It is still a folk record, but it has a twist. Subjects tackled on the album range from Prince Harry joining the army to Fracking; from the Modern day Glastonbury &nbsp;and English music venues to American conspiracy theories and all the way through to swollen throats, love and things, lots and lots of Things.</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>There's no point in bullshitting, these are simple 3 chord folk songs about the life that he leads and the world as he sees it. Carried through by the heartwarming nature and infectious charisma Beans conveys in every song. You can't really dance to it but its music for people who do like to dance, especially to the beat of their own drum.<br /> <br /> You can pre-order the album here:&nbsp;<br /> <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/giving-everything/id724828222" target="_self">iTunes</a>&nbsp;/ <a href=" http://www.amazon.co.uk/Giving-Everything-Beans-Toast/dp/B00FZRZQ4I/ref=sr_1_3?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1382539506&sr=1-3&keywords=beans+on+toast" target="_self">Amazon</a>&nbsp;/ <a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/MusicDetails.aspx?rid=696&fid=12&brid=5" target="_self">Xtra Mile Recordings</a><br /> <br /> Here's a taster of the album - 'Post Bestival Festival Blues':&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/SW-lIcHAkNU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe><br /> <br /> </div> <div><br /> </div> <div>The album will be launched with a huge party at The Magic Garden Pub in Battersea, London as well as a whistle stop tour of UK venues.&nbsp;<br /> Then in Fe<span style="color: #ffffff;">bruary 2014 - Beans will join friend and musical peer Frank Turner on his huge UK Arena Tour.

A modern-day Blake” by Sunday Times and “One of the great underground artists of our time.” by Jon Snow - CHRIS T-T is truly one of the nation’s best songwriting talents.</div> <div>Following the release of his critically applauded ninth studio album ‘The Bear’ - which came out on 7th October 2013 – Chris is announcing the details of a headline tour that will start as soon as his support slot on the nationwide Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo tour finishes in late November. His dates will run right through until Christmas.

Recorded with his band The Hoodrats, together they have departed from the paired down introspection of 2010’s Love Is Not Rescue and instead created a full-on psych rock record with hints of Sebadoh, early Hold Steady, early Yo La Tengo, or Blur at their heavier moments and with a nod to grimy garage-y 60s like The Faces and Animals. Channelling these influences, Chris and his band taped the album live in a room and completed it in 3 or 4 takes just as those bands would have done back then. The result is a fascinating and excitingly fresh sounding record and some of his best work to date.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> The title track of the album was released on split 7” as part of the Xtra Mile Single Sessions: The Tenth Anniversary Edition.<br /> <br /> T<span style="font-size: 10pt;">here are beautiful lyric videos to every track of the album available to see here:</span></div><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLD6tefJ3Nst5FXhShl15XpUgLcWJxXgfA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe><br /> <br /> Since 1999 Chris T-T has released eight albums, including a trilogy about London: The 253 (2001), London Is Sinking (2003) and Capital (2008), as well as alt-folk protest classic 9 Red Songs (2005) and more recently the inward-looking Love Is Not Rescue (2010). <br /> <br /> Based in Brighton but restlessly mobile, he has written for The Morning Star, Louder Than War, Huffington Post, New Public Thinkers and others. Alongside writing and touring, Chris speaks regularly at conferences and runs seminars and workshops. <br /> <br /> * not that Jon Snow; that Jon Snow.

Crammed with his Americana storytelling across a pace and passion to match any punk outfit, it's as good an introduction to Franz Nicolay as you could get. He worked with producer oktopus, of the innovative New Jersey industrial/hip-hop group dälek, to move beyond the singer-songwriter sound world and create a dark, explosive, and cinematic opus of personal and political anger.</div> <div><span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"></span></div> <div>With the help of Guignol rhythm section John Bollinger (drums) and George Rush (bass, tuba) and guests including Ezra Kire (Leftover Crack, Morning Glory), Franz Nicolay has woven tales for everyone to hold onto.</div> <div><span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"></span></div> <div>He is over this side of the pond this November for a UK tour with The Cut Ups. The 'Bearing Torches' tour will see the Exeter band back Franz during his headline sets, and they'll also be main support each night, with Franz joining them on keyboards.&nbsp;</div> <div>Catch them at:</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>NOVEMBER</div> <div>13 The Exchange, Bristol</div> <div>14 The Cavern, Exeter&nbsp;</div> <div>15 Tiki Bar and Diner, Plymouth</div> <div>16 Wharf Chambers, Leeds</div> <div>17 Chameleon Arts Cafe, Nottingham</div> <div>18 Tiger Lounge, Manchester</div> <div>19 Kage, Dundee</div> <div>20 Audio, Glasgow</div> <div>21 The Central, Gateshead</div> <div>22 The Prince Albert, Brighton</div> <div>23 The Black Heart, London</div> <div>24 Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading (Franz only, acoustic, w/ Ben Marwood)</div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=750 Monday, October 21, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=750 Oxygen Thief - joins the XMR family! <div>We are delighted to announce that the incredible Oxygen Thief has joined the Xtra Mile Recordings family and will be releasing a mini album in December.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>‘Accidents Do Not Happen, They Are Caused’ is out 9th December 2013 and features some of Oxygen Thief’s most loved songs reworked, re-imagined and reinvented with the ferociousness of a full on rock band. Lead track ‘Terry Nutkins Salute’ is out digitally the same day.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Oxygen Thief is the alias of Bristol's Barry Dolan; touring and recording as a solo acoustic act with all the passion, intensity, and volume of a full band, he has shared stages with Frank Turner, Jonah Matranga, Mongol Horde, and Ben Marwood as well as performing at T In the Park, 2000 Trees, and ArcTanGent festivals.&nbsp;</div> <div>Content with playing acoustic guitar &quot;<span style="font-style: italic;">with such ferocity that it takes the top of your head off</span>&quot; (as Tom Robinson from BBC 6Music put it), he had no plans to turn Oxygen Thief into a band but Neil and Ben from of Xtra Mile's own The Retrospective Soundtrack Players had other ideas; re-recording some of his songs with distortion pedals firmly engaged and firing the demos at his inbox.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>So, Barry dusted off his electric guitar and started rehearsing and recording with this new line-up and played their first shows; opening for Left Side Brain in Bristol, and at London's legendary charity knees-up Lexapalooza in March 2013.</div> <div>Solo, acoustic, loud / 3 piece, electric, louder: Oxygen Thief will tour the UK in both incarnations to celebrate the release of the ‘Accidents Do Not Happen, They Are Caused’ mini album – firstly solo supporting Jonah Matranga (far, onelindrawing) and then full band headline shows as well as a support slot for Jamie Lenman. Full dates below.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Oxygen Thief has been unofficially part of the Xtra Mile family for a while now – Charlie Caplowe, Managing Director of Xtra Mile explains: “<span style="font-style: italic;">We’re delighted to have Oxygen Thief join the XM clan. To be honest he’d somehow managed to get himself onto so many Xtra Mile Recordings bills and stages over this last summer that we were almost convinced he was already signed!&quot;</span></div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Dolan says: &quot;<span style="font-style: italic;">Having released a split EP with Ben Marwood &amp; Jim Lockey (2009's ‘Exclamation At Asterisk Hash’) I've watched them go from strength to strength since signing to Xtra Mile, and we've often chatted about whether I might end up joining them on the label someday. The opening song (There Can Be Only One) from the band mini album appeared on that split in acoustic form, so I'm glad to have it kick off the new release as a link back to the fun we had touring together. I'm excited to be joining a roster with so many other acts that I've been both a huge fan of, and great friends with, over the years, especially as the label celebrates its 10th anniversary.</span>&quot;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Tour dates:&nbsp;</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Solo tour supporting Jonah Matranga &nbsp;</div> <div>November</div> <div>12th: London - Windmill Brixton</div> <div>13th: Newport - Le Pub</div> <div>14th: Stoke-on-Trent: Minster's</div> <div>15th: Nottingham - Guitar Bar</div> <div>16th: Dunlop - Auld Hoose</div> <div>17th: Aberdeen - Tunnels</div> <div>18th: Edinburgh - Sneaky Pete's</div> <div>19th: Glasgow - Nice &amp;

However, it wasn't until he discovered punk and hardcore music that he realized music’s healing and therapeutic power.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">Over the past 8 years, few young musicians in Canada have put on as many miles as Goud who toured for years as a member of a post-hardcore band and has more recently transitioned into life on the road as a singer/songwriter with accompaniment by an ever-rotating slew of guests and friend musicians.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">On signing with Xtra Mile Recordings, Northcote’s main man Goud states:</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">&quot;The Northcote team is excited and grateful to be working with Xtra Mile. I felt at home while playing for the first time in Europe this past spring at the Pirate Satellite Festival in Stuttgart, and I am looking forward to returning next month to support Dave Hause for 25+ shows. We're very excited to be joining our new label home in Europe.&quot;&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">The new self-titled album was produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Cave Singers, Dan Mangan) at The Hive in Vancouver, and is Northcote’s most forthcoming and confident album to date, reflecting this young songwriter’s increasing maturity and experience. Breaking the stereotype of the reserved and solemn cafe singer/songwriter, the album entices both the performers and the listeners to come out of their shell.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">On ‘NORTHCOTE’, Goud further strengthens his voice as an emerging Canadian artist. Confident, full chords replace contemplative ballads, and the influence of his eclectic background of punk.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">Check out a taster of the album here with the track ‘<span style="font-weight: bold;">When You Cry’.</span>&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F112600175%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-78f5z"></iframe></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"> And pre-order the album at the following places: <a href="http://bit.ly/1eZs3J3 " target="_self">http://bit.ly/1eZs3J3</a></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.northcotemusic.com" target="_blank">www.northcotemusic.com</a>&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.facebook.com/northcotemusic" target="_blank">www.facebook.com/northcotemusic</a></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.twitter.com/northcotemusic" target="_blank">www.twitter.com/northcotemusic</a>&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com" target="_self">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=742 Wednesday, October 02, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=742 DRAG THE RIVER <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">DRAG THE RIVER</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">SIGN TO XTRA MILE RECORDINGS AND RELEASE BRAND NEW ALBUM&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings </span>are excited to announce that they have signed the incredible and influential country / rock band, <span style="font-weight: bold;">Drag The River</span> and will be releasing their new album across the world this autumn.&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">On <span style="font-weight: bold;">15th October 2013</span>, the self titled, <span style="font-weight: bold;">’Drag The River’ </span>LP will be released worldwide (except North America) as a digital download. From the <span style="font-weight: bold;">5th November 2013</span> it will exist on CD/LP &amp; digital download worldwide (including North America). &nbsp;We are also happy to announce Drag The River’s phenomenal 2008 album <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘You Can’t Live This Way’ </span>is being re-released digitally on <span style="font-weight: bold;">15th October 2013 </span>in both territories.

Transplanted from Missouri, the band resides in Colorado comprising of the talents of Chad Price (of ALL), Jon Snodgrass (of Armchair Martian, Scorpios), JJ Nobody (of NOBODYS) &amp; Dave Barker (of Pinhead Circus). &nbsp;Drag The River began in 1996, when Chad was playing in ALL and Jon was rocking in Armchair Martian. &nbsp;The two wanted an outlet for the more laid-back, country-influenced songs they were both writing. &nbsp;They are one of those bands that manage to transcend the confines and boundaries of the musical world and become more like a legend. There’s something about their haunting croon and fuzzed-out Telecasters that make everything fit together so perfectly, hitting that same elusive mix of rock n’ roll and alt-country that The Replacements defined and so many others have tried to cop.&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">Coinciding with the release of this album they are taking to the road across North America with a full band in October as well as Jon and Chad performing as a duo at <span style="font-weight: bold;">The Fest</span> in November.&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;

The track will be released on a split, coloured 7” vinyl – with Beans On Toast on the flipside – as part of the Xtra Mile Single Sessions: The Tenth Anniversary Edition.&nbsp;</div> <div>It features on the second of the 4 vinyl released every Monday in October as part of this highly collectable series.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>As well as this, the band have recently made available their previous album ‘All That We Know’ on digital download for the first time, this side of the pond.</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>For the uninitiated, Larry and His Flask make music that lies somewhere between a barn raising and a mosh pit. The New York Times calls them &quot;uncommonly joyous&quot; and &quot;deviously astute&quot;, while their live show is a &quot;breathless, polymorphous good time.&quot; Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized line-up with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed - unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator. &nbsp;Performances see members careening wildly across the stage with instruments, narrowly avoiding harrowing collisions amongst themselves and frequently trading said instruments mid-song while still maintaining pitch-perfect 4-part harmonies.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Click here for a taster of their live antics – filmed at their London Forum show:&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/RNYh_z8Uius" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <div>“<span style="font-style: italic;">There is so much verve and spirit on display, not to mention clever songwriting, which sees them weave moving, intriguing and entertaining stories through their heartfelt music.

To showcase the day and night/yin and yang/black and white the double album is split into two discs: disc one brings together the heavier side of life. Brutal riffs and intense vocals on songs such as “Shower Of Scorn”, “The Fuck Of It All” and “Fizzy Blood”. Disc 2 shows Jamie’s strength for melody and song writing – from the beautiful “It’s Hard To Be A Gentleman” to the big band jazz of “Pretty Please” to the intensely moving “Saturday Night”.</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>In between writing music, Jamie works as an illustrator for various clients including Bloomsbury, The Guardian and Doctor Who Magazine.

We're not out there telling people what to think or making partisan political statements but we're questioning the way we live our lives, suggesting things can be done differently and trying to get people to draw their own conclusions.&quot;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>This single comes at a very busy time for the Boom.

The band began recording back in October 2012. Ten months later (but after only seven full days of recording) the album is finally in the can. Titled 'The Southern Wild', and recorded by James Bragg in various locations, including band members' houses, it proffers eleven slices of country, folk and bluegrass that doffs its cap to English, Irish and American traditions while retaining a rustic Westcountry lilt and a keen anarchist bent; with a respectful nod to the likes of Woven Hand, Murder By Death, Johnny Cash, Phil Ochs, The Handsome Family, Austin Lucas, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Emmylou Harris and CSN/Y. &nbsp;The band's decision to record a chiefly acoustic record came after the rousing reception they received from acoustic tours and shows over the past two years.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">Whether Crazy Arm are setting their sights on frontier melodrama ('Hell To Pay', 'County Jaws'), bluegrass clawhammer stomp ('Don't Be Cruel'), late-'60s vocal harmonies and protest song ('Remembrance'), brooding a cappella ('Oh Death', 'The Valley Of Weeping') or redemptive gothic Americana ('Black Canyon'), there's always that slightly askew homegrown sensibility at the core. It sounds nothing like the guitar-throttling hardcore country rock of their first two albums, 'Born To Ruin' and 'Union City Breath', but there's plenty of common ground if you care to look. Of course, this isn't the first time that a band have highlighted the cultural similarities between punk and folk/country but it may be the first time that a band have done it from such stylistic extremes. 'The Southern Wild' is the sound of a band who have never been content with churning out the same thing twice, who delight in discovering new and old music, and who revel in pursuing their own dogged agenda, wherever it takes them.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">But things haven't been running that smoothly for the rock Crazy Arm. In January, bassist Tim Rowing-Parker left to fulfil his own musical destiny with powerpop trio, Woahnows. The band continued to work in the studio and write/demo new songs for their third rock album while looking for a new bass player. Then in May, drummer Simon Marsh quit. Cue uncertainty and a weighty state of limbo. But for Crazy Arm, the show isn't over 'til the fat lad sings. So, after some soul-searching, and with a slew of great new musicians ready to help out (take a bow, new drummer Matt Colwell and bassist Nathan Stevens), the band have re-booted, found their footing and are back in the saddle. Giddy up, indeed.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">Crazy Arm embark on a UK tour in September to coincide with the release.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;

Following the release of his fifth studio album ‘Tape Deck Heart’ in April, he played a sold-out tour of the UK and has been on the road with his band The Sleeping Souls ever since. So far his global tour has taken him across Europe, to the Far East, Australasia and North America.</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>‘Losing Days’, the third single to taken from ‘Tape Deck Heart’, is released on 1st September through Xtra Mile Recordings.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=725 Tuesday, August 27, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=725 CHRIS T-T NEW ALBUM AND TOURS <div><br /> </div> <div>Described as an “Outstanding, indispensable genius. A modern-day Blake” by Sunday Times and “One of the great underground artists of our time.” by Jon Snow - CHRIS T-T is truly one of the nation’s best songwriting talents.</div> <div><br /> He returns this Autumn with his ninth studio album – ‘<span style="font-weight: bold;">The Bear</span>’ released <span style="font-weight: bold;">7th October 2013</span> - his third album for label Xtra Mile Recordings. Recorded with his band The Hoodrats, together they have departed from the paired down introspection of 2010’s Love Is Not Rescue and instead created a full-on psych rock record with hints of Sebadoh, early Hold Steady, early Yo La Tengo, or Blur at their heavier moments and with a nod to grimy garage-y 60s like The Faces and Animals. Channelling these influences, Chris and his band taped the album live in a room and completed it in 3 or 4 takes just as those bands would have done back then. The result is a fascinating and excitingly fresh sounding record and some of his best work to date.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> The title track of the album is released as a single, also 7th October 2013. A lyric video to which you can see here:&nbsp;<br /> <br /> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/9QbQ5TCstIw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></div> <div><br /> And you can pre-order the album from here:&nbsp;<a href="http://bit.ly/16PR4ix" target="_self">http://bit.ly/16PR4ix</a><br /> <br /> Coinciding with the album and single release Chris T-T returns to the touring circuit – firstly as main support on the Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo album headline tour and then straight on to his own headline UK tour.

