Catch us at a UK festival this year!
We want to be clear about how accessible each venue is that we're playing on our upcoming tour! A few points to start with:
- If you have a disability and require a personal assistant for any of the shows let us know in advance and we can ensure your PA does not have to buy a ticket by putting their name on our guest list.
- We will ensure there will be no strobing lights at any of the shows
- All toilets will be gender neutral
- There will be some form of 'Chill out space/corner' at all of the shows
- No one will be turned away if low on funds.
Bristol- The Exchange -
Accessibility: Exchange has a step free entrance from the street to the venue however toilets are not accessible as they are on the first floor.

Leeds- Temple of Boom-
Accessibility: Has a ramp, so no steps, an accessible toilet and the Cafe is quiet. They don't have a lowered section of the bar.
Toilets: Will be gender neutral. Has a wheelchair accessible toilet.
Extra info from a customer's perspective quoted from Euansguide.com:
"The main entrance to Temple of Boom has a step in the door, so wheelchair access is via the entrance used for vehicles. This entrance is a large archway, with double gates shutting it off from the public. Once through the gate, there is a short slope into the main courtyard. On the right is the bar and toilets. There is a concrete ramp into this building, and double doors plenty wide enough to allow a wheelchair through. An accessible toilet is available, complete with grab rails and emergency cords, but full changing facilities are unfortunately not included. The key to this toilet can be obtained from members of staff, who are all very friendly and accommodating. On the left is the room where events (concerts, wrestling shows etc.) takes place. There are two entrances; one has a small lip down into a narrow corridor which is surpass-able in a wheelchair, but if preferred the goods entrance is more accessible, with level access and a wider doorway."
Liverpool- Sound Basement

Enjoy this sweet video to our song 'Sunriser' from our new album. Read about the story behind the song below.
Sunriser is about a serious relationship ending and even though it ended because of choices or mistakes your partner made the burden is still on you to remain the strong one and keep them in a healthy place mentally. They're holding you ransom with their emotions meaning you're not allowed to be too angry or upset with them for what they did. They're protecting their own mistakes from criticism by physically showing you how badly their mental health is as a symptom of their mistakes. It's also about that feeling of letting your guard down and feeling like you're usually good at reading signs (and have even considered yourself a bit psychic) but you're blinded by love and the trust you've invested in someone over many years. You know that sensation of free-falling? It's like that, but the person who would usually catch you is the one who pushed you. It's a disheartening feeling but makes you realise you can only rely on yourself to feel grounded and positive again. Other's actions, apologies or regrets won't give you the closure you need to help you move on. You have to raise the sun yourself. The song explores the feelings of grief you get after something has ended- switching between feeling hopeless and then hopeful. Going back in time to try and recapture the comfort of the past or make things how they were before won't help you feel alive again. Shortly after this happened we went on a European tour.
Video (mostly) filmed while on tour in Europe in 2016. Sunriser is the first single from our second album Counting Pennies in the Afterlife available from https://www.dovetownrecords.com and https://www.krodrecords.eu
Filmed by Jennifer Doveton, Harriet Doveton and Katie Gatt. Edited by Jennifer.
We head out on another European tour on the 19th May with our friends Happy Accidents.
Hey! We've launched this new website to coincide with the pre-order launch of our SECOND album! Click the green top banner to head over to our brand new shop! Where you can buy it digitally, on vinyl, CD and on HANDMADE CDs. There's also loads of brand new beautiful merch and very cool Colour Me Wednesday 'experiences' you can buy over there too.
Let's take a moment to talk about our BUNDLES though. We've named them after our favourite foods. If you're looking for the tastiest and most filling deal- go for our 'Roast dinner AND Gravy'. They include LIMITED EDITION and ONE OF A KIND items. ONLY 5 AVAILABLE!
As you probably know, we're a DIY band. So we're self-releasing this record again on our label, Dovetown. This means we're completely self-funded too so all of your pre-orders contribute to our recording costs, vinyl and cd production, new merchandise expenses and hopefully a bit left over for music video budget if we're lucky! We couldn't do this without all of you, so thanks so much for all the support and help us spread the word about the new record.
If you buy any merch item on our shop you get a free download sent to you instantly of our song 'Blossom' which is a B-side ONLY available on our Don't Tell Anyone 7" released in the U.S.
Also, anyone who buys anything from our shop gets added to an exclusive mailing list where you get special updates, videos and more.
Lastly, if you live in mainland Europe and want to save a bit of money on postage and support another really great label. You'll be able to pre-order the new record on vinyl from Krod Records! And it'll be in a different colour to our issue! More news about the Japanese and U.S releases soon!
Love from your queer babes,
Colour Me Wednesday
