Today we are very happy that 'Pharmacie', the second album by Apologies, I Have None is finally out in all good record shops, digital retailers and direct through Holy Roar Records (UK), Uncle M Music (EU) and Animal Style Records (USA) on LP/CD/DD! Darker and heavier (emotionally and musically) than anything they have done before, it's been great to see old fans raving about where the band has gone musically, whilst seeing many new fans pipe up about what an awesome discovery this has been for them....
Whilst it has been four (!) years since the release of debut album 'London', the band worked on this record for more than 2 years, with me first hearing bits and pieces all that time ago. Many people don't know this, but two members of Apologies have worked at Resident Studios on and off for some time now, a studio managed and run by my best friend (and ex-Pariso bandmate) Stuart. Through Stuart and Pariso/Apologies both rehearsing and doing bits of recording at Resident Studios, we became friends - with Simon Apologies filling in for me on guitar in Pariso, Joe Apologies recording a few songs for Pariso and Apologies lending us equipment, and their general support. Josh was even supposed to sing on the third Pariso album that never happened.
This might all sound a bit self-serving or 'off-point', but to finally work with such a great band, made of up of great people has been really fun so far and really rewarding. These guys work fucking hard too....just check their tour dates for the rest of the year for proof. Please check out this album and leave any preconceptions you have about Holy Roar or Apologies, I Have None at the door. Thank you to everyone who has already shown their support!
