Irish post-punk outfit Girl Band just finished recording their debut in April, fresh off their U.S. tour — seven tracks were laid down in less than two days.
The band has wasted no time: “Holding Hands With Jamie” will be out in September.
Girl Band recently made waves with their creepy video and cover of Blawan’s “Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage,” and the band’s following has quickly grown.
The band’s album teaser is a pretty good indicator of the intensity they can reach and what we can expect from the new album.
Girl Band’s debut is out Sept. 25 on Rough Trade– they set out on another U.S. tour in November and December.
The group put out a message on their website yesterday:
We’re very excited to announce details of our debut album – “Holding Hands with Jamie”
The album was recorded in Dublin in Bowlane Studios and features 9 tracks -all previously unrecorded. We had a lot of fun doing this and can’t wait to share it with everyone.
It will be released on the 25th Sept through Rough Trade Records. There will be a ltd first edition pressing on yellow vinyl available only in Indie record stores and the Rough Trade Webstore. the first 250 online pre-orders will receive a ltd edition hand stamped photobook of us recording the record.
Also very happy to announce a number of new dates in France, Belfast and our first trip to Russia.
