When the tour first went on sale, frontman Barry “Baz” Mills declared, “Straight back at it, it’s what we do innit! If you came out to see us with Ugly Kid Joe and you enjoyed the experience then why not come and see us again on the ‘TRIGGERED’ headline tour! Loved playing tracks from the new album, gonna shake it up with some more new one’s cos they have been really fun to play… hopefully we are hitting up a town somewhere near you, grab a ticket and come join the fun!”
Earlier this month, the band was thrilled to pass on proceeds from their fund-raising range of ‘Forget The Haters’ merchandise to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, posting the following message to fans on their social media:
“Thank you to everyone who helped raise awareness as part of our anti-bullying campaign and in turn raised money for the wonderful The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, we received a very cool message from Alison at The Sophie Lancaster Foundation about where your money has gone – result.
“Thank you so much for your involvement in this campaign that we know was close to the hearts of the band. We will use the funds to cover a session in a school that really needs it.” – Alison
