I can't believe today has actually arrived. We can do this Scotland. We can prosper as an independent country. #letsdothis #voteyes #indyref
I will keep this short and to the point, there's no real need to go into great detail. I had a bit of a meltdown on Saturday, for various reasons. Some of you may have witnessed it, some of you may not have and some of you may not really care, but I said some regretful things on Twitter. I'd like to attempt to set that straight. Sometimes when life goes awry the reaction is to destroy and say "fuck it all" and unfortunately that's what I did. In spite of this, it's not the end of our band and (in the sobering light of day) I don't truly believe the things I said. On the plus side I have a greater appreciation of the pitfalls of mixing alcohol, depression and social media. In case you were in any doubt, it's a terrible idea. For now, the priority is recovery, so regretfully we have decided to cancel our appearances at Haldern and Rock Am See. Sometimes there are more important things than playing shows and we wouldn't be pulling out if we didn't think it was necessary. Lastly, I'm sorry if I caused any alarm. If you have ever been through a low-point in life I'm certain you'll understand. If you haven't ever been through the muck, you are a lucky bastard.
