After a summer playing Reading and Leeds Festivals and supporting the likes of Muse , it was only right that Deaf Havana returned to Hunstanton to see the fans who have supported them from the start.
A crowd of 400 fans turned out to greet the band as they arrived at Hunstanton’s Princess Theatre to launch a behind-the-scenes DVD about their journey from small-town musicians to festival headliners.
A spokesman for the band said: “The premiere for English Hearts was such a great evening.
“We’ve been lucky enough to travel around the world with this band and it felt right to bring it home to Hunstanton.
“Thanks for all the support, our new album Old Souls is out now!”
Fans waited outside the theatre to meet the six-piece band, which is made up of Lee Wilson, Matthew Veck-Gilodi, Chris Pennells, James Veck-Gilodi, Tom Ogden and Max Britton. They first formed in 2005 at Lynn’s College of West Anglia and the band features three former Smithdon High School students,
These talented musicians launched their DVD, English Hearts, on Monday night.
This fly-on-the-wall film has been produced by John Stone.
It shows the boys against a backdrop of local scenery as they recall their early experiences in the business and travelling miles to play for small audiences.
The DVD includes enough of their music to leave newcomers to the sound wanting to hear more.
The visit ties in with the release of their latest album, Old Souls, on Monday, but it was their 2011 album, Fools and Worthless Liars, that featured the song, Hunstanton Pier.
The band have also announced their biggest ever headline tour to take place at eight locations across the UK in October 2013, including October 24 at Cambridge Corn Exchange.
Rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist, James Veck-Gilodi, said: “I would like nothing better than performing in Hunstanton.”
