So we're back in business on the live gigs front! The band would like to thank everyone who came to see them play at their first gigs since the end of 2019.


Barnard Castle TCR Hub with The Hot Rods was a great way to get back into playing live with a fantastic crowd urging the band on their way. A great venue run by great people. An inaugural set for the Stone Valley Festival followed, a great experience and an excellent festival. Hopefully, there'll be more Stone Valley festival appearances in the future. Most recently, the group played HRH Punk Festival at Sheffield 02 Academy last Sunday and were blown away by the reaction.


Fantastic nights all. It's great to be back.


MARCH 2021

The creative soup is bubbling away nicely in the Department S camp while the country, nay world, holds its breath in anticipation of a kind of return to normal and some relaxation of lockdown.


Although it looks like our industry continues to be (reasonably understandably) at the back of the queue in terms of live shows, the band have been busy in the studio working on the new album which inches ever-closer to completion. On top of that, preparations are underway for an imminent VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT which we are really excited about. Make sure you subscribe to the Lost Followers mailing list to be the first to hear!


2020 has obviously not turned out as anybody planned  but spirits remain high here at Dep S HQ. Much of this is due to the fact that despite to the enforced downtime the band have been able to continue work on the forthcoming, as yet untitled, studio album- the band's first since the critically acclaimed "When All Is Said and All Is Done" from 2016.

Song ideas are flying about over the usual electronic channels, and the band have even been able to get back into the studio and continue work (although, due to current restrictions, not all at the same time!) It's been a strange way of working but it IS working. 

The band want to send a big shout out to all our loyal fans and your families. This is a difficult time for us all and we hope you are all well and staying safe. We look forward to seeing you all at a gig soon!

Take care folks.
