Goodbye 2020…

Thankfully we’ve finally reached the end of 2020, here’s to a better new year for us all. This year has been one to forget for the band for obvious reasons. 2021 will hopefully be a happy and healthy one and vaccines will help to return some normality. As the new year chimes ring out around the world, please raise a glass to Dave, gone but never forgotten. Fly straight DG x

New track on 6 Music

On her BBC 6 Music show yesterday, Liz Kershaw played a snippet of a new track ‘If Something’s Gonna Kill Me’. Although it’s only an excerpt of the song, it’s a lovely taste of things to come with the band’s new material. Have a listen here (it plays at about 1 hour 50 minutes in)

Festive felicitations...

On behalf of the band, management & crew, we’d like to send season’s greetings and best wishes to the familyinblack worldwide. As another year draws to an end, we look back and reflect on the past year. It has been a year blighted by the Covid pandemic around the world, a year that so tragically robbed us of keyboard maestro Dave and a year of frustration & postponed gigs. Hopefully, we can all start to get back on track in 2021 and get out on the road as soon as it’s safe for the band, crew and the audience to do so. Also, in the pipeline, the band’s next album is taking shape and we look forward to bringing you updates on that in the new year. So, in the meantime, please enjoy the festive period but stay safe & healthy. See you in ‘21 all at Stranglers HQ x

Win Dave’s keyboard & help the crew!

In support of Stagehand’s #ILoveLive campaign, the band have donated one of Dave’s keyboards used on the last UK tour, handwritten lyrics signed by JJ and VIP tickets for the upcoming Full Final UK tour. Proceeds from the campaign will be donated to the hardworking crew behind the scenes who are so critical to the success of any live gigs. The Covid 19 Pandemic has decimated live concerts and has severely impacted the incomes of countless roadies & techs. For a chance to win this amazing prize and to support the men & women backstage, please click on the link here. Good luck & thanks for supporting the crew!

A message from JJ: ‘We couldn’t work without our crew. It couldn’t happen without them, without their professionalism, without their dedication. When you see us you really only just witness the tip of the iceberg. Not only are they ambassadors for us but also problem solvers, sometimes friends, always with our best interests at heart.

‘So during these unprecedented times , when work is rare, if at all, we mustn’t forget those invisible but vital cogs in bringing music and entertainment to the millions of people who appreciate it.

‘Please support our crews and technicians who do all the work while we get the glory’.
