It looks like things are starting to take shape for Crabbi’s new solo project. There’s not much information about it as yet, but you’ll want to follow his new Twitter handle @jesuiscrabbi where he’ll no doubt give more details in due course!
The Poppies are set to perform an intimate club gig at The Soundhouse in Leicester on Friday 22nd May 2015.
Thanks to Simon for the heads-up!
Crabbi’s given an interview to Australian website The Rock Pit ahead of the Poppies’ Australia and New Zealand tour, and along with plenty of interesting info is a bit of insight into the new album. It’s all recorded and was originally slated to be released in October this year, but it appears it may be held back to make time for a big promotional push:
It’s completely recorded and was going to come out in October, but that may change to Feb 2015. It’s too good, it needs a proper build up and a campaign of violence to force the right people to take notice. We’ll keep you informed.
That doesn’t look 100% but we could well be in for a treat in the new year!
