THE DANSE SOCIETY OFFICIAL STATEMENT:
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 - Despite having SOLD OUT our first Bristol gig on the 25th January, 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
4th November 2014: THE DANSE SOCIETY are NOT performing in 2014 but are taking on bookings for the new year, so please feel free to join us on Facebook and Twitter and get in touch with your local festivals and venues and put them in touch with our new management at email@example.com, to see them perform near you.

The Danse Society are very proud to announce our new AA single coming out "If I were Jesus" and "Sound of Silence" (the darkest
version of Paul Simon's masterpiece).
the good news is that it will come in PURPLE VINYL and it is available to pre-order NOW. The delivery is estimated sometime in February and if we're lucky, by the end of January 2015.
Please note that it's only limited to 300 copies so we strongly suggest you to order it now in our SHOP .
Every pre-order placed for the vinyl will receive instant free digital download of both the tracks (mp3 or WAV, your choice).
The digidal download will be available from the 5th December 2015 on Itunes, Amazon etc.
When Steve retired we welcomed female vocalist Maethelyiah because she's our perfect front woman and any other male singer compared to Steve would have just looked and sounded wrong.
