RecordRewindPlay interview: #TB7 features ‘straight for the jugular’ songs, 2016 release likely

In an exclusive interview with Nicola Tyzack of Record Rewind Play, Olly Knights has dished some previously unreleased details about the next Turin Brakes album. The interview is an excerpt from a larger interview with Olly on the new album, but the real juicy details are apparently held back for now, until the release has been announced. Apparently the band did more pre-recording work than ever before. Other topics include the return to Rockfield studios (the first time they’ve recorded two albums in a row in the same studio with the same co-producer), his hopes for the album and what the new material is like:

I’d say it’s more of a pastures new type of record, but with all the experience of what happens when we leave our comfort zone thrown in.  It’s unmistakably TB, but with some new twists and turns both sonically but also deep down in the routes of the songwriting.

Go and read the whole interview here. The intro to the interview seems to confirm the album is likely to be released in 2016 though. So yea. Counting down. COUNTING DOWN…

Olly’s things featured on ’12 Items Or Less’

Olly has done a little post for ’12 Items Or Less’, a blog that explores how creative professionals work and the tools they use to expand productivity. They do this by sharing 12 (or less) items that help them be creative. Olly’s entry is over here.

And no. I can’t read those lyrics either. :(

#10YearsJackInABox [2]: The Ether’s On-Air Podcast

This weekend, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the ‘JackInABox’, the third Turin Brakes album. In many ways it’s an important album, because in its own way, it set the stage for everything that came next. It’s bold, sunny, self-produced and carefully crafted. And whether this is your favourite Turin Brakes album of them all, or whether you haven’t listened to this in ages, it is worthy of your attention 10 years after its release. In three posts (album three, after all) we’ll convince you of this. The first post contains a very nice blog written by Nicola Tyzack and is also being published on Record Rewind Play. Part 2 is a special edition of The Ether’s On-Air Podcast full of rarities and unreleased music from this era. Part 3 will be all other fan contributions and some additional comments by myself. So stay tuned this weekend. It’s gonna be good.

Celebrate #10yearsJackInABox – contribute now!

30 May 2015 is the 10th anniversary of JackInABox, the third Turin Brakes album. So it’s time to give it some LOVE. On Twitter, Nicola (Call_Me_Cynical) came up with the great idea that everybody picks a track to write about. So here’s how it’s gonna work.

  1. Pick one or more tracks from the album JackInABox 
  2. Write/record something about it (what it means to you or a story related to it or just a comment about it). It can be 1 paragraph or a whole blog. It can be a video or a photo or an audio recording. Or a combination of all those things.
  3. Send it to Ether Site via Twitter, Facebook or E-Mail (ethersite@gmail.com)
  4. From Saturday 30 May 2015 your contributions will be featured here on Ether Site. Depending on the number of contributions (and the length and format) we’ll do individual song posts with all the contributions on or just a (couple of) huge round-up post(s) to celebrate the album.
  5. You can enter as many times as you like for as many songs as you like. Please state the name under which your contribution can be published here on the site and add your location for good measure.
  6. Go wild!

Sounds fun eh! Let’s go for it. :) Send your things now!

Turin Brakes headline Lyme Folk Festival in August 2015

Turin Brakes have just announced their first festival appearance of 2015 at Lyme Folk. This may very well be one of the few dates they play before the release of the 7th album… As one Julie Sheppard comments to the Dorset Echo it is the second time Turin Brakes play the festival in Lyme Regis:

“We’re delighted that Turin Brakes have agreed to be the opening act this year. They were firm favourites with the audience when they last played here and we’re expecting heavy demand for tickets when they go on sale.”

The festival takes place at the Marine Theatre. TB play on 21 August. At this moment in time, tickets have yet to go on sale. No other artists have yet been announced. We’ll keep you posted. For now take a look at this sunny picture of the band and pretend it is Summer already:
