Slough's Bigged-Up Brother Announces Debut Single and European Tour DatesFormer featured band Brother has announced that its debut single "Darling Buds of May" is due for official release on February 28th next year.

Brother announced the news in an email from Lee (Leonard Newell) to fans signed up to the band's "mailing list conga."

"We’ve re-recorded this with our favorite producer Stephen Street," Newell explained. "We’re just looking at designs for a limited edition vinyl. Keep your eyes peeled for that. You can pre-order it at Rough Trade now." Stephen Street is best known for his work with The Smiths and Blur.

Newell also wrote about the band's eagerly anticipated debut album. "We've just finished pre production for our album with our good friend Cam Blackwood which has been nothing short of licious," Newell revealed. "We're recording the real thing in January with Stephen and you will hear it shortly after. It's going to be an outrage."

A new video has been posted on the band's website, featuring a live performance at the Met Bar in London. The video can be viewed here . "Check us out at the Met Bar in London in November. It was £10 a pint. Horren," Newell commented.

Newell also included a link to another video, which he titled "Band on the Run." The video can be viewed here .

"Have a look at this video NSFW [not suitable for work]," Newell cautioned.

"We did this gig a while ago where the promoter said we had to bring a certain number of people or pay-to-play," Newell disclosed. "We didn’t bring enough people or pay-to-play. The promoter wasn’t best pleased. He chased me down the road by the Fighting Cocks in Kingston."

Brother's first official tour starts tomorrow. "Our first tour starts tomorrow in Brighton," Newell confirmed. "There are still a few tickets left for the shows. See you there for a beverage."

The Rough Trade website describes Brother as "hailing from slough, the arsehole of england." Rough Trade also writes that the band is "probably the best thing to come out of slough since ricky gervais' ridiculous red-nose day dance," which is hard to argue against.

The Killers' Brandon Flowers is set to release his debut solo album Flamingo in the UK on Monday, September 6th, and in the US on September 14th. The album has already been preceded by Flowers’ first self-penned solo single "Crossfire" which is currently #6 on the US Alternative Songs' Chart and reached #8 in its first week on the UK Singles Chart, where it features on both the A playlist for BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2.

On their website, Spin magazine showcases exclusive 45-second preview clips of all 10 album tracks (click here), together with an interview with Brandon Flowers published earlier last month.

The theme of Flamingo is inspired by Flowers’ hometown, Las Vegas, known as "Sin City". He named the album after Flamingo Road, in the heart of Vegas, where he had his first job and met his wife, Tana. Sam’s Town, the casino which inspired the title of The Killers’ 2006 album release, is also situated on Flamingo Road.

The songs on Flowers’ debut solo album were originally penned for his band, The Killers, “on a cheap Yamaha keyboard on the bus” during their Day and Age tour. Within the album there are other references to Flowers’ experiences in Las Vegas. He says the opening track, “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas”, is “an anthem to the iconic sign” that welcomes visitors to the city.
