Check out this article from online magazine MAGNET, where Mike and Bruce suggest songs for a mix tape!
We have two Exclusive Studio Session Performance videos on Muzu.tv. They are for ‘In a Broken Promise Land’ and ‘Hurt’. You can watch them below.
The Journey Tour has made a fantastic start, with some amazing shows in Scotland and Newcastle.
Here is a selection of photos from the shows
Awesome gig in Glasgow, loud, hot and sweaty, rocked Sauchiehall Street to the core. The new tracks sounded terrific and fitted in perfectly. ‘Home of the Brave’ was incredible and I was amazed at how well ‘The Last Ship Sails’ rocked. Huge amounts of emotion and energy to a really up for it and appreciative audience. What a brilliant journey to be on!
Marbles – BC Forum
To celebrate the release of our new album ‘The Journey’ we have decided to hold a competition… and entering could not be simpler! Take a picture that you thinks symbolises ‘The Journey’ and upload it to Twitter using the hashtag #bcthejourney (all in lowercase). This image could be taken on your way to work, while walking the dog, while on the way to one of our shows in April or May or anything that you feel represents your own ‘Journey’.
We can accept any images uploaded using Instagram, Twitpic, yFrog, Flickr and Plixi. Just remember the hashtag! Please ensure all entries are your own or the content poster will be held responsible for any claims against the content.
All images uploaded using the hashtag (#bcthejourney) will be showcased on a special section of the official Big Country website (along with some of our own ‘Journey’ snaps), and we will personally choose the winner in June. The winner of the competition will receive a personalised copy of ‘The Journey’ signed by all the band. We have uploaded a few examples and we will continue to do so throughout the tour. You can see these by visiting the dedicated page on this site!
We are pleased to report that the brand new album from Big Country, “The Journey” has hit the charts at number 37 in it’s first week of release.
