This Many Boyfriends Announce Self Titled Debut Album Out October 8th 2012

Following the release of '(I Should Be A) Communist', fanzine single 'Starling' and triumphant support shows for The Cribs, This Many Boyfriends have announced that their long-awaited, self titled debut album will be released on October 8th through Angular Recording Co and they'll also hit the road for a headline UK tour.

Recorded and mixed by Ryan Jarman of The Cribs at Edwyn Collins' West Heath Studios in London across three intensive weekends, this album is This Many Boyfriends' love letter to their record collections, a tribute to the catchiest and most vibrant moments they could find amongst their most treasured post-punk, C86 and Motown 45s.

Their pop lust is often combined with a razor sharp wit. On the song 'I Don't Like You ('Cos You Don't Like The Pastels)', for instance, Richard muses: "I didn't leave when you said you didn't like Springsteen. I didn't even flinch when you said you hated the Go-Betweens. But what you said about Baby Honey was truly unforgivable."

Hearing these songs and reference points feels like being granted instant access to the best fanclub on earth. A club filled with people you can have a laugh with rather than lofty popstars who want to keep you at arms length. The band talk about being handed fanzines after gigs or getting into long conversations about indie records with people who've obviously heard the lyrics and felt a kinship with the band performing them.

This Many Boyfriends, you see, are a rare kind of band. Like the Smiths or Belle and Sebastian, they're a band that actually mean something. A band that feel like your band. Most importantly, they're a band you should hold close to your heart . then form your own group and write a song about them, obviously.

This Many Boyfriends will be playing the following shows:
