Another great show at The Hollywood & Vine, this time at the 4 day, bank holiday Skullfucker Festival.
We arrived to find that the bands were running a little later then scheduled which worked to our advantage as a lot of people turned up later in the night.
Crowd reaction to our set was awesome, sound was great too, sounded really heavy compared to when we played at the Roller Dames gig. We had lots of positive feedback from the show from both the audience and the organisers themselves. We also even got asked for autographs which is a first for us.
Setlist was a mixture of old stuff and a couple of new songs off the forthcoming album, Jackhammer, Breaking Point & Unlucky for some went down especially well, Jackhammer especially sounded more brutal then ever
Thanks to all involved in organising the gig and to everyone who came down to watch us including the guys from Pastel Jack & Heat-Ray
Setlist: Triskaidekaphobia - Devastated by reality - Jackhammer - The longest day - Breaking Point - Unlucky for some

12/08/2011 - Hollywood n Vine, Hull
Awesome show tonight in aid of the Hull's Angels Roller Dames!
Thanks to all who stayed around to watch us. Felt especially good knowing that one of the original members of black metal masters VENOM was in attendance tonight and was even better to learn that he loved our set.
We played a set of mainly new songs tonight with the exception of opening track NGW. It was also mentioned that our bassist James got some of his equipment stolen the previous night so it was a good night to release some of his anger!
All in all a pretty awesome night! Thanks to The H.A.R.D girls for putting the show on, the other bands for playing some blinding sets and for all the people who watched us and supported us!
Here's to many more to come!

Just a quick update on how things are progressing within the band.
Within the next few weeks, we will be sharing lots of news and new XIII things with you, we have the Website which will be going online within a week or so, we have all the album artwork to reveal and we will have some more information on the actual album itself.
The majority of the album is complete, with only Vocals and a little tweaking here and there to do. We have been experimenting with different sounds and techniques which we wouldn't have even thought about doing before we went into the studio and the outcome has been more than a positive one.
We will be keeping you all posted as soon as we know new things so keep looking for new updates
Thanks to you all for your support
