Favours For Sailors

Absolutely gutting news as one of our favourite bands and recent tour partners Favours For Sailors have decided to call it a day. They were a fantastic band, as frustratingly shambolic and self-deprecating as they were fist-punchingly awesome, absurdly zany and melodic and as genuinely talented as they come. We will miss them tremendously.

You can, of course, still check them out here:

Also, they have their new demos cassette/download for sale now too:

as well as the incredible 12"/CD/download (all in one!) 'Furious Sons':

Yeah, they were vastly underrated. I think because they didn't come bouncing out dancing and partying and causing a ruckus, clapping their hands and dribbling like idiots (us), people didnt give them enough attention. A real shame :(
