Talking about the album, lead singer Peter Liddle said: "We wanted to record the bulk of it to tape, to use analogue stuff in favour of computer wizardry where possible, but without it sounding like an old folk record. I think we tried to preserve the fragility and honesty of the more stripped down tracks, but still get the intensity of the live show across too - to marry those two aspects of our music without it sounding incongruous."

Dry The River have also announced their biggest London show to date at the Electric Ballroom on May 2nd. Tickets are priced at £10 each and are available from here.
