No Vote, No Voice.

06.05.10

Hey Everyone (Leth-fans in the UK),

Phil here. Just a quick note about today’s election.

I know we’re seen as a political band but I’m not about to tell you who to vote for, I’m not generally the guy who writes the lyrics in the band either. I’ll do the odd song on a very rare occasion (Black Gold for example, was about Bush’s obvious hunt for Oil).

We only really write about what’s important to us, sometimes it can be on a personal level but if it has a political bent, it’s because we think more people should be made aware of what’s going on.

Which is why I’m writing today. Like I said, I’m not telling you who to vote for but I am asking that if you’re in a position to vote, that you do so. Our country may change for the better or worse today and it’s up to everyone in the UK to make a choice on what you want to happen next.

I’ve not got the time for people who say “Oh, I don’t vote – I don’t care who wins” or “I’m not into politics” cause those are generally the people who will moan about what’s going on more than anyone else. If you don’t vote, you’re denying yourself the right to even be upset about the state of our economy, our hospitals, the armed forces, our schools, even all the bloody speed cameras and speed bumps that the council just seem to keep putting up (who do you think is giving them the money to do so?) and pretty much any other topic that isn’t a personal thing to you.

If you’re not voting as you don’t know who to vote for, now’s the time to read up on the parties policies. Jump onto google and just type in “(party name) policies”. There’s a lot more out there than the big 3, if you find a party that share your views, and I’m sure you can find one that’s closer than all others, you know what you need to do.

If you can pick up the phone and vote for Simon Cowell’s piggy bank, you can go to your nearest polling station and vote for your future.

This is Phil on the Leth blog, over and out.

No Vote, No Voice.

Duke Show Cancelled

11.04.10

We regret to inform everyone tonight’s show has been cancelled.

Gaz has come down with food poisoning and isn’t well enough to play. Apologies to everyone planning on coming down tonight and those who came to Bridgend last night where we had to pull out last minute.

We’re all seriously gutted we can’t play but we promise to reschedule The Duke show ASAP and we’ll book another one for Bridgend too.

Feel free to leave Gaz a get well soon message below, I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.

Phil (and the boys) x

New Tour Date Added

05.04.10

We’ve added a new date to the end of our Mini Tour starting in 2 days time!

We can’t wait to get back on the road and we also can’t wait to play back on our home patch, that’s right! We’ll be live at The Duke in Neath on April 11th.

Support is gonna be from a new and upcoming Neath band, Stars & Flights. We caught the guys playing a few weeks ago, they’re really young and really talented and we thought they’d be the perfect ice-breaker to the night, get down early and make sure you catch them.

Here’s the rest of the tour dates before the Duke:

Lethargy Join Orange Amps

31.03.10

Lethargy have been welcomed to the family of Orange amps. The band is now exclusively using and endorsing the new Rockerverb Mark II heads (available in shops soon!) and the AD-200b head along with cabs.

The guys have spent the last 2 weeks testing and tweaking their new setup rehearsing for their tour next week.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be part of the Orange family, we’d like to thank Orange for supporting our music both live and in the studio, Orange amps will be a great addition to our sonic sound-scape.”
- Phil Humphreys

“If Orange made drums, we’d have them too! The Rockerverb Mk II’s sound incredible!”
- Andrew Hunt

“I just came. We can’t wait to debut these beasts on tour and at the High Voltage Festival”
- Marc T. Jones
