FYI our fearless editor Mary is currently on holiday (sort of, she says, since she'll be working on blog-y things for most of it) in Britain and the site won't be as updated as frequently until she returns stateside after the 23rd of May. Don't worry though, we'll be busy this month going to festivals (Liverpool Sound City, the Great Escape) and loads of great content is on its way!

Chapel Club have announced a tour of the UK for next month. These gigs will be extra special, as the band will be playing not one but TWO sets each night.

Oxford band Stornoway have donated a Epiphone-S-210 guitar, signed by all four members of their band, to raise funds for wildlife conservation. The guitar will be on auction on eBay, with bidding beginning today (26 August), running through Monday the 6th of September. Money raised by the auction will go to the Concert4Conservation fund, benefiting conservation charities the Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS), the Earth Trust and the RSPB. Singer/songwriter Brian Briggs says:
As an avid wildlife enthusiast I’m very concerned about the dramatic loss of species and habitats occurring worldwide. We decided to do the Concert4Conservation to raise funds for and awareness of the important conservation work the three charities carry out locally and abroad. We’ve also decided to sign and auction one of our beloved guitars to help raise extra money from the event. It’s a beautiful, fully functional Epiphone electric guitar and we hope the buyer enjoys playing it as much as we have!
The related Concert4Conservation gig takes place on Saturday 3 September at Oxford Regal, with Stornoway headlining with the North Sea Radio Orchestra, so you can expect some orchestra versions of the fan’s most beloved songs. Support will come from the Epstein and the Dreaming Spires. The signed Epiphone S-210 will be played during the gig. Tickets for the charity gig are £15 plus booking and can be purchased here from Gigantic; the show is 14+.
More details and a photo of the signed guitar are available here on the SOS Web site. Briggs was interviewed recently about the special concert; listen to the clip below.
