White Belt Yellow Tag tour diary!

So fresh off tour supporting with The Automatic, White Belt Yellow Tag released their long anticipated debut album ‘Methods’ last week. Continuing with their flare for video blogs and diaries, the band wanted to share a moment with you from their recent tour dates in Ireland:

White Belt Yellow Tag have announced details of the release of debut album, Methods, out on Monday April 5th 2010 through Distiller Records. Self-produced and mixed by Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur), the 12-track album was recorded in South Yorkshire in the summer of 2009.

The album will be preceded by a single ‘Always & Echoes’, which is set for release on March 29th. “It’s what would happen if you force fed a fat kid loads of bags of skittles then punched him really hard in the stomach…” eloquently puts WBYT’s Justin Lockey, describing the kaleidoscopic video that accompanies the track. And when asked to explain the single itself? “It’s about just having the balls to do what you want to do, rather than changing your sensibilities to fit the Pol Pot / Mussolini/ Stalinesque fas(cist)hion periodicals.”

The single also features the tracks ‘Postcards’, ‘You Have No Friends’ and ‘We All Have Sound (Rhysmix Vs Wahs mix)’.

Having already bagged some impressive radio and press support (record of the week slots on 6 music, Zane Lowe support) off the back of 3 EPs in the second half of 2009, their debut album is the perfect snap-shot of White Belt Yellow Tag. Wide-screen and far-reaching, the 12 tracks span a sound ranging from the slow grind of Slint to the euphoria of Doves to the icy grandeur of prime-time Bunnymen.

The three-piece, made up of Justin Lockey (ex-Yourcodenameis:Milo, Craig Pilbin & Tom Bellamy (ex-The Cooper Temple Clause, also of The Losers) came together at the start of 2009 when Lockey and Pilbin met in a studio in Newcastle. The last 12-months have seen the band tour extensively (most recently in support of The Airborne Toxic Event) and develop a fearsome live reputation.
