We promised you rawk to kick off 2003 and the first tour rolls out onto the road, with devil signs a-go-go and wacko jacko cranked up to 11, in just a few days!
Firstly, the marketing bit, concentrate.. Reuben single 'Let's Stop Hangin Out' which hits on the M2 playlist this week, is now coming out on ace little label Badmusic on January 27th.
We can now reveal (below) some of the DiS-selected support bands. Sadly we didn't get our say at every venue - it's kinda sad that a lot of local promoters won't put on a kickass night, instead they want some local band who'll ensure an extra 10 people through the door to see some less than ace act. Anyway, here they are, a few more bands to be announced soon. The Dates are...
Thu 09 High Wycombe White Horse
Fri 10 Isle of White Squadron
Sat 11 Aldershot West End Centre + ENGERICA + SMOTHER
Mon 13 Norwich Arts Centre
Tue 14 Cambridge Boat Race + ENGERICA
Wed 15 Southampton Joiners + METROPOLIS
Thu 16 Exeter Cavern + TYLER
Fri 17 Plymouth Club 103 + TYLER

Mon 20 Newcastle Uni
Tue 21 Glasgow King Tut's + MERCURY TILT SWITCH
Wed 22 Aberdeen Lava + MERCURY TILT SWITCH
Thu 23 Dundee Westport + MERCURY TILT SWITCH
Fri 24 Hull Adelphi
Sat 25 Peterborough Met Lounge + ENGERICA + LITTLE NIKITA
Mon 27 Southend Chinnerys + ENGERICA + SMOTHER

If you're annoyed Reuben ain't coming to your town/city, please beware that they're in the running for the second DiS tour in February with Kinesis which takes in a lot of different places. And we've got more DiS tours with less of a rock edge to announce in the very near future!
DiScuss: See ya there? Anyone got any spare floors/sofas/mansions?
