Turin Brakes announce only Scottish Summer appearance

Turin Brakes are heading to Ullapool for the final weekend of September. They once again play Loopallu alongside a selection of other musical acts. The band confirmed on Facebook this is the only Scottish date they’re playing this Summer, ahead of the new album that should be released early 2018. So it might be nice to get out there. Last time I visited Ullapool I lay on the beach there in my Ether Site t-shirt. It was many moons ago but it was sunny. So yea, there’s that.

Tickets are available here. This year marks the last time the Loopallu festival is being organized, so let’s hope our guys can give them a good farewell :).

Turin Brakes play new song ‘Tomorrow’ at oldies gig in 100 Club

Turin Brakes played an intimate show in London last night, celebrating old classics from their first four albums. The song is called Tomorrow and was featured in the encore of the set. The rest of the set was made up of songs from when we are all much younger. Besides fan favourites like Fishing for a Dream, Underdog (Save Me) and Painkiller, the band dug deep to find to play songs that haven’t been played in years. Amongst them were set opener Blue Hour and Above The Clouds from Ether Song, and Jackinabox, The Optimist and Ether Song. Also, Gale took a turn singing on Full of Stars.

Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of @cwblueroom on Twitter. Thanks for sharing! Also some pics below

Universal Music cancels Source Years vinyl box set

Universal Music have cancelled the upcoming vinyl box set featuring the first four Turin Brakes albums. The reasons for these are unclear, however, according to sources close to the band, this was a decision not made by the band themselves. Turin Brakes are, however, still playing the ‘secret’ gig celebrating the music from this Turin Brakes era. This is very good news for people who already made travel arrangements.

Tickets for the gig, taking place at the iconic 100 Club in London on 29 April go on sale tomorrow 9 am and are very limited. Fans who purchased tickets with the box set will have to buy them again in a special presale which is live now.
