We are really, really excited to welcome Lee Jones and Iain Hunter as the new Danse Society engine room. Iain is one of the best drummers we have ever seen, and Lee is an amazingly powerful and creative bass player. We are really excited by this news and looking forward to next evolution of The Danse Society sound.




Firstly I would like to apologise on behalf of the band to all our fans and inform you that we have been forced to cancel the current tour. We apologise to all those who have bought tickets or were planning to come from far and wide to support us, to the promotors and venues and support bands who were joining us on the tour. Paul Gilmartin (Gigi) and Martin Roberts have taken a decision to no longer be involved with the band, which leaves Dave, Maeth and myself to pick up the pieces and decide where to go from here. Once we have had time to review our options I will make a further statement. The Danse Society have always been a team, members have come and gone; Dave Patrick, Paul Hampshire (Bee), Lyndon Scarfe, Steve Rawlings and Tim Wright and this has contributed to our unique and evolving sound and recordings. I am disappointed that Paul and Martin have left suddenly and with no notice, and at a most unfortunate time, but we respect and learn from our past, live and enjoy the present and look forward to an interesting and bright future. Peace and Love to you all - Paul Nash.


More updates on TWITTER and on this space.


GLORY OR GRACE TOUR - CANCELLED - The Danse Society regret to inform that the Glory or Grace 2014 Tour was suddenly cancelled due to Paul Gilmartin resigning from the band without notice due to personal reasons and having issues with consistency and unfortunately not showing much care about his band mates nor the band fans. We apologise to all the fans that bought our tickets, of course they will get full refund. The Tour will be reinstated as soon as the new lineup is confirmed and announced. Thank you
