground punk, glam, rock and sleaze held hands to celebrate 5 years of the only music website that matters – Uber Rock!

DJs view

A big shout out to the whole Uber team, you bonkers lot for losing your shit during our set, the hosts at The Dolls House, and to the dazzling display of talent in the shape of Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs and Trigger McPoopshute.

Dom not Don

Glunk Records head honcho Dom Daley (above) looks happy enough to get a sweaty set-list in his mitts. With four new future singalong classics previewed, we’ll definitely be stuffing well used five pound notes in his g-string to release the next album!!

Uber Ginge

Roll on October for more “Handsome” live dates in England and Wales. Tidy.

UBERPALOOZA + #SAVELEPUB TICKET GIVEAWAY

Uberpalooza poster

As the only rock ‘n’ roll website that matters, Uber Rock, turned 5 last week, we are just two weeks away from their free Uberpalooza party at The Dolls House in Abertillery.

We’d like to thank the team at Uber Rock for being tireless champions of what we do in The Sick Livers. Roll on 13th September for a really fucking strong bill of underground punk rock action as we delightfully share the stage with Dirt Box Disco, The Hip Priests, JD & The FDCs, and Trigger McPoopshute.

Save Le Pub Banner

The campaign to #SaveLePub enters it’s final week and we have 10 tickets to give away for our show with Left Lane Cruiser on 18th October 2004. These come courtesy of friend of the band Richard Shirlow, who met his wife Lucy at Le Pub. They now reside in America with their kids and can’t make the show so have donated 10 tickets for you lucky buggers! Head over to the #SaveLePub thread to claim one… Here

Save Le Pub Weekender

There’s plenty of perks still available on Le Pub crowdfunding page, so head over and keep grassroots live music alive. Go… Save Le Pub

Ginge at Slugfest 7

As we enter the rehearsal rooms to finish off the next album, there’s plenty of live autumnal action happening to catch the new stuff and more. And we’re soiling ourselves with excitement over it!! Full listings … Here

C30, C60, C90, GO!

The track-listing has been announced for the Baldy Longhair & Fleeting Youth Records’ compilation for International Cassette Store Day 2014. “Two-Way Tie For Last” is a 38 band strong, 100 minutes of aural pleasure on one tape. The Sick Livers are track 2 on Side A. How tidy is that?

Having grown up with the cassette and the joy of the mixtape, there’s something quite romantic about being included in a brand new release on this format. Big Welsh thanks to the labels from across the pond who wanted to include us on this venture.

image

The compilation hits the following US stores on 27/09/14…Cassette store day (if they haven’t got it, demand it). And all for a mere $5 with a free download code we hear. Phwoar!

We’ll hopefully get our greasy UK mitts on some in the weeks following so we’ll keep you posted on that. Your battered car tape deck deserves a kick-arse compilation!

Fleeting Youth

Full track-listing available on this feature from Punk News… 

Very tidy indeed.
