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.

Well, what can we say? It's been an epic one. We've played some amazing festivals and had a load of fantastic venue shows. We've released two singles from our fourthcoming album alongside two music videos to coincide with the songs. We've done a great deal of travelling, and met heaps of characters along the way. Thank you so much for being part of our year - Promoters, photographers, sound engineers, stage managers and of course those of you who came to see us in 2015!
So whats in store for N.U.M.B. in 2016? Firstly we have a list of new dates for the year on our TOUR page. There's a few dates up there already, and more dates will be added in the near future. We have another single release from our forthcoming album, which also comes with an Official Music Video, and of course we have our fourth album release as well! Expect lots of shows, new songs and maybe even an album launch party too!!

It's been a great year for N.U.M.B. filled with lots of gigs, recording, writing, producing, filming and a bucket full of brilliant memories of the shows and the people we've met along the way. We've played some really good small boutique festivals this year, and the venue shows have been just magnificent. We've covered around 20,000 miles, gone through at least 20 pairs of drumsticks and over 40 sets of guitar strings, played a few exceptional private party's, released two singles, one featuring saxophonist Ray Beavis and the other with over 110 band friends in it, donated half of the profits of one of the singles to Hospiscare in Exeter, filmed two Official Music Videos , performed a couple of acoustic shows, and all in all had a really great time and a fantastic year!
But we couldn't of done it without you... If you attended one of our shows, brought a single online or a CD from us at a gig, helped lift some equipment, booked us for a show, watched one of our videos, took photos for us, streamed our music or simply just came up and chatted to us after a gig to tell us what you thought - then thank you very much. There is simply just too many names to list, but everyone is very much appreciated...
Our next and final show of 2015 is at The Bowling Green in Exeter on Saturday 12th December...
