Scottish rockers Idlewild set for Belfast

IdlewildScottish indie rockers Idlewild have announced their return to Belfast’s Limelight 2 on 20th March 2015.

After five years away, Scottish alternative rock band Idlewild return with new album Everything Ever Written, set for release on 9th February 2015.
The band’s eighth studio recording represents a new chapter, both personally and creatively. Produced by the band’s guitarist Rod Jones and mixed by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.) whom they collaborated with on their 2002 release The Remote Part and augmented by new members Luciano Rossi (piano, organ & vocals) and Andrew Mitchell (bass, guitar & vocals), Everything Ever Written is Idlewild’s most eclectic output to date. The album features twelve tracks of alternative rock woven together from strands of Scottish folk, Americana & Hebridean psychedelia.

“The album was predominantly written on the Isle of Mull”, vocalist Roddy Woomble explains. “The record soundtracks a period of transition. Working without time constraints gave the whole thing a creative freedom. Idlewild is a new band to me now; I’m excited for the future.”

Lead track ‘Collect Yourself’ premiered on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music show on November 3rd 2014 and is available as an immediate download exclusively with album pre-orders.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am from all usual outlets priced £17.50 excluding fees.
