Fête du bruit for Beacon’s six year anniversary!
Fête du bruit for Beacon’s six year anniversary! avatar

Sup basement amigos and amigas?

As you know, I saw Two Door just over two weeks ago at the Fête du Bruit festival in Brittany. Needless to say it was quite the night and so nice to see them again!
The band didn’t have their new light show with them, and though at first I was dissapointed it turned out to be quite nice as there was something quite cosy and humble about the whole thing, it reminded me of their early shows. I am however quite confused as to why they’re not playing more of Gameshow – any ideas?

Anyway, here’s a photo I took during Sun (I think), their closing song, and a photo of myself (middle) along with my fellow basement friends, at the front row (obvs).

In other news…Beacon was six years old yesterday? Whaaat?
What are your memories of it’s release? I remember it being leaked, Alex’s beautiful post on tumblr, not listening to it yet knowing so many people had heard it, and listening to it on their website around a week before it came out. What’s your favourite song(s) off Beacon? Mine are Handshake and Sleep Alone!

On Beacon’s 6 year anniversary, let’s take a look back at some of the groundbreaking sonic moments

Finally, as I pointed out in my previous post, the band have some new sweet merch!

Have you bought anything new from their site recently? I was thinking of getting a t-shirt at the festival two weeks ago but didn’t actually see any at the merch tent! Oh well…next time!

I hope you’re all well, for those going back to school this month I hope it goes well, you’ll do fab I just know it. Keep in touch with us on twitter! Until next time.

Much love,

Hey basement people!

How is everyone? Just a quick post to draw your attention to some fab new merch on the bands’ website.

Do any of you have any of these? If not are you planning on purchasing any of them? All the bands merch is here. What Two Door merch do you have?
I have two t-shirts from the Tourist History era, a red one my mum bought for me late 2010/early 2011, a black one (the one with the cat!) that I bought at a gig in Dublin in March 2011 and a Beacon one I got at a festival in Lorient back in 2012. I also have a tote bag my mum got for me but I can’t remember when that happened! I’m yet to buy a Gameshow t-shirt. I’ve seen lots of your ones all over the basement people internet and you guys look good. What about hoodies and beanie hats, do any of you have some of those?

That’s all for today guys, I’m off to see the band at la Fête du Bruit in Landerneau tonight! Is anyone coming? Let me know on twitter and we can meet up!
In the meantime, don’t forget to check out Maybrit’s post on Community Festival!

Talk soon hermanos and hermanas!

Much love,
Saoirse.

The boys are back!

In the run-up towards their headlining of Community festival on July 1st, Two Door has hit the road this month to France, Germany and Spain at Hurricane, Southside, Solidays, and O Son do Camiño festival, and are loving it!

The band also revealed on Saturday they are releasing limited edition Community festival merchandise, in collaboration with talented artist Babak Ganjei! I’ve seen no merch like it before, but I absolutely love it!

 

Meanwhile, an article by Digital Spy drops hints about Two Door’s future album, with Alex saying that there will be “interesting collaborations”, so exciting!

If you have subscribed to the band, you may have heard that Basement People are now official on Facebook! They also wrote a beautiful description for the group too, showing their recognition:

“Basement People. Assemble.

Over the years we’ve heard stories from you, about new friends you’ve made at one of our shows or in our beautiful little online community. It made us think, “Holy sh*t, that’s awesome! How can we help!?”

So we thought, we need a place where we can chat gig memories, see amazing fan art, look at your gig photos and everything in between!

You guys are on the frontline in the battle for Two Door domination, and that means the world to us. As a thank you we’ll keep you buttered up with exclusive things, news and behind the scenes goodies.

General rules apply, i.e. don’t be a dick, be kind and remember no one is better than you, you’re not better than anyone else.

Simple, right? Those rules also translate well in real life (see, already sharing the wisdom).

Basement People enjoy Basement People

Also, recent interviews with the band hint that new music alongside some ‘interesting collaborations’ that may be debuted at Community Festival!”

It’s a fantastic group, which is really active and kind! Click here if you want to join.

Maybrit and I will be going to Community festival, hope to see some of you guys there!
