Manchester's Nine Black Alps are to return in 2012 with an October UK tour and their fourth studio album Sirens set for release on 7th October (digitally) and 8th October (LP/CD) through Brew with the single for 'My One and Only' preceding the album on 23rd September. Sirens is the sound of a band that has grown and matured but still contains all the hallmarks of a classic Nine Black Alps record which saw the likes of the NME hail their music as, "a fantasy fairyland of college rock and surf-pop" while Kerrang nominated them for the Best New band award in 2005.
A free download of album track "Don't Forget to Breath" is available for free HERE. To coincide with the release of the album, Nine Black Alps will embark on their first UK tour in almost 3 years.
Album & T-Shirt combos are also available to pre-order HERE, the first 200 pre-orders come signed by the band.
