RENEGADE MUSIC GO BALLS DEEP IN MUD FOR CHARITY! //
On Saturday 7th May, some of our team here at Renegade will be participating in the Vision Wild Run in Oxfordshire, a 10k multi-obstacle course that involves lots of mud, water, tunnels, climbing, and lots of other horrible things best left to people who drink far less beer.
(Actually, Kieran and James are doing the 5K version, because they are wusses, while Chris valiantly attempts the big 10k one).
Have a look how horrible it actually is at www.wildvisionrun.co.uk
We are running this in memory of Elliot Cornfield, a friend of Chris’s family, who spent his last few days in Helen & Douglas House, a brilliant hospice for children and young adults in Oxford.
We are looking for kind people to sponsor us, and help raise much-needed funds for this worthy charity.
We’d be grateful for support from anyone – our clients, record labels, DJs and other contacts, and those who know what a challenge this event will be for our very-match unfit team.
Please consider donating a few pennies or pounds.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity’s behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
BOY JUMPS SHIP – LOST & FOUND //
British four-piece BOY JUMPS SHIP debuted new track ‘Lost & Found’ on the Radio 1 Rock Show. The track is the second single to be taken from the band’s forthcoming first full-length ‘Wake Up’, which is due for release via AMAZING RECORD CO on April 22nd.
“Our second single ‘Lost & Found’ is one of my favourite songs from the album and has been working great live. We nicknamed it ‘Party Song’ before it was given a name as it just makes you want to dance and jump up and down” – Si Todd
“The first time we played ‘Lost & Found’ live was in Hamburg, Germany. We just wanted to see what it sounded like live and threw it into the set. As soon as we kicked into it the crowd just started jumping up and down, we all just looked at each other and knew instantly it was going to be one of our favourites.” – Gav Gates
Hailing from the North-East of England, BOY JUMPS SHIP have gained a reputation for their energetic, passionate and exuberant live performances up and down the country and around Europe. Touring with the likes of Only Rivals, Young Guns, Arcane Roots and We Are The Ocean to name a few, as well as the UK leg of the 2015 VANS WARPED TOUR, audiences found themselves instantly connecting with their unavoidably addictive, massive melodic choruses and heavy-hitting riffs.
RENEGADE MUSIC COLLABORATING WITH BRAINS AND STEREOPHONICS ON NEW ALE //
Wales’ largest brewer and hospitality retailer, Brains, has teamed up with Welsh rock legends, Stereophonics, to create a new Ale.
The 4.1 per cent pale ale, called Phonics, was created to celebrate the multi-million-selling band’s recent Number One album, ‘Keep The Village Alive’.
Phonics is a vibrant pale ale with complex citrus, fruit and floral hop character with sweet biscuit and caramel malt flavours, balanced with a crisp bitter finish.
It is the first time that Brains has collaborated with a band to brew a beer and the brewery is set to launch the ale in the coming weeks.
