A couple of months ago, we welcomed our new guitarist Stefano Lo Cascio to the Cigars Of The Pharaoh fold. He's the cool cat standing on the left of the picture above. The other good news is that we're now a two-guitar line-up. Figgy is moving from four strings back to six, and bass is being handled by a secret wizard in a box next to Toby.
Speaking of Toby, he was away for a few weeks, but now he's back and we're back in rehearsals preparing for a couple of upcoming shows, which we'll be using to launch Stefano on to the world. We've written a couple of bangin' new tunes, too, which we'll be playing at Frankie's on 29 July and also The Townie on 12 August. More details on those shows are on the Shows page.
Needless to say, we're all very excited about what Stefano has brought to Cigars. He's a seriously killer player, and with Figgy alongside, our guitar sounds are even more massive, and will really light up your insides like nothing else we've ever produced before.
So make sure you're around for our Sydney shows. We'll have a lot more to report soon. Sorry we've been away for so long, but rest assured, we're well and truly back.