The New York Times calls them &quot;uncommonly joyous&quot; and &quot;deviously astute&quot;, while their live show is a &quot;breathless, polymorphous good time.&quot; Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized line-up with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed - unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator. &nbsp;Performances see members careening wildly across the stage with instruments, narrowly avoiding harrowing collisions amongst themselves and frequently trading said instruments mid-song while still maintaining pitch-perfect 4-part harmonies.&nbsp;</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Click here for a taster of their live antics – filmed at their recent London Forum show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNYh_z8Uius&amp;feature=youtu.be</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Larry and His Flask isJamin Marshall (drums, vocals), Jesse Marshall (bass), Ian Cook (vocals, guitar), DallinBulkley (guitar) and Andrew Carew (banjo) and Kirk Skatvold (mandolin).</div> <div><br /> </div> <div><br /> </div> <div>Order ‘By The Lamplight’ –&nbsp;</div> <div>Xtra Mile Recordings - http://bit.ly/132cLfj</div> <div>Amazon - http://amzn.to/12lPlxw</div> <div>iTunes - http://bit.ly/185X1t5</div> <div><br /> </div> <div>For orders in the USA of 'By The Lamplight:</div> <div>Visit Silver Sprocket - http://www.silversprocket.net/blog</div> <div>Direct link - http://silversprocket.gostorego.com/larryandhisflask.html</div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=695 Wednesday, June 19, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=695 Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">NEW SINGLE – '<span style="font-weight: bold;">HOME/HOSPITALS' – 'ENGLAND’S DEAD'</span></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">Following on from an epic touring schedule that has seen <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jim Lockey &amp; The Solemn Sun</span> on the road since January both headlining their own UK tour and as support to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">Dropkick Murphy’s</span> huge East Coast America tour – they can now announce news of their next single.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Home/Hospitals’</span> backed with fan favourite <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘England’s Dead’</span> will be digitally released on <span style="font-weight: bold;">8th July 2013</span> through Xtra Mile Recordings – and both tracks perfectly showcase the band’s intriguing songwriting craft and knack for catchy melodies with all-out rock riffs.

The summer can’t come soon enough.”</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Other acts confirmed to play GreenHouse sets on Friday include Oxygen Thief, Ady Suleiman, Charlotte Carpenter and Dan Heaver.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">2000trees organizer James Scarlett says: “This is a one-off treat for all fans of Xtra Mile artists and it is fitting that we honour their contribution to new and underground British music in the year that their biggest act, Frank Turner, is headlining 2000trees.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">“We are music fans first and foremost and we run 2000trees to share our love of great music with like-minded festival-goers, so we cannot wait to see what will be a very special year for 2000trees.”</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">2000trees has already confirmed Mystery Jets, Stornoway, King Charles, Funeral for a Friend, And So I Watch You From Afar, We Are The Ocean and INME, among the 80 acts on four stages over three days.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Frank Turner added: “Xtra Mile has backed me since the start and it has a deep love of new and underground British music, which is shared by the great guys at 2000trees who also booked me as far back as 2007. So this is undoubtedly going to be one of the highlights of my year.”</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Tickets for Thursday’s Early Entry night are almost sold out.

In the Awards’ words:</p> <p style="margin: 0px;">•<span class="Apple-tab-span" style="white-space:pre"></span>“Often the best small festivals spring from an organic labour of love and a long-time dream which has been shared by thousands more. These festivals should be celebrated, not just for the courage and vision shown by their organisers, but also because they never forget where they've come from, supporting their local communities and new music along the way while retaining an independent spirit and resisting commercial saturation.”</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">2000trees is also ‘A Greener Festival Award’ winner for its dedication to being one of the UK’s greenest festivals, set within the stunning backdrop of Upcote Farm, near Cheltenham.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> <a href="http://www.twothousandtreesfestival.co.uk/">http://www.twothousandtreesfestival.co.uk/</a></p> <p></p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=689 Thursday, May 09, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=689 Larry And His Flask <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: left;"></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">LARRY AND HIS FLASK</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">- Brand New Album ‘By The Lamplight’ out 24th June 2013 –</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">- Plus a huge UK and European tour </span>-</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Following on from the release of their recent EP <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Hobo’s Lament’</span>, Xtra Mile Recordings’ newest signings Larry and His Flask announce details of their forthcoming full length album.&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">The six-piece from Oregon, USA will release their outstanding sophomore album ‘By The Lamplight’ worldwide on <span style="font-weight: bold;">24th June 2013</span> further spreading the gospel of their infectious and frenetic homespun country/anarchic punk. They are currently winning over the hearts and minds of UK and Europe as they’re rip it up on tour with Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls as well as playing a HUGE run of headline shows. Converts are coming in thick and fast. Full list of dates over-leaf. They will return to the US for a full North American Tour that sees them criss-crossing the country non-stop until September. &nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">For the uninitiated, Larry and His Flask make music that lies somewhere between a barn raising and a mosh pit. The New York Times calls them &quot;uncommonly joyous&quot; and &quot;deviously astute&quot;, while their live show is a &quot;breathless, polymorphous good time.&quot; Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized quintet with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed - unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator. &nbsp;Performances see members careening wildly across the stage with instruments, narrowly avoiding harrowing collisions amongst themselves and frequently trading said instruments mid-song while still maintaining pitch-perfect 4-part harmonies.&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Click here for a taster of their live antics – filmed at their recent London Forum show: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/RNYh_z8Uius" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Larry and His Flask is Jamin Marshall (drums, vocals), Jesse Marshall (bass), Ian Cook (vocals, guitar), Dallin Bulkley (guitar) and Andrew Carew (banjo) and Kirk Skatvold (mandolin).</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings Charlie Caplowe says: “Saw this lot in the States last year and was blown away by their frenetic mad bluegrass/punk. From that moment on I couldn’t wait to release their music on Xtra Mile and get them over to here to play. Go see. Go buy!”&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">The band says: “We couldn’t be happier joining the Xtra Mile family. &nbsp;We’ve held off releasing our music outside North America for far too long, waiting for the perfect fit. &nbsp;We are sure that we found our match.”</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Full touring schedule is as follows:</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">**SUPPORTING FRANK TURNER &amp;

Full list of dates over-leaf.&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Formed by brothers Jamin and Jesse Marshall in 2003, the Flask spent its first half-decade stuck in a primordial, punk-rock goop, where a blood-sweat-and-beers live show took priority over things like notes and melodies. Don’t misunderstand: The band was (somewhat) skilled and an absolute joy to watch, but the goal was always the party over perfection.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">More recently, however, Larry And His Flask have gone from crawl to sprint at breakneck speed. The band’s new songs are a blurry blend of lightning fast string-band picking, gorgeous nods to old-school country, and sublime multi-part harmonies, all presented through a prism of punk chaos. The shows are gloriously physical displays of live music’s sheer power. Keep your eyes peeled, or risk taking the heavy end of Jesse Marshall’s flailing, stand-up bass right between the eyes.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings Charlie Caplowe says: “Saw this lot in the States last year and was blown away by their frenetic mad bluegrass/punk. From that moment on I couldn’t wait to release their music on Xtra Mile and get them over to here to play. Go see. Go buy!”&nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">The band says: “We couldn’t be happier joining the Xtra Mile family. We’ve held off releasing our music outside North America for far too long, waiting for the perfect fit. &nbsp;We are sure that we found our match.”</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Ian Cook – Vocals + Guitar</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Jamin Marshall – Vocals + Percussion</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Jeshua Marshall – Vocals + Double Bass + Baritone + Harmonicas</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Dallin Bulkley – Vocals + Guitar + Not Guilty</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Andrew Carew – Vocals + Banjo + Trombone</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Kirk Skatvold – Vocals + Mandolin + Trumpet</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Full touring schedule is as follows:</p> <p style="margin: 0px;">April</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">**SUPPORTING FRANK TURNER &amp;

Expect swirling masses of humanity where once there were people standing waiting. This is what a Riverboat Gamblers show does to people.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">The triumphant punk-rock rallying call of<span style="font-weight: bold;"> ‘The Wolf You Feed’ </span>comes out on vinyl after its initial release in August last year. Teaming up with Grammy-Award winning engineer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power) for their sixth album, Riverboat Gamblers created a darker record than any of their back catalogue with hooks hefting hooks aplenty. Just a listen to the first fifteen seconds of the opener <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Good Veins’ </span>proves that this approach was entirely justified.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">'The Wolf You Feed' perfectly captures the era when punk rock and old rock ‘n’ roll converged: ““it's edgy and intense but still catchy so that people could dance to it if they wanted to, and they will want to....my only worry is they won't ever be able to stop” explains Wiebe.</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">And you will want to dance.

It's an incredible place to live and the people are proud to call it home. I moved here 3 years ago and intend to remain here as long as I can. I live very close to the ocean and it continues to be a huge inspiration to me and my music. I was very lucky compared to the thousands whose homes and lives were drastically affected by the storm and I won't ever take that for granted. The boardwalk will be torn down and rebuilt very soon. It's all part of the healing process.&quot;</p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Speaking of <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘City By The Sea’, </span>Caruana says &quot;I really felt like I owed this to myself and to all the people who have supported my music for so long.

From humble beginnings and extensive touring of the UK, Frank’s burgeoning talents as a solo writer and performer began to resonate with a small but fervent fan base, but breakout success followed in the wake of a string of critically acclaimed albums, resulting in a recent 12 month period in which Frank headlined a sold-out Wembley Arena show and performed by invitation of Danny Boyle at the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.</p><br /> <br /> Currently on tour in Australasia with a sold out run of UK dates to follow in April ‘The Way I Tend To Be’ is an insightful and arresting documentary for new and diehard fans alike.</p> <br />The new album <span style="font-weight: bold;">Tape Deck Heart </span>is released on <span style="font-weight: bold;">April 22nd </span>on <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings</span>.</p> <br /> <br />'The Way I Tend To Be’ Documentary:</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8vbDpQ8iPuI?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p> <br /> <p>April<br /> 17th&nbsp;Manchester&nbsp;Academy&nbsp;SOLD OUT<br /> 18th&nbsp;Glasgow &nbsp;O2 Academy <br /> 19th&nbsp;Leeds &nbsp;&nbsp;Uni Refectory &nbsp;SOLD OUT<br /> 21st&nbsp;Bristol&nbsp;&nbsp;Academy &nbsp;SOLD OUT<br /> 24th&nbsp;Birmingham&nbsp;Academy&nbsp;SOLD OUT<br /> 25th&nbsp;London&nbsp;&nbsp;Forum&nbsp;&nbsp;SOLD OUT</p> <p><a href="http://www.frank-turner.com" target="_self">www.frank-turner.com</a></p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=675 Friday, April 05, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=675 Glossary...

Joined on record by a collection of friends and fellow musicians, mostly from the Reading scene he calls home, songs switch naturally from the stripped-back, bare bones of guitar and vocals to full-band affairs with a distinctly live feel, all click tracks and metronomes discarded (“including the parts that needed it” - Marwood). Thirty-five minutes of melody half-sung, half-spoken, but always pointed regardless of whether the targets are his own shortcomings or a BBC One light entertainment show, this is pop music for the bitter.<br /> <br /> To coincide with the release Ben steps out on a short headline UK tour. <br /> <b>Dates are:</b><br /> <b>MAY</b><br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">17 London Camden Monarch (free show)<br /> 18 Reading Rising Sun Arts Centre</span><br /> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">JUNE</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">1 Leicester Cookie Jar @ Crumblin' Cookie</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">2 Birmingham Bright House (free early show - 8pm)</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">3 York The Black Swan</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">4 Dundee Cerberus Bar</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">5 Edinburgh Pivo</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">7 Cheltenham Frog and Fiddle</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">8 Bristol The Louisiana</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><br /> </span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">This may only be album two, but Marwood is already a mainstay of the UK live scene, having notched up countless shows over the past decade alongside the likes of Billy Bragg and labelmates Chris T-T, Franz Nicolay, Jim Lockey &amp; the Solemn Sun, Beans on Toast and Retrospective Soundtrack Players. 2011 saw him embark on his first two national headline tours and a month-long stint as opening support to friend and label-mate Frank Turner and 2012 was spent polishing off the new record, as well as headlining the GreenHouse stage at 2000Trees and being part of Turner's extended backing band at the London Olympic Opening Ceremony.&nbsp;</span></p> <p></p><br /> Praise for '<span style="font-weight: bold;">Outside There's A Curse'</span>:<br /> <br /> &quot;Packed with witty lyrical observations.. bold, intelligent and wholesome.&quot; 8/10 - Rock Sound<br /> <br /> &quot;There's an over riding sense here.. that we could be peering into the colourful minutiae of a songwriter whose story will be well worth following.” – 4K’s Kerrang<br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=673 Wednesday, March 20, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=673 Going that Xtra Mile since 2003 <br /> March 2013, marks the tenth anniversary of our London-based independent record label and all through this year we will be celebrating this frankly rather incredible achievement with a dazzling array of tremendously exciting projects. <br /> <br /> We’re kicking off the celebrations with a showcase gig at SXSW in Austin, Texas on <span style="font-weight: bold;">15th March 2013</span>. <span style="font-weight: bold;">Frank Turner </span>will headline before heading off on his huge worldwide tour and support comes from <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jim Lockey &amp; The Solemn Sun </span>- who are currently supporting <span style="font-weight: bold;">Dropkick Murphys </span>in the US - and new signings the Tennessee five piece <span style="font-weight: bold;">Glossary.</span> In April, we are Amazon’s Label Of The Month offering great prices on loads of our back catalogue on CD and digital as well as a free 15-track MP3 sampler.<br /> <br /> Throughout the rest of the year we will be creating special anniversary releases and brand new merchandise; announcing exclusive competitions and XM10 gigs featuring acts from our ever-increasing roster. We’re also taking-over a stage for an evening at the 2000trees UK Festival in July hosting Xtra Mile acts playing intimate, one-off acoustic sets. More information to be announced.<br /> <br /> Xtra Mile was set up initially in 2003 to release the critically acclaimed albums by Reuben and Million Dead. We built on this early success and steadily over the past ten years the label has grown exponentially covering genres rock, punk, folk, indie hardcore, from the UK and USA. With distribution deals on both sides of the Atlantic as well as across Europe, Xtra Mile is now very much a global outfit, with its records (yes, it still makes records) available in most corners of the globe and an inspiring roster ranging from acts that have achieved mainstream success to unearthing and developing the best of underground music.<br /> <br /> To commemorate how it all began, we will be re-issuing those albums by Reuben and Million Dead so keep an eye out on our website, twitter and facebook for more information on those and all of our plans for this special year.<br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=672 Wednesday, March 13, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=672 Riverboat Gamblers <span style="font-weight: bold;">RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS</span><br /> - Spring European tour this April and May - <br /> - Vinyl release of<span style="font-weight: bold;"> ‘The Wolf You Feed’ </span>-<br /> <br /> To celebrate the vinyl release of their album <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘The Wolf You Feed’ </span>the anthemic Texan thrust of Riverboat Gamblers is storming its way to Europe this spring as they tour this April and May.&nbsp; This will be available from <span style="font-weight: bold;">22nd April 2013 </span>on 12” colour vinyl and features an extra exclusive track.<br /> <br /> Together with enigmatic frontman Mike Wiebe, Riverboat Gamblers will roam every spare inch of venues throughout Germany, as well as pit stops in Netherlands - including the awesome Groezrock Festival - Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy and audiences will immediately be part of the show. Expect swirling masses of humanity where once there were people standing waiting. This is what a Riverboat Gamblers show does to people.<br /> <br /> The triumphant punk-rock rallying call of <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘The Wolf You Feed’ </span>comes out on vinyl after its initial release in August last year. Teaming up with Grammy-Award winning engineer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power) for their sixth album, Riverboat Gamblers created a darker record than any of their back catalogue with hooks hefting hooks aplenty. Just a listen to the first fifteen seconds of the opener ‘Good Veins’ proves that this approach was entirely justified.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">The Wolf You Feed </span>perfectly captures the era when punk rock and old rock ‘n’ roll converged:<span style="font-weight: bold;"> “it's edgy and intense but still catchy so that people could dance to it if they wanted to, and they will want to....my only worry is they won't ever be able to stop” </span>explains Wiebe.<br /> <br /> And you will want to dance.

Produced and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Weezer, Rage Against the Machine, Interpol) ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is the follow-up to the Winchester-born folk/punk hero’s 2011 album ‘England Keep My Bones’ which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.<br /> <br /> The first single from <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Tape Deck Heart’ </span>will be the sublime <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Recovery’. </span>One of several break-up songs on the album, Recovery sets tales of cider-fuelled nights in strange flats to joyous, jubilant, singalong rock. “I like that contrast between upbeat music and dark lyrics,” says Turner. “It sounds like a happy song, but it’s clearly not. The album is about unexpected change and a big part of it is relationships ending. <br /> <br /> Fans who pre-order the album <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Tape Deck Heart’</span> on iTunes will receive <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Recovery’ </span>as an instant download.

Crammed with his Americana storytelling across a pace and passion to match any punk outfit, it's as good an introduction to Franz Nicolay as you could get. He worked with producer oktopus, of the innovative New Jersey industrial/hip-hop group dälek, to move beyond the singer-songwriter sound world and create a dark, explosive, and cinematic opus of personal and political anger.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> With the help of Guignol rhythm section John Bollinger (drums) and George Rush (bass, tuba) and guests including Ezra Kire (Leftover Crack, Morning Glory), Franz Nicolay has woven tales for everyone to hold onto.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Franz is about to embark on an extensive European tour, playing any and everywhere.

