We have exciting news. Our music will be appearing again in the BBC’s Waterloo Road this week. On Wednesday 21st September at 7:30pm on BBC1, we will have 2 songs featured in episode 12 of series 7. It’s like de ja vu all over again…
Back in May it was ‘DIY’, from our Vast Atlantic EP, that was used to end episode 2 of series 7. The positive response to the show surprised us all. The web seemed to come alive with questions, comments and blogs from people trying to establish who the music was by. We made a fair few new friends then, and we’re hoping to make a few more this time round too.
Wednesday’s episode of Waterloo Road will feature both ‘Cry for the City’ and ‘Constitution Failed’; songs you may have heard us play at live shows but which haven’t previously been released. However, you can now download ‘Constitution Failed’ from our website.
In preparation for the song appearing in Waterloo Road, Media Moose have made a video for ‘Constitution Failed’. We’re sure you’ll agree that with little time and an even littler budget, they have done an amazing job.
The above video is on Vimeo, but ‘Constitution Failed’ is on Youtube too if you would prefer to watch, and/or share, it there.
This second appearance in Waterloo Road has really come about thanks to the excellent work of Waterloo Road director, Andrew Gunn, who saw us play at the Rough Beats Festival in 2010. His championing of the band, including persuading suited & booted BBC execs that it was a good idea, has been incredible. So a big THANK YOU goes out to him.
Our forthcoming album – Molehills out of Mountains
Both ‘Constitution Failed’ and ‘Cry For The City’ will be on our forthcoming album, Molehills out of Mountains. The album is set to be released before the end of 2011 and we will have more news about that soon.We’re hoping to make a music video for every song on the forthcoming album. If you have a killer idea or think you might be able to help, do get in touch.
Finally… a recommendation
During the summer, a couple of us went to the Deershed Festival where we saw some marvellous music. Sam Kipling was particularly impressed by Matthew And The Atlas. You should give them a listen. There’s one particulary beautiful song of theirs called ‘What Was Lost’.
More details will follow about our album launch but for now, make a brew, make yourself comfortable and enjoy Waterloo Road on Wednesday 21st September at 7:30pm on BBC1…
