After nine months of constant recording in the band’s south London studio hideaway, where they were competing with flash floods, mice infestations and exploding amps, the band’s fourth album, creatively titled Farrah, is coming out in Japan this week on brand new label Fabtone!
The Japan-only version of the album features 13 brand new tracks with a special Japan-only song, “Slow Down”. There’s also a guest key-tar solo by Ben Romans from The Click Five on the track “Heavy Metal” (currently on the Farrah MySpace player).
Press and radio have already highly praised the album, with “Stereotypes” (one of the key tracks) creating waves on Japanese radio. The album is due to hit the rest of the world in autumn, 2009.
