THE STRYPES: Debut album – ‘Snapshot’ Set For September 9th via Virgin EMI

Just under a year after they emerged with their first release – ‘Young, Gifted & Blue’, a set of vintage R’n’B covers – The Strypes are set to crown their phenomenal rise with the release of their debut full-length album – ‘Snapshot’, available from September 9th on Virgin EMI.

Few bands have rocketed in 2013 as The Strypes have. Entering the year on the back of praise for ‘Young, Gifted & Blue’ and swelling excitement surrounding their astonishingly explosive live shows, The Strypes released their major label debut single – ‘Blue Collar Jane’ – in April, shortly before playing a show at the legendary 100 Club in London, tickets for which sold out within the space of an hour.

They’ve since continued to tour extensively, including a set on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury that saw the tent completely packed out. The Strypes will extend their reach even further this winter when they embark on a stadium tour of the UK and Europe with the Arctic Monkeys, taking in some of the continent’s premiere venues.

‘Snapshot’ – an electrifying collage of The Strypes’ own material and some of the much-loved throwback covers that pepper their live sets – will be released on September 9th via Virgin EMI.
