WED 4TH JUN 2008: A MESSAGE FROM BARNEY
I regret to announce that Reuben are unable to play their slot on the 2000 Trees Festival in July, but they would still urge people to go anyway - it should be a great weekend. They are very sorry to disappoint fans who have already bought tickets, as you can imagine Reuben hate cancelling shows. The band are all in good health but the culmination of several pressures just makes it impossible for Jamie to go ahead with it.

The band are not planning any more gigs or releases for the foreseeable future - I should make it clear that the band members are all on amicable terms and are supportive of the need to call a halt.

This seems like a good time to thank everyone who has helped and encouraged Reuben along the way; some of you have been there from the start, others from last week, some are within the music industry, others are simply fans - it doesn't matter which, you are all important and have given great strength to all concerned.

Thank you so much,

Barney
Geronimo! Management

THU 20TH DEC 2007: DISQUALIFIED FROM THE CHARTS
Ladies and gentlemen, it's with great disappointment that we regret to inform you that 'Christmas Is Awesome' has been disqualified from the Official UK Charts. This is due to an error resulting in conflict of information, meaning the wrong song is registered - 'Blood Bunny, Larkhall'. We are absolutely gutted. We really would like thank you all for you support.

This doesn't affect you from buying the song, only it won't count for anything in the charts any more. So if you still want it for pure audible delights then you can still download it.

Cheers.

TUE 18TH DEC 2007: EVERY CLOUD HAS AN AWESOME LINING
Unfortunately, due to some serious circumstances, our heroes Audit have had to pull out of the Christmas show on friday, which is totally rubbish. However! We have succeeded in booking Jim's favourite band since last week, 'Extravagatron', to replace them at the front of the bill, so it's not all bad.

Jim says, "They're like the musical equivalent of a baboon with a hammer. They're going to take your mind apart cell by cell and then reconstruct it back to front."

Fucking hell!
