A Forest Of Stars To Write New Album

A Forest of Stars has checked in with the following announcement about performing at the Bram Stoker International film festival and update about working on a new album:

"Greetings! First of all, our first two albums are now available to purchase from Prophecy Productions, (as well as lots of other places more local to you). To celebrate this, we also have a new T-shirt & hooded top as well, in the theme of Opportunistic Thieves, with a back print that reads 'May all your bloodlines clot!' If you're into wearing such casual garments, you need to go to the Prophecy store and no doubt they will take very good care of you. All prices include worldwide shipping, which is nice of them. See what I mean?

"Lastly, we have one new gig for the year, a very prestigious event, and one we are rather excited about. We shall be performing at the Bram Stoker International film festival on 30th October in Whitby, England. We'll be playing an extended set, with hopefully a few extra things thrown in here and there. Before our set, there will be a Victorian Vampire play 'The Feast of Blood' and afterwords, at midnight, a live Victorian seance with the very nice spooky Paul Bell. More details can be found here and tickets (£10) can be purchased from here. Doors are 7pm.

"Other than that, we are staying indoors this summer to write our new album. More information and updates on this at a later time.

"Ave!"

A Forest Of Stars Signs To Prophecy Productions

A Forest of Stars has issued the following update about signing to Prophecy Productions and recruiting a new bassist and guitarist:

"First of all, we are proud to announce our signing with Prophecy Productions, home of many, many great artists we admire. We only hope not to lower the tone of such an outstanding and respected label too far. At the moment, there is not much more to be said on this front, however, we have made it our aim to start using the Club's recording facilities by October/November, and are already hard at work writing our new album.

"Secondly, it is with great sadness that Mr TS Kettleburner has decided to leave the Club - or sober up - one of the two, of which none of us can quite remember which. In his place, Both Sir Gastrix Grimshaw and Titus Lungbutter will step up to take his place on guitar and bass respectively, and a brand new fool member has been introduced to the fold: Henry Hyde Bronston, a remarkably talented chap by all accounts, who shall also be providing guitar.

"Thirdly, from the end of April, we have new live performances scheduled, including trips to the continent, more on this in the coming weeks. Finally, our last release on the fine label that is Transcendental Creations shall be an ultra luxurious double vinyl version of 'Opportunistic Thieves...,' which will see the light of day either at the end of this month or the beginning of February - again, more details will follow shortly.

"Thank you for taking the time to read our missives, We remain, as ever, your humble and obedient servants."
