Art Brut - New single, label and UK tour
They formed a band, released a string of brilliant singles and a brilliant debut album, then packed their worldly possessions into suitcases and set off to conquer the world. Now, Art Brut return with a new single, a UK headline tour and a freshly inked deal with Labels / Mute Records.
Eddie Argos (vocals), Ian Catskilkin (lead guitar), Freddy Feedback (bass), MIkey B (drums) and new guitarist Jasper Future will release their Dan Swift-produced new single ‘Nag Nag Nag Nag’ (that’s one more Nag than Cabaret Voltaire) on 13th November in the UK through Mute Records. It’s brilliantly classic Art Brut, a reminder of why we all fell in love with them in the first place, and a pointer of where the band will be heading when they go to record their second album, which is due for release in 2007. The single, released on CD and 7” will also feature brand new b-side ‘I Found This Song In The Road’.
The new material follows the huge international acclaim the band have received for their debut album ‘Bang Bang Rock And Roll’. The album was voted at number 3 best album of the year in Pitchfork’s hugely influential end of year poll while the band graced the cover of Rolling Stone, appeared on the Jimmy Kimmell show and featured in Spin magazine’s Top 25 Greatest Live Acts. Following festival appearances across the globe (including Coachella, Benicassim and Pitchfork), the band also recently completed a sold out US tour which saw them play two consecutive sold out shows at New York’s Bowery Ballroom.
Currently continuing their assault on America with a no-corner-unvisited 25 date co-headline tour with New York’s favourite hipsters, We Are Scientists, Art Brut are pleased to announce a November UK headline tour – their first since December 2005. The tour will include their biggest London headline show to date at the Mean Fiddler on 10th November.
