2015: So a band, an '84 van named Vandy Quaid, and a TV theme song roll into Vancouver...
August 22, 2015
Hello friends! It's been a while since we've seen you, but we all know you're looking fantastic.
We've been off the radar lately because we've been working on something pretty neat-o: we were back at Echo Base Studios recording a new song, which will be used as the theme for Calgary's own BScene TV.
We went into the ShawTV studio today to record a short interview, which will be part of the first episode of season two airing on September 14. Special thanks to Will Wilson, Stacie Padbury, and everyone else who helped bring this opportunity about - and check iTunes soon for the single's release!

Through a misty haze of mountain fog, we have emerged from the BC wilderness with Deluge and are still a functioning band. Success! Notable highlights of the trip: Aiden parking our giant van in a small car space; taking over the Revelstoke Aquatic Centre on a double band date; and hanging out at our clearly fancy pool in Vernon.
And just last night, on June 13, we returned to the Calgary scene with a bang at Nite Owl for Deluge's CD release. This was one of the most fun shows we've ever played, and can't wait to come back to this stage again!
We're up next with YYC band Cowpuncher (and guests) on July 4. We'll see you there, friends!

Captain's log: Justin and Taylor have survived their birthday weekend, albeit with mysterious bruises, tormented livers, and some likely embarrassing photos. The show on Saturday went well, though, as did the premiere of our newest tune, "East Again". Hear it at any of the shows we have coming up!
Today is also Justin's dog's birthday....he celebrated by eating a doggie cupcake, wrapper and all. Just what he always wanted.

We've got boatloads of shows up over on our Gigs page now. If you live anywhere between Medicine Hat and Vancouver, swing by and see if we're coming to a city close to you!

Even though Jake treats every day like April Fool's Day, we did make up a little something for today. Cruise over to the photo on our Facebook page to see where the band is headed in the future!
In all seriousness, though, we do have some news coming up pretty quick about songs, shows, and the sweet siren song of summer. We're also brushing up on our alliteration, in case you couldn't tell.

Jiminy jillickers! Our favourite time of year is almost here - when our blood turns green, the leprechauns come out of hiding, and the Guinness flows like some kind of delicious, alcoholic beverage. Yes, St Patrick's Day is right around the corner!
This year, we'll be playing two sets through the night down at the Gateway. We'll even be done by 11 for those of you who dread the thought of work on Wednesday. That's us, always looking out for the little guy.
.........................................................we'll show ourselves out.

Happy new year everyone! It's a bit late, but that's okay.
As you can see, we've been hard at work redesigning the site a bit. You can now see anything from Instagram marked with @craicthelens on the feed to the right, so that's neat...we've also finally set up a merch section of the site! (Bear with us if it takes a while to get the hang of it).
In the meantime, you can see us playing this Saturday for the Come by Chance acoustic comedy event, or on Feb 5 at The Gateway when we open up for Shred Kelly! We hope to see you at one (or both) of them!
