Wow, where did 2012 go...?!

And just like that, it's the end of another year. 2012 proved to be a great year for Cherry and the band, from the release of their third studio album; Heard It Here First in February, to being the 'Artist In Session' on Paul Jones' BBC Radio 2 show back in May, to successful appearances at over 9 festivals and Cherry being the guest artist on Bernie Marsden's summer tour.

"This year really has been our best yet," says Cherry, "infact every year has gotten bigger and better and 2012 will really stand out to me as being the year that we nailed our own sound, what with the release of the third album, there's nobody out there doing what we're doing and i'm proud of that. The guys in the band are all on fire, we're the tightest we've ever been and that's the result of the 5 years we've been playing together solidly. Onward and upwards! I can't wait to see what 2013 brings. I want to thank each and every one of you for your support - it really drives us and lets us know that we're doing something right! Stick with us though 'cause the best is yet to come!"

Cherry and the boys will be taking a well earned rest throughout January and most of February to write new material. There are a couple of gigs at the end of January and into February so make sure you take a look at the gig page. This is a good time for them to add new material to the already tight-as-a-gnat's-backside's setlist!

If you missed out on Cherry and the band's session on the Paul Jones show back in May on BBC Radio 2, you'll be pleased to hear that plans are in place for a release of that session this spring! We'll of course keep you informed as to when it'll be available and in the meantime, if you could carry on emailing Paul Jones to carry on requesting Cherry's latest record at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/paul-jones/contact/ and also Jools Holland on BBC Radio 2 athttp://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/jools-holland/contact/ while you're at it! Thank you for helping spread the Cherry sound.

Thanks as ever for your support in 2012! SPREAD THE WORD and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
