Smalltown America Recordings in the UK have issued an update regarding the debut album from LaFaro as well as tour news for And So I Watch You From Afar [featured on the GLORIOUS NOISE compilation available for FREE DOWNLOAD HERE]...
[ 1 ] LAFARO DEBUT ALBUM / DATES
Lookie, a new release! LaFaro's self-titled debut album is ten tracks of high-octane punk rock freight train action, and will hit shops on May 10th 2010.
As a nice little preview, here's a free download of album track 'Atlantic' right now if you click HERE. This is limited to one hundred downloads, so move quickly! Like what you hear? Great - you can now pre-order for the record over at the STA store HERE.
As always, all pre-orders will receive a bonus CDR featuring unreleased and exclusive content, and you'll also receive the album w/b 26th April 2010 - that's two weeks early!
The band have just wrapped up their own UK tour, but we're delighted to announce that they'll be out on the road in April supporting And So I Watch You From Afar on an STA double-header tour. Woohoo! Scroll down to the next item for the dates...
[ 2 ] ASIWYFA - LETTERS EP, UK/EURO DATES
The wait is over - The Letters EP is out now. It contains four brand new tracks, and represents the first new material from the band since last year's debut album. The CD can be purchased directly from STA HERE!! as well as all good shops (if you're going to head elsewhere, we recommend Norman Records). The digital version can be had from iTunes, 7digital and other nice people. Finally, you can also stream the EP via Spotify right now. Hooray!
Also ALSO ALSO - the band are playing a totally free instore THIS TUESDAY at Tower Records in Dublin. As in, Tuesday March 2nd. As in, TOMORROW. It kicks off at 7pm but you're advised to get there early as space is expected to be limited for this one.
Of course, the band are touring around this release. They head off to North America in March to play shows in New York, Toronto and the week-long insanity that is SXSW, and after that its back to familiar mclimes with some UK and European dates.
