In other news, you helped us get in the top five of Creative reviews popular posts last year.http://www.creativereview.co.uk/cr-blog/2012/december/most-popular-stories-of-2012 I think they were baffled at your skills in spreading the word. Keep at it folks, it is much appreciated and quite fun to annoy design folks who has never heard of us before. Mwahahaha.
Anyhow, before March we are planning on doing some shows so keep your eyes open for other news. Here’s one:

We trust this finds you in a glowy, warm and blissful state.
Hopefully you have avoided the traditional festive cold that I was unable to escape from. Nobody deserves this.
Looking back at the year, it has been a good one for Foreign Slippers, with single release, radio play and loads of shows that we have thoroughly enjoyed. We hope you felt well informed and welcome to all of these spectacles.
There’s a couple of shows coming up:
11th Jan – The Enterprise, Camden TICKETS with RAMS’ Pocket Radio
12th Jan – The Halfmoon, Putney TICKETS £6adv or £8 on the door
The Slippers just wanted to say Happy Christmas and a massive thank you for your support this last year. We look forward to the spring, because we have a feeling it is going to be a good one. See you in the new year!
Gabi and her Foreign Slippers
Foreign Slippers play Dublin next week (Tuesday 15th November) supporting Duke Special at the Sugar Club!
Tickets can be found here.
In other gig news, Slippers play The Slaughtered Lamb in London on the 30th November. Come along!
The autumn has come, but fear not, there are things apart from nicely coloured leaves and badly home knitted scarves to look forward to.
A new Foreign Slippers show, avalanche single/ep and avalanche video.
Avalanche is being released as a single, with 3 B-sides and a brand new video. The EP is available on our Bandcamp here, and from iTunes here. The video is here:
2. The War Is Coming
3. Here Comes The Summer
4. I Won’t Back Down
Oct 13 – Upstairs at Garage with Burning Codes Ticket
Oh my, thats a nice show right there. There will be new tunes and generally exciting things going on. This is a headline show, so please come and hang out with us, so we don’t feel lonely and like complete failures-thats never nice.
A couple more London shows later in the year will be announced soon!
Oh, and if you missed it, Foreign Slippers’ ”What are you waiting for” was featured on ABC Family’s ”Pretty Little liars” in the big land of America. Watch the scene here.
It is weird, cause I wake up looking exactly like that every morning.
Come see us play some new stuff, get the Avalanche single with extra new tunes and get yourself sorted out early with Christmas gifts from the blue suitcase.
Gabi, your Foreign Slipper
