Delays gigs!

Delays release their fourth album ‘Star Tiger, Star Ariel’ on 21stJune 2010, through Lookout Mountain Records, preceded by the debut single ‘Unsung’ on 14th June.

British indie rock band Delays debut album ‘Faded Seaside Glamour’ was released on Rough Trade Records in 2004, and became one of the most critically acclaimed records of that year.

Determined to strip their sound back, the band found inspiration in their hometown of Southampton and it’s melancholic history. Written as a soundtrack to late night drives through the New Forest and sunrise at the docks, ‘Star Tiger Star Ariel’ truly reflects the bands depth, ambition and integrity.

Brothers Greg and Aaron Gilbert, alongside Colin Fox on bass guitar and Rowly on drums, recorded the album at Rockfield Studios in Monmouth (Queen, Stone Roses) with Duncan Lewis who produced their first hit album.

Greg says “The first album sounded like the sun, the second album like a club, ‘Everything’s The Rush’ was a festival, but this album sounds like roots beneath the city shaking the buildings at night. This record is about being lost, and the dream of being found. It is our most personal record, and, more than anything, is a soundscape for our home.”

The album track listing is as follows:
1. Find A Home (New Forest Shaker)
2. The Lost Estate
3. Shanghaied
4. Rhapsody
5. May 45
6. Hold Fire
7. Unsung
8. In Brilliant Sunshine
9. Moment Gone
10. Lakes Can Be Lethal
11. Star Tiger, Star Ariel
