It’s been a couple of months since there’s been a news update on this site so here it is! First off, the official vinyl/digital version of the new album, You Never Know What Might Come Next, which was set for a June release, has been delayed to number of backlogs prevalent in the vinyl pressing industry these days. The record is now currently in the manufacturing stage and there will be an official announcement through the label Exhibition in the near future as well as pre-order information. So sit tight! At this point it’s likely a late summer release.
In the meantime you can still order the limited edition CD version of which there are still copies left.
A promotional video for the title track is done and ready to go and will have a premiere once the release information on the album is out.
There are tour dates in the UK and Europe for the autumn of 2015 in the works and more news on that will be announced soon.
In the meantime, a re-worked version of the track “Minimum” by Vancouver synthpop duo Sur Une Plage premiered in the last few days and is available as a free download! Sur Une Plage is Joshua Wells and Colin McKill, the former with whom also plays in Black Mountain and Lightning Dust — Josh and myself were also in the post-punk band Radio Berlin a good number of years ago so it’s been a great pleasure to join up again on this track. Josh also contributes some production skills on the alternate version of the title track from You Never Know What Might Come Next, available as a bonus on the limited edition CD version.
That’s it for now! Soft Riot will be playing a couple local Sheffield dates this summer, mainly for the purpose of trying out a new live set-up that will be rolled out for future dates starting the fall. Thanks for your support.
