Cambridge Soundcheck

Nipa reports on Doves board that the band have been soundchecking Compulsion. That’s the one I was hoping to hear live! :)


If you are in the US. Kingdom Of Rust was delivered to the radio stations last Thursday. I’ve heard several album tracks over the radio this weekend. My local NPR station has played all of the album over the course of the past couple days. So get requesting!

The Cedar Room


The Astralwerks press release has the Chicago show taking place at the Vic theatre. Not the Riv as Ticketmaster had listed. The TM Chicago listing has now gone. If the label are saying its the Vic, then it must be. Good news I say, I love the Vic.

doves are appearing on the Radcliffe & Maconie BBC Radio 2 show. I will upload the audio from the interview/live session. However I will not be uploading any live tracks from the new album. If they do any of the old stuff I will upload that. I will upload the new stuff once the album is out there.

doves are also down to play 6 music’s the hub, March 27th.


Ticketmaster have the New York City show listed. Tickets . Pre-sale next Wednesday 10am. Password: Jetstream

Detroit ticket info: $19.50/$20 ALL AGES SHOW.

Doves have been confirmed to play the Irish Oxegen festival. Same weekend as T in the Park, where I also expect doves will perform. Just awaiting confirmation.

Thanks for all the feedback so far. Its been a great start, its only going to get busier as the album release draws nearer. Also the small matter of the tour starting next week.

Here’s a wee gem from the Sub Sub days. Released back in 1995 on the ‘From Manchester With’ compilation.
