OK, so this is a jag, but so what. Favours for Sailors are fucking amazing and so's this news. This is the message i sent from Facebook earlier and it makes sense to copy this in here, as most wouldn't have seen it:
"Today is a good day. The snow thawing here in London is symbolic. Probably. Regardless, we've actually something really exciting to tell you about..
We've been pissing our pants about this for so long, so it's with barely contained excitement that we can announce the release of the Favours for Sailors 6 track mini album. It's in shops from the 2nd March, but you can pre-order it directly from us now.
While you wait for the beautiful gatefold 12" vinyl and CD combo to arrive (yeah you heard that right, 12" AND CD. Together), we'll send you a code so you can download the songs for free from our site. Pretty good deal, right? There's only 500 copies, and with all the fuss being made about them, i don't think they're going to stick around too long.

As the more astute of you will notice from the band's myspace page, they've also been confirmed as main support on the Danananaykroyd tour in April. Pretty amazing. There's also an XFM session coming up in March and they've already been all over Radio 1 and 6 Music. Heady days. Good times.
That's it for now. Clear the 2nd March for the launch at Old Blue Last (with the equally wonderful Empty Set - their album is sounding sweet too). More details to follow soon(ish).
Today I've been listening to a song with the opening lines "Love is a lost cause, but we can give it a go". It's now the Tough Love theme tune!
So, Danananan support! Amazing. Calories have the other half of the tour. Them boys sure have great taste!
