SUCH HOT BLOOD U.K./European Release, plus VINYL…

We’re extremely excited to announce both the U.K./European release of Such Hot Blood, and the limited-release vinyl edition of our third studio album—both of which include two bonus tracks: “Dublin” and “The Way Home,” not included on the original release.


We also want to thank you for waiting. When we first came to the U.K., we had a self-released, self-produced record. After three years on a label, it was clear they didn’t have our best interests in mind. We felt the major label system in the U.K. was outdated and archaic, and we bought our rights back from Mercury so that we could release our new album independently. The resulting legal hassle stalled the record release, but now, we’re overjoyed to be releasing our new album in the U.K. and Europe at last..

Such Hot Blood (plus bonus tracks) will be released in mainland Europe onSeptember 13th, and in the U.K. on September 30th. You can pre-order now onAmazon here:
* Germany (for all other countries, check your local Amazon site)
* Available for pre-order on iTunes beginning August 2nd

Aaaand… for you record lovers, we’ve put together a very special limited-edition180-Gram Vinyl of Such Hot Blood (pictured above), which includes a bonus 7-inch (containing the additional tracks “Dublin” …

To help address this pressing situation, we’re extremely excited to announce NEW DATES this October in the UK, Germany,Holland, and Belgium. UK tickets go on sale this WEDNESDAY AT 9:00 A.M., with EU tickets to follow FRIDAY at 9:00 a.m. (Links below).
