SONGS with no names, an album which is not yet mixed but definite plans for 2018 - welcome to the world of October Drift.

Taunton’s exciting Indie band are looking to make a big splash next year, after ending it in party mode with a home town gig at the Bierkeller.

The band’s drummer, Chris Holmes said: “The gig went really well and sold out. It felt more like a party than a usual show. It was a really good way to end the year. We do not do a home town gigs often but this was just great.

We hope we might be back next Christmas to do another gig in Taunton.

Looking ahead to a New Year, Chris explained what was in the pipeline.

He said: “We are currently looking a doing a single campaign at the end of March.

“We are listening to two tracks at the moment, one of which will make the single.

“We don’t have any titles for the songs as that is the last thing we do. We just leave it until the very end before we give the song its title.

“After that we will be going on a headline tour in March/April.

“We are still negotiating with our management about where the gigs will be and then we will be in festival mode.”

Chris joked when he said: “We will go to any festival which will have us, but we are really lucky and hope to get some good festivals booked.

“We would like to be back at Glastonbury in 2019 as this year is the fallow year.”

Exciting news for October Drift fans is the band has recorded an album.

Somerset County Gazette:

It is not mixed and ready to roll, but the songs on it are all brand new and will not include the two songs which they are listening to as a potential single in March.

Chris said: “We have no immediate date for an album release as we want to get a good deal with the right label. An album release is a big thing for a band and we want to get it right.

“A number of the songs we wrote years and years ago, but they work really well together and there is definitely a cohesiveness with them all. We have only shown half ourselves with the high energy songs, these will be more mellow.”
