As you will perhaps have seen we had set the release date for our 4th album: “Don’t Blame Yourself” for May 15. Not unsurprisingly, the wonderful people at our distributor, Cherry Red, told us a few weeks ago that, with no record shops open and shipping lines disrupted, they aren’t releasing any new records in May.
They are therefore putting the physical release back to a date yet to be determined.
That gave us a few headaches. Normally you would chose the same date it comes out on Spotify/Apple Music etc to get records in the shops and on Amazon etc. You’d have a launch show around that date and start bugging press and radio in the run up.
But, we are so desperate to get this great album out that we are going to stick to May 15.
This means that, on that date, it won’t be available in shops or online physical sellers but it will be on Spotify etc (if you want to make sure you are notified by Spotify please follow us there on this page: https://open.spotify.com/artist/15VNyCsUxdJPr3huzwfToi?si=VYVnImkWT4Km3EkgDAyJOw).
If you want an LP or CD you can preorder through our shop here: https://duncanreidandthebigheads.com/pre-order-our-4th-album-dont-blame-yourself/ and we’ll get them out to you. Or you can buy through our Bandcamp page https://duncanreidandthebigheads.bandcamp.com/ (which is the same except they charge us 10% to tell us where to send stuff -downloading there is better for us than iTunes etc though).
If you pledged up front for the album thank you so much for doing so and we will get your stuff out to you in advance when we get them this month.
We are, on the other hand, putting the release show back from May 14 to July 9. A: it’s looking increasingly unlikely things will be back to some form of normality by May 14 and B: July 9 is my birthday so that’ll be fun.
If you’ve bought tickets already they will be valid for the new date and if you want one they can be bought here: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/496998
On a final note, if you have a blog, radio show, magazine etc please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for our release pack, interview requests etc and we’ll be delighted to serve you.
That’s all. As you were. Back to song writing and potato planting!
