Ladies and Gentlemen, the album cover...

7th October 2015

Well, what can be said after your last post was a year and two months ago?

We haven't been twiddling our thumbs for fourteen months, (except for a few occasions at the start of the year...) We have been deep in the writing process of our debut album, A Simple God Complex. For those of you who have been watching our Facebook page, you would have seen some photos from Joe's drum recordings. Jon has completed his bass tracks and all of the guitar and vocal recordings will be happening very soon. 

We are excited to announce the first two shows of the year, (better late than never!) in Southend and Chelmsford. We can not wait to play a number of new songs to you!  

We will update you on news about the album as soon as it comes in... Until then, see you at the gigs or in the pit!

BIG Neanderthal news for you all today! 

First, we are delighted to announce the release date of our first EP: The Dawn of Reason.

It will be available on all the big digital stores from Monday 22nd September, 2014. Links to purchase the full EP will become available in the coming weeks. We are all incredibly excited for this release after many months of hard work putting it all together. Spread the word and make sure you grab a copy!

In the meantime, you can download Insomnia and Negative Feedback through the "music" page on this website, or directly through BandCamp. 

Next up, some gig news: No confirmed dates at the moment, however a taster of what's coming for you...

We will be returning to Chinnerys very soon, (Date TBC... It is NOT the 12th September as our video update suggested!)

We are also returning to the Fighting Cocks in Kingston around October.

Finally, we are planning to make our first appearance in Dagenham later this year at The Cherry Tree.

Thanks for all of the continued support from you amazing fans! 

Adam, Alec, Jon and Joe.

2014 continues to roll on with full speed and power!

The first gig of the year is finished, and what a show! Fists were pumping and heads were banging, the energy was fantastic and talking with people afterwards, it was incredibly good fun for both band and fans. Thanks to all who came down and the staff at Chinnerys for an awesome night. 

In other news: EP tracks are almost done and ready. They'll be with you very soon... 

Until next time! Keep on rocking!
