Premiere: The Roves – ‘Fixing To Burn”

The Roves are back! The Roves return with ‘The Big Silver’ EP following on from the success of their last single ‘Hey Little Man’ which cracked the door open at 6 Music and found fans in Gideon Coe, Iggy Pop, Bobby Gillespie, Stephen Pastel and with radio DJs from Madrid to Austin. The Roves were back at KONK studios in London to record and mix the four songs on ‘The Big Silver’ and working again with engineer Josh Green they have pushed their sound and songwriting further than on any release so far.

The EP will be released physically as a 12” vinyl & Digital. The lead track ‘Fixing To Burn’ precedes the EP release and has a new video accompaniment produced by Tom from the band which premiers exclusively here today!

KAIN ‘All My Heroes’

On Friday 22nd May El Rancho Records release ‘All My Heroes’, a newly recorded acoustic version of the song by long gone and much loved Glasgow band KAIN. The track was recorded in April, in isolation and in three locations by founding members Ian Crawford (Vocals) and Jon Yuill (Guitar) and Gordon Wyper (Trumpet). What began as a long distance catch up (Sweden-Scotland) on Facebook led to a collective feeling that this song, a live favourite, had a certain resonance, one which people may take some strength from in these difficult times.

This is the second single to ever be released by the band who had a notorious run on the Scottish music scene in the early 2000’s. After the release of their first single ‘Baby Am Amazed’ KAIN went on to sign a major record deal with Warner Brothers only to find every ill fated music industry cliche awaiting them! ‘All My Heroes’ will be available from the El Rancho’s Bandcamp

All money raised from the single will go directly to the Glasgow NW Food Bank