This time, dates will be more intimate for what will be an incredible evening of powerful storytelling and heartfelt sing-a-longs. <br /> <br /> Tickets are on sale now from the usual outlets and the venues themselves. <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">&nbsp;<br /> JUNE 2013<br /> 11 EXETER CAVERN<br /> 21 SOUTHAMPTON JOINERS<br /> 22 CARDIFF BUFFALO BAR<br /> 23 BRISTOL CROFT<br /> 25 LEEDS BRUDENELL SOCIAL CLUB<br /> 26 NEWCASTLE CLUNY<br /> 27 MANCHESTER ALTEREGO<br /> 28 GLASGOW 13TH NOTE<br /> 29 CAMBRIDGE CORNERHOUSE<br /> 30 LEICESTER FIREBUG<br /> JULY 2013<br /> 2 LONDON OLD BLUE LAST<br /> 3 KINGSTON CRICKETERS</span><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Tim Barry has long left behind his harder edged music, but not the soul or passion which fueled it. One of his songs, 'Prosser's Gabriel', led to a freedom fighting slave's final resting place from the 1800s being turned from a car park into a park memorial to honour his name.

The songs are well-intentioned narratives that emphasize the great attributes of mankind — mercy, redemption, forgiveness and second chances.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> Quite simply – it blew us away and by giving this great band a home outside of North America for the first time, we're hoping for big things. This release looks like it could be the one to take them to new levels.<br /> <br /> Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings, Charlie Caplowe says of signing the band: “We’ve been playing this album for a few months now after stumbling across it in the US. I am massively excited we also get to put it out and hopefully more people will now hear it and also love it”<br /> <br /> And the band says: &quot;We are really excited to finally have the opportunity for our music to reach people in the UK and Europe.

Hot on the heels of the World Darts Championship 2013, the video depicts the band hoping to save a pub from closure by winning the local darts tournament! To help them on their way they enlist the help of Bulleye’s Jim Bowen. But will they succeed? <br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">Watch the video here to find out: <a href="http://youtu.be/xnwt-Tvgwg8" target="_blank">http://youtu.be/xnwt-Tvgwg8</a></span><br /> <br /> In line with the tour, Sonic Boom Six has set up a very special competition where fans can win an Orange Crush PiX 12L Amplifier signed by the band, a pair of tickets to a show of their choosing and a meet and greet with the band and an EA Games Sims3 + Showtime Expansion Pack for PC.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">Enter the competition here: </span><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/sb6competition/" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight: bold;">http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/sb6competition/</span></a><br /> <br /> Tracklisting for ‘Keep On Believing’ is as follow:<br /> 1.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Keep On Believing (Single Mix)<br /> 2.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Let’s Push Things Forward<br /> 3.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Keep On Believing (Capitol 1212 remix)<br /> <br /> The single is taken from Sonic Boom Six’s brilliant new self-titled album. Laila K, vocalist and front woman from SB6 on the new single; <span style="font-style: italic;">&quot;Personally this is my favourite song off the album as it reminds me of when I got into music and bands and how passionate and positive music can make you feel.&quot;</span><br /> <br /> The new self-titled album was produced and mixed by Peter Miles (Futures, We Are The Ocean, The King Blues), and massively built on the band's previous reputation for progressive, genre-hopping punk rock, by adding contemporary electronica, crushing rock riffs, huge vocal hooks and anthemic song-writing to the mix. It’s a HUGE step forward in every aspect for the band, and one that will rightfully establish them as one of the most exciting new/old prospects in the UK. <br /> <br /> Late last year the band announced a run of UK headline shows for next February 2013, with support from The LaFontaines and Under The Influence, which follows their main support slot through January with The Blackout.

It's an incredible place to live and the people are proud to call it home. I moved here 3 years ago and intend to remain here as long as I can. I live very close to the ocean and it continues to be a huge inspiration to me and my music. I was very lucky compared to the thousands whose homes and lives were drastically affected by the storm and I won't ever take that for granted. The boardwalk will be torn down and rebuilt very soon. It's all part of the healing process.&quot;<br /> <br /> Speaking of ‘City By The Sea’, Caruana says &quot;I really felt like I owed this to myself and to all the people who have supported my music for so long. I won't let either of us down.&quot;<br /> <br /> The download of ‘City By The Sea’ EP is available for pre-order here in the UK and Europe. http://bit.ly/VQoVBp &amp; a CD of the EP will be available in April 2013.<br /> <br /> See Vinnie live in 2013:<br /> 17th January The Macbeth, London&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> 18th January The Shipping Forcast, Liverpool<br /> 20th April Hit The Deck Festival, <a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com " target="_blank">http://www.xtramilerecordings.com </a>Bristol<br /> 21st April Hit The Deck Festival, Nottingham<br /> 22nd April Cluny Newcastle&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> 23rd April Brudnell Leeds<br /> 24th April Sacred Trinity Manchester<br /> <br /> <a href="http:// www.facebook.com/vinniecaruanamusic" target="_blank">http:// www.facebook.com/vinniecaruanamusic</a><br /> <a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com " target="_blank">www.xtramilerecordings.com </a><br /> <br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=645 Thursday, January 10, 2013 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=645 Straight Lines We Are The Ocean & release new ‘Escapology' EP To support We Are The Ocean in January &amp; February &amp; release new ‘Escapology' EP on 28th January 2013<br /> <br /> 2012 was quite a year for STRAIGHT LINES; they released their brilliant second album ‘Freaks Like Us’ (which spawned three singles), embarked on their first European tour with label mates Sonic Boom Six, secured a load of press, radio and television, toured with The Blackout, Canterbury, Presidents of the USA and just finished their own mammoth headline tour! <br /> <br /> The band can now reveal their first plans for 2013.

This follows up from ‘Virus’, the first single to be taken from the album ‘Sonic Boom Six’, which apart from gracing music TV channel and radio playists, is now on over 175,000 views on youtube.<br /> <br /> Laila K, vocalist and front woman from SB6 on the new single; &quot;Personally this is my favourite song off the album as it reminds me of when I got into music and bands and how passionate and positive music can make you feel.&quot;<br /> <br /> The new self titled album was produced and mixed by Peter Miles (Futures, We Are The Ocean, The King Blues), and massively built on the band's previous reputation for progressive, genre-hopping punk rock, by adding contemporary electronica, crushing rock riffs, huge vocal hooks and anthemic song-writing to the mix. It’s a HUGE step forward in every aspect for the band, and one that will rightfully establish them as one of the most exciting new/old prospects in the UK. <br /> <br /> Live wise, SB6 have already toured the UK, Europe and the US multiple times in the last few years, firmly establishing themselves as a headline act. They have also played and toured with the likes of The King Blues, Less Than Jake, Hard-Fi, Reel Big Fish and Skindred, AS WELL AS playing the Main Stage Reading and Leeds festivals, Hevy Festival and headlined the Red Bull Bedroom Jam stage at Sonisphere. They are just finishing up their SOLD OUT current UK headline tour now, with London show on Weds 21st November.

This week the mighty Frank Turner &amp; The Sleeping Souls headline tour begins in earnest - covering the length and breadth of the country and spanning right into December. <br /> <br /> It is going to be phenomenal – Frank and the band haven’t played a UK tour like this for over 18 months and having just finished recording album number 5 expect a sneaky peak at some brand new songs alongside his back catalogue of ever growing classics. <br /> &nbsp;<br /> Most of the shows are sold out now but don’t despair, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/xtramilerecordings" target="_self">XMTV</a> will be bringing you regular video updates giving you an exclusive insight to life on the road, backstage access, tour bus banter, short interviews and more. We’ll also want to film you and your reaction to the shows – so if you want to be on XMTV – seek out this guy.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/46376365@N06/8167036135/" title="greg by presscounsel, on Flickr"><img width="240" height="240" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8483/8167036135_c7f2494971_m.jpg" alt="greg" /></a>&nbsp;<br /> <br /> On tour with FT&amp;TSS are fellow Xtra Milers <span style="font-weight: bold;">Tim Barry</span> and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jim Lockey &amp; The Solemn Sun</span> who will provide support throughout the tour. <br /> As not everyone will have yet cottoned on to how awesome these two acts are - we thought we’d give any newcomers the lowdown. Here’s everything you need to know: <br /> &nbsp;<br /> First on at each night of the tour will be Cheltenham’s best folk/rockers <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jim Lockey &amp; The Solemn Sun</span>. <br /> This year they’ve played SXSW, released their critically adored album ‘Death’ back in April; played alongside Frank at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony and were declared Radio 1’s Zane Lowe’s Next Hype.

http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=624 Friday, October 19, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=624 Tim Barry signs to Xtra Mile Recordings <span style="font-weight: bold;">TIM BARRY</span><br /> Signs to Xtra Mile Recordings<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">- New album, ’40 Miler’ 5th November 2012</span> -<br /> <br /> Xtra Mile Recordings are really excited to announce that the formidable <span style="font-weight: bold;">Tim Barry</span> is joining our roster.<br /> <br /> We welcome the Richmond, Virginia-based singer-songwriter with open arms and plans are already afoot to release his incredible new album, <span style="font-weight: bold;">’40 Miler’,</span> on <span style="font-weight: bold;">5th November </span>(UK + Europe) which coincides nicely with Tim joining Frank Turner on his huge UK tour throughout November. Full dates are below.<br /> <br /> ’40 Miler’ is Tim’s fifth solo album since his days fronting American punk band Avail. Themes of resilience and hope flow through the new record; &quot;If this record is uplifting compared to my old ones it's because I feel stronger from all the beat-downs and shit I've taken in the past” he explains. <br /> <br /> As well as beautiful Americana, Barry also takes his spare folk-country sound in a different direction, opting for a more raucous, rocking approach on several tracks, adding more electric guitar, organ, piano, harmonica, as well as the gorgeous voice of Richmond songstress Julie Karr to the mix. Barry says the fresh sound was intentional. While he crafted the record's dozen tracks by himself on piano and guitar, he had Karr and a cast of fellow Richmond musicians in mind while writing. &quot;My intent wasn't to bury them in the background, but to push them to the foreground to give them the exposure they deserve,&quot; he explains. &quot;They're all songwriters and all kick-ass musicians.&quot; <br /> <br /> The results blew Xtra Mile away and we hope they do you too. <br /> <br /> &nbsp;<br /> NOVEMBER 2012<br /> 11 NOTTINGHAM ROCK CITY <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 12 LEEDS O2 ACADEMY <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 13 LIVERPOOL O2 ACADEMY&nbsp; <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 14 SWANSEA BRANGWYN HALL &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> 15 READING HEXAGON <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 17 NEWCASTLE O2 ACADEMY <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 19 SHEFFIELD O2 ACADEMY<br /> 20 NORWICH UEA <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 22 MARGATE WINTER GARDENS&nbsp; <br /> WOLVERHAMPTON CIVIC HALL <br /> 24 LEAMINGTON SPA ASSEMBLY <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 25 LINCOLN ENGINE SHED <br /> 26 OXFORD O2 ACADEMY<span style="font-weight: bold;"> SOLD OUT</span><br /> 28 BRIGHTON CORN EXCHANGE <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> 29 SOUTHAMPTON GUILDHALL<span style="font-weight: bold;"> SOLD OUT</span><br /> 30 HALL FOR CORNWALL, TRURO <br /> DECEMBER 2012<br /> 01 BATH PAVILION <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span><br /> <br /> www.timbarryrva.com&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; www.xtramilerecordings.com <br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=622 Friday, October 05, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=622 The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Brand new album ‘The Catcher In The Rye’ out 15th October 2012.

That is exactly our plan,&quot; says Nick Diener of Flint, MI’s rock powerhouse <span style="font-weight: bold;">THE SWELLERS</span> about the direction they're taking on their new EP Running Out Of Places To Go which comes out <span style="font-weight: bold;">22nd October 2012</span> via <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings</span> (Frank Turner, Against Me!, Future of the Left…). In anticipation of the release of the EP, the Xtra Mile will be offering presale bundles on their website, <a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com" target="_self">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a>.<br /> <br /> &quot;Loud guitars and big drums have always been our thing,&quot; Nick explains about Running Out Of Places To Go. &quot;It feels awesome to have made such a great sounding bunch of songs on our own.&quot; From the getgo with the hugely infectious powerpop stunner &quot;Hands,&quot; the band's renewed excitement is palpable. &quot;That song came about very organically,&quot; Nick explains. &quot;The guitars were cleaner sounding, my vocals start off in a lower register... both things that are not very characteristic of us. But our mindset for this EP was 'if it sounds good, record it.' No outside opinions, no pressure. Once the chorus kicks in, it's a pretty unmistakable Swellers melody. The lyrics are pretty punk, too. One of our favorite songs we've ever written together.&quot; The enthusiasm spills over to the next four tracks, from the machine gun attack of &quot;Let Me In&quot;, to the anthemic &quot;Bad For Me&quot; to the soaring title track, Running Out Of Places To Go is the sound of a band who's returning to their musical roots and merging it with everything they've learned over the last decade. &quot;Every element involved in making this EP happen comes from a very grassroots, punk rock place.&quot;<br /> <br /> Running Out Of Places To Go was produced by Mark Michalik and will be released via Xtra Mile Recordings on 22nd October 2012. The Swellers is Nick Diener (vocals/guitar), Jonathan Diener (drums), Ryan Collins (guitar) and Anto Boros (bass). <br /> <br /> ‘Running Out Of Places To Go’ tracklisting:<br /> <br /> 1.

Once again they are the two categories that Frank is nominated for this year. Welsh rockers </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Future Of The Left </span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">receive the coveted nomination of </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Best Indie Album</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;"> for their third and critically praised album ‘the plot against common sense’ released in June of this year.&nbsp; And with Xtra Mile’s nomination for </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Best Small Label </span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">bringing the tally to four, the only other label that have received more nominations are Beggars Group and Ninja Tune. <br /> <br /> Managing Director and founder of Xtra Mile Charlie Caplowe says: “</span><span style="font-style: italic; font-size: 10pt;">Last year's AIM awards were the first time we'd been in the same room as some of the most inspiring and successful independent labels and people in the business. To not only be invited back this year but also to actually be involved in 4 nominations in 2012, is absurdly brilliant</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">.”<br /> <br /> To celebrate Xtra Mile are hosting a night at London's </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Bull &amp; Gate </span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">on </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">16th October</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;"> in conjunction with Club Fandango where we will be showing off our impressive roster of up and coming talent as well as some familiar Xtra Mile faces. Headlining the night is </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Future Of The Left</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">, with </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Chris T-T &amp; The Hoodrats</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">, and </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Fighting Fiction</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;"> also on the bill. The incomparable </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Beans On Toast </span><span style="font-size: 10pt;">will be compering the evening’s festivities, the mighty </span><span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 10pt;">Sonic Boom Six</span><span style="font-size: 10pt;"> will be DJ-ing and there are special guests still to be announced.<br /> <br /> Tickets are £10 in advance from here: <br /> <a href="http://www.wegottickets.com/bullandgate/event/187816" target="_self">http://www.wegottickets.com/bullandgate/event/187816</a><br /> <br /> The award nominations are a great achievement that caps off what has been an incredible year for a label so heavily affected by the London riots in August 2011. Since that devastating event, Xtra Mile has grown exponentially signing a wealth of new bands including US punks Against Me!, Best Album nominees Future Of The Left, Scottish indie legend Mull Historical Society, Derry rockers Fighting With Wire and ones to watch Jim Lockey &amp; The Solemn Sun.&nbsp; We’ve had Frank Turner perform as part of the Olympic 2012 Opening Ceremony with label mates, Jim Lockey, Ben Marwood and Emily Barker in his backing band – playing to almost 200,000 people over 2 nights of rehearsals and the opening ceremony itself – as well as the 25 million viewers on the BBC. Frank has also had his albums ‘England Keep My Bones’ (2011) and ‘Love, Ire &amp; Song’ (2008) certified silver in the UK and he sold out his headline show at the enormous Wembley Arena venue in April of this year. We have set up European distribution with Kartel who help promote our whole roster throughout Europe and more recently joined the ILG partnership for distribution throughout North America. And if all that wasn’t enough we created a new website store – providing an outlet for fans to buy direct from us offering exclusive packages, downloads and merchandise and all our general releases. <br /> <br /> We’ve been busy!</span><br /> <br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=616 Thursday, September 27, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=616 HalfNoise - Release self-titled debut EP through Xtra Mile Recordings in UK & Europe <span style="font-weight: bold;">HALFNOISE</span> are set to release their self-titled debut EP thought <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings</span> (<span style="font-style: italic;">Frank Turner, Against Me!, Future of the Left…</span>) on <span style="font-weight: bold;">1st October 2012</span>.

HalfNoise released their first music (a music video for the track titled ‘Free The House’) via a low key Twitter post earlier this year, with this EP being the first official release since his departure of the multi-platinum selling band.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">Daniel James </span>and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jason Clark</span> worked with Zac on HalfNoise’s debut release with James acting as producer for the EP alongside Zac. Speaking of the recordings process Zac has said, &quot;<span style="font-style: italic;">This was an incredible experience for me, to not only record songs I'd been writing for years now, but to also work so closely with friends and musicians I respect and look up to.&quot;</span><br /> <br /> ‘HalfNoise’ is released though the band’s own label in the US and via Xtra Mile Recordings in the UK.

