The debut Black Rivers album is out this Monday, February 9th! If your in Manchester you can get it a day early at HMV Manchester (Arndale Centre) from 2pm where they will perform a few tracks and will sign copies of the album!

The Line of Best fit reviewed the album:

“Wind That Shakes The Barley” isn’t the all-out house of Sub Subs “Ain’t No Love (Ain’t No Use)” but nonetheless it’s a euphoric slab of psychedelia that wouldn’t be out of place at a rave. “Diamond Days” has the same touchpoints as “Words” from The Last Broadcast with a similarly lilting, repetitive guitar hook and gentle voice. It segues into “The Ship”, which starts as a sea shanty then thrillingly mutates into a Kraftwerk workout replete with effect laden vocals.
