Adam Walton gave a first spin of ‘Into The Dark’ from our new EP on his BBC Radio Wales programme last night. Thanks, Adam!

There’s also a load of other great music, plus an interview with our very own Josef Prygodzicz about Winter Villains’ Welsh Music Prize nomination.

Hello. We have a concert at JT Soar in Nottingham on Friday and we’re very happy about it. We’ve heard a lot of good things about the place, and we’re playing alongside some classy acts. Also, it’ll be our first ever concert in England. This is A S T O U N D I N G yes?

We’re extremely happy and pleased to tell you that we will be releasing a new EP on Shape Records on 18th November 2013.  The EP is called Send A Signal To Me, Love and will be available as a limited edition 12” vinyl.  It’s an honour to work with such a first class label - we’re very excitable about all this.

Have a listen to the track ‘Separate Us’ here:

As some of you will know, we have parted company with bass-meister general, Mark Foley.  Mark joined Hail! The Planes in 2010 and has been an incredibly positive presence over the past three years.  He’s helped the band develop and grow, and has been the source of many a rollicking bass riff.

Mark is now focusing on his own band Shhh…Apes! who you can see at Swn festival next month, and you should, because they’re quality.

Thank you, Mark!


Luv + positivity,


mark foley shhh...apes! hail! the planes h!tp swn farewell

The new Islet music video by Casper White is stunning:

Me and Rob have started a new band. The band is called Spill Kit. Spill Kit is a two-piece rock band. We don’t look like this any more.

Our first gig is on Thursday 12th September 2013. It is happening upstairs in Dempsey’s. We are playing with Blood Sport and Wrongs. It is a Shape Function put on by Shape Records.

We don’t know what we’re doing.  We can’t wait.

This is the video for ‘Moped’ by Pinkunoizu, taken from their new album The Drop.  It was made by Ewan Jones Morris and it’s really very brilliant.  Holly and I feature as ‘Stuff Operators’, which meant we got to throw things about, and generally make a mess.  I’m particularly proud of the bit where I throw an orange and knock a shoe off a stepladder. Nailed it first time, too.

We love Pinkunoizu so we’re dead chuffed to have been involved in some small way.  E N J O Y > >

We’re considerably pleased and happy to be playing the Barely Regal Records stage at this year’s Swn Festival! The line-up is premium in quality, no mistake.

Things are happening.  A record is on the way.  And because of this, our very first live concert tour of the UK is happening in the autumn.  This is tremendously exciting - we can’t wait play our songs about the place.

So far we have these dates confirmed:

2 7 / S E P T   

2 8 / S E P T   CARDIFF

2 9 / S E P T

0 4 / O C T


0 6 / O C T

Which isn’t very many, granted.  But you have to start somewhere. And we’re starting in Cardiff. Which is where we’re from. Which is a good place to start, if you ask me.  

But there are lots of dates that need filling!!!


If you’re a able to help us out with a gig, or know someone that might, or know someone that knows someone that might, the place to get in touch is:

Thank you, we hope this works.

OKAY.  It’s been long enough.  We’re finally going to release some music, play some concerts, make a video, change our line-up - all the predictable things that bands do.  We’re incredibly excited to show you what we’ve been up to all this time, and can’t wait to get playing again.  Just sit tight a couple of months.  Now, ACTION!
