Hopefully you’re all enjoying your weekend and soaking up any bit of sunshine you can find! I saw a butterfly and a bee yesterday...in march...in Scotland!!! The world is truly upside down.
Anyway as there’s been a sudden synchronized burst of activity from our ‘Found of Confusion’ artists, here’s a quick news update for any interested parties.
Our first founders POLARSETS have only gone and got themselves hooked up with the ever fashionable Kitsune label! New track ‘Sunshine Eyes’ (below) will be released on the 18th of April and the band will then take to the road for a northern tour:
23rd April STOCKTON, KU - tbc
24th April DARLINGTON, Inside Out - tbc
27th April EDINBURGH, Electric Circus - tbc
28th April GLASGOW, King Tuts - 8:30pm £5
29th April ABERDEEN, Cafe Drummonds - £5
30th April LEEDS, Live At Leeds - tbc
1st May YORK, The Duchess - 4pm - £4

It’s unlikely you’ll get the chance to see the band in venues of this size for much longer and at those prices it’s got to be worth your time so get along there

WASHINGTON IRVING are also being good enough to treat us to new material. ‘Abbey Gallop’ comes out on April 25th and it too coincides with a tour that makes its way round Scotland before heading south to Newcastle, Manchester, Cardiff and London – all dates are listed at the band’s MySpace page

The third new single on offer comes from SECRET RIVALS and it’s a cracker. ‘Tonight Matthew’ is out on the 4th of April via Kittiwake records and could prove to be a big breakthrough for the band. Here it is:

Our final update is the news that LASZLO, fresh from the release of 'Satori', has finished work on his album and has it provisionally pencilled in for a release around May time. I’m excited about this record but you can make your own minds up by listening to this medley previewing all the tracks:

So there you have it, there's lots happening for our FOC bands, maybe this blog is a lucky charm ;-)
Stay awake for the next bunch of 'Founders' which are coming your way in around a week but in the meantime enjoy the tunes and be good!
