Welcome to the July News from Gyroscope!

So many things to report this time around Gyrofiends! Tours, singles, videos, photos and a whole swath of Gyroscope goodness to help you claw through winter (or summer, wherever this finds you)

Firstly let us extend our thanks to all the fantastic crowds that well and truly turned it out for Gyroscope's huge Cohesion Tour. By all reports the shows were a mess of sweaty, singing bodies and a truly rockin' time was had by band and fans alike. With some solid backing from supports The Vasco Era and After the Fall, we hope it was well worth to wait to see the Gyro's pull out all the stops (and even some never before heard live album tracks!) Here are some links to photos & reviews.

For anybody who missed out on Cohesion Tour merch in the thick of it, there will be some items from the tour available at the Official Gyroscope Merch store ( http://www.fist2face.com.au/?gyroscope) in the next week or two. We shall keep you posted.

Jam packed right in the middle of the Cohesion Tour, the Gyro's packed their wares and headed off to Wollongong for the filming of their very exciting Channel [V] Live show. The Waves venue was jam packed with lucky fans who managed to scoop up the winners tickets, and the amazing Channel [V] set made it one special show indeed. We hear the boys even chucked in a sneaky Nirvana cover. Missed out? The show is being aired on Channel [V] a bunch of times this month, head to www.vmusic.com.au for details.

If that is simply not enough of a Gyroscope visual delight for you, fair enough. There is always more. If you haven't seen the very adorable video for current single Baby, I'm Gettin' Better then you can do so here. What's more is that there is a behind the scenes of the video now streaming on the killer Gyroscope website. Find out how it was made and watch the boys talking about it at http://www.gyroscope.com.au/. Our buddies at iTunes are peddling a very sweet deal as we speak, where you can buy the Baby, I'm Gettin' Better single PLUS the video for the track for a meagre $1.69. Hit that deal up right here: http://itunes.apple.com/au/album/baby-im-gettin-better-single/id375152099

Keeping the live ball rolling (as usual) Gyroscope brought out their show for two special intimate performances in Melbourne and Perth courtesy of Nova. The Melbourne date took place in an aeroplane hanger (and had Dan rockin' it from the wing of a very old plane!) while the Perth show went down at the iconic Astor Theatre. If you missed those shows you can take a squiz at photos form the Astor date right here: http://www.novafm.com.au/Nova937/Photo_Gyroscope-Live-at-the-Astor_133457

Oh, and now onto live recordings! If you cast your minds back a little earlier in the year you'll remember that Gyroscope played Triple J's annual One Night Stand, this year in Alice Springs. Well, it was aired as Triple J's Live at the Wireless last month. If you want to live (or re-live) the live moments then head over to the Triple J website (http://www.triplej.net.au/) to listen to some lovely live sounds courtesy Gyroscope.

There are some more killer live moments to come, with Gyroscope poised to take to stages in Coolangatta, Cairns, Rockhampton, Penrith and more over the coming months! Get down to a show if you can, we promise that you will not regret it. All tour dates for your excitement below as always.

Wow, a huge haul of things have been presented for you this month. We hope you're not too overwhelmed, and that you will stick around for next month as we bring you the very best and most thrilling Gyroscope related news.

Love,
GYRO HQ xx
