Urgent London indie lads, The Rakes, are to release their debut LP 'Capture/Release' this summer.
Produced by rather-famous-now twiddler Paul Epworth, the album was recorded through March and April this year, and sounds rather ace - from the bits that we've heard.
The record is released via V2, the band's new home on August 8th.
On top of that, the band are off on a victory jaunt of some major cities at the same time:
9th - Manchester, Academy 3
10th - London, Mean Fiddler
11th - Birmingham, Academy 2
Support on the tour will come from Battle and hot new things Kubichek!
