White Belt Yellow Tag video and gigs!

White Belt Yellow Tag have finally unveiled details of their new album, along with a tour and a very cool colourful new video. The album, ‘Methods’, is out on Monday April 5th 2010 through Distiller Records and will be preceded by a single ‘Always & Echoes’, which is set for release on March 29th.

The video for the single can be watched below. “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 (ex-Yourcodenameis:milo). 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.”


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. 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 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.
