Touring, touring, touring, break…more touring!

By August 17, 2017Uncategorized

Hello people.

Clearly I’m not very good at this blogging thing. Partly because I forgot how to work this website shortly after being told how to work it, and then not finding the free time to learn again.

Well here I am.

The date is 17th August 2017 and I’m just about to head to Amsterdam for a 4 day getaway with my partner, of course, I have a gig whilst I’m over there at an awesome bar called Checkpoint Charlie. Then once I’m home, the touring continues.

In September I’m touring Germany with my friend Dave Giles, then in October I’m touring the UK with Gaz Brookfield.

In November I head back to Germany for another tour, and then I have a huge hometown show in December along with a short tour of Switzerland.

This year has been mad. My touring schedule has been mad.

I’d be lying if I said it’s all been rosy. I have had some terrible times this year, and the stress of touring and playing to empty rooms way more often than I’d like to be doing,  has been grinding me down.

Next year will see a massive change to the way I tour. I don’t mean that I’m going to play less shows, I’m just going to change the way I have been going about touring around this thing we call planet earth. I need to focus on my mental health, and when the thing I used to use to escape my troubles is starting to contribute to my downfall, then something has to change.

Anyway, more on that at a later date.

A few weeks ago I released a video for my track “Halloween”, a new tune that I recorded with my friend Sam in one live take.

You can check that out here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTJrDJffmVE and you can download the song for free at bandcamp – https://joemccorriston.bandcamp.com/

I hope everyone is well, and thanks to James for posting this to my website because I still haven’t relearned how to use it, haha.

One day…

I’m off to Amsterdam, take care!

Joe
