Acoustic show in Histon, Cambridge

24/11/2014. Following on from a cracking night rocking York with Electric Mary, we had a fantastic but somewhat quieter night at The Boot in Histon, Cambridge last Saturday, playing a special acoustic show for Hazel Woods. Hazel pledged as part of the Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Eximius Humanus. It was a great challenge to re-imagine some of the MR stuff for acoustic guitars.

Thanks to everyone who came down and were part of a very special evening, and to the staff at the Boot. But an extra special thanks to Hazel and Mark and family for their amazing hospitality and support!

Next, we’re gearing up for the tour with Graham Bonnet, hope to see you on the road next week!

Morpheus Rising to tour with Graham Bonnet

30/10/2014. We are very excited to announce that Morpheus Rising will be tour support for Graham Bonnet on his December UK tour! Having supported Graham Bonnet at York Fibbers in earlier this year, we’re really looking forward to this! It’s going to be a great tour and one not to be missed – get it in your diaries!

This tour will see a slightly different line up, with Craig Hill depping for the injured Nigel Durham, who is currently off games and nursing a shoulder injury, and the irrepressible Yatim Halimi (Panic Room, Steve Rothery Band) filling in for Andy Smith on bass whose Mostly Autumn commitments mean he is unavailable for the tour.

The dates are London O2 Academy Islington December 1st, Sheffield O2 Academy 2 December 2nd, Liverpool O2 Academy 2 December 3rd, Glasgow O2 ABC 2 December 4th and Birmingham O2 Academy 2 December 5th. We’ve been dying to announce this for a while but now everything is signed and sealed so we can finally spill the beans.

Great to have the chance to get out on the road again, and even better to have a chance to support Graham Bonnet again! So dig out your MR shirts, come down to the shows and show us your support! See you down the front.

Newsflash – Last Minute Substitution!

11/07/2014. We have to announce a last minute substitution for the show on Sunday at The Robin 2 in Bilston with Fahran. Due to a shoulder injury, Nigel Durham is not match fit and will be unable to play.

Erstwhile MR sticksman, Paul Gibbons, will be stepping in on drumming duties for this show. We are very grateful to Gibbo for stepping in at very short notice and helping out and wish Nige a speedy and complete recovery! All the gig details on the tour page or check out the Facebook Event.
