Phinius Gage tour and new EP planned

Brighton skate punkers Phinius Gage are set to head out on tour at the end of next week, and have told Punktastic all about their plans to record a new EP.

The tour kicks off on June 28 in Hastings and will feature shows all across the southern half of the UK.

And in addition to that the band have already booked valuable studio time to record the follow-up to last years ‘Econ’ EP.

Matt Steele told us: “We’ve booked in to the studio to record the much awaited follow up to last year’s Econ EP. We’ll be living it up on the rich side (or poor side?) at Premier Studios with Ian Weatherall. Keep an eye out for a late
Summer / early Autum release.”

The dates for the tour are as follows:

Fri June 28th – Hastings – The Carlisle with My Dad Joe and Texas Hold-ems
Sat June 29th – London – Bull and Gate (Kentish Town tube) with Cousin Joey
Sat July 13th – Bath – PorterButt with Mouthwash and The Setbacks
Tue July 16th – Brighton – Presure Point with DOA, MTA and Slaughterhouse 57
Wed July 17th – Winchester – Railway Inn with Howard’s Alias, Appease, Diatribe
Sat July 20th – Easbourne – Stringbendys with Chemical Reaction, Fluff Castle

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
