With their second album, 'Ternion' set for release in January and an intimate show in December at The Garage selling out in minutes, We Have Band have announced full details of their upcoming 2012 UK tour.
Starting at Cargo in East London on the 15th of February, the band will tour the UK and Ireland, taking in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Brighton, Glasgow and Dublin before heading to the continent to play dates in France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Benelux, Sweden and beyond. All dates are listed in full below.
The album and tour will be preceded by a new single, 'Where Are Your People?' released digitally on Dec 4th. The single is backed with the band's cover versions of The Horrors' 'Still Life' (which recently spread across the blogs and hit The Hype Machine top 10, and had The Horrors themselves tweeting their appreciation) and Washed Out's 'Within and Without', prior to a second download bundle, including remixes from the band themselves, Walls and Eats Everything, on January 22nd.
Stream We Have Band's rework of The Horrors 'Still Life' A stylistic leap on from their debut album, 'Ternion' is an intensely personal album that manages to be both uplifting and melancholic with Word praising the band for their 'impressive command of musical atmospherics, sustaining a dark industrial heaviness over the whole record.'
The album will also be available in a deluxe edition featuring the band's own deconstruction of the record, 'Ternion Aside'. Released as a bonus disc with the physical CD edition of the album, 'Ternion Aside' will also make up part of the iTunes LP bundle, along with other exclusive content, including acoustic audio and video of the band performing album tracks acoustically.
Tom Wegg-Prosser from the band elaborates on the bonus disc: 'Ternion Aside' was inspired by The League Unlimited Orchestra's 'Love and Dancing' LP. The idea of taking component parts from an original album recording and re-imagining them - creating a new and unique piece of music from what already existed whilst trying not to take a conventional remix approach. The 1st 5 tracks from 'Ternion' all worked within this concept and we love the way the music becomes something else."
