Creature – ‘Bored’ New promo video – VIDEO and PHOTO FEATURE

Creature – Bored

Lots of firsts with this one. My first video as director and editor. Matthews first video with Blank Slate (top notch job too!) Creature’s first release and first video! First time on Punktastic and the first storage trailer I’ve shot in!

Shot at U Hold the Key storage in Heaton (thank you to the lovely folk there for making it happen!) on a really hot sunny afternoon. 4 hours of takes and fun. We wanted something fast, snappy and edgy, with a trippy black and white vibe.

Top 10 gigs of 2016

1. Shellac – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club – May 2016

I had to pick this one. I’ve been waiting 15+ years to see them. It was worth the wait. Amazing.

Chris Hanna – Guitar
David Scott – Bass
Adam Hay – Drums

What have you been up to since we last saw you opening for Heck earlier in 2016?

“Not as much as we would like, as we had a lineup change so spent the whole summer finding a singer, so we’ve spent most the time in the practice room. However, we have recorded our first single Far Stranger with this lineup and that will have a video too. Also we have just signed to Domino PR, really looking forward to working with them.”

New lineup, will this bring a different dynamic or sound to the band?

“Definitely. I think it’s just a natural progression. We feel with Sam coming in we are finally heading in the direction we all really want. It feels like we are all pulling in the same direction.” 

“Well we have only played a couple in this lineup, but we played Lounge 41 in Workington, and we really enjoyed that one. Going out of your home town for gigs, especially with a new lineup can always go either way but we nailed it, and the crowd really liked us. Plenty of bad ones from old lineup but would rather not waste our breath talking about them as they are not relevant anymore.”

What is next for Eujenics?

“We are releasing our new single Far Stranger, in October/Nov with a video. It will be available on iTunes, Amazon etc..We have signed with Domino PR like we said, who we cant wait to work with. Gig wise, we are at Trillians supporting Twin Heart on 11th Oct. We are playing our own little halloween party at Little Buildings on 29th Oct. We are playing Bannermans in Edinburgh 26th Nov, before we go back into the studio December to start work on our new EP which we plan to release in Feb/March next year.”
