They will be entering the studio this Autumn to record their bonus track, which will be appearing on the Fall To Earth limited edition 10". This release will be available on Nasoni Records, release date TBC.
The split 7" release with Queen Elephantine is still happening. This has been delayed by almost a year due to a chain of different events and circumstances which we are currently trying to sort out. Both Aluna and Queen Elephantine are extremely eager to release this. Whilst they are waiting for a release date and whilst they are in the studio, Aluna will be recording a new version of "Song of The Sun."
Grifter has just returned from playing a blinding set in London at the Ninehertz all dayer. This took place Saturday, 2 August at Camden Underworld. Ten other bands played, including Rise Above`s Gentlemans Pistols, End of Level Boss, and Suns of Thunder.
Ollie has recently been interviewed by Lee at The Sleeping Shaman. You can read the interview here.
