‘PART TIME SPIES’ ALBUM RELEASE DATE CONFIRMED AND EUROPEAN AND UK TOUR WITH WHITE LIES
Following the release of new single ‘Dirty World’, currently enjoying plays on Radio 2 – see the video
Bristol five piece The Ramona Flowers have announced details of their second album ‘Part Time Spies’ due for release on 9th September 2016 for Distiller Records. The band have also been confirmed as support to While Lies for their European and UK dates later this year, which follows several dates with Stereophonics this summer.
Co-produced alongside Friendly Fires and Passion Pit collaborator Chris Zane, the record was recorded late 2015 at The Distillery Studios in Bath.
It is a record surging with human warmth, filled with songs about the things that make life tick: death, rising rents, narcissism, broken relationships, selfies, the end of privacy, drunken nights out and hungover mornings in. It is a record irrevocably now and of this moment, filled with songs that will make you hug your friends, console your friends and dance with your friends. With tracks like ‘Skies Turn Gold’ they approached it as a “classic four on the floor dance track”, where as ‘My Wierdo’ started life on the piano. The slow-building epic-rocker ‘Sharks’ reveals a hugely personal experience from Steve Bird losing his father to a brain tumour.
The Ramona Flowers are: Steve Bird (vocals), Sam James (guitar), Wayne Jones (bass), Dave Betts (keyboards, guitar), Ed Gallimore (drums).
