AA single confirmed for Nov 20th
Touring UK this month
Tiny Rewards LP out now
“A contender for 2015’s most criminally overlooked album…songs of such heartbreaking beauty, they could make Guy Garvey cry” Sunday Times Culture
“This is their strongest record to date…the rewards it yields are colossal” Drowned In Sound
“A truly compelling album; building from a brilliant body of work which proceeded it and blazing toward an exciting tomorrow.” London In Stereo
Following the release of Admiral Fallow’s acclaimed third album Tiny Rewards earlier this year, the Glaswegian quintet are pleased to announced they will release ‘Happened in the Fall’ and ‘Buildings as Foreign’ as an AA-side single on November 20th.

To coincide with the release, the band will also be touring the UK including London’s Oslo and a string of dates in their native Scotland.
Admiral Fallow were formed in 2007 by a group of Glasgow-based music student mates (Louis Abbott and Phil Hague from Edinburgh; bassist Joe Rattray from Dundee; singer, flautist and keyboardist Sarah Hayes from Northumberland; clarinettist and keyboardist Kevin Brolly – the only genuine Glaswegian). They released their adored debut album, Boots Met My Face, in 2011 and its widely-acclaimed successor Tree Bursts In Snow the following year, before taking some time out to perfect this year’s Tiny Rewards; time the band saw as an opportunity for an 18th month experiment to do something different.
This is how a band once categorised as indie-folk (or nu-folk, or folk-rock) began on the path to Tiny Rewards, an album created largely on keyboards, on which acoustic instruments remain but are often unrecognisable, on which space matters as much as sound and with textures as rich as the melodies are moving.
