The band unveil yet more material from 'Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants To Leave' recordings.
If you loved The Twilight Sad's last album (if you're anyone, that is) then you'll be pleased to know that they are bringing it back with an album of stripped back renditions of the tracks, a cover and some other little extras for Autumn 2015. Yeah, so 'Óran Mór' is not a 'new' new album, but it's a very welcome addition to their stellar back catalogue.
The Twilight Sad release 'Oran Mor' in full this October
In October 2014, The Twilight Sad released 'Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants To Leave' and probably doubled their fanbase with it. It became one of the most hugely acclaimed albums of the year and featured awesome tracks like 'I Could Give You All That You Don't Want' and 'It Never Was the Same'. They initially released 'Óran Mór' as an EP at the same time as 'NWTBHANWTL', as they geared up to head out on tour, but now they've compiled all the fun bonus content together in an extended re-release.
The album was recorded in the place it was named after; Glasgow's Òran Mór auditorium; and includes not only re-works of the original tracks, but also a cover of Arthur Russell's song 'I Couldn't Say It To Your Face' and the b-side 'The Airport'.
Whilst they are not currently on a tour schedule, The Twilight Sad continue to play various gigs across the continent; their upcoming dates include a show in Zurich on Saturday (August 15th), in Linz, Austria in November and at Glasgow's Barrowland Ballroom in December.
'Óran Mór' will be released on October 16th 2015 through Fat Cat Records.
