#dovesleak Contest Winners

Back in August we invited all of you to interpret a then unreleased track, Forest House, using only ‘leaked’ sheet music. Thanks to all of you who took part in the contest. We have enjoyed listening to all of the interpretations.

The choice as to who should win the contest became difficult owing to the quality of the responses. The outcome is a three-way split, with a fans choice (Nathan Sinclair) and us finding ourselves with two, ‘band choice’ versions by Sean Bechhofer and Mark Lang. Listen to the three versions above.

Black Vinyl Reissues

We’re excited to announce the release of our first three albums on 180g black vinyl!

Lost Souls, The Last Broadcast and Some Cities will be released on November 27th (January 15th USA), all with original artwork, sleeve notes and a download code.

You can pre-order yours here: https://Doves.lnk.to/VinylReissues

The Universal Want Lyrics Booklet

As you will likely know the booklet that came with The Universal Want vinyl & CD was sadly lacking in lyrics much to the disappointment of many. Huge thanks to our good friend and Doves forum regular Madeleine Kuhn aka BlackEyedAngel, she has put together a lyrics booklet so that we don’t have to pull up the lyrics websites every time we want to sing along to the tracks!

The booklet comes in full colour form or black & white if you prefer. There’s also a seperate A4 lyrics sheet and an instruction booklet that will help you with how to put the booklet together.

Again all credit to Madeleine Kuhn for putting this fantastic booklet together and allowing DMB to host the booklet for us all to enjoy!


At long last! We’re thrilled to finally be able to offer official Doves merch for sale online. T-Shirts, slipmats, lapel badges and more are now available to order from our official merch store.

Andy’s Top 10 Formative Albums

Louder Than War asked Andy to list his top 10 formative albums. Not too many surprises. But Andy did provide some interesting tidbits including this:

Talk Talk: Spirit of Eden

“A very formative record in terms of us finding our direction with Doves. We started listening to this record in our Sub Sub days (we sampled it on Spaceface too) on the come down after being out clubbing. It’s such a real, spiritual record and still sounds like nothing else.”
