Soooo sad I can't get a babysitter and can't get off work on such short notice - looking forward to the videos that someone hopefully will make!

Verenita, I hope it's Vyv!

An email from Wynona at Fortitude...

Hi John,

Hope you're well.

Thanks for getting in touch. I'm glad Fortitude has been the source of your news!

In terms of the new album, there's a lot of rumours flying around the press world at the moment surrounding it. I can't 100% confirm an album, because we don't deal with Damien's management/PR, BUT, we have seen many publications who do deal with them confirm a new album (for example, if you read Nialler9's piece).

Sorry I can't be of more help. I would be 99% sure there'll be an album on the way given the way press have been reacting lately and discussing things, but unfortunately I can't give you the 100%. Nialler9 should help though.

Thanks again John,
Wynona.

Nialler9's article

http://nialler9.com/damien-rice-is-p...-next-tuesday/


Response from nailer9:

Industry sources. The SXSW show was due to happen but was pulled the next day after it was announced because, I was told, that the album wasn't done yet.

I tried to get a ticket, thought I'd figure out the rest later.
Sold out already.

Wow that was ****ed up. When i finally got out of the queue it said "SOLD OUT".
Then i reloaded the Homepage instantly was shown the "buy now" button and voila i was able to buy a ticket. When finished no confirmation was shown but the queue again. But i got an E-Mail confirmation so i guess i got a ticket

Good to see some people got tickets. Twitter is going nuts with people saying the site crashed/they are still in the queue/this is a shambles!

Wasn't that fortunate myself. Ah well.

thats odd. i only was offered a ticket for "Box Office Pickup", so i assumed there weren't any print-at-home tickets available, which naturally makes selling them on ebay a bit harder.

Sold out in less than 60 seconds reportedly.

This media hype in Ireland has really boosted his profile again and no doubt a sold out in 60 seconds gig will do even more.

Luckily a friend of mine got a ticket for me (praise jebus!).

I'm actually really excited to revisit seeing Damien live again and in my favourite venue possible. It's been a long wait!