After six months of garnering praise for their second album 'Freaks Like Us', Straight Lines are saving the best for last – their new single 'Ring The Bells' is released 24th September, and they've announced their first European tour to celebrate.<br /> <br /> They are set to play ten dates with ska-punk troupe Sonic Boom Six in Switzerland, Austria, The Netherlands, and Germany. This is in addition to their September headline UK tour which takes in 21 cities around the country. Taking the monolithic choruses that have carried the album 'Freaks Like Us' to bigger audiences and now to Europe, Straight Lines will ensure their biggest tour to date will be wholly memorable. <br /> <br /> The dates come in support of 'Ring the Bells', one of the album's many highlights, and it looks like Straight Lines have no intention of slowing their pace as 2012 comes to a close. The single seethes with the same breathless energy and adrenaline-fuelled fist aloft choruses that drive the entire record. And as good as their recorded output proves to be, it's their live shows that have brought them growing attention from the public and the press alike. <br /> <br /> Kerrang! magazine said 'Freaks Like Us' possessed &quot;choruses of a size that require a forklift to lift them&quot; (4K’s) while Rock Sound said &quot;…Straight Lines should be the biggest band on the planet right now” (8/10). <br /> <br /> The band has toured with the likes of Funeral for a Friend, The Subways, Kids In Glass Houses, The Get Up Kids and Presidents of the USA. Their first European shows with Sonic Boom Six are listed below.<br /> <br /> WITH SONIC BOOM SIX:<br /> <br /> November<br /> 28th - Stuttgart, Germany @ Goldmarks<br /> 29th - Zug, Switzerland @ Salvanik<br /> 30th - Bulle, Switzerland @ Ebullition<br /> December<br /> 1st - Sursee, Switzerland @ <br /> Kulturwerk<br /> 2th - Munich, Germany @ Kranhalle<br /> 4th - Vienna, Austria @ The Arena <br /> 5th - Berlin, Germany @ Comet<br /> 6th - Hamburg, Germany @ Headcrash<br /> 7th - Cologne, Germany @ MTC<br /> 8th - Utrecht, Netherlands @ dBs <br /> 9th - Haarlem, Netherlands @ Patronaat<br /> &nbsp;<br /> HEADLINE TOUR:<br /> <br /> September<br /> Fri 21 Leicester Soundhouse<br /> Sat 22 Hull Fruit Space<br /> Sun 23 Carlisle The Brickyard<br /> Mon 24 Glasgow King Tuts<br /> Tue 25 Newcastle O2 Academy2<br /> Thu 27 Manchester Sound Control<br /> Fri 28 Leeds Cockpit 3<br /> Sat 29 Nottingham Red Room<br /> Sun 30 Derby The Vic<br /> October<br /> Mon 01 Birmingham The Rainbow<br /> Tue 02 Norwich Waterfront Studio<br /> Thu 04 Kingston New Slang<br /> Fri 05 Brighton The Hydrant<br /> Sat 06 Southampton Joiners<br /> Sun 07 Exeter Cavern<br /> Wed 10 Bristol Thekla<br /> Thu 11 Oxford Jericho<br /> Fri 12 Milton Keynes<br /> Crauford Arms<br /> Sat 13 Reading Face Bar<br /> Mon 15 London Barfly<br /> Tue 16 Cardiff CF10<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Tickets Available Online: kililive.com | artistticket.com | alt-tickets.co.uk<br /> gigsinscotland.com | 24hr Booking Line: 0844 871 8820<br /> <br /> <p style="margin: 0px;

<br /> With the help of Guignol rhythm section John Bollinger (drums) and George Rush (bass, tuba) and guests including Ezra Kire (Leftover Crack, Morning Glory), ‘Do The Struggle’ stitches together the anthemic Pogues-meets-Arcade Fire of ‘The Hearts Of Boston’;the Orson Welles-quoting pop-punk of ‘Frankie Stubbs' Tears’; the gorgeous country ballad ‘Take No Prisoners’; the showstopping orchestral march ‘Joy’and the Smithsian jukebox weepie ‘Did Your Broken Heart Make You Who You Are?’ which will be the single preceding the album release out on 30th July 2012.<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> Currently on a worldwide tour including a month of shows along the Trans-Siberian Railroad, in Mongolia, and in Beijing; Nicolay will be making festival and headlining appearances in the UK in August.

He’s been a member of cabaret-punk circus World/Inferno Friendship Society, world’s best bar band the Hold Steady, Balkan-jazz carnies Guignol, founded the outlaw orchestra Anti-Social Music, was a touring member of agit-punks Against Me!; and recorded or performed with everyone from Leftover Crack to Bruce Springsteen. <br /> <br /> Praise for previous album ‘Luck and Courage’:<br /> “Sprawling but fleet-footed…its execution is beguiling. Every bit as fascinating as its title.” <br /> – 4/5 Q Magazine<br /> “The sorrowful storytelling of Franz Nicolay may be unmatched.

Next on the agenda for Mull Historical Society – singer-songwriter Colin MacIntyre – is a number of major festival dates and the <span style="font-weight: bold;">August 20th</span> release of the new single <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Must You Make Eyes At Me Now’ </span>on <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings.</span><br /> <br /> Produced by the Grammy-winning Dom Morley (Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Grinderman) and taken from ‘City Awakenings’, ‘Must You Make Eyes At Me Now’ combines MacIntyre’s innate ability to fuse upbeat power-pop with yearning, melancholic lyrical themes.<br /> <br /> Mull Historical Society recently returned to the stage with a show at Glasgow’s King Tuts which earned the praise of The Herald and BBC Scotland. Mull’s current touring schedule is as follows:<br /> <br /> August<br /> <br /> 18th – V Festival<br /> 19th – V Festival<br /> <br /> ‘City Awakenings’ features ten MacIntyre compositions which offer a tribute to Glasgow, London and New York; the three cities which have most influenced the musician as an islander abroad. MacIntyre also co-produced the album closer ‘Thameslink (London's Burning)’, which he first performed on acoustic guitar at his father’s funeral (his father’s death inspired ‘Loss’).<br /> <br /> “Cities have been an explosion of the senses to me,” says MacIntyre. “The songs are breezy pop, some are widescreen things, and some are more minimalist, punchy tales of finding yourself in the city, leaving them, arriving in them, burning them, living in them, and what it’s like for a child to see one of them for the first time. I remember that. They are mostly upbeat songs about people living their lives.&quot;<br /> <br /> MacIntyre is currently in the process of making some unique plans for Mull Historical Society to conclude 2012 with. Further information on those plans will be announced as they’re confirmed.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.mullhistoricalsociety.com" target="_self">www.mullhistoricalsociety.com</a><br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/colinmacintyremull" target="_self">www.facebook.com/colinmacintyremull</a><br /> <a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com%20" target="_self">www.xtramilerecordings.com </a><br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=589 Tuesday, August 07, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=589 Frank Turner - Plays the biggest show on Earth! It is with enormous pleasure and pride that we announce Frank Turner and an extended version of his band the Sleeping Souls – including label mates Jim Lockey, Ben Marwood and Emily Barker - will play the biggest show on Earth tonight when they perform at the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.<br /> <br /> Hand-picked by the Artistic Director for the ceremony Danny Boyle, Frank has been asked to play three songs as part of the event to an estimated audience of almost 200,000 people in the stadium over 2 nights of rehearsals and opening night itself as well as the staggering 25 million viewers expected on the BBC.<br /> <br /> Frank says: “Being asked to play the Opening Ceremony was something I never imagined was going to happen in my wildest most feverish dreams; but the fact that Danny Boyle asked me personally, as a fan, convinced me to do it. It's a pretty terrifying prospect, but I'm secretly pretty happy to be part of it, it's a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”<br /> <br /> Also this year Frank is releasing his Live At Wembley DVD on 3rd September 2012. This fantastic DVD features Frank’s triumphant headline show at Wembley Arena on 13th April in full as well as a bonus disc that includes: ‘I Still Believe’ – a documentary charting life on the road with Frank Turner, as he tours all over the world in the run up to the Wembley show; Beans On Toast’s Road To Wembley – a shorter documentary filmed by Frank following Beans On Toast on the day he supports Frank at Wembley; and promo videos for all the singles taken from current album England Keep My Bones, including current single ‘If Ever I Stray’.<br /> <br /> England Keep My Bones, Frank’s fourth studio album, entered the official album charts at Number 12 when it was released in June 2011 and has since been certified silver with sales toppling over 60,000. On 3rd September the deluxe edition of the album (which included the 3 extra tracks ‘A Song For Eva Mae’, ‘Wanderlust’ and ‘Balthazar, Impresario’) will be re-packaged to include a further extra track – ‘Sailor’s Boots’ plus the Frank Turner: Live From Wembley performance DVD.<br /> <br /> http://frank-turner.com/blog/upcoming-gigs/<br /> <br /> Reviews from Wembley Arena:<br /> “This is a victory for doing things the honest way. The 12,000 people here are those who lent him their ears, their floors to sleep on, and their rooms to play to. Tonight feels like a celebration.” 5/5 Kerrang!<br /> <br /> “Frank Turner gets tattooed, drags his mum onstage and smashes his big night. A one-off? Nope – he’s going all the way to the stadium across the road…” NME<br /> “…he may yet prove to be an English Bruce Springsteen. Today Wembley, tomorrow the world.” 4/5 Times<br /> <br /> “It is with this sense of unity that Turner and his lively backing band, The Sleeping Souls, managed to make a giant cavern of 12,000 people feel like an intimate gig….there’s no doubt that sheer demand will mean he’ll be back in an arena before too long.” 4/5 Telegraph<br /> <br /> “Turner opened his set with ‘Eulogy’ which contains the lyric ‘Not everyone can be Freddy Mercury’. But blasting out a cover of Queen’s ‘Somebody To Love’ to a bellowing audience who couldn’t have been more appreciative, Turner’s nice guys routine seems to suggest that he can.” 4/5 Independent<br /> <br /> “Not everyone can be, Freddie Mercury&quot; he sang in opener Eulogy, but on the strength of this gig, it’s only the beginning of Turner’s career as a stadium star.” Sunday Mirror<br /> <br /> &quot;...the connection between himself and the fans can make a big show feel nearly as intimate as a club gig.&quot; 4/5 Guardian<br /> <br /> Reviews of ‘England Keep My Bones’:<br /> “Turner proves himself an accomplished and impassioned storyteller.

The band can also announce a month long (almost) November headline tour, starting on November the 2nd in Nottingham and ending on November 24th in Newport, AND the forthcoming single from the album will be 'Virus', being released September 17th. <br /> &nbsp;<br /> Laila K, vocalist and front woman from SB6, on both the new album and signing to Xtra Mile Recordings; “Not only is ‘Sonic Boom Six’ like the start of a new day for SB6, but I truly believe it’s the best record we’ve ever made. The whole purpose of the album was to get our ethos and message out in a way that is inclusive and inviting to everyday people. We don’t want to be preaching to the converted any more, we actually want to change minds and viewpoints, not confirm what people already know. I think that’s exactly why we’re so excited about working with Xtra Mile. Not only are some of our favorite artists on there but they’ve actually proven with Frank Turner that they can make an artist accessible and popular within the public eye while retaining the core message and philosophy that the artist came into the industry with. That’s something that is vital to us, so it’s a perfect fit!”<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Produced and mixed by Peter Miles (Futures, We Are The Ocean, The King Blues), ‘Sonic Boom Six’ builds on the band's previous reputation for progressive, genre-hopping punk rock, by adding contemporary electronica, crushing rock riffs, huge vocal hooks and anthemic song-writing to the mix. It’s a HUGE step forward in every aspect for the band, and one that will rightfully establish them as one of the most exciting new/old prospects in the UK. ‘Sonic Boom Six’ also features the vocal talents of SB6 friends and allies Jimbo Baxter (Population, ex-Freaks Union) Kat Marsh (Lionface, ex-The King Blues), Mike Attack (Rat Attack) and the debut recorded performance of Kerrang! 105.2 DJ Matt Stocks, as the emergency radio broadcaster on ‘S.O.S (State of Shock)’.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> A FULL list of SB6 November UK headline dates are:<br /> Friday 02-Nov – Nottingham, Rock City Basement<br /> Saturday 03-Nov – Leicester, Soundhouse<br /> Sunday 04-Nov – Manchester, Academy 3<br /> Monday 05-Nov – Leeds, Cockpit 2<br /> Tuesday 06-Nov – Glasgow, King Tut's Wah Wah Hut<br /> Thursday 08-Nov – Hull, Welly<br /> Friday 09-Nov – Bedford, Esquires<br /> Saturday 10-Nov – Cheltenham, Frog &amp; Fiddle<br /> Monday 12-Nov – Bristol, The Croft<br /> Tuesday 13-Nov – Exeter, Cavern&nbsp; <br /> Thursday 15-Nov - Plymouth The White Rabbit<br /> Friday 16-Nov - Truro B-Side, Bunters<br /> Saturday 17-Nov – Andover, The George<br /> Sunday 18-Nov – Portsmouth, Wedgewood Rooms<br /> Tuesday 20-Nov – Norwich, Waterfront (Upstairs)<br /> Wednesday 21-Nov - London, The Borderline<br /> Thursday 22-Nov – Birmingham, O2 Academy 3<br /> Friday 23-Nov – Newcastle, O2 Academy 2<br /> Saturday 24-Nov – Newport, Meze Lounge<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Ticket link is <a href="http://www.artistticket.com/link/?s=Sonic+Boom+Six" target="_blank">http://www.artistticket.com/link/?s=Sonic+Boom+Six</a><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Live wise, SB6 have already toured the UK, Europe and the US multiple times in the last few years, firmly establishing themselves as a headline act.

The track will be available to download through iTunes.</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: left;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: left;">Inspired by duets such as Gram Parsons &amp; Emmylou Harris, Neil Young &amp; Nicolette Larson, Nancy Sinatra &amp; Lee Hazelwood as well as more traditional songs as collected by archivists Alan Lomax or Harry Smith, and contemporary songs such as Johnny Cash's ‘Delia's Gone’ or ‘Where the Wild Roses Grow’ by Nick Cave and Kylie; Emily has teamed up with friend and musical peer Frank Turner, to create a wickedly dark murder ballad with a strong male and female duet at its core. </p><br /> Released on limited edition White 7” vinyl, the single is backed with Emily Barker’s track ‘Nostalgia’ which features as the theme tune to Kenneth Brannagh’s television series Wallander which won her and the composer Martin Phipps a BAFTA and Royal Television Society Award for best soundtrack. <br /> Also accompanying the single is a stunning vintage style black and white silent film video which sees Emily and her band in fine form breaking Frank’s heart and then attempting to bury him in the ground. <br /> <br /> <iframe width="420" height="315" frameborder="0" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/aBOBJCZwjGw" allowfullscreen=""></iframe><br /> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><br /> </p>You can see Emily Barker &amp; The Red Clay Halo performing at a number of summer festivals across the UK as well as a headline show at the beautiful Union Chapel venue in London.<br /> <br /> JULY<br /> 15 Larmer Tree Festival, nr Salisbury<br /> 22 Folk by the Oak, Hatfield House<br /> 27 Camp Bestival, Lulworth Castle, Dorset<br /> AUGUST<br /> 17 Beautiful Days, nr Fairmile, Devon<br /> 23 Castle Park Old Town Festival, Leicester<br /> 25 Solfest, Cumbria<br /> 26 Towersey Festival, Towersey, Oxfordshire<br /> SEPTEMBER<br /> 9 Bestival, Isle of Wight<br /> NOVEMBER<br /> 21 Union Chapel, London<br /> <br /> Emily and her band first met Frank way back in 2006 when they shared a stage at Brixton’s Windmill. Shortly after this meeting, Frank invited Emily to do a solo support slot on a UK tour with him and his band The Sleeping Souls. It was on this tour that Emily and Frank first performed Fields of June as a duet during Emily's set. The friendship that was formed has seen Emily &amp; The Red Clay Halo record on Frank's albums, support him on tours of the UK and Europe, and perform live with Frank and The Sleeping Souls on some of their biggest shows to date including Frank’s sold out Wembley Arena show in April 2012.<br /> <br /> Emily Barker &amp; The Red Clay Halo have recorded and released three albums together, Photos.Fires.Fables (2007), Despite The Snow (2009) and Almanac (2011), and have just completed the recording of a fourth album, due for release early in 2013.<br /> <br /> “This is a dream of a record.

