RELEASED ON O GENESIS – 4TH FEBRUARY 2014
London four piece, Hatcham Social are set to release their new album on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis label on the 4th of February 2014.
‘Cutting Up The Present Leaks Out The Future’, the follow up to last year’s ‘About Girls’ album, is the band’s third long player and without doubt their most accomplished set of songs to date. Recorded and self produced in their own studio in Wales, the new album features ten stunning tracks including recent download ‘More Power To Live’ and forthcoming single ‘Lion With A Laser Gun’ which is accompanied by a video by founding member of The Jesus and Mary Chain and award winning director Douglas Hart.
Listen to ‘More Power To Live’:
Formed a few years ago by siblings Toby Kidd (vocals, guitar) and Finn Kidd (drums, vocals) they initially made their name with a string of catchy and collectable sevens on labels such as Loog, Waks and Fierce Panda prior to the release of 2009’s debut album ‘You Dig The Tunnel, I’ll Hide The Soil’. The Hatcham line up was bolstered by the addition of David Claxton (guitar) and Riley Difford (bass) and they released their aforementioned second album ‘About Girls’ which saw them deliver a more punkier and dynamic sound. The last eighteen months has seen them host their own club night, produce a host of other bands, launch a cassette label and tour the UK and Europe as support and backing band to Tim Burgess on his year long solo tour.
2014 will see Hatcham Social return in their own right and to coincide with the release of ‘Cutting Up The Present Leaks Out The Future’ they will set off on extensive UK and European tours. More dates will be announced in the very near future.
