White Belt Yellow Tag’s Craig Pilbin in A&E‏

With the imminent release of White Belt Yellow Tag’s new single ‘Always & Echoes’ (Distiller Records, March 29th), we thought we’d share a moment from vocalist Craig Pilbin’s recent trip to Accident & Emergency.

Craig had a night off from the band’s recent tour and somehow managed to have a ceiling fall on his head. In A&E, feeling slightly groggy and concussed, he relays his story to the production team from BBC3’s programme ‘Bizarre ER’ whilst awaiting news as to whether or not the doctors will give him permission to do the last gig of the tour…

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.
