- On May 28th 2006, the four members of Athlete gathered in the studio they’d just finished building, a short hop from their south east London homes. Three days earlier, the band’s ‘Wires’ single had been named Best Contemporary Song at the Ivor Novello awards. Now it was time for Athlete to make some new music. They picked up their instruments, took a collective deep breath and pressed the record button.
Nine months later, in February 2007, they pressed stop. The recording of their third album, ‘Beyond The Neighbourhood’, was complete. That night, the band went for a meal with some friends to celebrate. Afterwards, they piled back to the studio for more drinks and to listen through the new tracks in one go for the first time. “We all just sat there with these huge grins on our faces,” remembers frontman Joel Pott. "When they’d finished playing, we were like, ‘Yes!’."

So we did our first warm up gig last night, went pretty well although still getting a few loose ends tied up. We played at Leeds Irish Center which is the closest thingh to pheonix nights you will ever find. Also had the nicest hells angel fella welcoming people at the door. Strange combo of events but brilliant for it. Tried out some new songs and seemed to work well, also it was jonny's first gig with us and that was great, think he enjoyed as much as we did. Hurricane got played on the radio yesterday so hopefully a few people will start to get to know it a bit for some of the other gigs coming up. Anyway, now leaving home to head for brighton for another warm up gig so see you later.
