This week has just been epic for NUMB. We have just about, nearly, apart from a few mixing discussions, finished our fourth studio album. It's been over three years since our last album 'Fruit of the Boom' and it's been a gargantuan task recording our fourth but we're listening to the mixes this week and walking around with massive smiles on our faces, the excitement clearly building! Our heads have been buried in what we reckon is by far our best album so far - we really have given this one our all! We are playing at The Old Pier Tavern in Burnham this weekend, where all of the band will get a copy of the album to take away and listen to for the next three weeks. Notes will be made, changes will be afoot, but rest assured the record will be off to the mastering process in a months time and then an official release date will be announced!!! Pre-order details will be posted, hard copies will be printed and an album launch will occur! In the meantime, you can catch us at one of our shows this summer... big musical hugs all round.

What an amazing start we've had to 2017. Our calendar at NUMB HQ is filling up nicely... We've around 40 live dates put on our TOUR page already and have lots more dates to be confirmed. There's a few more acoustic dates this year aswell, so check out the page for a live show near you. Also this year we are excited to announce that AJ Richie who appeared on our last album will be appearing at many of our live shows, acoustic and full band dates, whilst also making a few appearances on our new album which is due out this year!!
The album is coming along beautifully and we are now in the final stages of production for most of the tracks, and apart from a vocal, guitar and bass session the songs are now sounding like a record! We've been sat here most days this month listening to the mixes and writing notes and we happy to say that all of the hard work is paying off and it is all sounding fab!!
Also this month we've recorded a couple of acoustic cover songs which you can watch via our YOUTUBE channel. The first one we recorded was our version of George Michael's song 'Faith'. We thought that given the recent sad passing of George, the song title and our own belief in music that the choice of track was very fitting. As of our second choice - Adele's 'Someone Like You' the videos feature AJ Richie, Yaz Elle and Ben from the band. They were great fun to record and play and we look forward to playing the songs at our upcoming acoustic shows!!
We've also spent the last couple of months in meetings for our new Official Music Video, scribbling down scripts, scenes and ideas and have also had our first shoot which was a days shoot filming Yaz for her very first scene of the video. We saw the first test shot earlier this week and we are very excited for the release of the video and song! The song is called 'Having a Ball' and the video will hopefully be released prior to the album in a few months time! In addition, there is talk in the NUMB camp for the next music video so watch this space for more news, and remember...
Never Underestimate Musical Belief!

We've had an epic few months here at NUMB HQ. Starting off the summer with some awesome shows in Bridport, Newquay and Porthtowan, June was a fantastic month. We played to a beautiful sunset in Cornwall, followed by a live performance on Balcony TV in Exeter at the beginning of July. Hazy Days festival in Weston-super-Mare was a brilliantly run free festie on the seafront and the weather was glorious. Other July gigs in Georgeham, Weston, Taunton and Wellington flew by and suddenly we were at the beautiful Croyde View Festival, overlooking the sublime coastline whilst we played to a great crowd. A week later we were back in Exeter for a show and then the following night we smashed a stage in Burnham-on-Sea! With a few private parties along the way it's been a fab summer and we can't wait for the last couple of gigs at the end of the month to top it all off!
Behind the scenes we have had our heads heavily buried in the studio working on the tracks for our forthcoming album. One of our songs features The New Dawn Chorus Choir from Seaton in Devon and earlier last month we went to record all 30 of the wonderful ladies for the track. A few weeks later and a soloist from the choir - Mary Bowles, graced our studio to lay down her vocal part. In the next few weeks we will be back in the studio with Will to lay down the drums for the last group of songs on the album and we will be in preparation for a video shoot at the end of September for one of the album tracks. Vocals and post production is now the order at NUMB HQ for the remaining album tracks and then in September we'll be kicking off our Autumn/Winter shows in Exeter and Taunton, followed by Teignmouth, Bridport, Georgeham and Totnes!
The above picture was taken on 14th August at about 2 in the morning on the way home from our show in Burnham-on-Sea.

We are already into the summer season and the sun is beaming on us here at NUMB HQ. We've sucessfully performed a string of shows all over the South West and even had a cheeky holiday in the South of Spain to review our album tracks... and the album is coming along beautifully. We've recorded all parts for the current group of songs we've been working on and now have 8 songs in the bag for the new album! The last session was with NUMB drummer Will Beavis in the beginning of April where will laid down drums for 4 tracks. Production is now in session for those tracks and the band will be recording the last group of songs this summer.
More gigs have hit the TOUR page including a few venues and a show for Heathcoats Fabric Factory of Tiverton who are celebrating 200 years in business and putting on a party for the people of the town.
The next few shows for the band are The Ropemakers in Bridport followed by two shows in North West Cornwall!

With 5 gigs passed, the band have been spending the new year working on their new album. There have been bass sessions, lots of vocals, guitars, guest trumpets, pre-production on all new tracks and this weekend sees the recording of the 2nd 'featuring' track with professional pianist / keyboard player Jim Berry. Jim has toured and played with some legends of the music industry and is coming to NUMB HQ to play his part for a new song on the album. Other guest appearances are also in the pipeline for the new NUMB record and details of whom will be released nearer the time!
With a great start to 2016 the band are booking up dates for the calendar with performances at Hazy Days Festival in Weston-Super-Mare, Party in the Park in Luton and also Croyde View Festival in Cornwall. There's also a few weddings this year and lots more venues going up on the TOUR page as they come in. The next live show for NUMB is at The Bowling Green in Exeter on Saturday 2nd April, and shortly after some of the band are snatching a well earned break in the South of Spain, where they will be reviewing the recorded tracks from the album and deciding on the playing order of the album, the next single to release and when they drop the album!
There's a guest performance coming up at the beginning of May featuring 'Irie' saxophonist Ray Beavis (www.raybeavis.com), a two date Cornwall appearance at Whiskers in Newquay and The Unicorn in Porthtowan, and July kicks off with a live performance on Balcony TV.
