Day one in switzerland.

February 10, 2011

Hey! I’m Grant and I’ve been acting as a diary-man Meaning I’ve had the chance to record all that the guys do, and pass it on to you guys!

Day one in Switzerland.

After a 3 hour train ride we had finaly made it and even if the last ride inspired the guys to write a new song! I’m not looking forward to the next! Once we got settled, we met up with “Bill” the owner of “The Legends” what a guy! The gig went very well and we sold a few CDs (great sucsess!)
After we where done and fed we headed down to Bill’s appartment to get some well deserved rest! The guys have been working very hard on the 100 gigs in 100 days! So show them some love!


We will create our own world!!!

January 10, 2011

We had a day out at Edlingham Castle in Northumberland near Alnwick to shoot a video for “Our World”a track from our new album…  It Was a freezin cold morning and we were surprised to still see snow up there but the scenery is amazing..  and the winter lighting made for a great video setting!!

Well instead of going on about it …  its probably best to just show you the video …. so here it is…

“Our World” by We Steal Flyers – Available at all good online retailers incl. iTunes,Amazon and Napster

 

We also have another new video coming soon which was shot by inHouse Films for the song “No Secret” and this will be with us very soon and is already looking like its going to be something special..

Thanks again for everyones support and if you want to help us out .. please share the video with your freinds and familys and help put northumberland on the map!!

..Dont forget there is a lot more videos over on our youtube channel of us playing live and videos! You can find our official channel here… http://www.youtube.com/user/westealflyers

2 Multiplied by 4 equals Cool Photos

May 6, 2010

Last week We Steal Flyers ventured out into the wild wilderness of Ellington to find a disued railtrack.. The mission was to take Dazlin from www.darrenturnerphotography.co.uk along and get some shots for the new EP & Single which will be relelased soon.

Althought dazlin was a bit sceptical about the weather and light for the photos we carried on regardless and strolled around the place clambering over electric fences and climbing walls as high as castles.. (not really.. we climbed through one small wire fence which had half the wires missing)

Dazlin managed to get a few shots of us and they just came back … so here they are… hope you like them!

Dont forget to stop by Darren’s page HERE and check out his amazing photography of Northumberland..

Until the next adventure!!   Cyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Deg & Shaggy!

… Day 1 & 2 @ Mill studios

April 17, 2010

Yesterday was a bit hectic so sorry for the late update!!

But for those who dont already know We Steal Flyers are in the studio at the moment recording there EP/mini album .. @ mill studios in alnwick with mr.Ally Lee (im sure ive seen him on a film before..think it was called bigfoot & the hendersons or something like that… Good film!! well done ally..he seems to have more hair lately though..)

Friday kicked off with a bumpy drive to the land of NO McDonalds?? … Alnwick must be the only place that isnt allowed a peasant drive thru…

We got to the studio at 10am and cracked straight on with “Track” and “I Hurt” which were just about completed by the end of the day.. Derek even wrote a little ditty on his new found friendly instrument the Kalimba which ended up through out the whole track “I Hurt” ..   By the time the song was finished and derek had been plucking away at the little thing.. (Kalimba …not his own little thing) .. poor degs fingers were all blisters which rendered him useless for the rest of the day…  He solidered on and kept saying “Thats rock n rol for ya!!”  .. good man!!

We also dragged an old church organ into the studio which was left outside at the local tip and Ally blasted a few chords out on it over the same song.. unfortunatley some of te keys were missing so we only had limited amount of chords he could use…  came out good in the end though!!

Alltogether “Track” and “I Hurt” sound great and shaggys little choir boy harmonies are splattered all over them in true Allymaniac style!

Day 2

The second day and gits 11:30am and weve just about nailed the main parts for “No secret”..  Degs just been for the bacon sarnies while (me)shaggy gets the guitar part down…  nearly time for my spooky homo girlypants “oooooooooooooohhh oooooooooooweeeeeeee ohhhhhhhhhhh” ..  apparently ally says its called singing in Falcetto but I thought that was a kind of cheese…

Ally has shouted “PUMP ORGANNNNN!” which i thought he meant he had  a problem with flatulants…  but he had an idea for No secret.. so hes blatting away on the keys now!!

well thats it for now .. back to work.. and we’ll get some photos up later on so you can see whats been gannin on!!

taddaaaaaaaaaaaa!!
