The Birthday Suit’s second single All Of This Everything will be released on 17th March 2014 via Sing It Alone. The single was chosen by Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6Music listeners, with fans choosing between two tracks from the forthcoming album (A Hollow Hole Of Riches) - "All Of This Everything" and "Tonight Is Broken Hearted".
You can stream the single on our Soundcloud page.
A Bigger World was the first single released from the band’s forthcoming album, which featured Scott Hutchison from Frightened Rabbit. Since A Bigger World’s release, Rod has guested on Lamacq’s show twice and the single made the XFM evening playlist with support from Danielle Perry.
With their first two albums, Rod was finding his feet after Idlewild announced their indefinite hiatus but the tracks found on A Hollow Hole Of Riches are more cohesive. The Birthday Suit are very much in keeping with Scotland’s finest musical exports, writing tunes that are exciting and diverse, songs brewed with heart and passion, which tell stories, hearts on sleeves for all to see.
Physical and digital promos are available for radio and press. The band are also available for interviews.
The Fire And I follow up the recently released 'Double Kamikaze' with another free download - album track 'Ruined//Graffitied', taken from the bands second album, Double Kamikaze, and released on 10th March via CarCrash Records.
On 'Ruined//Graffitied', The Fire And I showcase the skills that scored their album a 7/10 review in Rock Sound Magazine. Stoner-rock influences are laced throughout the track as dirty, heavy guitar takes centre stage aided by distorted vocals and a snapping, forceful drum beat.

The Scottish based two piece, comprised of bassist Gordon Love and drummer Hooligan Sadikson, were originally four. However, rather than finding new members, the pair decided to keep their minimalist bass / drums set-up, sharing vocals. Their acclaimed live performances have become a thing of legend on the live circuit - adrenaline-fuelled, no holds barred spectacles, their tracks burst to life on stage.
This high-octane noise is felt throughout the album. Opener ‘Devil Damned Thoughts’ is purely instrumental, showcasing the band’s love of the riff; there are hints of CKY meets That Fucking Tank - an exciting start and you can almost feel the sweat pouring from the speakers. Title track ‘Double Kamikaze’ could easily have made Queens of the Stone Age’s 1998 self-titled debut - unapologetic dirty rock. However, When The Fire And I calm the pace, their softer underbelly also has great potential - there are real shades of light on ‘Coming Loose’ akin to early Biffy Clyro’s quieter moments. Nevertheless, they don’t stay quiet for long, and the album is pure heart-pounding alt-rock.
Since their debut album Stampede Finale, the band have been honing their sound, with their aforementioned live performances being their ace in the hole and, as well as sharing a stage with Biffy Clyro, they’ve also headlined the T in the Park T-Break stage. Having picked up support from the likes of the aforementioned Rock Sound, Artrocker Magazine, Mad Mackerel and Jim Gellatly, the band are now ready to unveil Double Kamikaze as well as continuing their tour of the UK in March before heading off to Europe.
Double Kamikaze will be released on CarCrash Records on 10th March 2014.
We Came From Wolves announce the release of their second EP Paradise Place, available today via Saraseto Records.
The video for EP title track, "Paradise Place", was recently premiered as an exclusive with The Skinny. You can also check it out via the band's YouTube channel.
The track is also available as a free download via the ABoF Soundcloud page.
In just four perfectly formed tracks, the band manage to display different shades of songwriting that flits from the cerebral opening title track, ‘Paradise Place’ to the youthfully exuberant, Biffy Clyro-esque ‘A Bastard Son, A Brother To None’ - a track that you’ll find hard not to belt out as the band lead you into one of the catchiest choruses you’ll hear in a while. Elsewhere on the EP there are hints of contemporaries Kids In Glass Houses and Twin Atlantic - big epic rock hooks being We Came From Wolves’ trademark.
With support already coming from Rock Sound, BBC Radio 1’s Ally McCrae, Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly and mentions on Drowned in Sound and strong local support in Scotland, We Came From Wolves are ready to rock 2014.
Paradise Place is out now via Saraseto Records and available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.
