April 26th 2011
It's been a while but we have a lot of gigs coming at you over the next few weeks.
6th May - Supporting "Die So Fluid" at the Frog & Fiddle, Cheltenham, UK with Idiom and Gag Reflex.
11th May - Live and Loud event at the Hen & Chicken, Bristol, UK
29th May - the Cellar Bar, Bracknell, UK
F.Y.I. we're not putting UK at the end of these because we're hitting Europe or the States soon (we wish!) It's just that certain promoters, lovely as they are, have gotten a little confused and advertised our gigs as being in places in America.
Hope to see you all there and that you all enjoyed the Easter break!
April 4th 2011
We have a gig coming up this Thursday 7th April.
Acoustic Live Lounge at Slak Bar, Cheltenham. Doors open at 7pm and it's £2 to get in.
There will be four acoustic acts throughout the night, in the form of Evan Burgess, The Roundel Target, Strange Enjoyment, and our friends I, The Lion!
Also if you fancy coming to the after party, head to The Boogie Lounge for 'The Big Sleazy', an electro-swing night.
Should be a great night and we'd love to see you all there!
March 23rd 2011 (part 2, it's only a small one, promise!)
So the last 24 hours have made us pretty damn happy. As way of saying thanks to the lovely SoundCloud people, we replied with a short private message... that sounded really dorky, but it was just us being us. We expected to be judged.
Turns out, dorky Cynotia is a good thing. Who knew?
It went from being private to being posted on their Twitter (with our permission of course), so we figured we'd post it on here, and share the dorky joy!THANKS MARIE! from Cynotia SCOTD! by Cynotia
Signing out... again.
March 23rd 2011
OMG! It's been a pretty awesome night for us. At about 7pm yesterday we were made SoundClouder Of The Day!
Thanks to this we have had over 1000+ listens... WITHIN A FEW HOURS!
I wont lie, we sat there hitting the refresh button every other minute to watch it jump up... a bit like that scene in the Social Network.
Anyway, considering we were averaging 50+ a day before this, we'd say that's pretty good.
So this is essentially a massive shout-out to say thank you to everyone who listened, downloaded, favourited, commented on the tracks and of course to
Marie Elliott of SoundCloud
who picked us as SCOTD.
If you're a SoundClouder check her out at: http://soundcloud.com/ma_remix
And as always us at: http://soundcloud.com/cynotia
Also, if you're in the area, we're playing at 24/7 in Cheltenham for Global Footsteps Charity Fundraiser on April 1st.
Thanks again to everyone!
March 17th 2011

March 14th 2011
Hey guys, so you know how we said the album was going on sale on Friday? Well some of you more observant types may have noticed that it didn't. This is mainly due to unforeseen errors, which we're working on!
So as way of apology, we've uploaded a cover we did on Tone Radio back on Feb 17th.
As you can no doubt see from the picture above, or if you've seen us live, you'll know what to expect.
We'll keep you posted on when the albums up, hopefully it will be soon!
Until then, enjoy!
March 11th 2011
So today is officially the release so get yourselves over to the 'Launch' page for the goodies!
As promised the single '10 years' is available for FREE download as well as innocence. To top it off, the video for '10 years' is also now up on the Tube.
You can view this on the launch page or by following the link above.
Hey, quick thought: Remember when "the tube" used to mean the TV?
Hope y'all be dropping by the Frog & Fiddle (Cheltenham) if you're within the vicinity tonight. Going along with what seems to be a theme, the gig is also free!
Last but not least, the album will be available to buy soon. We're having a few technical issues with that. We'll keep you posted.
Have a great weekend!
March 6th 2011
Why hello there!
This week has been busy and fun (as usual), but instead of giving you a free streaming track to listen to, we've got a bit more!
Where do we start...? Basically, check your diaries, and pencil us in for this coming Friday, the 11th.Firstly, we shall be releasing the video for "10 Years" along with the track itself and "Innocence" for free download, so make sure you get yourself this free bundle, you'll be the envy of your friends.
Our album "i would fly..." is also out that day. To say we're excited is a massive understatement. You can download the album for £4, or get the CD for £5, which includes the "i would fly..."s that some of you sent us. However, there will be a few days delay with the CDs being ready, unfortunately, but if you want to pre-order one, just fill in your details on the Mailing List and we'll whisk one to you ASAP.
Finally, again on Friday 11th, we'll be playing a free gig at The Frog And Fiddle in Cheltenham with Aftermath, Gagreflex and Tides. Doors open at 8, we're on at 8.20, and the only pennies you'll have to spend will be on yourself.
Thanks for all the support you've given us so far, and hope you're looking forward to Friday like we are!Also, if you're a Facebooker (who isn't?!), click on the "Like" button at the top left of this page.
You Stay Classy,

So here's something to try and help you forget about the grind that is a Monday - You can listen here, or you can head to the music page and check out the new track we've been working on named "Rembrandt".
Glos Tone Beret was AWESOME! Thank you to all those involved for making it such a good night, not to mention a pretty good first gig! Those of you unfortunate enough not to attend, you missed an amazing night with some great bands and a cover to whip your hair to.
Last but not least: the album is almost polished up and ready to go, so look out for that going on sale very soon!
Feb 26th 2011
Just a reminder that Glos Tone Beret is tonight so get your French on and get down to the Frog And Fiddle to see some awesome bands!
Feb 15th 2011
Hey guys! Busy week again, as usual! Just want to say a massive thank you to everyone for their support, in seven short days we've had almost 200 plays and 500 views of the site. As thanks for being awesome, all eight tracks are now available to listen to!
Let us know what you think, and if you want to preorder a beautiful hard copy, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, post on our FaceBook wall, or catch us on Twitter.
You can also check us out on Tone Radio (http://www.fromheretoear.com/) on Thursday morning, or come down to see us and some other great bands at Glos Tone Beret at the Frog And Fiddle, Cheltenham on Feb 26th.
