****, four out of seven they're selling for cancelled - looks like they're keeping Manchester, London, Bristol. Bristol is my nearest (7-hour round-trip). Anyone on here going to that one?

Not good. Seemed odd announcing a tour so far in advance?
Bristol and MCR for me then.
Was looking forward to Scotland, gutted that's not a goer.

Don't think See were ever selling Scottish dates. Glasgow still on venue website:

What the hell is going on? Nothing from the band about this... by all appearances they're active and recording music. It just doesn't make any sense...

Is a strange one. I thought these days touring was where all the money is as album sales/record contracts/streaming royalties are so poor but maybe it's the opposite for Black Sub as they sold direct to fans in the first instance. Perhaps the recording is a response to the dates being pulled? Probably not as they've said all along they were planning more new music sooner rather than later (single was pulled/moved though). Must have been a heart-breaking decision.

I don't know how anyone makes money from music these days and piracy/download culture is largely to blame IMO.

I've heard it's largely from having songs in movies, television shows and advertising. Unfortunately for this band most of their music doesn't seem very fitting for that.

Yep. Soundtracks to big budget films is where it's at for £££.
Especially those that sell well on DVD, and at the box office.

I watched an interview with Alan McGee and he said this avenue was all that was left to make decent money.

from the bands FB:
"Due to parting with our old management, we are in the process of re-organising our October tour. Hang on to your tickets and we will announce the new plans along with the release of Heart First, accompanied with some brand new material we've been working on. Thanks for your patience."

Heard on Twitter too. Good news!

Wonder if they were just recording some b-sides for the Heart First single, or if it's a whole other EP / album. Happy in any case.

Ah, now it all suddenly makes sense. Bit of a relief as it (mostly) looked a bit ominous.

Given the band's history of getting things done at a notoriously slow pace, I expect well see this EP sometime in 2019.

Any word or ideas as to why they're finished with their management?

Looks like the Manchester gig has been canned too. The guy who runs The Ruby Lounge group on Facebook has cancelled the event

Didn't you see the Facebook message Joe Col posted?

The important bit being: "we are in the process of re-organising our October tour. Hang on to your tickets and we will announce the new plans"

This isn't particularly new (3rd September) and not necessarily news, from Nick's FB - but shows the gigs are still being thought about. No timeframe though :(

"It's a pity the gigs in Scotland are cancelled in October Nick. I was looking forward to it as well.

John Scott I just noticed the other night on Ticket Scotlands website. It's sad when you look at their A-Z listing it appears to be awash with tribute acts. It would appear people would rather wallow in nostalgia than give new music and bands a chance. But I'm sure we'll see you in Si back up in Glasgow sooner rather than later....it's been too bloody long fella!

Black Submarine at The Lousiana, Bristol, October 24.
Only confirmed date thus far, but apparently others are in the pipeline.
