Great night in Bilston with Panic Room
04/12/2013. We had a great night in Bilston with Panic Room on Sunday night at the Robin 2. We’ve supported Panic Room several times there now for their now traditional Christmas show – and earlier this year in July too when Pete was on double duties depping on guitar with Panic Room too.
The Robin is a great venue and it’s always a great atmosphere and a wonderful crowd. Many thanks to Bill the sound man and all the venue staff, and to everyone who came out on a positively arctic evening – and to Panic Room for having us back yet again! Easy night for Pete this time too – just the one gig to play. Looking forward to the album launch there in February!
So, this week sees us at Fairview in Hull for (hopefully) the last few sessions to complete the new album. Can’t wait to see this all start to come together. Nige is on duty first and then we’re into production and mixing…

Another amazing week at MRHQ
13/10/2013. Well it was quite a week last week at MRHQ. It’s taken a couple of days to get our heads round it and once again, it’s all because of the amazing support from you, the MR fan family.
First of all, the Kickstarter crowd funding campaign were running reached its deadline at lunchtime last Tuesday (October 8th). We were asking for £6,000, but the final total was not just better than that, but way better than that. All told, the total reached £7,432, which is absolutely outstanding. Read more…
Friday night (October 11th) saw us head over to Selby to the Riverside to support Tygers Of Pan Tang. Tygers were part of the original NWoBHM movement way back when, alongside Maiden and Saxon and all those guys. We had a very short slot – just 30 minutes – to leave time for four bands – Thirteen16, Hellion Rising, Morpheus Rising and the headliners Tygers Of Pan Tang. It was also Nige’s debut show, and what a show! We had a ball, and managed to get three of the new songs into the set too! Nige did an outstanding job – well done mate, welcome aboard!
£7,432 in 30 days – Thank you!
08/10/2013. Outstanding! Not just funded but 123% funded! The clock stopped on the Kickstarter project today at 12:57pm UK time, with a grand total of £7,432 pledged towards our £6,000 goal, with the final pledge just moments before the deadline – just as the first was just moments after we pressed “go” a month back!

Kickstarter Update 6: The end is nigh! 115% and counting
05/10/2013. Is it really almost 30 days since we pushed the big green button and launched this project? How did that happen? We’re into the final weekend of the Kickstarter campaign this weekend, and we’re still going strong! Read more…
Kickstarter Update 5. You did it! 104% and counting…
29/09/2013. It’s official! We have reached the Kickstarter target! In fact, we’ve passed it. So as of early yesterday evening, funding for the new album is going to happen.
The way Kickstarter works is that unless the funding target is reached, it doesn’t happen, nobody pays anything and the project doesn’t get any money. But you guys have smashed that target – we passed the £6000 target yesterday evening, and more has come in since – the total is currently £6263, that’s 104%. Read More…
