28th December 2014 - A newsletter from Leo
Hi, and a Happy, Healthy and Successful 2015 to you!
The past twelve months have gone by so quickly. We'd like to thank everyone who came to see us play: it's been great fun and we're looking forward to the next run. We have a lot of things lined up for the New Year. In response to your many requests we've recorded a double live CD 'The Road" which will be released on February 13th. Signed copies can be pre-ordered here on our web site, here.
The song titles are as follows:
Where The Blues Began, Pork Pie Hat, Let The River Flow, The Smoke, Gonna Dance On Your Tombstone, Going Home, Fifty Thousand Miles Beneath My Brain, Love Like A Man, The World Won't Stop, The Sound Of Goodbye, The Devil To Pay.
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Poison, No Deal, Tennessee Plates, Do You Wish You Were At Woodstock. I'm Going Home, Bad Blood, and King Of The Blues.
'The Road Tour 2015' kicks off in March and full details will be announced on our web site as more dates come in. We are frequently being asked about UK dates. If there is somewhere you'd like to see HSS play, please tell your local venue about the band!
Regarding the USA: We are confirmed for some USA/Canada shows in July and August. Details will be included in the next newsletter.
It's always good to hear from you so please follow us on our website, Twitter or on Facebook. See you in 2015!
Orders are now being taken here for the new HSS double album - THE ROAD
15th December 2014 - an update from Joe
As I write this newsletter the HSS tour bus is flying down the Autobahn on our way to tonight's show in Freudenburg. This will be the 10th show of this tour to date and we are having great fun. We have been recording all the shows over the past month and will be releasing the cream of the crop as a double live CD early next year so keep an eye on the HSS website and Facebook for updates and a chance to pre-order.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who's turned out to see us on this tour so far - we've had an amazing time and truly appreciate your support. It's such a great feeling to see the band building momentum with new fans at every show.
We will be on tour again in Germany in March promoting the new live album. The dates and venues will be announced very soon, and for our American friends I can confirm there will be shows in the USA next year, so we are looking forward to that also.
See you on the road,
2nd August 2014

Newsletter from Leo - 13th March 2014
The February/March HSS tour ended all too soon last Saturday and we want to thank you for giving us such a fantastic welcome. We had a great time playing for you and we will never stop touring as long you want to hear us play.
The new HSS CD is selling hot off the presses and I want to thank you all for that too. It’s encouraging to have such a quick and positive response.
Later in the year we will be doing a limited edition run in vinyl...

HSS CD and Tour
Leo Lyons and Joe Gooch kick off the year with a new Hundred Seventy Split CD simply titled HSS. The CD is available now, and a song stream is available for free download HERE. A tour of Germany and Switzerland starts on 11th February. Check HERE for dates.
Update from Leo - 2nd February 2014
I just flew in from Nashville where the temperature has been well below freezing for over a month. I’m now back in Sunny Cardiff; I’m joking of course it’s raining here and also very cold. However the outlook is sunny, metaphorically speaking anyway.
Friday the 7th is the release date for Hundred Seventy Split’s new CD H.S.S. Tomorrow Joe and I will be in the label office signing copies ready to be mailed out to you; Many thanks to Nicki for preparing the orders ahead of time.
Thank you to those who have ordered pre-release copies. It’s very much appreciated. Your CDs will be with you as fast as the post allows.
The HSS tour starts on the 11th Feb and the dates are already on the web site.
We would have done more HSS shows on this run but we had expected to play Feb/March dates with TYA until Ric and Chick told us on December 30th that we had already been replaced in the band. Life goes on and we wish them both the very best of luck.
We're looking forward to the upcoming tour. It’s always great fun for us and we hope it will be for you too. We will play songs from both HSS records plus some requested TYA classics. If you have any songs you’d like to hear please write to Joe, Damon or me care of our web site and we will do our best to fit them in. So far you have requested ‘Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Love Like A Man, 50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain and Woodchoppers Ball.
HSS are now accepting bookings for the rest of the year so please check back periodically on our web site for updates.
That’s all for now. See you somewhere in the next few weeks out there on the road.
