The Travelling Band return with a new EP, ‘Hands Up’ and it serves up a taste of what’s to come. Original ingredients are maintained, intricate guitar lines and infectious rhythms interact with expansive chord structures and subtle tempo changes.
The EP is available on a ‘pay what you want’ basis here: http://thetravellingband.bandcamp.com
Having spent the first half of 2012 writing followed by a summer of UK and European festival dates, the group successfully crowd-funded their new album ‘The Big Defreeze’ via Pledge Music, and quickly hit their target thanks to their enthusiastic fan-base. The new album, was produced by multi platinum selling producer Iestyn Polson (David Gray, Patti Smith, David Bowie, Simple Kid), recorded at the turn of the year at The Church Studios in Crouch End, London.
The video is directed by Rudy Riveron Sanchez from AlmostFilm Productions. He said “The character is interacting with the natural elements each, fire, air, water and responding to the song…visually poetic and atmospheric”
The guys are in the middle of a successful 24-date UK tour, which was preceded by a live session on Marc Riley’s BBC 6 Music show on Monday February 25th.
The Travelling Band are:
Jo Dudderidge (Vocals, Guitars, Keys)
