Dananananaykroyd To Play Intimate Shows Next Week

May 20, 2010 by  

Dananananaykroyd will return to live duties next week with three intimate shows across the UK, under the moniker ‘The Sissy Hits’.

Having spent the past six months holed up in Scotland writing songs for their as yet unnamed second album, the band will head to London, Cardiff and Manchester to play the material, before performing at a few select festivals and recording the album.

Singer Calum Gunn said of the shows, “we wanted to play our new songs to people and get a great feel for them before recording them in a studio atmosphere.”

“We had the benefit of a couple of years feeling our way through the songs on the first album, so we thought playing a few shows under a different name would be a great way to play a set of new ones, rather than a ‘proper’ Dananananaykroyd set.”

Dananananaykroyd’s festival appearances include the main stage at this year’s Rock Ness, and a headlining slot on the Rock Sound stage at brand new Tunbridge Wells-based event, Hevy Festival.

The band will play the following;


28 LONDON The Lexington
29 CARDIFF Clwb Ifor Bach
30 MANCHESTER The Corner
31 NEWCASTLE Evolution Festival


13 SCOTLAND Rock Ness Festival


1 KENDAL Kendal Calling Festival
