Tour News (+ Tickets To Be Won)

Hello all,

Currently on the road with Dananananackroyd. Thanks to all who have come to watch us play, 4 dates left and then we hit the road again on our own headline tour.

Please do let us know if any of you are coming along to any of the dates, show us around your town, buy us a drink or even help us out by getting all your mates along, getting them on our mailing list. Free Flashguns merch and ticket for the show will be coming your way if achieved. Email us at for more info.

Don’t like being too London centric. However, we have a very important London show coming up. Actually it’s our biggest headline show in the city, which is great, but you know, we need to make it special. That is where you come in. I’m sure we could rock out onstage on our own, but really without a crowd baying for our souls … then what really would the point of live music be. WE NEED YOU TO BUY TICKETS AND COME WATCH US PLAY. Think i spelt that out clearly enough.
We are playing:

The Lexington on the 23rd March. Support comes from Pushing Hands and Lucy Rose. Plus a very important person DJ set coming from BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB…Yup…going to be BIG.

But you know, i know with this economic downturn, things aren’t as fruitful as they were a few years ago for most Flashguns being the nice (poor..) band that we are, we are willing to incentivise this process with a competition.

The first 4 people to name the title of our debut album and email us at with the title and a name for yourself and you’re plus 1 gets in for FREE. Also, the first 10 people to pre-order tickets (here) and send us proof via email ( gets a free vinyl of our last single ‘Come and See The Lights’.

How does that sound…?

For all others tickets go HERE and HERE.



‘Passions Of A Different Kind’ Video

Below is our video to our next single ‘Passions of a Different Kind’.  It’s our second only video. We shot it with two old friends, JP and Tom in Exmoor where we recorded the album. It has meaning, lurking somewhere … we’re happy with it. Let us know your thoughts. Spread it … tell your friends and family..



More Tour Dates

We are back on the road at the end of the month supporting Danananackroyd, which will be fun … i think! We’re slightly scared, as seeing them live is scary let alone touring with them for 7 nights in tiny little venues across our fair land … they have 2 drummers!!? wtf … going to be interesting.  Dates are as follows:

February 2011:

Fri 25th - Middlesbrough - Uncle Alberts

Sat 26th - Dundee - Doghouse

Sun 27th - Aberdeen - Cafe Drummond

March 2011:

Tue 1st - Cambridge - Haymakers

Wed 2nd - Southhampton - Joiners

Thurs 3rd - Bath - Moles

Fri 4th - Sheffield - The Harley

Sat 5th - Liverpool - Shipping Forecast

More importantly than this though is our own headline tour in March. It’s our second headline tour to date and we’re heading out to towns we’ve never even been to, let alone played.  We need abit of help i think!  Anyone who lives or works or has been to any of the towns below, get intouch here and lets extend our ramshackle street team a little further.  There’s drinks and merch in it for you!  We’ll be back in touch with further competitions to win tickets for our london show on the 23rd March at the Lexington.
