In advance, the band will be playing a special one-off gig at Cardiff Castle on Saturday 3rd October, previewing a number of songs from this album (no artwork yet available, I’ll be really interested to see if they use the poster design).
The band first headlined the castle back in 1998 in front of 10,000 people and in keeping with this they’re selling tickets at the exact same price for the afternoon show – at £12.50 each.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Wednesday 9th September) on Stereophonics.com, first-come, first-served.
Interesting to see the Stereophonics use of social media, and would love to see why they decided to call their album this, or just knew it would get them lots of publicity! Clutch have also used the words in lyrics, although this article explains why.

Thanks for the comment, led to: “What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? There’s a poster that somebody bought the other day which said “keep calm and carry on”. That’s a bit of good advice, especially for us. That sums up our life.”
Mass Communications Academic, @MMUBS. British Home Front Propaganda posters as researched for a PhD completed 2004. In 1997, unwittingly wrote the first history of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster, which she now follows with interest.
