2017!
2017! avatar

Hey guys!

First of all I’d like to wish everyone a very happy new year on behalf of all at basementpeople.com, we hope that you had a nice month of December and that 2017 will bring you everything you hope for! We’d also like to thank Two Door for the magic they brought to 2016, and wish them everything they deserve for 2017.
On a more personnal note I’d like to thank our new team members, Maybrit, Olivia and Ellie who joined us in 2016, for their love of the band, their enthusiasm towards the site and all the hard work they’ve put into to making this fan site the beautiful and friendly place it is. I’d also like to thank Joe and Alexa for everything they’ve done for the band and the site over the last year, or should I last last few years!

Now, back to business. I’m sure seeing the band live is amongst the many things you guys hope for in life, and luckily enough they’re on the road again!

As you know, the band had been touring before Christmas, promoting their new album. Well, after a well deserved break, they’re back on tour. Their first gig of the year is happening tonight in Seoul! I’m sure the band were pretty excited as things were, but some of you guys shared your amazing love and talent with the band, and I can only imagine how they feel now!

 

Thanks for the awesome presents basement people! Korea FTW

How amazing is this?! I mean look at that cake! Such perfection. As for the book, you can see a little bit of what’s inside it in one of Kevin’s latest Instagram stories. Can I just say it really is surreal to see how big the basement people fan base is, and how something that only started out as a fun idea is now being used on the other side of the planet?! To whoever made these beautiful gifts: Thank you!

The band have a few more dates in Asia before heading back to the UK for a pretty big tour that starts at the end of this month! Then they’re playing a few shows in Europe (Paris, anyone?). After that they’re playing some festivals pretty much all around the world, no doubt they’ll be annoucing more of those soon enough! Let us know what gigs you’re going to and once you’ve been do send in your stories/photos for the site!

Now, just a quick word on the documentary: What did you guys think of it? For those of you who missed it, the bands documentary “I Saw The World Today” by Babysweet Sessions was premiered on the 16th of December last year, and is now available to watch online:

I really enjoyed it, there’s something so familiar about hearing them talk about their work, though I must say I was expecting something a little bit longer, after all they had released quite a few short clips from it. But hey, it was still beautiful to watch and listen to as well as being very enlightening. Let us know what you guys thought on twitter!

I’ll be touch soon, until such time stay well, basement folk!

Much love,
Saoirse.

Two Door Documentary!

Guuuys!
How is everyone? I haven’t been on in a while! For those who celebrate Christmas, are you guys looking forward to it? Here’s a gift idea: This band called Two Door Cinema Club released an amazing third album called Gameshow back in October. I’m sure everyone you know already owns it but hey, you never know!
How about you guys send in some Christmas themed Two Door art work? You guys are so talented I’m pretty sure you could create anything! If you’d like to share something for the site, get in touch with Olivia!

Now, for the big news.. As anyone who follows Two Door on social media will know, the band have recorded a new documentary with the very talented babysweet sessions. They’ve released quite a few short extracts of it in which they discuss various topics, which have made us very excited for what was and is to come (the trailer was released weeks before Gameshow was released!).
Well, I’m delighted to say that I Saw The World Today is being premiered..today! (Can I say finally?)

I’ve been waiting for this almost as much as I’d been waiting for the album. I love Gameshow and couldn’t wait to hear the bands new material, but seeing them, hearing them discuss where this record came from is so important, as I truly believe that who they are as people is more important than who they are as musicians. It’s these wonderful people who bring us wonderful music, after all.
Anyway! To finally see I Saw The World Today, here’s what you need to do:

The documentary premiers at 5pm GMT, so be there basement people!

Talk lateeer!

More site updates

Hiya basement people!

As you now know, there are a lot more of us on basementpeople.com! Our new team have been doing a great job helping out on various aspects of the site. We’ve got a beautiful new website, some fun new posts and pages and you don’t have to hear from me every other day, it’s a win-win situation!

Our latest update is our Made in the Basement section. Olivia posted a fantastic selection of art work earlier on today and can I just say I was amazed. I hadn’t seen any of it before it went up so I was as surprised as you guys surely were. Such talent! If you’d like to share your work on the site, contact Olivia via twitter or instagram! You can share art work, a video, a cover.. If you’d like to send in some photos for our “Basement People and the Band” or “The Basement People” sections you’ll also need to contact Olivia as you can no longer upload directly to the site!

fullsizerender-36See what I mean?! (This one is by Olivia herself!)

We also have a fan remixes section. Do you guys think we should keep it? Is that something you’re interested in creating and/or listening to? We don’t have any remixes on it at the moment, so let us know what you think we should do with it!

Thank you once again for being such an amazing fan community and helping this site live with your wonderful contributions! Enjoy your month of December folks, hopefully a lot of you will get to see Two Door in the new year! We may even meet each other somewhere along the way..

Talk soon guys!
Saoirse.