An enormous-sounding, stadium-filling collection of heavy rock songs, ‘Colonel Blood’ is packed with belting riffs, brutal rhythmic attacks and sing along choruses. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, with Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Foo Fighters, Danzig) together they’ve created a straight-up rock record that delivers punch after punch of tuneful, energetic, upbeat and damn right catchy songs.<br /> <br /> Lead guitarist and vocalist Cahir O’Doherty explains: <span style="font-style: italic;">“With this new record we really focused on the songs, we're all influenced by early 90's American rock so making this record we tried to give that 90's sound a modern makeover. It was great working with Nick Raskulinecz in Nashville, he really got what we were trying to do and helped us make this record sound huge.”</span><br /> <br /> <object height="220" width="220"> <param name="movie" value="https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Fplaylists%2F2192067%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-KLSXi&amp;auto_play=false&amp;player_type=artwork&amp;color=4d00ff"></param> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param> <embed allowscriptaccess="always" height="220" src="https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Fplaylists%2F2192067%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-KLSXi&amp;auto_play=false&amp;player_type=artwork&amp;color=4d00ff" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="220"></embed> </object> <br /> Already this year the band have toured with revered metal pioneers Helmet, as well as completing their own UK headline tour and with the new album poised and ready to be unveiled, it’s going to be a very exciting year for this hard working trio from Derry.<br /> <br /> Fighting With Wire are Rock Sound magazine’s ’Band Of The Week’ you can read the feature and listen to ‘Waiting on a Way to Believe’ here: <a href="http://bit.ly/Nlmzso%20" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/Nlmzso </a><br /> <br /> Press reviews for MAN VS MONSTER<br /> <br /> “absolutely phenomenal from the start to the end, a flawless modern rock record…” BBC Radio 1 Zane <br /> <br /> &quot;are living proof that despite the gazillions already used you can still come up with a fucking great band name if you try.&nbsp; More importantly the music matches; vicious and stinging in parts but applied with dexterity and finesse.&quot;&nbsp; KERRANG! <br /> <br /> &quot;these three guys make enough noise to drown out an Armageddon-scale nuclear attack... against a seething mass of generic and unoriginal rock and indie bands.&quot; Rocksound <br /> <br /> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com%20" target="_blank">www.xtramilerecordings.com </a></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.fightingwithwire.co.uk" target="_blank">www.fightingwithwire.co.uk</a></p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=574 Wednesday, July 11, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=574 Xtra Mile Television at 2000Trees Festival Hello from Xtra Mile HQ,<br /> <br /> We are very excited to be heading to one of our favourite festivals <span style="font-weight: bold;">2000Trees</span> from the <span style="font-weight: bold;">12th to the 14th July</span> this year: <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.twothousandtreesfestival.co.uk" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight: bold;">http://www.twothousandtreesfestival.co.uk</span></a><br /> <br /> Not least because we are going to be launching <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Television</span> in the coming weeks and we have <span style="font-weight: bold;">SEVEN Xtra Mile acts</span> playing the festival.&nbsp; In celebration of this we are going to be filming exclusive interviews, acoustic sessions, never seen before collaboration, backstage footage as well as key moments from all the bands’ sets.<br /> <br /> And here’s where you come in if you fancy it….<br /> <br /> During the interviews we’re going to ask some of your questions too, tell us what you’d like to know about our bands.<br /> <br /> Are there any acts or songs you’d love to see our bands collaborate on?

He’s been a member of cabaret-punk circus World/Inferno Friendship Society, world’s best bar band the Hold Steady, Balkan-jazz carnies Guignol, founded the outlaw orchestra Anti-Social Music, was a touring member of agit-punks Against Me!; and recorded or performed with everyone from Leftover Crack to Bruce Springsteen. <br /> <br /> Praise for previous album ‘Luck and Courage’:<br /> “Sprawling but fleet-footed…its execution is beguiling. Every bit as fascinating as its title.” <br /> – 4/5 Q Magazine<br /> “The sorrowful storytelling of Franz Nicolay may be unmatched.

Speaking of the new partnership Wiebe says:<br /> <br /> “The Riverboat Gamblers are proud to announce that we have dipped a feather in ink and signed with the UK based label Xtra Mile.&nbsp; The dark sounds of ‘The Wolf You Feed’ will be washing up upon the shores across the Atlantic in June. We are quite proud to be a part of the impressive roster and hope to spend much more time overseas delivering the greatest cultural exchange we have to offer in our loud loud musics.”<br /> <br /> Teaming up with Grammy-Award winning engineer Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Cat Power) they set out to create a darker record that still had lots of hooks; a grittier, less polished sound to get across the true spirit of the band. Just a listen to the first fifteen seconds of the Hives-worthy opener ‘Good Veins’ shows that the band achieved their goal largely because they weren’t trying to make a record that fits into today’s musical landscape. <br /> <br /> The Wolf You Feed perfectly captures the era when punk rock and old rock ‘n’ roll converged “edgy and intense but still catchy so that people could dance to it if they wanted to” explains Wiebe. But, there’s also a remarkable amount of variance inherent in these songs. From the sweetly scathing anthem ‘Bite Your Tongue’ to the piano-driven, Murder City Devils-esque death march of ‘Gallows Bird’ and classic Alice Cooper-esque feel of ‘Loser Neck’, the album juxtaposes all of these influences into something that’s got its roots in the past yet still sounds remarkably relevant. Additionally the album features contributions from Mark Ryan (Marked Men, Mind Spiders) and Sean Kirkpatrick (The Paper Chase) each of whom help the band expand their sound even further. <br /> <br /> The album release coincides with a few dates in Germany supporting punk heavyweights Flogging Molly.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> JUNE<br /> 25 Munster Skater’s Palace<br /> 26 Berlin Zitadelle<br /> 28 Frankfurt Batschkapp<br /> 29 Nurnberg Burg Abenberg<br /> JULY<br /> 2 Bremen Schlachthof<br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=547 Thursday, May 31, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=547 The Xcerts - Confirmed for Young Guns European Tour and Kevin Devine & Cursive supports <span style="font-weight: bold;">THE XCERTS</span> have just received the rather amazing news that they will be supporting <span style="font-weight: bold;">Young Guns</span> on their forthcoming European tour, becoming friends when the band supported them on their UK tour at the end of 2011.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> The band were recently due to support Guns N’ Roses on their forthcoming UK arena shows but have been forced to pull out from the bill as Guns N’ Roses are now only able to run with one support band due to ‘logistical reasons’. Never a band to sit around feeling sorry for themselves The Xcerts have instead gone ahead and secured a show (when they would have been playing London’s O2 Arena with with Guns N’ Roses) with two of the their favourite artists <span style="font-weight: bold;">Kevin Devine</span> and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Cursive</span>. Please see dates below.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The Xcerts second album ‘Scatterbrain’ has already taken the band on an incredible journey. In the albums short lifespan the band have been on several headline tours with a fan base that grows at every show; performed in Europe for the first time where their album is also released; been played by most major national radio stations (Radio 1, Kerrang! radio…) and TV channels (Kerrang TV, Scuzz…) and toured with many of their favourite bands (Manchester Orchestra, Biffy Clyro, Taking Back Sunday, Brand New...). Not only that, but the band flew out to New York to record it with their favourite producer Mike Sapone!<br /> <br /> Fri-June-1 Brighton, Audio with Kevin Devine &amp; Cursive<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">YOUNG GUNS EUROPEAN TOUR</span>:<br /> <br /> Fri-Oct-19 Belgium, Antwerp, Trix<br /> Sat-Oct-20 Netherlands, Eindhoven, Dynamo<br /> Sun-Oct-21France, Paris, La Scene Bastille&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> Sat-Oct-27 Switzerland, Geneva,Le Contremps<br /> Sun-Oct-28 Germany, München, 59 to 1<br /> Tue-Oct-30 Germany, Berlin, C-Club<br /> Wed-Oct-31 Germany, Hamburg, Mephisto<br /> Thu-Nov-1 Germany, Koln, Luxor<br /> Fri-Nov-2 Germany,&nbsp; Lingen, Alter Schlachthof<br /> Sat-Nov-3 Germany, Kaiserslautern, Kammgarn<br /> Mon-Nov-5, Italy, Roma, Traffic<br /> Tue-Nov-6 Italy, Bolzano, RnRoll Arena<br /> Fri-Nov-9 Czech, Prague, Rock Café<br /> Sat-Nov-10, Poland, Poznan, Minoga<br /> Sun-Nov-11 Poland, Warsaw, Hydrozagadka<br /> Tue-Nov-13 Germany, Leipzig, Conne Island<br /> Wed-Nov-14 Germany, Stuttgart, Juha West<br /> Thu-Nov-15 Swiss, Zurich, Dynamo<br /> Fri-Nov-16 Netherlands, Utrecht, Tivoli De Helling<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.thexcertsband.com" target="_blank">www.thexcertsband.com</a></p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.twitter.com/thexcerts" target="_self">www.twitter.com/thexcerts</a> - <a href="http://www.facebook.com/thexcerts" target="_blank">www.facebook.com/thexcerts</a> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com" target="_blank">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a> </p><br /> &nbsp;‘Scatterbrain’ is out now through Xtra Mile Recordings.

Constituting 49.8 minutes of singing, shouting, slinking, smashing and (at times) sobbing, the album is the best thing the band have put their name to in this or any other dimension, a fact which is not open to debate.</p><br /> Recently expanded to a four-piece, initially as a bet, the band originally conceived the record as a Broadway musical based on the recent British phone-hacking scandal but were forced to abandon this idea due to budgetary restrictions. This is not a joke. After writing hundreds of songs fifteen were recorded and placed into an order deliberately selected to exhibit the full dynamic range of the experience, a gift which will be lost to anybody who regularly utilitises the shuffle function on their mp3 player.<br /> <br /> From the upcoming summer of sport ('failed olympic bid') to the creative bankruptcy of the movie industry ('robocop 4 - fuck off robocop'), urban outfitted riots ('city of exploded children') and the gigantic rumbling mediocrity of celebrity culture ('notes on achieving orbit'), 'the plot against common sense' is a mostly very loud condemnation of many things, some of which are very easy targets indeed.<br /> <br /> Recent single ‘sheena is a t-shirt salesman’ is currently being blasted out across the airways played and championed by Radio 1’s Daniel P Carter, Huw Stephens as well as XFM, 6Music and Kerrang!

This began a roller-coaster 4 year journey through the American music industry, from the highs of recording with legendary producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones, Danzig...) to the frustration of the album ultimately being shelved. <br /> <br /> Years of legal limbo followed with the band existing on the brink of collapse, until they finally extricated themselves from the mess - crucially securing ownership of their recordings in the process. Disillusioned with the music business and with no alternative in sight, the band had decided to release album themselves.<br /> <br /> However, having been blown away by the album, and been long-time fans of Fighting With Wire; Xtra Mile have stepped in and offered to give the band the support it needs to give this album the full and proper release it deserves throughout the UK, Europe and North America.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Speaking of the whole experience, lead vocalist <span style="font-weight: bold;">Cahir O'Doherty</span> says, <span style="font-style: italic;">“We finished recording our 2nd album in summer 2010 in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz, we were so excited for people to hear it, but unfortunately the label went silent on us.&nbsp; A year and a half later we parted ways but got our record back, we were really back at square one again. But we had this record which we were proud of so we thought we'd put it out ourselves and give it one last tour before calling it a day. Then we got a call from Xtra Mile and a chance to put this record out properly and give it the release it deserves. We are excited again for the first time in two years, this is a label we have always admired and it gives us a chance for a fresh start for Fighting With Wire.

That, you suspect is where the 29-year-old from Hampshire would be happy to stay. His fans, however are having none of it.” Times 4/5<br /> “…the former Million Dead frontman turned rabble rousing solo singer songwriter inspires overhead handclaps and massed chants to every single song, and a phenomenal atmosphere of togetherness and unity.” Independent on Sunday <br /> <br /> Reviews of ‘England Keep My Bones’: <br /> “Turner proves himself an accomplished and impassioned storyteller.

Radio – these dates will please fans no end who have been patiently waiting for the band to tour again. <br /> <br /> Full dates are as follows:<br /> &nbsp;<br /> JUNE<br /> 1 Diksmuide, 4AD Belgium<br /> 2 Paris: La Maroquinerie, France<br /> 3 Lille, La Peniche, France<br /> 5 Brussels, VK, Belgium<br /> 7 Cheltenham, Frog and Fiddle (2000 Trees &quot;launch&quot; party)<br /> 8 Nottingham, Bodega<br /> 9 Manchester, Deaf Institute<br /> 10 Newcastle, Academy 2<br /> 11 Glasgow, King Tuts<br /> 13 Brighton, The Haunt<br /> 14 London, XOYO<br /> JULY&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> 14 2000 Trees Festival, Cheltenham <br /> 21 Sheffield Tramlines Festival<br /> 29 Off The Cuff Festival&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> AUGUST&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> 5 Matlock YNOT Festival<br /> 9 Croatia, Zagreb Terraneo Festival<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The shows coincide with the release of the band’s hotly anticipated album ‘the plot against common sense', which is to be released on 11th June in the UK and Europe and 12th June in the USA. Constituting 49.8 minutes of singing, shouting, slinking, smashing and (at times) sobbing, the album is the best thing the band have put their name to in this or any other dimension, a fact which is not open to debate.<br /> <br /> “It’s like a lyrical spade to the face, digging up and questioning the commercial reality of life… musically bloody good and the video’s great” - Ed Stagg at BBC Leicester<br /> <br /> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.futureoftheleft.net" target="_blank">www.futureoftheleft.net</a>&nbsp; <a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com" target="_self">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a> </p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=500 Thursday, April 12, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=500 Xtra Mile Recordings Launches In North America!

<br /> We are fully charged to continue growing the band on the American side of the pond.”</span><br /> <br /> Kenny Weagly from ILG adds: <span style="font-style: italic;">“Everyone here at ILG is excited to have Xtra Mile join our family of labels.&nbsp; We respect what Charlie Caplowe and Xtra Mile have been building in the UK, and are looking forward to helping them continue to grow the label and their associated artists in North America.”</span><br /> <br /> Born from a passion for music and a strong DIY ethic, Xtra Mile Recordings started in 2003 to release albums by post-hardcore band Million Dead and rock outfit Reuben.&nbsp; After receiving critical acclaim for both albums, the label slowly began to grow and year on year the roster expanded, playing host to an eclectic array of emerging and established acts, that include Frank Turner, The Xcerts, Crazy Arm, Far, I Am The Avalanche, Against Me!, Future Of The Left, Dave Hause, Jim Lockey &amp; The Solemn Sun, Fighting Fiction and Straight Lines plus many more. <br /> <br /> Look out for new releases in North America by The Xcerts, Crazy Arm, Mull Historical Society and Sophie Madeleine in the coming months.<br /> <br /> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: center;"><a href="http://%20www.xtramilerecordings.com" target="_blank"><span style="font-weight: bold;">http:// www.xtramilerecordings.com</span></a></p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=499 Wednesday, April 11, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=499 Dave Hause - tour dates <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;"><br /> </p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">DAVE HAUSE</p> <p style="margin: 0px; text-align: justify;">- Heads out on tour with Alkaline Trio -</p>&nbsp;<br /> Having wowed crowds with his passionate and uplifting performances on the first European Revival Tour, The Loved Ones vocalist/guitarist Dave Hause returns for a run of shows with good friends Alkaline Trio. <br /> With upcoming dates throughout the UK as well as Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands, Dave Hause’s army of followers is set to get even bigger!<br /> <br /> Dates are as follows:<br /> April<br /> 12 T'was The Night Before Wembley @ Barfly London, <br /> 14 Zwölfzehn, Stuttgart, Germany<br /> 15 FZW Bar, Dortmund, Germany<br /> 16 Molotow, Hamburg, Germany<br /> 17 SCHLACHTHOF, Wiesbaden, Germany<br /> 19 Vortex Siegen, Germany<br /> 20 Heimat &amp; Hafen, Bielefeld, Germany<br /> 22 Tower Bremen, Germany<br /> 23 Gebäude 9, Cologne, Germany<br /> 24 Exzellenzhaus e.V, Trier, Germany<br /> 25 59:1, Munich, Germany<br /> 26 General Musik Direktion (Headline Show) Graz, Austria<br /> 27 Monster Bash Berlin, Germany<br /> 28 Pirate Satellite Festival Stuttgart, Germany<br /> 29 Groezrock Meerhout, Belgium<br /> 30 Queensday Festival 12, Venlo, Netherlands<br /> May <br /> 01 Pyramid, Portsmouth<br /> 02 The Leadmill, Sheffield<br /> 03 Empire, Middlesbrough<br /> 04 Leeds Metropolitan University, Leeds<br /> 05 Academy, Manchester<br /> 07 HMV Picture House, Edinburgh<br /> 08 Kasbah, Coventry<br /> 09 Waterfront, Norwich<br /> 10 Electric Ballroom London<br /> 11 The Black Heart, London<br /> 12 Barfly, London<br /> 13 University SU Cardiff<br /> 14 Lemon Grove, Exeter<br /> 15 The Junction, Cambridge<br /> 17 Soundcity, Liverpool<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Dave Hause’s debut solo album ‘Resolutions’ was released on Xtra Mile Recordings in October 2011.&nbsp; Hause, along with a group of friends and family he dubbed The Empty Bottles Band, put together a well-crafted rock album that defies classification.&nbsp; Recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Pete Steinkopf (of The Bouncing Souls), ‘Resolutions’ showcases Hause’s songwriting talents and his many influences ranging from Patty Griffin to Paul Westerberg.<br /> <br /> Dave Hause played his first solo shows in 2009 and has since shared the stage with a wide variety of artists including Bob Mould, AFI, Frank Turner, Tim Barry (Avail), Jim Ward (At The Drive-In, Sparta), Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Guns &amp; Roses), Franz Nicolay, Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music) and Brian Fallon (Gaslight Anthem). <br /> <br /> www.davehause.com &amp; www.xtramilerecordings.com <br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=496 Tuesday, April 10, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=496 Crazy Arm - Record Store Day release! New single <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Little Boats /‘All Butchers Are Men’ r</span>eleased<span style="font-weight: bold;"> 21st April 2012</span><br /> (to coincide with RecordStore Day)<br /> Formats: limited edition 7” vinyl<br /> <br /> Devonian roots-punk ensemble, <span style="font-weight: bold;">Crazy Arm,</span> release their new single<span style="font-weight: bold;"> ‘Little Boats / ‘All Butchers Are Men’ </span>to coincide with Record Store Day (21st April). The songis the second to be released from their sophomore album ‘Union City Breath’.The single will be released on limited edition 7” vinyl via Household NameRecords.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Little Boats’ </span>is apaean to everyday survival. Featuring Vicky Butterfield on joint vocals, it’s aconfession of hopelessness with a belief in redemption, maybe even revolution.It also posits the idea that there is most probably no God but most definitelyeach other. The b-side, ‘All Butchers Are Men’, is one of the band’searliest unreleased songs: a pro-feminist missive that balks at outdatedsymbols of male identity.<br /> <br /> -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">'Union City Breath',</span> was released in Octoberlast year. Much like its predecessor, 'Born To Ruin', it has been very wellreceived nationwide and throughout mainland Europeby fans and critics alike. Produced and engineered by Peter Miles (The KingBlues, The Computers, Sonic Boom Six), the album is a triumph of&nbsp; punk rock energy, alt. country vitality andrabble-rousing honesty.<br /> <br /> Not easy to categorise, and all the better forit, Crazy Arm's sound is an accumulation of decades of influence andinspiration: rooted in hardcore/punk, ‘60s protest folk/country andSpringsteen-esque classic rock’n’roll. They combine this with a grass-rootspolitical overview that embraces anti-war, anti-fascist and pro-communityactivism.<br /> <br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">April dates<br /> 10th – Cavern, Exeter(with Muncie Girls + Spitting Blood) Amnesty benefit<br /> 12th – Barfly, London(with Dave Hause + Jim Lockey + Fighting Fiction)<br /> 19th – The Unit, Southampton (with Drawings)<br /> 20th – Harry’s Bar, Stoke<br /> 21st – Cockpit 3, Leeds (with Sounds Of Swami +Bad Ideas)<br /> 22nd – Hit The Deck Festival, Nottingham<br /> 23rd – Old Blue Last, London (with The Dissociates + AltTrack)</span><br /> <br /> Reviews for 'Union CityBreath':<br /> 'Blisters with energy' – KKKK Kerrang!<br /> 'You need Crazy Arm' – 5/5 Big Cheese<br /> 'A triumph from start to finish' – 9/10 Punktastic<br /> 'Delivered with a fired-up passion' – Rock Sound<br /> 'Never faltering from the pinnacle it attains from the off' – Punk News<br /> 'A patchwork blanket of musical bliss' – Room Thirteen<br /> 'This is the band to watch at the moment' – Rhythm Circus<br /> 'Supremely confident' – Sputnik Music<br /> 'Album of choice to represent Britain on the punk scene' – Alter The Press<br /> <br /> Contacts:<br /> website: www.facebook.com/thecrazyarm<br /> vinyl: www.householdnamerecords.net<br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=492 Tuesday, April 03, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=492 Dear Euros - Fighting Fiction dates! <p>Go and show them your support!!</p> <p>Saturday 7th April<br /> Prague, Czech - Cafe na pul cesty - 19.00-22.00<br /> Address:centrální park Pankrác, 140 00 Praha 4<br /> Price: N/A<br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/cafenapulcesty">http://www.facebook.com/cafenapulcesty</a></p> <p>German venue Iam waiting for venue info and FB group:<br /> Monday 9th April <br /> Nuremberg, Germany - Basement&nbsp; </p> <p>Thursday 12th April<br /> Split, Croatia - Klub Quasimodo - 22.00-2.00 <br /> Adress: GUNDULIĆEVA 26, 21000<br /> Price: 10 euros<br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/events/257552047668430/">http://www.facebook.com/events/257552047668430/</a></p> <p>Saturday 14th April<br /> Krsko, Slovenia - Pizdun Plac - 20.00<br /> Address: Kostanjek 1, 8270<br /> Price: 4 euros<br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/events/134430263349117/">http://www.facebook.com/events/134430263349117/</a></p> <p>Sunday 15th April<br /> Udine, Italy - Piper club - 20.45<br /> Price: N/A<br /> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/events/316016768453273/">http://www.facebook.com/events/316016768453273/</a> <br /> </p> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=489 Saturday, March 31, 2012 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=489 Frank Turner & The Xcerts 12" vinyl <p class="MsoNormal">Dear valued and treasured Xtra Mile customer,</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><br /> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Re: FRANK TURNER’s Sleep is For The Week and THE XCERTS ‘In The Cold Wind We Smile’ VINYL albums.</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><br /> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">We just wanted to explain the situation so as not to piss anyone off. &nbsp;We did initially offer these exclusively through Pledge Music and thank all of you who bought those albums from us in that scariest of times for the label.&nbsp; In the vinyl manufacturing world, there are minimum runs that we have to do in order to satisfy demand.&nbsp; &nbsp;However these runs are normally broken down into 100’s. This means that if, as an example, 261 people ordered an Xcerts or Frank Turner album, we would still have to manufacture a minimum of 300 vinyl albums, which is kind of what we ended up having to do.&nbsp; So rather than leave these lying around the warehouse gathering dust (or waiting for another riot….) we took the decision to sell these last few copies.&nbsp; I hope this makes sense and doesn’t leave those that did Pledge in a state of fury.

