Looking forward to the Brighton date, gutted that Allo Darlin' don't seem to be playing it though *sadface*

Not seen Foxes! before though. Should be corking. There's not enough indiepop in Brighton.

Foxes! are a bit less indiepop and a bit more 6music, i think, but they've got some really good songs. Played here with The Hot Toddies and i enjoyed them.

Was just listening to a live recording of All I Wanna Do from the Nottingham Indiepop Alldayer there. The violinist played a bit of Riding Hi by Helen Love at the end! Awesome!

Yup ! Of course people who has been following them for some time currently get half of the songs, but I'm sure that the new ones are great.

aww you beat me to it! the CDs are arriving today in time. Vinyl got a bit delayed but i think we'll have that by the Birmingham show, hopefully before then. It's red! yey.

there's 7 new tracks, 6 oldies.. had to make a balance between new material for old fans + not letting any new fans miss out on old songs.. here's the tracklisting:

1. Let It Slip
2. Is He Really Coming Home?
3. Valentine
4. I Want You Back
5. Is It True?
6. I Love Everything
7. Can't Understand
8. The One Who Left Me
9. Hoping and Praying
10. Summer's Here
11. Shoulder
12. All I Wanna Do
13. I Don't Believe in Love

Is He Really Coming Home? will have a video up soon, it's like a promo video for the album, then Can't Understand will be released as a proper single with a video shortly after.

So the album will be available on CD/download/limited edition red vinyl from:
- March on our UK tour
- April from www.elefant.com / Spain / Korea / Mexico / Canada / USA
- May - UK / everywhere else

Heeey Liz, didn't notice you were there. Congrats for the "And suddenly" cover. I love Left Banke but you made it sound better than the original :)
