To coincide with their UK tour which starts this Sunday in Edinburgh, The Amazing Snakeheads will release a brand new track entitled ‘Can’t Let You Go’, on 1st December 2014. The track was recorded in London with the legendary producer, Clive Langer (Madness, The Teardrop Explodes, Elvis Costello, Morrissey) and is the first release since their debut album, Amphetamine Ballads, earlier this year.
‘Can’t Let You Go’ will be available on 1st December 2014 on 7” (RUG625) backed with another new track, ‘The Virgin Mary’. Pre-order it HERE. The track will also be available on the same date as a Digital Bundle (RUG625D1) with the tracks ‘The Virgin Mary’ and ‘Jesus Freaks 2’. ‘Can’t Let You Go’ is available Digitally now as a single track, HERE.
Following tour dates with Jack White and many festival appearances over the summer including a headline slot on the BBC Introducing stage at T In The Park, The Amazing Snakeheads are currently preparing for a full UK tour which includes their biggest London show to date at The Electric Ballroom on the 23rd October.
The band’s debut album, Amphetamine Ballads, which saw its UK release in April, was featured on Pitchfork as their Advance Stream to coincide with the US release. A monument to the redemptive powers of rock 'n' roll - full of rage, romance and dark humour - Amphetamine Ballads is an uncompromising, astonishingly visceral record. Purchase it from Dom Mart HERE or from iTunes HERE.
