Latest News : Wave Gotik Treffen
We have dusted our rock apparatus down, and we will be playing our first show in well over a year at Wave-Gotik-Treffen festival in Leipzig. Go easy on us.
This will be our third time at WGT. It is always a pleasure. We’re genuinely excited (and terrified) to be back. You’ll find us at the beautiful Kuppelhalle at 22.20 on Sunday May 15th. The creative juices have started to flow so be prepared for some new noise..
Latest News : A Divorce Before Marriage
Over the last three years we have been filmed in the studio, on tour, at work and at home. This invasion of privacy is part of a feature length film project undertaken by our longtime video collaborators Ben Lankester and Matthew Hopkins of The Progress Film Company. The film is entitled 'A Divorce Before Marriage' - head to the Kickstarter page for more information on the project and to watch the trailer.
After watching the trailer we are very pleased and relieved to see the work in progress. This is a real labour of love for Ben and Matt, and a leap of faith for us. We are determined to help them succeed in their Kickstarter campaign, and would really appreciate it if you could invest in some way.

Latest News : The Christmas Tree Ship EP vinyl pre-order
We are pleased to announce the re-release of our 2008 Christmas Tree Ship EP on heavy weight single sided vinyl. Our only instrumental release, it sold out of its initial 1000 CD units very quickly, and many of you have since called for it to be etched onto a wax disc. It has been remastered by Eric James at the Philosophers Barn, who was also responsible for the recent reworking of Progress Reform. We are limiting it to a maximum of 500 copies. It will only be available directly from us and we will be shipping in March.

Progress Reform vinyl reissue and Brudenell Show
I LIKE TRAINS (or should that be iLiKETRAiNS) are 10 years old. Having played their first show in February 2004, there are a number of plans afoot to mark this special occasion. Here are the first...
Fierce Panda are reissuing the seminal debut mini album Progress Reform on heavy weight vinyl on the 4th November. It has been remastered at Philosophers Barn and sounding better than ever. Limited to 500 copies we have 150 available to pre-order from the I LIKE RECORDS shop. We would anticipate that these won’t be around for very long.
To mark the release and coinciding nicely with the Brudenell Social Club’s centenary celebrations, iLiKETRAiNS will once again take to the stage at their spiritual home. December 12th is the date for your diary, and Progress Reform will be performed in full. We have 100 tickets at the 2004 friendly price of £4 available from our shop. Once these are gone, tickets will be a very reasonable £7.
