Screaming Lights Announce Details of the Release of Their Debut Album

Liverpool's Screaming Lights have announced details of the release of their debut album. Like Angels will be released through Anti on Monday 5th October 2009. The tracklisting for the 11-track album is as follows:

1. Volts 2. 21st Century 3. Hello Tomorrow 4. Rainmaker 5. Exit Wound 6. Air In A Lung 7. Champagne Socialist 8. Princess 9. Anymore 10. Glow 11. Butterflies

Recorded with Dan Grech at the Hospital Studio in London's Covent Garden and Parr Street in Liverpool during the Spring of '09, the album will be preceded by a single, "Hello Tomorrow," which will released on September 28th.

The band have also announced a number of festival appearances over the summer and a headline tour in October. The full list of dates are as follows:

AUGUST 22nd Stafford V Festival 23rd Chelmsford V Festival 29th Leeds Leeds Festival 30th Reading Reading Festival

OCTOBER 5th Cardiff 10 Feet Tall 6th Kidderminster Tap House 7th Reading Oakford Arms 8th Newcastle World Headquarters 9th Glasgow King Tuts 10th Wakefield Escobar

Gloriously out-of-step and isolated from many of their contemporaries, Screaming Lights are very much a product of their home-town. Steeped in that time-honoured Scouse tradition of forward-thinking, bloody-minded psychedelia, Like Angels shares a fair bit with the likes of fellow Mersey pop-pranksters such as The Teardrops or The Bunnymen.

Very adventurous yet still anchored in that classic Liverpudlian song-writing tradition, the 11-tracks of the album sound far more accomplished then one would expect on a debut album from band just out of school. A truly innovative and exciting debut.

Screaming Lights are: Alan Breen (bass), James Connor (drums), Max Goldberg (guitar) & James Treadell (vocals / guitar).