Coupled with a strong political ethic and a “play-till-you’re-dead” attitude ‘Death’ is an innovative and arresting record, crammed with hook-filled soaring harmonies, innovative rhythms and passionately honest lyrics.<br /><br />It also features the track ‘Warriors’ which the band made available for free late last year.<br /><br />In two short years these anarcho-anglo storytellers have incessantly toured the country, including as main support on Frank Turner’s February 2011 UK Tour plus shows alongside the likes of Mumford &amp; Sons, Dry the River, Johnny Flynn, Alessi’s Ark and Pete Doherty.

Much like its predecessor, 'Born To Ruin', it has been very well received nationwide and throughout mainland Europe by fans and critics alike.

The band will be appearing alongside Great Cynics and Smokey Bastard at most of the shows (dates below).<br /><br />Crazy Arm's second album 'Union City Breath' was released in October of this year. Much like its predecessor, 'Born To Ruin', it has been brilliantly received nationwide and throughout mainland Europe by fans and critics alike.

Not easy to categorise, and all the better for it, their sound is an accumulation of decades of influence and inspiration: rooted in hardcore/punk, ‘60s protest folk/country and Springsteen-esque rock’n’roll, combined with a grass-roots political overview that embraces anti-war, anti-fascist and pro-community activism.<br /><br />December tour dates:<br />14th – Joiners, Southampton (with Great Cynics + Smokey Bastard)<br />15th – Star & Garter, Manchester (with Above Them + Great Cynics + Smokey Bastard)<br />16th – 1 in 12 Club, Bradford (with Random Hand + Great Cynics + Smokey Bastard)<br />17th – Frog & Fiddle, Cheltenham (with Tall Ships + Jim Lockey + Talons)<br />18th – Windmill, London (with Above Them + Great Cynics + Smokey Bastard)<br />20th – The Maze, Nottingham (with Great Cynics + Smokey Bastard)<br /><br />Reviews for 'Union City Breath':<br />'Blisters with energy' – KKKK Kerrang!<br />'You need Crazy Arm' – 5/5 Big Cheese<br />'A triumph from start to finish' – 9/10 Punktastic<br />'Delivered with a fired-up passion' – Rock Sound<br />'Never faltering from the pinnacle it attains from the off' – Punk News<br />'A patchwork blanket of musical bliss' – Room Thirteen<br />'This is the band to watch at the moment' – Rhythm Circus<br />'Supremely confident' – Sputnik Music<br />'Album of choice to represent Britain on the punk scene' – Alter The Press<br /><br />Contacts:<br />website: www.facebook.com/thecrazyarm<br />bookings: aisha [at] oneinchbadge[dot]com<br />band email: johnsycash [at] yahoo[dot]co[dot]uk<br />PR: anthea [at] presscounselpr [dot]com<br />record label: www.xtramilerecordings.com http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=238 Wednesday, December 07, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=238 The Xcerts - Announce European tour with I Am The Avalanche, UK tour with Brand New & the re-release of ‘Scatterbrain' Having just returned from triumphant tours with Young Guns, Taking Back Sunday and Manchester Orchestra and the release of the ‘Slackerpop’ EP; THE XCERTS can now reveal their European tour with label mates I Am The Avalanche, UK support tour with Brand New, the re-release of their album 'Scatterbrain' with bonus tracks and the addition of a show at London's Borderline as part of their UK headline tour.<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.thexcertsband.com/" title="_DSC5514 by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4131/5050186833_d44eeb8451_m.jpg" alt="_DSC5514" height="160" width="240" /></a></div><br />The Xcerts single ‘Slackerpop’ has recently enjoyed great support from television (Kerrang TV, Scuzz…) and radio (Radio 1, XFM…), securing daytime Radio 1 support thanks to Fearne Cotton.

In 1999 the band released ‘Rides’ (George Drakoulias) and in the same year the band saw off the likes of Oasis and Pulp to win the Music Industry’s Soccer Six competition. Rides was followed by the poppier sounding ‘Getaway’ produced by Al Clay (Pixies, Stereophonics) in 2000 which was most notable for the single ‘Set The Record Straight’. Always a favourite at shows and Festivals alike, the band made many high profile appearances during this period, including Glastonbury and Reading festivals.<br />This incredible box set compiles all these phenomenal successes and lovingly documents the story of how West Country’s finest sons went from fledgling band to one of the best loved rock acts of the nineties.<br /><br />For more information please contact:<br />Charlie, Dani, Dan and Anthea - 0207 7929400 - <a href="mailto:info@presscounselpr.com">info@presscounselpr.com</a><br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.metropolis-group.co.uk"><span style="font-weight: bold;">www.metropolis-group.co.uk</span><br /></a></div><br /> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=240 Friday, November 18, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=240 Beans On Toast - Pre-order 'Trying To Tell The Truth' <span style="font-weight: bold;">Beans On Toast</span>'s <span style="font-weight: bold;">Frank Turner</span> produced third studio album 'Trying To Tell The Truth' is released on 1st December - Bean's birthday!<br /><br />Pre-order your copy now using any of the links below to get it on the day of release!<br /><br /><a href="http://bit.ly/tk6het">iTunes</a><br /><a href="http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=280;-1;-1;-1;-1&amp;sku=442531">HMV.com</a><br /><a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trying-Tell-Truth-Beans-Toast/dp/B0060E9DY4/ref=sr_1_4?s=music&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1320425011&amp;sr=1-4">Amazon</a><br /><a href="http://www.play.com/Music/CD/4-/25656793/Trying-To-Tell-The-Truth/Product.html?searchtype=allproducts&amp;searchsource=0&amp;searchstring=beans+on+toast+trying&amp;urlrefer=search">Play</a><br /><a href="http://www.7digital.com/artists/beans-on-toast/trying-to-tell-the-truth/">7 Digital</a><br /><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com">Xtra Mile Recordings</a><br /><br />Catch Beans On Toast on tour at any of the following venues in December:<br /><br />1 Album Launch - The Yard - London<br />2 The Croft - Bristol<br />4 The Hope - Brighton<br />5 Moles - Bath<br />7 Gwdihw Cafe - Cardiff<br />10 The Swan - Kidderminster<br />12 Rescue Rooms - Nottingham<br />13 Royal Cellers - Leeds<br />14 The Basement - York<br />15 Hooga – Essex http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=241 Thursday, November 17, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=241 Chris T-T to tour in November & December with Franz Nicolay <div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2060/2926413505_0fd12a27c6_m.jpg" alt="dan banda lee" height="160" width="240" /><br /><div style="text-align: left;">The inspirational and prolific folk hero Chris T-T heads out on a far-reaching tour this month performing a variety of shows.<br /></div></div><br />The majority of shows will be solo, performing songs from his extensive back catalogue spanning seven studio albums, including Capital and Love Is Not Rescue both released through Xtra Mile Recordings.

Addictively melodic and blisteringly raw to its very core, the album was produced by the band, and executive produced and engineered by Avalanche’s prolific drummer Brett “The Ratt” Romnes, and mixed by Machine (Fall Out Boy, Every Time I Die, Four Year Strong). Featuring 12 anthemic songs, including ‘Brooklyn Dodgers’, the bold ‘Holy Fuck’, the epic and somber ‘Dead Friends’ and ‘The Gravedigger’s Argument’ featuring Anthony Raneri from Bayside. Throughout, Caruana’s distinctive voice drips with defiance, humor and proud vulnerability as he sings about hope, heartbreak, death, defying adversity and the bonds between family, lovers and friends.<br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">ROCK SOUND 8/10:</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">“…the result is a fiery, honest and raw state of affairs as he confronts his demons. Diving straight into the abyss with album opener and single ‘Holy Fuck’, sharp, melodic hooks prevail through the gloom, ramping up energy levels and providing an anthemic sky-puncher for another generation.” </span> <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"><br /><br />BIG CHEESE 4/5:</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">“This collection of uplifting, honest and energetic pop punk songs is I Am The Avalanche’s first in six years and follows years of writing and recording…AVALANCHE UNITED has been worth the wait.” </span> <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"><br /><br />KERRANG! 4/5:</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">“More upbeat and up-tempo than its self-titled predecessor…it’s (mostly) a barreling, positive message and poppy post-hardcore. It’s also music that makes you want to grab a drink, grab your friends and celebrate life. An excellent comeback.” </span><br /></div><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.avalancheunited.com/">www.avalancheunited.com</a><br /><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.facebook.com/iamtheavalanche">www.facebook.com/iamtheavalanche</a> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><br />Twitter @iatanyc</span><br /><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a><br /></div></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=243 Wednesday, November 02, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=243 I Am The Avalanche - UK Tour <div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6111/6299112672_b643134a02_o.jpg" title="IATA by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6111/6299112672_e1eeb1a95e_m.jpg" alt="IATA" height="240" width="169" /></a><br /></div>I Am The Avalanche hit the UK in December in support of their new record 'Avalanche United'.

Recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Pete Steinkopf (of The Bouncing Souls). Hause and a group of friends and family he compiled, dubbed The Empty Bottles Band, Hause created a perfectly crafted rock album with no genre restrictions and limitations that showcases his talents for writing catchy songs together with influences from singer/songwriters such as Jenny Lewis and Conor Oberst.<br /><br />Tracks such as the heartening ‘C’mon Kid’ and the somber ‘Melanin’ take on a new life with the help of Hause’s backing band, while fan favourite ‘Pray For Tucson’ is an acoustic number made even more beautiful with the assistance of a pedal steel guitar.<br /> <br />Since Hause started playing solo shows in 2009, he has shared the stage with a variety of artists such as Bob Mould, AFI, Frank Turner, Tim Barry (Avail), Jim Ward (At The Drive-In, Sparta), Tommy Stinson, Franz Nicolay, Chuck Ragan and Brian Fallon from Gaslight Anthem.<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.davehause.com/">www.davehause.com</a><br /><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/">www.xtramilerecordings.com </a><br /></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=247 Monday, October 24, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=247 Mull Historical Society - Releases ‘City Awakenings’, the first new MHS album since 2005, on January 23rd on Xtra Mile Recordings <div style="text-align: center;">Intimate album preview dates in London and the Isle of Mull also confirmed<br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6162/6263983000_c654d8d599_m.jpg" alt="Mull Historical Society - City Awakenings_Cover" height="240" width="240" /><br /></div>After releasing two critically albums – ‘The Water’ (2008) and ‘Island’ (2009) – under his own name, Colin MacIntyre marks the tenth anniversary of his debut album ‘Loss’ with the first Mull Historical Society album since 2005.<br /><br />Titled <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘City Awakenings’</span>, the album is MacIntyre’s first under a new deal with <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings </span>(Frank Turner, I Am The Avalanche) and will be released on<span style="font-weight: bold;"> January 23rd</span>.<br /><br />Produced by the Grammy-winning Dom Morley (Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Grinderman), ‘City Awakenings’ features ten new MacIntyre compositions which offer a tribute to Glasgow, London and New York; the three cities which have most influenced the musician as an islander abroad. MacIntyre also co-produced the album closer ‘Thameslink (London's Burning)’, which he first performed on acoustic guitar at his father’s funeral (his father’s death inspired ‘Loss’).<br /><br />“Cities have been an explosion of the senses to me,” says MacIntyre. “The songs are breezy pop, some are widescreen things, and some are more minimalist, punchy tales of finding yourself in the city, leaving them, arriving in them, burning them, living in them, and what its like for a child to see one of them for the first time. I remember that. They are mostly upbeat songs about people living their lives."<br /><br />‘City Awakenings’ will be previewed with two intimate headline shows. MacIntyre will play a homecoming show at the Isle of Mull’s An Tobar Arts Centre in Tobermory on December 6th before returning to London for a gig at Bush Hall on December 8th. Tickets are available from http://www.gigsandtours.com/?a=mull+historical+society&amp;site=mullhistoricalsociety (London) and http://www.antobar.co.uk / 01688 302211 (Isle of Mull).<br /><br />Recent months have seen a variety of fresh Mull Historical Society activity. STV recently named early MHS single ‘Watching Xanadu’ as one of the best fifteen Scottish tracks of the noughties in their series ‘Scotland’s Album’, MHS were confirmed to join Xtra Mile Recordings’ Rock Against The Riots gig at The Borderline and ‘Not Today’, a song from the ‘City Awakenings’ recording sessions, featured on volume three of the ‘Xtra Mile High Club’ compilation series.<br /><br />In addition, MacIntyre has recently taken on a post to help lead the Scottish-based charity Mary’s Meals (www.marysmeals.com) in London and the south-east. “We feed children a daily meal in their place of education in the poorest communities of the world,” explains MacIntyre. “The charity began in 2002 with our founder Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow by feeding two-hundred children in Malawi and now feeds over 557,000 every day in sixteen countries across four continents, proving an escape route out of poverty. I’m proud to be associated with the charity and my recent visit to some of the projects in Malawi was a life-changing experience. Music broke down the communication barriers and I saw what an amazing difference this charity is making to lives, families and whole communities.”<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.mullhistoricalsociety.com/">www.mullhistoricalsociety.com</a><br /><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.facebook.com/colinmacintyremull">www.facebook.com/colinmacintyremull</a><br /></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=248 Thursday, October 20, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=248 Kyle D Evans of The Retrospective Soundtrack Players announces solo shows <div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5256/5535271594_6be506b5c9_m.jpg" alt="The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Eggs pic high res" height="161" width="240" /><br /></div><br />Kyle D Evans of The Retrospective Soundtrack Players has just confirmed that he will be playing the following solo shows in October and November.<br /><br />Wed Oct 19 – London Borderline*<br />Thur Oct 20 – Kingston, Fighting Cocks<br />Sun Oct 23 – Brighton, Foundry<br />Wed Oct 26 – Leeds, Royal Park Cellars<br />Fri Oct 28 – Bristol, Stag and Hounds £<br />Mon Oct 31 – Richmond, Vodka Revolution<br />Tue Nov 1 – Cardiff, Pot Café £<br />Thur Nov 3 – Brighton, Druid’s Arms £<br />Fri Nov 4 – London, Wheelbarrow Camden %£<br />Sat Nov 5 – SHOW NEEDED, CAN YOU HELP? %£<br />Sun Nov 6 – Portsmouth, Edge of the Wedge %£<br />Thurs Nov 10 – Swindon, Rolleston<br />Fri Nov 11 – Chichester Inn<br />Sat Nov 12 – Birmingham, Bright House<br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">* – Xtra Mile showcase</span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">% – with Ben Marwood</span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">£ – with MyNameIsIan</span> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=249 Monday, October 17, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=249 Manchester.

