CLAIM THE THRONE NEWS
« on: November 22, 2011, 10:45:00 AM »
Hey there you dirty raiders!

Just a quick one to thank all who helped make 2011 a great year for Claim The Throne.

Triumph And Beyond came out in Dec 2010 and we have sold more copies than we could have wished for. Thanks to everyone who brought it, downloaded it, reviewed it, advertised it, learned lyrics from it, uploaded stuff from it, kissed it, ate it etc. The response has really made it feel worthwhile writing music and playing shows, so can?t wait to get the next one out!

We toured the country with Finntroll in March, an amazing opportunity for us to play in front of new and bigger crowds, as well as catch up with some familiar faces. Thanks for coming to those shows early and watching us, headbanging, buying merch and having a chat.

Then in September we raided the country alone for three weeks. There were some big shows, some small shows, heaps of new places, lots of great people, and a bunch of killer bands. Thanks to everyone who supported us along the way ? punters, promoters, friends, and all who lended a hand you know who you are. It was also our first time over to New Zealand and a lot of regional places throughout Australia. Then four Bastardfest shows throughout the trip was a huge amount of fun, we are so stoked that we had the chance to be involved in these events.

Amongst those highlights, there were of course countless live shows in Perth, we must say thankyou to everyone who continues to support us and the local metal scene. Looking forward to our next chance to get drunk with you all!

2012 is looking to be another massive year. In February we are heading to the UK for a 16 date tour with Alestorm, a huge opportunity to increase exposure for ourselves and the Aussie metal scene. We will also be recording a new album which we hope to release during the year, so listen out for a few new tracks at gigs coming up soon.

With all of the above in mind, we are super broke. Our stockroom is filled with leftover merch that we?d love to offload. CDs, shirts, hoodies, g-strings, stubby holders, posters and plenty more going very cheap. All orders help us immensely, so if you?re so inclined please head to http://claimthethrone.bigcartel.com and grab a bargain, we?ll chuck in free stuff wherever we can.

Everyone, thanks again for all the support and for making 2011 an awesome one!

Your allies,
Claim The Throne

yeah, well done. Thats totally awesome. Naturally I was at the Alestorm show and I think you 2 bands are a perfect pair, and I also believe you guys certainly held your own - in fact, I enjoyed your set just as much as Alestorms, and thats saying something. Good luck with it all, and when I get some spare cash I'll be sure to buy a shirt or hoodie or something. Maybe a G-string for casual dress days at work ;)
