Building on the buzz surrounding their current single Sunglasses, Black Country, New Road have announced further live dates for September, October, and November across Europe and the UK.
Frontman/singer/guitarist Isaac Wood says the song, mixed by Dan Carey, “describes a series of events, loosely connected, all yet to happen.
“The song was intended to be highly inspirational. The lyrics are sometimes concerned with symbols of wealth or affluence but they are not written from a critical or even external position.”
Sunglasses was released digitally on 26th July and physically on 6th September.
The initial 500-unit press of the 7” – each copy a unique product, with different Polaroid images on each cover taken by the band – sold out shortly after the initial announcement. So, the Thurston Moore-affiliated Blank Editions have announced a second pressing of the record.
Limited to 250 copies, each record is hand assembled and features the now “classic” trumpet image affixed to the front of the sleeve. It will also include a new collectors insert which is hand numbered.
The seven-piece band’s debut single Athens, France sold out of its pressing in a matter of days, they were featured in The Guardian’s tips for 2019, and have performed in session for 6 Music alongside other early accolades.
They’ve also played alongside the likes of Fat White Family and Black Midi.
Now’s your chance to see the collective of Wood, May Kershaw (keys), Charlie Wayne (drums), Luke Mark (guitar), Tyler Hyde (bass), Lewis Evans (sax), and Georgia Ellery (violin) for yourself as they hit the road once more.
