Hey everyone!!! TELLISON are finally back!!! Phew….it’s all going to be alright….it’s all going to be alright!
The wonderful London based 4 piece TELLISON have now signed a deal with Alcopop Records (Johnny Foreigner, Brawlers, Fight Like Apes) and can now finally announce their first new material for over 4 years (charity Christmas songs, aside), with comeback single ‘Tact Is Dead’, which will be given away for free today (Weds 4th March), from this link: www.tellison.co.uk
Watch the video for ‘Tact Is Dead’ here
The song had its very first airing and debut last night on Radio 1 with the legend Huw Stevens – www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05363b7
Following their 2nd album ‘The Wages of Fear’ (released in 2011), the band toured non stop, worked a million terrible jobs, got health insurance and gym memberships and even dental, got married, started side projects, released two Christmas singles (with all money donated going to suicide-prevention charity CALM), got passed over for promotions and laid off, and spent a great deal of time writing and recording the brilliant and beautiful songs that make up their new album. ‘Tact is Dead’ is the first fruit of their much laboured-over musical return, with a second single ‘Boy’ to be announced in the coming few weeks (tying in with record Store Day).
More news on TELLISON’S forthcoming 3rd album, coming soon.
The band will also celebrate the new single ‘Tact Is Dead’ (official release date April 27th) with a small headline run across the UK, including a London show at Oslo in Hackney on April 30th. The band have also confirmed a few summer festivals including Handmade and 2000 Trees, with many more to be announced in the coming weeks. All dates (confirmed and announced) below.
