Some Frequently asked questions:


ORDERS AND WAITING TIMES


Unless differently specified, despite we do our best to ship all orders within a couple of working days, some waiting times can take up to two weeks. We process all payments via Paypal, which means that your order is processed and secure. In the eventuality you haven't received your order within two weeks, or if you need any kind of assistance, please drop us a message to thedansesociety(at)gmail.com quoting your order number, and we will deal with your request immediately.



WHAT HAPPENED TO STEVE RAWLINGS, YOUR PREVIOUS SINGER?


We have lost any contact with him since 2010, when after he initially agreed to reform and recorded a track at the time called "Towers" then changed into "Change of skin". We believe he lives in the US but have no idea of what he is doing. As far as we know he has sadly retired from the music scene. We hope he is ok.



LEGAL STUFF - SCAM ALERT


If you bump into any other band pretending to be The Danse Society, we are sorry you have been scammed.

After our ex drummer left the band willingly and on his own, in January 2014 he started (and lost) a court case by registering an illegitimate Trademark to expropriate us of our name by inventing stories of band splits he was unable to prove in court and addressing racist, bullying and image shaming remarks to our singer, along with inciting trolls to engage into harassment and hatred campaigns.



So if you were told there was another band with the same name, we are sorry but as you can see it was undoubtedly a FRAUD. Ex band members count only Steve Rawlings, David Whitaker, Lyndon Scarfe, Tim Wright, Martin Roberts and Paul Gilmartin.  Any other names claiming to be part of the band whether currently or in the past are sadly deluded. Any residual attempt to discredit our band remains a sad pathetic desperate lack of decency we don't want to deal any more. Should you spot any residual of such fraud please report it directly to the host and to us.


We will always support equality.