Here’s what the press had to say about ‘Scatterbrain’:<br /><br />"Scottish trio become contenders on brilliant second album" - 4/5 Kerrang!<br />displays "...songwriting chops that are matures beyond their relatively young years. All that early promise they showed? Welcome to Deliveryville, population them. - 8/10 Rock Sound<br />The Xcerts have outdone themselves. This is a record that bands strive their whole careers to write and they’ve gone and done it on the second attempt.

Pleased doesn't quite cover it. The possibilities, literally, are end-ful.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Running order is 'polymers are forever', 'with apologies to emily pankhurst', 'new adventures', 'my wife is unhappy', 'dry hate' and 'destroywhitchurch.com'. It has a running time somewhere in the region of twenty one minutes and is 'very nice' ((c) my mother, last week).</span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">The first three songs are taken from the album sessions (more of this later) whilst the final three are earlier demos we didn't have the time, money or inclination to re-record. At this stage I have no earthly idea if the EP will end up being pressed on vinyl but the chances, as ever, are dramatically increased the more people ask.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Just saying.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">'polymers are forever' will appear on the album 'the plot against common sense', which will be released in early 2012.

I would like to apologise in advance to my bandmates and the cat for how drunk I get upon its completion.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">The following live dates are confirmed before the end of the year -</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">20th November Cardiff, Clwb Ifor Bach (No, really?) with Saturdays Kids and one more TBC, <a href="http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_wales&amp;query=detail&amp;event=472159">tickets</a></span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">26th November Leeds, Cockpit (supports unconfirmed at this stage), <a href="https://www.lunatickets.co.uk/event_page.php?eventID=1745">tickets</a></span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">29th November London, Hoxton Bar and Kitchen with Saturdays Kids and Fever Fever. <a href="http://www.wegottickets.com/event/137829">tickets</a> </span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Australian dates are as follows -</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">4th December Perth, Rosemount</span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">6th December Brisbane, The Zoo</span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">8th December Sydney, Annandale Hotel</span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">9th-11th December Meredith Music Festival 16th December Melbourne, The Corner</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Best link for tickets for these little bastards is <a href="http://handsometours.com/upcoming-tours/future-of-the-left">http://handsometours.com/upcoming-tours/future-of-the-left</a></span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Really.

All backed by the stripped down arrangement of acoustic guitar, harmonica, banjo and piano.

Frank Turner has also confirmed his biggest headline show to date at London’s Wembley Arena for April 2012.<br /><br />The third single to be lifted from the Top 12 album ‘England Keep My Bones’ it encapsulates the album’s feeling of nostalgia, reminiscing about home towns and re-visiting cosy childhood memories after a long time away. And in some uncanny cosmic timing it provides the perfect soundtrack as the winter nights draw in and attention is turned to going home for Christmas.<br /><br />It also echoes Frank’s return to these shores after months of touring North America and Europe. He’s back for his huge UK headline tour with his band The Sleeping Souls.

More info on that to come!<br /><br />The gig is part of Xtra Mile’s ‘F**k The Fire’ campaign, a project born out of the ashes of the summer’s London Riots. When a fire tore down the Sony DADC Warehouse that housed [PIAS], a large distributor of over 150 independent record labels, all Xtra Mile’s new releases, limited editions and back catalogue went up in flames. So we teamed up with our friends at PledgeMusic and formed an exciting direct-to-fan campaign.<br /><br />We invited fans to tell us what stock they would like us to replenish from our extensive catalogue and if we reach our targets we’ll get re-pressing right then and there!

It is the album fans have been waiting on for over six years. Vinnie Caruana (vocals), Brandon Swanson (guitar), Michael Ireland (guitar), Brett “The Ratt” Romnes (drums) and Kellen Robson (bass) formed I Am the Avalanche in the fall of 2004 and quickly released their debut self-titled album in 2005. They toured the world relentlessly in support of this album, which became a cult favorite among fans and the band’s peers, and with popularity and respect from the punk rock community through Caruana’s previous band The Movielife, IATA soon established their own intensely dedicated following around the globe.<br />In 2006, IATA began writing and demoing new music for their follow-up album. Despite the odd rare live performance they decided to return to their DIY roots and become self-managed, self-booked and almost completely on their own so they could be laser-focused on writing the best album of their careers.<br /><br />Six years after the release of their debut album, IATA have returned with just that. Set for release on 10th October 2011, produced by the band, and executive produced and engineered by their prolific drummer Brett “The Ratt” Romnes and mixed by Machine (Fall Out Boy, Every Time I Die, Four Year Strong), AVALANCHE UNITED is addictively melodic and blisteringly raw to its very core. Featuring 12 anthemic songs, the album includes ‘Brooklyn Dodgers’, the bold ‘Holy Fuck’, the epic and somber ‘Dead Friends’ and ‘The Gravedigger’s Argument’ featuring Anthony Raneri from Bayside. Throughout, Caruana’s distinctive voice drips with defiance, humor and proud vulnerability as he sings about hope, heartbreak, death, defying adversity and the bonds between family, lovers and friends.<br /><br />And just seconds into first listening to AVALANCHE UNITED, it’ll be immediately clear that I Am the Avalanche are back with one of punk’s most powerful albums in years, unbroken and unbowed.<br /></div><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.facebook.com/iamtheavalanche">www.facebook.com/iamtheavalanche</a><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Twitter @iatanyc</span><br /><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">For more information please contact: </span><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="mailto:info@presscounselpr.com">info@presscounselpr.com</a><br /></div></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=258 Wednesday, September 21, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=258 F**K THE FIRE - Xtra Mile Recordings team up with PledgeMusic to launch new campaign <div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/" title="xtramile website grey by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6155/6152682810_4b711bf17f_m.jpg" alt="xtramile website grey" height="240" width="150" /></a><br /></div>We, at London based indie label <span style="font-weight: bold;">Xtra Mile Recordings</span>, are offering friends, supporters and music lovers everywhere the chance to participate in something truly special….<br /><br />Home to <span style="font-weight: bold;">Frank Turner</span>, <span style="font-weight: bold;">The Xcerts</span>, <span style="font-weight: bold;">Crazy Arm</span>, <span style="font-weight: bold;">Chris T-T</span>, <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jim Ward</span> (former At The Drive-In and Sparta guitarist/songwriter),<span style="font-weight: bold;"> Dave Hause</span> (The Loved Ones), <span style="font-weight: bold;">Sophie Madeleine</span> and previously <span style="font-weight: bold;">Million Dead</span> and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Reuben</span> to name just a few, we have an eclectic roster of hard working and inspiring acts that we are all very proud to be working with.

All in all, millions of pounds worth of stock from Independent labels turned to ashes, including all Xtra Mileʼs new releases, limited editions and back catalogue.<br /><br />Not ones to choke on this misfortune though, we are turning this unfortunate state of affairs into a positive and together with our friends at PledgeMusic we have formed an exciting direct-to-fan campaign.<br /><br />We’re inviting fans to tell us what stock they would like us to replenish from our extensive catalogue and if we reach our targets…weʼll get re-pressing right then and there!

Very excited to be a part of their family and looking forward to coming over to the UK and Europe this November."<br /><br />The double disc album is a comprehensive and beautifully packaged piece of work. A 28-track collection, the first disc includes the original 10-song ‘White Crosses’ album featuring four bonus tracks that were all produced by Butch Vig and mixed by Alan Moulder. The second disc, titled ‘Black Crosses’, is a collection of alternate versions of the album tracks as well as other previously unreleased songs. Of the 14 self-produced Black Crosses songs, nine were recorded with drummer Warren Oakes at Goldentone Studios in Gainesville, FL shortly before he departed the band in Spring 2009. The other five acoustic songs were recorded at Crescendo Studios, also in Gainesville, in early 2010.<b style=""><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mknxyFKGQu4"><br /></a></b><p></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;"><br /><b style=""><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mknxyFKGQu4"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/mknxyFKGQu4" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="344" width="425"></iframe></a></b></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: left;">It will be released on 3xLP vinyl and 2xCD both presented in tri-fold packaging created by famed artist and designer Steak Mtn., including a 32-page lyric and art booklet. It will also be available as a digital bundle.<br /><br />Additionally, the band recently released the music video for their new single “Because of the Shame.” Directed by Jason Thrasher, the video is the band’s personal and lively homage to Common Grounds, a Gainesville, FL, mainstay that recently closed its doors after 15 years of serving both the local and nationally touring music community.

Bringing with them a small army of fans the tent continued to fill up throughout the half hour set, their infectious punk rock drawing festival go-ers in. By the end of their slot – they were playing to a busy and enthusiastic crowd who left new recruits to the Fighting Fiction fanbase.<br />Come and see this band on the rise as they tour the country playing the following dates: <br /><br />SEPTEMBER<br />14 Sticky Mike's Frog Bar (Previously Jam), Brighton<br />15 Goblets, Southampton<br />16 The Nags Head, High Wycombe<br />17 Buffalo Bar, Cardiff<br />18 The Croft, Bristol<br />19 Karma Café, Norwich<br />20 The Firefly, Worcester<br />21 Barcelona Bar, Liverpool<br />22 The Cavern, Exeter<br />23 White Rabbit, Plymouth w/Crazy Arm<br />24 Frogfest - The Frog and Fiddle, Cheltenham<br />26 Taylor Johns, Coventry<br />27 LYH, Newcastle<br />29 Fox &amp; Newt, Leeds<br />30 The Pig and Whistle, Nuneaton<br />OCTOBER<br />01 The Royal Oak, Bath <br /><br />Earlier this summer Fighting Fiction revealed the first single from their Mark Williams (Biffy Clyro, Bloc Party, Million Dead, Oceansize) produced debut album. ‘Rock 'n' Roll is Dead and its Corpse is for Sale’ gained plays on Radio 1 and rave reviews in specialist music press thanks to its thought provoking lyrics and catchy refrains. <br /><br />Speaking of the single and forthcoming album frontman Jacob Glew says "This is an album conceived over weekends and late nights in living rooms and start up studios, we've spent every hour we have spare pouring ourselves into these ten songs to make them the best they can possibly be, they're personal and political, recorded by our friend and fantastic producer Mark Williams and played by us to the best of our ability we want every note and word to sound like we meant them, because we did". <br /><br />More information to come soon!<br /><br />“(Rock ‘n’ Roll Is Dead And Its Corpse Is For Sale) is a tantalizing taste of things to come.” Big Cheese<br />“...Fighting Fiction, in whose sharp songwriting there is something identifiably British, and they cling to them with their fingernails, giving them a careering thrill.” - Kerrang!<br />"Stormin' Norman! Tight punchy playing and production with warped off-kilter lyrics in the great English tradition of songs like Arnold Layne and Tracy Jacks. A storming track." - Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)<br />"Unapologetically catchy and with a social conscience that yells rather than speaks to all, Fighting Fiction immediately crave your attention, capturing you from the first rush of jingle fused beats and failing to relinquish their hold until the last burst of gang led vocals truly ensnares. More than promising, this is a band that you need to discover now!" 12/13 Room Thirteen <br /><br />www.fightingfiction.com<br />www.myspace.com/fightingfiction<br />www.facebook.com/fightingfiction

These shows will be our only UK dates this year so be sure to come out and have fun.</span>” <br /> <br />Not content with resting on their laurels the band will also be hitting the remaining festival of the year taking in <span style="font-weight: bold;">Wizard Festival</span> and performing as special guests at <span style="font-weight: bold;">Southsea Fest</span> before.

The lyrics are an indictment of man-made structures of violence and a call for a return to simpler, more ethically-centred ways of interacting. Also on the record: the voice of Victoria Butterfield (who sang on the band's last single 'Sweet Storm') and keys courtesy Patrick James Pearson. The single will coincide with the band’s debut acoustic tour in August with Cory Branan and Sam Russo in August.</span> <br /> <br /><span style="font-family:verdana;">The follow-up to 2009’s dramatic debut, ‘Born To Ruin’ (‘Stunning’ KKKK Kerrang), 'Union City Breath' was produced/engineered once again by Peter Miles (King Blues, The Computers, Sonic Boom Six) at his new studio in the South Devon countryside. Taking its cue from the spurious idea of the Big Society, 'Union City Breath' is a reminder that all societies are made by people and can be changed or at least challenged by people whenever they see fit. The band will be touring the album throughout the UK in September, and are the main support to Against Me! on their European/UK tour in November.</span> <br /> <br /><span style="font-family:verdana;">Crazy Arm set up camp in mid-2006. Not easy to categorise, and all the better for it, their sound is an accumulation of decades of influence and inspiration: rooted in hardcore/punk, ‘60s protest folk/country and classic rock’n’roll, combined with a grass-roots political overview that embraces anti-war, anti-fascist and pro-community activism.</span> <br /> <br /><span style="font-family:verdana;">They have toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe many times, sharing stages with the likes of Frank Turner, Chuck Ragan, The Xcerts, Bangers, Apologies I Have None, The Cut Ups, Two Cow Garage and Sonic Boom Six; and have made appearances at festivals including 2000 Trees, NASS, Leopallooza, Boardmasters, Reading and Leeds.</span> <br /> <br /><span style="font-family:verdana;">Full tracklisting for <span style="font-weight: bold;">‘Union City Breath’:</span></span> <br /><span style="font-weight: bold;font-family:verdana;" >1.

As most people have now heard, the festival has been cancelled. I have neither the knowledge nor the desire to get involved in arguments as to why; the guys at the festival were cool with me all through and are bitterly disappointed that it's not happening, that's all I know for sure. Whatever the case, that show isn't going ahead.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Naturally, me being me, I've been trying to sort out a replacement show for tomorrow in Newcastle. We now, finally, have a plan.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">We (the Sleeping Souls and I) will be playing at the Newcastle O2 Academy tomorrow night. Doors will be at 7pm, and the show will run until 10.30. If you have an Ignition Festival ticket, entry will be free. Otherwise entry will be £10, tickets on the door. The venue is smaller than the festival, so it'll be first come, first served. The age limit is 14 +. </span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;"> </span><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">We've spent the last 24 hours going through a million permutations, trying to cover every aspect (age restrictions, time, location, venue size, ticket holders etc.) and this is, as far as anyone can tell, the best option. I'd like to say a special thanks to Paul and his staff at the Academy, Joanna (my booking agent) and Graham (my tour manager) for working their arses off to pull this together. I know it doesn't replace an outdoor festival, but I think it's a great effort for the last minute!</span><br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">Incidentally, according to the Ignition Festival website, they will be refunding tickets, so keep hold of yours whether you can make it to the show or not, hopefully you'll get your money back. See you all tomorrow night."</span><br /><br />Frank releases his new single<span style="font-weight: bold;"> 'If Ever I Stray' </span>on <span style="font-weight: bold;">29th August</span> just a day after he plays the Main Stage at the Reading and Leeds Festival.<br /><br />He will be touring the UK in <span style="font-weight: bold;">November</span> -<br />full dates are:<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">22 Bournemouth O2 Academy </span> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><br />23 Newport, Newport Centre</span> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><br />24 Birmingham O2 Academy</span><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">25 Glasgow Barrowlands</span> <span style="font-weight: bold;"><br />26 Manchester O2 Apollo</span><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">27 London HMV Hammersmith Apollo</span><br /></div></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=272 Friday, August 05, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=272 Frank Turner 'If Ever I Stray' Video <div style="text-align: center;"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/SVx2RuANAyk" allowfullscreen="" width="425" frameborder="0" height="344"></iframe></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=273 Wednesday, August 03, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=273 Jim Ward - 'Quiet In The Valley, On The Shores The End Begins' Out Now! <div style="text-align: center;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6028/5908037699_cde24a4aa5_o.jpg" title="Jim Ward - Quiet In the Valley, On the Shores the End Begins sleeve by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6028/5908037699_ab2174fb11_m.jpg" alt="Jim Ward - Quiet In the Valley, On the Shores the End Begins sleeve" width="240" height="240" /></a><br /></div><span style="font-weight: bold;"><br /></span><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">Jim Ward</span>'s (At The Drive-In, Sparta, Sleepercar...) brilliant debut album '<span style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">Quiet In The Valley, On The Shores The End Begins</span>' is out this week so make sure you grab yourself a copy!

