Former 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.
