New album news from Delays, Get Cape and REM

By on Sunday, 10th February 2008 at 7:28 pm

Now, we all know that I go on and on and on about one of my favourite bands, Delays. They’ve already announced a new tour starting this Thursday in Wolverhampton, and now they’ve announced the release dates for their lead single and album release. “Everything’s The Rush” will be released on Monday 28th April around the UK, with lead single “Hooray” being out a week before on Monday 21st April. The album will be their first for Fiction records, and will hopefully be their breakthrough effort. There’s a preview of Hooray on their myspace page now, and their blog entry announcing their album dates is here.

R.E.M. LiveMeanwhile, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. has a new album, “Searching For The Hows And Whys” out on 10th March. I knew that 21 year old Sam Duckworth had a new album out in the early half of this year, but not this soon, so this makes me very happy. The tracks are sounding good – get a free download of Find The Time here. The video is here for those of you that are a bit more visually inclined.

Finally, there’s been a lot of hype about R.E.M.‘s return around the blogoshphere this week, with Accelerate being announced as arriving on 31st March here in the UK. First single “Supernatural Superserious” sounds pretty good – a return to their rocky roots, and a definite positive step forward from their rather weak “Around The Sun”.

Expect to hear a lot more about each of these three albums over the  coming weeks here on There Goes The Fear.
