Back to listing
I’m very pleased to be able to let you all know that my treatment for cancer has been 100% successful and I am now in complete remission. It feels incredible to be back talking to you all and feeling well enough to start being back in action.
The overwhelming support I’ve received from everyone over the last 11 weeks has been a constant powerhouse. Every message, comment, and tweet really has meant a lot and not just for me but for Ross, Daniel and Andrew too.
We started this band 4 years ago and have had our fair share of twists and turns along the way but I guess this posed the biggest challenge to date. The initial feeling of frustration at having to park plans, shows, travelling and ideas became quickly washed away with a much more positive outlook. I’m not saying that chemo wasn’t a hard, difficult process but I think for anyone that is affected by cancer; there is a natural human positive instinct that takes over. For us this certainly happened. Over the last 11 weeks we’ve come together more than ever as a band and our now ready to pick up where we left off and get back out playing for you all.
Since getting the all clear we’ve been busy experimenting and trying new ideas, not just new songs but a new way of playing live. It’s been a time for planning and plotting. The summer and autumn are shaping up to be incredibly busy with 23 festivals and then our own UK and European tour. We’re sorry to have to say we won’t be able to make Selector Festival in Poland this weekend or Parklife in Manchester on the 11th June due to doctors advising against it. Our first show back will be Glastonbury on Friday 24th June.
Again, I can’t stress how important everyone’s support has been for Fenech-Soler and Teenage Cancer Trust. You’ve been amazing. It’s a chapter of the bands career that is now closed but won’t be forgotten.
Looking forward to seeing you all very soon.
