Description

Manchester's finest make a welcome return with 'La Petite Mort', the first full length studio album in 6 years. Produced by Max Dingel (Killers. Muse, White Lies) and written as ever, by the band, with Tim Booth lyrics, this new disc ranks among their finest in their 30 year career. Highlights include the mighty first single 'Moving On', the anthemic 'Curse Curse' and 'Frozen Britain', which will be previewed from today online and on air. Max DIngel is the latest in a long line of first class producers the band have worked with including Brian Eno, Gil Norton and Youth. The band have just been announced as headliners for 'Summer in the City', Castlefield Bowl, Manchester July 11th and Camp Bestial, Dorset August 1st with more major festivals and a UK Arena tour to be announced shortly. 'La Petite Mort' was recorded in the wake of Tim Booth losing his mother and best friend in quick succession and understandably many of the songs deal with mortality, hence the album title. However, 'La Petite Mort', is an incredibly uplifting record.

Profile
Formed in Manchester in 1982 by Jim Glennie, Tim Booth, Larry Gott and Gavan Whelan. Signing, a year later, to Anthony H. Wilson's Factory label, before being snapped up by the Sire Records Company. Their folksy/indie sound found early cult status, before they became big chart toppers. Well almost, 'Sit Down' reached no. 2 in the UK singles charts, quickly followed by a no. 2 album, 'Seven'. The band split up in 2001, before re-forming some years later.
