You can’t beat titling your first post of the week like a spam email subject, promising scantily clad European ladies, can you? I’m not talking about that kind of French Wives though, and there’s no premium rate phone lines involved.
French Wives are, for those that haven’t been paying attention, a band from round these parts. Not French, not wives, but one of my favourites anyway.
Recently the band have been working away on their debut album in the studio with producer Tony Doogan, and now they are ready to share the first fruits of those sessions.
They’ll be releasing a single, Numbers, on October 24th, with that debut album to follow early next year.
You can have a wee listen to Numbers below. It is hardly a secret that I’m very fond of the band, so it will come as no surprise that I really like the song. Maybe they’ll finally manage to get people to stop calling them folky soon too, since they quite blatantly aren’t.
To celebrate the release of Numbers French Wives are going off on a wee tour later this month. You can find them at these places on these dates:
Aberdeen, Drummond’s Cafe – 19/10/11
Glasgow, Mono (Single Launch) – 20/10/11
Edinburgh, The Third Door – 22/10/11
Newcastle, The Tyne Bar – 23/10/11
London, Bull and Gate – 24/10/11
Suport for the Glasgow gig comes from Blochestra and Endor, and tickets are available now here.
They’ve also gone and got themselves a shiny new website, which you can find at http://frenchwives.co.uk/. Pop over there for more music, videos, and other fun things.