Take me down to the English Channel . Throw me in where the water is shallow, and drag me on back to shore” believe us when we say you’ll be singing this joyfully all summer long.<br /><br />‘If Ever I Stray’ – backed by brand new song ‘Sailor’s Boots’ - is the second single to be lifted from the chart busting album ‘England Keep My Bones’ which came out in June of this year. Entering the official midweek album charts at Number 6, finishing up at Number 12 on the Sunday, it has been applauded by all sections of the press garnering 4/5 in Q, 4/5 in Kerrang!, 8/10 in NME and 9/10 in Rocksound to name a few and was Zane Lowe’s Album of the Week on Radio 1, XFM’s Album of the Week and Album of the Day on 6Music.<br /><br />After a truck load of festival appearances this summer that include Cambridge Folk Festival, Port Eliot, Kendal Calling, Mannifest and a host of European festivals, and his largest full band tour in USA in the Autumn (Bowery in New York already sold out – extra date added) Frank Turner will return to the UK to play a huge UK tour to take place this winter.

His musical career started in 1994 when he formed a band with his friend <span style="font-weight: bold;">Cedric Bixler</span> – that band was seminal post-hardcore band <span style="font-weight: bold;">At The Drive-in</span>. In the seven years they were together, they spearheaded a brand new genre of punk/hardcore and amassed worldwide fame and success. After they disbanded he went on to front <span style="font-weight: bold;">Sparta</span> and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Sleepercar</span> before settling into his solo work. In a career that has taken him all round the world, Ward’s driving work ethic and strong DIY attitude has propelled his creative output forward; continuously making music and touring the country with nothing more than his voice, an acoustic guitar and his true punk ideals. Never one to forget his roots, he has not only set up their own recording studio but opened a local bar with his wife and friends, and set up Tembloroso.com – an online shop he helped create to highlight El Paso’s local artists and musicians.<br /><br />Ward’s contribution to music is far-reaching, spanning three decades and stretching across the world; and with this new chapter just about to unfold – his long legacy continues.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">For more information please contact info@presscounselpr.com / 0207 7929400</span> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=279 Wednesday, July 06, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=279 Sophie Madeleine - Brand new album - 'The Rythem You Started' Xtra Mile Recording’s newest signing, Sophie Madeleine, announces details of her brand new album The Rhythm You Started which will be released on 25th July 2011.<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dangriffiths/5754416485/sizes/o/in/photostream/" title="sophiemadeleinehires by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3574/5754416485_9755ebb7c3_m.jpg" alt="sophiemadeleinehires" width="180" height="240" /></a><br /></div><br />An experimentation with rhythm, Madeleine’s second album is a refreshing mix of timeless folk-pop songwriting with an uplifting indie synth edge. The multi-instrumentalist seamlessly weaves percussion loops and drum machines together with ukulele, violin, and sweet vocal harmonies. This summery blend is tied together by her disarming vocal. Its feather-light vibrato complements vivid metaphors and hook-laden melodies.<br /><br />After self-producing the ten-track album from her living room in Brighton, Sophie sought out the mixing expertise of esteemed producer Danton Supple. His previous credits include Coldplay, Thirteen Senses, Tenderfoot and Electric Soft Parade.<br /><br />Before signing with Xtra Mile, Sophie sold out a limited run of The Rhythm You Started, personally mailing copies to fans in 27 countries on five continents. The forthcoming single, “Oil &amp; Gold,” has already been played on Radio 2 by Steve Lamacq. She also recently supported Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals, Neon Neon) at his headlining show at New York’s legendary Mercury Lounge.<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6008/5908033597_9f3c0fe34f_o.jpg" title="sophie madeleine by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6008/5908033597_41c4d18ebd_m.jpg" alt="sophie madeleine" width="240" height="240" /></a><br /></div><br />UK summer tour dates will be announced soon.<br /><br />Track listing for The Rhythm You Started<br /><br />1.

Already a live favourite, 'Tribes/Animals', is a song of two distinct parts, combining the band's love of Springsteen, gospel and honest punk rock. The lyrics are an indictment of man-made structures of violence and a call for a return to simpler, more ethically-centred ways of interacting. Also on the record: the voice of Victoria Butterfield (who sang on the band's last single 'Sweet Storm') and keys courtesy Patrick James Pearson. The single will coincide with the band’s debut acoustic tour in August with Cory Branan and Sam Russo. All tour dates below.<br /><br />The follow-up to 2009’s dramatic debut, ‘Born To Ruin’ (‘Stunning’ KKKK Kerrang; ‘Quite brilliant’ Rock Sound; ‘Storming roots-punk debut’ Big Cheese), 'Union City Breath' is currently in the finishing stages and is being produced/engineered, once again, by Peter Miles (King Blues, The Computers, Sonic Boom Six, Dry The River) at his new studio deep in the South Devon countryside. Taking its cue from the spurious idea of the Big Society, 'Union City Breath' is a reminder that all societies are made by people and can be changed or at least challenged by people whenever they see fit. The most authoritarian of institutions and the largest of multinational corporations are still only the product of human endeavour, propped up by other people with the same global interests – they can be, will be and are dismantled if and when they continue to pose a threat and cause violence upon ordinary people.<br /><br />The band are due to play Shepherds Bush Empire with Social Distortion on 7th July amongst other shows and festival appearances including 2000 Trees and Boardmasters. The album will coincide with a comprehensive tour of the UK and mainland Europe.<br /><br />Tour dates:<br />Thurs 7th July - London, Shepherds Bush Empire (w/Social Distortion) SOLD OUT<br />Fri 8th July - London, The Bowery (with The Dissociates) £6.00<br />Sat 9th July - Voodoo Lounge, LMHR benefit<br />Thurs14th July - 2000 Trees Festival, Cheltenham, rock set (approx 4pm)<br />Fri 15th July - 2000 Trees Festival, Cheltenham, acoustic set (approx 6pm)<br />Sat 23rd July - Livestock Festival, near Sidmouth<br />Sat 6th Aug – Plymouth, Jack Chams (acoustic show)<br />Fri 12th Aug - Boardmasters Festival, Vans Stage (approx 7pm)<br />Sun 14th Aug - Manchester, Tiger Lounge (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Apologies, I Have None + Sam Russo)<br />Mon 15th Aug – Lincoln, venue tbc (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Sam Russo)<br />Tues 16th Aug - Leeds, Santiagos (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Sam Russo)<br />Weds 17th Aug - Nottingham, The Maze (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Sam Russo)<br />Thurs 18th Aug - Southsea, Edge Of The Wedge (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Sam Russo)<br />Fri 19th Aug - London, The Windmill (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Sam Russo)<br />Sat 20th Aug - Brighton, The Prince Albert (acoustic w/Cory Branan + Sam Russo)<br />Mon 29th Aug - Dbs festival, Bristol<br />Fri 9th Sept - Ivylive Festival, Ivybridge (with The King Blues + lots more)<br />Sun 11th Sept - Plymouth Punks Picnic<br /><br />Crazy Arm, properly set up camp in mid-2006.

In the lyrics to the song Ben sings <span style="font-style: italic;">"I guess I could be the next big thing, but that would just be weird. So I guess I'll play more Folk clubs, but I'd have to grow a beard”</span>. The irony being that this track might well provide the step he needs to reach the next level.<br /><br />Two years after the release of 'This Is Not What You Had Planned', the independent mini-album that grasped the attention of The Times, Artrocker, BBC Radio 1 &amp; 2 and XFM, and following last year's 'Exclamation At Asterisk Hash' split with Oxygen Thief and Jim Lockey, 'Outside There's A Curse' firmly establishes Ben's coiled, lyrical style. Though the angst of 2008 lingers, along with the expected pop culture sideswipes and name-checking, it is complemented by a philosophical acceptance in the face of death ('Toil'), a will to make good on past mistakes ('I Will Breathe You In') and light-hearted jabs at his own shortcomings ('Oh My Days', recorded live in front of a studio audience of thirteen).<br /><br />In support of the release of ‘Singalong’ Ben will be supporting label mate <span style="font-weight: bold;">Frank Turner</span> at the following <span style="font-weight: bold;">SOLD OUT</span> shows:<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">‘AN EVENING WITH FRANK TURNER’</span> <span style="font-weight: bold;">MAY</span><br /><br />9 Stockton ARC<br />10 Dundee Doghouse<br />11 Dunfermline, PJ Molloys<br />12 Brighton Coalition<br />13 Nottingham Rescue Rooms<br />14 Lancaster Library<br />15 Chester Telfords Warehouse<br />16 Leeds Brudenell Social Club<br />18 Manchester Night &amp; Day<br />19 Liverpool Cathedral Crypt<br />20 Stoke Sugarmill<br />22 Wolverhampton Slade Room<br />23 Gloucester Guidhall<br />24 Bristol St Georges Church<br />25 Bath Komedia<br />26 Kingston Hippodrome (New Slang)<br />27 Cambridge St Pauls Church<br />28 Norwich Play Festival<br />29 Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms<br />30 Winchester Railway<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.benmarwood.com/">www.benmarwood.com</a><br /><a href="http://www.myspace.com/benmarwoodmusic">www.myspace.com/benmarwoodmusic</a><br /><a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a><br /></div><br /><span style="font-style: italic;">"Packed with witty lyrical observations, 'Outside There's A Curse' is at times bold, intelligent and wholesome."</span><span style="font-weight: bold;"> 8/10 - Rock Sound</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">"There's an over riding sense here, just like when Frank Turner first picked up an acoustic guitar, that we could be peering into the colourful minutiae of a songwriter whose story will be well worth following.” –</span><span style="font-weight: bold;"> 4K’s Kerrang</span><br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">For more information please contact Dan Griffiths (National/Online) or Anthea (Regional) - <a href="mailto:info@presscounselpr.com">info@presscounselpr.com</a></span><br /></div> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=289 Friday, April 15, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=289 Chris T-T - New EP & UK Headline Tour Following the release of his seventh studio album ‘Love Is Not Rescue’ last year, national musical treasure <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Chris T-T</span> releases the stunning EP <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">‘Words Fail Me’</span> on <strong>11<span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">th April 2011</span></strong> through <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Xtra Mile Recordings</span>. <br /><div style="TEXT-ALIGN: center"><a href="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2696/4112214242_b3f76b569c_o.jpg"><img height="180" alt="2010 press pic" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2696/4112214242_ff9990d28d_m.jpg" width="240" /></a> </div>The closing track on ‘Love Is Not Rescue’, ‘Words Fail Me’ sees this lyric genius reflect on his career choices and depicts, in aching honesty, the creative process of writing the album, portraying personal crisis and self-doubt. Yet it’s a song of triumph and enlightenment with an upbeat tempo and a catchy hook – the perfect example of why Chris is a renowned and revered master of songwriting. Already a favourite among the critics, both <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Tom Robinson</span> and <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Andrew Collins</span> have played the tracks on their <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">6Music</span> shows, the latter also included ‘Love Is Not Rescue’ in his <span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Top 10 Best Albums of 2010.</span> Further praise has come from Radio 2 who over the past few weeks have played fellow album track, ‘Open &amp; Shut’, and the traditional folk a capella number ‘M1 Song’ A creative powerhouse, Chris is also starting work on a follow-up album. Titled ‘The Battle of Clarkson's Lighthouse‘, it is being recorded with his band The Hoodrats and culminates with Jeremy Clarkson being thrown in the Irish Sea! It will be released later in the year with more information to come. Chris will be heading out on a solo tour in May in support of the release.

Originally beginning as a two man concept project by two of indie-folk outfit <span style="font-weight: bold;">The Dawn Chorus</span> the duo won a competition through Xtra Mile Recordings website (<a href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/">www.xtramilerecordings.com</a>) in August 2010 to have their track ‘Real Cool Hand’ featured as the B-side to (now label-mate) <span style="font-weight: bold;">Frank Turner</span>’s single ‘Try This At Home’. The success of the limited edition (and now highly collectable) split 7” was far greater than than the band anticipated and saw them being featured on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music before they had played any shows! Following on from the unexpected success chief songwriter Kyle Evans then began to gathered together a collective gaggle of musicians from the thriving Hampshire music scene – including members of The B of the Bang and All The Shapes and the 12-legged country/folk/punk beast The Retrospective Soundtrack Players was born!<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5133/5534689763_9160f262c0_o.jpg" title="The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - eggs pic low res by dangriffiths.com, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5133/5534689763_f385dd1440_m.jpg" alt="The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - eggs pic low res" width="240" height="171" /></a><br /></div>Catch the band at The Retrospective Soundtrack Players at the following show:<br /><br />28/03/2011 - Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, London (with CHRIS T-T &amp; DIVE DIVE)<br />09/04/2011 - Bright House, Birmingham (with BEANS ON TOAST)<br />10/04/2011 - The Mad Ferret, Preston<br />11/04/2011 - Mojo, Liverpool<br />29/04/2011 - Chichester Inn, Chichester<br />01/05/2011 - Edge of the Wedge, Portsmouth<br />13/05/2011 - Talking Heads, Southampton<br />14/05/2011 - Foggy's Bar, Petersfield<br />16/07/2011 - Two Thousand Trees Festival (Leaf Lounge)<br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.myspace.com/therspuk">www.myspace.com/therspuk</a><br /><a style="font-weight: bold;" href="http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/">www.xtramilerecordings.com </a><br /></div><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">For more information please contact info@presscounselpr.com – 020 7792 9400</span> http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=291 Thursday, March 17, 2011 http://www.xtramilerecordings.com/NewsDetails.aspx?nid=291 The Xcerts join the bill of the huge Teenage Cancer Trust show at The Royal Albert Hall in support of Biffy Clyro Having only just been swept off to Europe with cult stoner rockers Fu Manchu; <span style="font-weight: bold;">THE XCERTS</span> have now been added to the bill of a huge show at <span style="font-weight: bold;">The Royal Albert Hall</span> in support of the <span style="font-weight: bold;">Teenage Cancer Trust</span>.

With the acoustic guitar very much at its core, the album is more folky than predecessor ‘Poetry Of The Deed’ and even includes an a cappella song done in a traditional English style. Featuring contributions from ex-<span style="font-weight: bold;">Hold Steady</span> keyboardist <span style="font-weight: bold;">Franz Nicolay</span>, folk singers <span style="font-weight: bold;">Emily Barker</span> and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Chris T-T</span>, and <span style="font-weight: bold;">Unbelievable Truth</span>’s <span style="font-weight: bold;">Andy Yorke</span>, he covers themes of mortality, relationships and religion in what is a bold, ballsy yet beautiful album.<br />Frank says:<br /><span style="font-style: italic;">"I can't wait to get this record out there. The new songs have been going down really well live, but I think that when people hear the studio versions they're going to go nuts. I think it's the strongest set of material I've had on one record."</span><br /><br />He will be showcasing some of these tracks when he takes to the road for a special solo tour in May. Playing small and intimate venues up and down the country, this will be a fantastic chance to see Frank up close and personal before he spends the summer playing to vast crowds of festival go-ers all over the world.<br />The dates are as follows:<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">‘AN EVENING WITH FRANK TURNER’</span><br /><br />MAY<br />9 Stockton ARC<br />10 Dundee Doghouse<br />11 Dunfermline, PJ Molloys<br />12 Brighton Coalition<br />13 Nottingham Rescue Rooms<br />14 Lancaster Library<br />15 Chester Telfords Warehouse<br />16 Leeds Brudenell Social Club<br />18 Manchester Night &amp; Day<br />19 Liverpool Cathedral Crypt<br />20 Stoke Sugarmill<br />22 Wolverhampton Slade Room<br />23 Gloucester Guidhall<br />24 Bristol St Georges Church<br />25 Bath Komedia<br />26 Kingston Hippodrome (New Slang)<br />27 Cambridge St Pauls Church<br />28 Norwich Play Festival<br />29 Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms<br />30 Winchester Railway<br /><br />This summer will see Frank play a staggering array of festivals over the summer months including headlining the third stage at <span style="font-weight: bold;">Download Festival</span> on 12th June and headlining <span style="font-weight: bold;">Blissfields Festival </span>on 1st July.

Speaking of the recording process frontman JP Reid says "<span style="font-style: italic;">It was the most relaxed and fun sessions I've ever been involved in. In fact everything went so smoothly it felt a bit strange because we're not used to it. Sheldon as ever was an absolute star at bringing out the best in the tracks and making it powerful. Credit also to Chris Gordon who also done an amazing job on the mastering. We really wanted to make a joyous and euphoric album, the opposite of (the band’s second record) ‘Pain Agency’. I guess for anyone into our darker side, some of it may be surprising but we weren't interested in treading ground we had already walked on. It's super important for us to keep taking risks and progressing."</span><br /><br />The tracklisting for ‘The Heart String &amp; How To Pull It’ is:<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">1.

Still, Ben has continued to record songs wherever and whenever he could. Starting out 14 months ago on an 8-track portable studio before utilising the kindly nature of fellow songwriter Jay Newton, and his bedroom floor, this long-awaited collection of sardonic and honest acoustic-led tales is finally completed.<br /><br />Two years after the release of 'This Is Not What You Had Planned', the independent mini-album that grasped the attention of The Times, Artrocker, BBC Radio 1 &amp; 2 and XFM, and following last year's 'Exclamation At Asterisk Hash' split with Oxygen Thief and Jim Lockey, 'Outside There's A Curse' firmly establishes Ben's coiled, lyrical style. Though the angst of 2008 lingers, along with the expected pop culture sideswipes and name-checking, it is complemented by a philosophical acceptance in the face of death ('Toil'), a will to make good on past mistakes ('I Will Breathe You In') and light-hearted jabs at his own shortcomings ('Oh My Days', recorded live in front of a studio audience of thirteen).<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Tracklisting:</span><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">1.
