2007 has already been a hectic year for Assembly Now. Having performed on sell-out tours with indie-darlings The Wombats and a Vice Magazine tour with The Noisettes and Goodbooks, the band are now busy preparing to release their brand new single, 'Graphs Maps & Trees'.
From headline dates UK-wide to the O2 Wireless festival, and entertaining the kids with secret gigs in their own front rooms, Assembly Now have been woo-ing fans the length and breadth of the country with their brilliant indie-pop nuggets. Their single launch party for 'Leigh-On-Sea' was a sold-out smash that saw queues round the block, fans breaking in through windows and sneaking in back doors.
They aren't only burning down the house on the live front though. The band won Steve Lamacq's BBC 6Music 'Rebel Playlist' not once, but twice. The second time with a huge 56% of listener's votes. A shocked Steve Lamacq said it was "more votes than we've ever had in a playlist poll!" Yes – that's a record. Even Hollyoaks decided to get on the case by having debut single 'It's Magnetic' as a scene soundtrack. All this for an unsigned band? Phew!
And it's still not time to relax. With studio man John Fortis (Razorlight, Art Brut, Laura Marling) on knob-twiddling duty, 'Graphs, Maps and Trees' is hitting the shelves this August. Along with an extremely tongue-in-cheek video by Fear Of Flying's hotshot director James Appleton, it's a Pop Art summer medley of gloriously optimistic proportions.Listen on Myspace
