Now that the dust has well and truly settled from our shows with the mighty Snow Patrol things have returned to normal…

We thought we would share bits and pieces of our journey to London with you guys and the new friends that we made whilst over in England.

The night before The 02 Arena show in London we were off to Chelmsford to play at the amazing Club Fusion.  The man in charge of Club Fusion, Shakey was very kind to us and gave us one of our first London shows back a few years ago, so it was an absolute pleasure to come back and do another gig with him. The other bands and the folk from Chelmsford were all lovely and we’ll definitely be back soon!

Knackered after a full days travel from Sunny Belfast to Sub Zero London we headed back to our London HQ for much needed sleep.

On Saturday morning we decided to split up for a few hours and breathe as much of London in as possible while we were there. The Whacky Races around the tube staitons of London began. Here’s some of the spots we got to…

That other fella’ Big Ben donging away at midday

After getting as much London as possible into us we pulled up at this bad boy…….

The O2 Arena inside the dome can hold more people than the population some of our hometowns….. No worries.

There was enough room in our dressing room to swing a clowder of cats, nevermind one!

After a rocking set we left it to the big boys to get the crowd going. This is the crowd about 15 minutes after Snow Patrol began. The atmosphere was un-fricking-believable. It only began to hit us at this moment the scale of the venue that we’d just knocked our wee songs out into.

Gerry’s dad got a special T-shirt made just for the occasion. Legend! Massive thanks to the Normans for making it the whole way to London to support us. We could hear you above everyone else in the crowd whilst we were on and that made us feel like we were still at home!

Finally we would like to give a massive thanks to the Snow Patrol lads for including us on their epic tour. It was an amazing opportunity for us and we will remember it for the rest of our lives. Also thank you to everyone that gave us a chance on foreign soil and we hope to be beckoning the doorstep of a venue in the UK near you soon!

ANIMAL DISCO PRESENTS

A PLASTIC ROSE

LIVE RECORDING

+ ANIMAL DISCO DJS

AUNTIE ANNIES

FRIDAY 30th SEPTEMBER

£6 / 10PM DOORS / BAND LIVE AT MIDNIGHT

Animal Disco are proud to announce that A Plastic Rose will play Auntie Annie’s on Friday 30th September. The first ever unsigned band to be play-listed on BBC Radio 1, A Plastic Rose have worked hard in toning their writing and tightening their live act. The show will be recorded live and a limited number of cd’s of the show will be available at the end of the night. Tickets go on sale Friday 12th August from usual outlets priced £6.

Rock and roll should hit you in the guts, and leave you wanting more. With their debut min-album, A Plastic Rose have done exactly this, seven tracks that leave you on your knees, begging for more.

Released on Di Di Mau Records, which is gaining an increasingly strong roster of important artists, The Promise Notes is a summation of where the band has got to so far, but leaves you in no doubt that the best is yet to come. With overwhelmingly positive reviews in the UK and Irish press The Promise Notes has successfully got people talking about this exciting new band, garnering them comparisons to the likes of Biffy Clyro, Snow Patrol, Foo Fighters, and Twin Atlantic

Their mixture of pure emotion and rock and roll dynamics has seen them winning over audiences all over the UK and Ireland, headlining the 2nd stage of the T Vital Festival and high profile gigs such as Arthurs Day in Dublin confirming that A Plastic Rose are THE most exciting new rock band in the UK right now.

With plans to release their debut full length album 2011 is already shaping up to be a key year for the band, and it seems like APR are ready to step up to the next level and win over an entirely new audience. With the likes of Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody claiming, A Plastic Rose are “A Revolution Of The Heart” who are we to argue?

To the APRmy,

We’ve been fairly busy writing a brand spanking new set of world beaters and as a result our poor blog has felt like a bit of a tumbleweed blowing in the wind… However that is all about to change! Today we are launching our new and improved APR official website! Check it out at: www.aplasticrose.co.uk
We will be regularly updating our APRspaces so that you can keep track of our progress for the big one… The debut album.

So if you would like to check out how we are doing you can see the latest videos, pictures and blurb though this blog and facebook or alternatively follow @aplasticrose on twitter and we’ll follow you back!

From this week onward Troy and myself will be posting our Xbox Live Gamertags on facebook and twitter once a week and playing Halo. If any of you guys think that you are up for the challenge keep your eyes peeled. If you beat us we’ll even send you a copy of our latest single Oceans through the post!

Thanks for reading and remember to check back for updates but for now here’s a few pictures from our latest demoing session and videos from an old recording session dug straight up from the DiDiMau archive.

Some oscar winning performances in a search around the UK for our single launch….

A Plastic Rose are purveyors of mid nineties post-hardcore tinged ‘Catchy Alternative Rock‘®, rooted firmly in late naughties peacetime Belfast, where they have been cutting their teeth on the northern front since August 2006
