COVID- 19 / MUSIC INDUSTRY - 0
It's everywhere you look and everywhere you don't look it seems.
You can't escape it.
It's only been a little while and I think we are all already sick of the bloody word.
Coronavirus, there I said it.
It's turning our way of life upside down and affecting every single person.
People are getting so sick, there have been deaths in the Uk and around the world.
Yeah we still see memes everywhere and as a nation we do joke about the serious stuff just to feel a little better and try to forget about it for a second.
It is real and we have been told by the authorities that it is indeed now a pandemic and it could affect us personally,
To self isolate seems to be a way of life for the foreseeable future.
And this sucks big time!
For us as a band and other bands out there it's really screwing things up.
The music industry is on it's knees right now.
Huge touring bands are cancelling and postponing tours, shit, even Glastonbury has cancelled this year too.
COUNTING THE KILLERS were due to take to the stage on Friday 3rd April at Chinnerys in Southend on Sea.
This was to be our debut show but because of this viral outbreak this show has now been postponed and is looking like it could take place at the end of May. (fingers crossed)
We are sorry about this, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
We will also be mixing our recording remotely to Dave Merry at Bleeding Ear as he is also going to self isolate as I'm sure we all will be doing the same.
It's the right thing to do as I'm sure you'll agree.
On the brighter side of all this madness, only we could call ourselves COUNTING THE KILLERS and have girl wearing a gas mask, only to have our first show cancelled because of a bloody virus.
You couldn't make it up.
Look after yourselves and each other
