Tonight Alive are to play their latest album, ‘The Other Side’, in its entirety at London Koko on November 25th. This show is the day before their previously announced Koko show on November 26th which is sold out.
Octane Ok have sadly announced that they are splitting. The announcement comes two days after bassist Drew Comley posted on Twitter that he was flying out to Dubai to live and work as a bass player for the foreseeable future. The band wrote on Facebook, with the above collage:
We regret to announce that Octane Ok will be calling it a day.
All of us have decided to move on to other things & believe we’ve taken the band as far as we can.
We’d like to say special thanks to our manager Martyn who has invested in us in every way helping us achieve things we could only dream of when we started out & our great friend Tibor for his faith.
Also Scream, Duff, Shari, - Kerrang Radio/TV & every station that played our music.
BUT MOST OF ALL we’d like to thank you, every single one of you who came to our live shows, bought or downloaded our songs & supported us through these past five years.
We feel sad to have to wind things up but now seems the right time.
THANK YOU XXX
Paul, Tom, Drew & James
Black Velvet is sad to hear this news, particularly as they were one of our favourite bands. We will miss these guys, their great live shows and quality music (although of course their music will live on). We wish them the best of luck in the future and hope it’s not too long before we hear of some new and equally awesome musical projects from the members.
Issue 81 of Black Velvet Zine is out now and is the final printed issue of Black Velvet (before we go fully online).
