In a message on the official website, Turin Brakes have thanked fans for the support of the new album, We Were Here, which was released in Europe last week and is now also available in the United States.
We Were Here had an extremely successful release week (30 September). Through social media and word of mouth alone, the album’s official UK chart position was 46, but it currently holds position 10 in the the Independent Albums chart. The album will have its official North American release tomorrow, October 8, on Red River Entertainment (order at Amazon.com). Thanks to all our incredible fans for the support and spreading the word. Our UK tour starts in Exeter on 27 October. There are still tickets available for all the gigs, but with all the hype, they’re selling fast, so get yours now (dates and ticket links in the live section). Stay tuned right here (or follow us on twitter @turinbrakes) for announcements of any additional live appearances, and thanks to everyone who came out to support us at our in-stores last week.
