Nottingham trio Kagoule have announce details of their debut album Urth alongside their latest single ‘Made of Concrete’.
‘Made of Concrete’ sees the band take a different turn in comparison to their previous releases, furthermore bassist has taken control of lead vocals.
“It came as a trapped sound in a Boss delay pedal box. Someone at the factory must’ve been humming in the right direction at the right time, the waves slipped through and the cardboard door sealed behind them,” guitarist Cai said.
“It journeyed over sea and land, benumbed by fear until I freed it from its torture and gave it a home (I think that’s how sound works right?) It was one of the first songs I wrote for Kagoule.
“I think I was 15. After the initial “Check out what this pedal can do” it hasn’t changed much, apart from the fact Lucy won the rights to sing it from me over a heated Beyblade tournament.”
Kagoule plan to celebrate the release of Urth with a series of in store performances with Rough Trade as well as a different number of UK dates which can be found below.
