We Have Band announce album and give away track.

When we hear We Have Band we go bananas, so news of an album full of dissipated bare-boned electro jams (hopefully) has us swaying and nodding with sublime joy like priestesses at a black mass or something.

I spoke to Darren about it a minute ago, and he said "We wrote most of the album a year and a half ago, and recorded it in Thomas and Didi's flats." He also said that there was quite a bit more depth and breath to the textures, rather than just ten "electro pop bangers". Gareth Jones, who handled post-production stuff, apparently maintained the feel of the live band, which is good, because something great about Oh and You Came Out is how erratic and live the singles sound. Unsurprisingly, they've been listening ESG, the Rapture, early LCD Soundsystem, and stuff from "just before the mad electro surge."

They play Koko tonight, and can also be seen at these dates and places.

30 - Buffalo, Cardiff

10 - Start The Bus, Bristol
11 - Fabric, London
