Airship Announce New Single And UK Dates May 2011

Airship are pleased to announce details of their new single for release this summer, and a spate of live shows.

The Manchester quartet will release 'Kids' through Play It Again Sam on the 13th June 2011. It is taken from their forthcoming debut album due in the Autumn.

The band will also open a couple of UK shows for Ra Ra Riot in London and Manchester, and are already confirmed for a handful of UK festival dates too leading them into the Summer.

It'll come as a surprise to many who believe that bands still exist in a whirlwind of instant hype, but it's still possible to develop outside the spotlight.

Since forming in 2008, Airship have notched up acclaimed support tours with Editors, Biffy Clyro, The Joy Formidable and Frightened Rabbit. A self-released EP last year received rave reviews, but such was their resilience to stay in the shadows until fully ready, that the band hit their city bunker and refused to re-surface until an album's worth of material was readied.

Their determination to succeed in the right way has paid off with debut album, 'Stuck In This Ocean' receiving its finishing touches now. Still with an average age of just 22, the quartet's sound has progressed from an already remarkable start, their songs becoming more direct and their sound ever more open and ambitious from constant touring.

'Kids' is Airship's first single proper and although the band are adamant that the album should be listened to as a whole body of work, there is no denying that the propulsive rhythms and explosive chorus is an exciting, urgent introduction to this young gang.
