We have news about our new single "Sleep", the first release from our second album "Mad By Moonlight".
You can have the first listen of it on our official Soundcloud page (http://soundcloud.com/thomastantrum) taken from the 6music play by Marc Riley the other night. Have a listen and don't forget to follow us on Soundcloud too. We'll be
posting more music there very soon....
AND you can hear another track from the album, "Cold Gold", thanks to the nice people at Music Week and their Soundcloud.
Listen to it here - http://soundcloud.com/music-week/thomas-tantrum-cold-gold.
Let us know what you think of both songs!
Since the release of our first album in late 2008, we enlisted new drummer Dave Wade Brown and have been locked away writing the “difficult second album” for forever it seems. There is a definite shift in style since our first album.
We think the tracks are more melodic and melancholy, yet still upbeat and happy if that's possible? Both “Sleep” and the album were produced by our long term collaborator Rik MacNamara.
Inbetween writing and recording we've managed to play some shows though including a tour with the lovely Band Of Skulls and also some low key appearances at festivals such as Truck and Offset. Hopefully there will be a lot more of that coming
Over Christmas we spent a few days at Peter Gabriel's studio in Bath and recorded an ep entitled “Birdsong” which is still available to download FREE from here - www.thomastantrum.co.uk. All you have to do is sign up for the mailing list and
then that way we can keep you up to date with the release and any shows or tours.
We're sorting out more gigs right now. We'll let you know when and where soon as we can, but in the meantime, we've confirmed March 10th at the Old Queen’s Head in London.
Thanks everyone :)
