James take a break from recording a new album and kick off this summer’s very busy festival schedule with a gig on Fri 22nd May at Europe’s largest open air theatre – the scarborough open air theatre.
Then it is straight off to Bearded Theory festival where we headline on Sunday night 24th May
Lots of studio activity going on at the moment – not too much live action until the summer. Check the gigs page for updates.
Currently mixing a new Spaceheads album which should be ready for a September / October release – and putting ideas together for a new James album to be recorded from May- July. Details and pics will appear here
Spaceheads have a series of gigs coming up in February and March.
On the 7th Feb we are supporting the mighty Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp who are in the UK on tour.
We then play a couple of gigs supporting the new line up of Dislocation Dance.
The James “La Petite Mort tour came to a successful end with two gigs in Portugal Lisbon and Guimaraes – where we played live with Nicolinos drummers on the eve of Pinheiro 2014.

I guess that is the definition of having “made it” when you are stuck on the front page of the BBC iPlayer in between the “Great British Bake Off” and “Strictly Come Dancing”.
