All Quiet For Now

Not a great deal going on. Though as expected, the persistent rumours of the band splitting up has been laughed off this week by the band. So we can put that one to bed.

The band return to the live stage next weekend at Bingley, for the start of a fairly busy month playing the end of summer festival circut.

Fans of Elbow may be interested to learn that they have been doing some work this summer in doves Chesire barn.

Also with a connection to doves, Cherry Ghost are playing some live shows again in September. I can’t wait for the follow up to the stunning Thirst For Romance. I will probably flag up news of the album release as it becomes available. If you haven’t checked them out, visit the Cherry Ghost myspace here.

Cois Fharraige festival

Doves have been confirmed to play the Cois Fharraige festival located in Kilkee, Co. Clare on the West Coast of Ireland. The festival takes place over the weekend of September 11-12-13th.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday.
