Was wondering if they were releasing an album this year or not.
a great shame
this is such a shame. urrghh. i thought they finished the album ages and ages ago, i was wondering why it was taking so long.
Asked them about the lp a few months ago and they said it probably wasnt coming out. They have also been tweeting about every member now working behind a bar - so I guess it is not a surprise they've given up. A real shame. Their Lexington show 18 months ago was amazing
and release the album. I understand all the stuff they said on their FB page about not finding the right label etc, but it seems like a waste... Obviously I don't know at all, but it felt like they were trying to release a kinda big impact debut album (like bands did in the mid-2000s), whereas most British bands over the last five years have had low key debuts and sort of built it up from there e.g. Dutch Uncles, Wild Beasts, Mazes, Conquering Animal Sound, Hookworms (obviously no 2nd album yet but I expect it'll be much bigger than the 1st). That sort of career trajectory seemed perfect for LBH, who have always been quite slow burning and considered, rather than an explosive radio-friendly pop band. But maybe it was nowt to do with any of that anyway.
is that the album has finally been released today!
