We have some news for you from band headquarters;
The lads have agreed to take an extended break from Ioscaid...
We came to the sudden realisation a couple of weeks ago, when we found that it was practically impossible for us to organise a practice together! Our personal lives are catching up with us, what with new jobs, further education, and other commitments!
To keep the band going at a level that we would be happy with, and that we would be proud to perform and record at, we would have to increase our commitment level to the band by a large amount, and that is something that we, collectively, just can't afford to do at the minute!
Now, this is not goodbye! We love playing together as Ioscaid, and have achieved so much together over the years (can you believe it's been over 4 years since we first formed?) that we don't just want to throw that all away! We love the music we make, the craic we have while practising, gigging and travelling, and the friends we make (and have made) and people we meet when we go anywhere!
We were all together last weekend at Damian McKee's wedding session in Magherafelt and signed a few CDs for you guys to fight over! We have 10 signed copies of our Ioscaid EP that will go to the first 10 people to order them from our shop, as a special way of saying thank you for all your support over the past 4+ years!
In the meantime, we'll still keep the Facebook, Twitter and website going, you'll still be able to buy CDs and we'll touch base from time to time if we have any news we think you'd like to hear about!
We'd like to thank you all again for supporting us and we'll see you soon!
