First of all I’d like to wish everyone a very happy new year on behalf of all at basementpeople.com, we hope that you had a nice month of December and that 2017 will bring you everything you hope for! We’d also like to thank Two Door for the magic they brought to 2016, and wish them everything they deserve for 2017.
On a more personnal note I’d like to thank our new team members, Maybrit, Olivia and Ellie who joined us in 2016, for their love of the band, their enthusiasm towards the site and all the hard work they’ve put into to making this fan site the beautiful and friendly place it is. I’d also like to thank Joe and Alexa for everything they’ve done for the band and the site over the last year, or should I last last few years!
Now, back to business. I’m sure seeing the band live is amongst the many things you guys hope for in life, and luckily enough they’re on the road again!
As you know, the band had been touring before Christmas, promoting their new album. Well, after a well deserved break, they’re back on tour. Their first gig of the year is happening tonight in Seoul! I’m sure the band were pretty excited as things were, but some of you guys shared your amazing love and talent with the band, and I can only imagine how they feel now!
How amazing is this?! I mean look at that cake! Such perfection. As for the book, you can see a little bit of what’s inside it in one of Kevin’s latest Instagram stories. Can I just say it really is surreal to see how big the basement people fan base is, and how something that only started out as a fun idea is now being used on the other side of the planet?! To whoever made these beautiful gifts: Thank you!
The band have a few more dates in Asia before heading back to the UK for a pretty big tour that starts at the end of this month! Then they’re playing a few shows in Europe (Paris, anyone?). After that they’re playing some festivals pretty much all around the world, no doubt they’ll be annoucing more of those soon enough! Let us know what gigs you’re going to and once you’ve been do send in your stories/photos for the site!
Now, just a quick word on the documentary: What did you guys think of it? For those of you who missed it, the bands documentary “I Saw The World Today” by Babysweet Sessions was premiered on the 16th of December last year, and is now available to watch online:
I really enjoyed it, there’s something so familiar about hearing them talk about their work, though I must say I was expecting something a little bit longer, after all they had released quite a few short clips from it. But hey, it was still beautiful to watch and listen to as well as being very enlightening. Let us know what you guys thought on twitter!
I’ll be touch soon, until such time stay well, basement folk!
