Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

Alice will be introducing a free showing of 'Waynes World' in Millennium Park, Chicago next Tuesday (Sept. 5th) at 6.30PM. The film is being shown as part of a summer season of films being shown in the park.

The new US tour with Deep Purple has begun and there has been a bit of press to cover:
KKLZ have a few words with Alice and Deep Purple's Roger Glover about the current co-headline US tour. The OC Register has a review of the LA show (although you wonder if they actually watched the show). The Dallas Observer has a short Alice interview with a very deceiving headline. Houston Press has a longer interview, and finally Ultimate Classic Rock have video and setlists from the Las Vegas show.

Alice turned up on the BBC World Service 'Top Of The Pops' which you can hear here about 7 minutes into the show. Alice will be back on Radio 2 on August 28th for an hour long special with Johnnie Walker. The show airs at 8pm UK time.

EarMusic have been pushing 'Paranormal' with a series of videos featuring Alice talking about each track on the new album. So far they have posted 'Paranormal', 'Dead Flies', 'Fireball', 'Fallen In Love', and 'Dynamite Road' with the rest of the tracks presumably following over the next few days. They have also posted the second part of their video interview with Alice about the album. 'Paranormal' appears to be selling well in many territories and things are looking good for a high chart entry at the end of the week in both the US and UK (where it is currently #3 in the midweek chart)!

Alice is confirmed as appearing on this Sunday's 'Johnnie Walker Show' on Radio 2. The show airs at 3pm.

A few more short soundbites have shown up in the Montrose Daily Press, NME, and Hot Press,
Alice is also on the cover of Mixdown magazine, which you can see here. They also have a short interview with Nita.
