Got a little bit excited about some new tunes by The Charalatans and Treacherous Orchestra. They are really different bands but both are great.
The Charlatans have announced they will release their first album since the death of founder member and drummer Jon Brookes. They’ve had a series of drummers on Modern Nature including former members of New Order and the Verve. Talking in Tones is the first video to be taken from the album and So,oh will be the single released on December 1st. Modern Nature will follow on January 26th.
The band will also be touring and will play the Barrowlands on March 10.
Meanwhile there was also exciting news from the Treacherous Orchestra camp. Their new album Grind will be released on January 16th which is just in time for Celtic Connections. Grind will be available to pre order from iTunes on November 3rd. First tune to be streamed is Masters which is sounding as loud and adventurous as you expect from the Treacherous Orchestra. They will be touring in January taking in the Concert Hall as part of Celtic Connnections on 24th January.
