The gig is in support of the band’s “merch mummy” and singer Nick Barrett’s better half Rachel Wilce, who is undertaking an epic charity walk across Costa Rica, from the Caribbean to the Pacific coast in early 2017 to help raise my for the cancer charity. “It’ a big old walk,” Rachel told us. “And I want to raise a heap of dosh for Macmillan as they are such lovely people and mountains, volcanoes, scary critters and altitude sickness seems like an exciting and daunting way to do it.
