British Sea Power have announced the details of their upcoming five song EP and also posted one brand new song from said EP for you to download. Details (pulled directly from the press release), brand new song, and tour dates below.
- British Sea Power would like to announce the release of a new five-track EP - one that will combine a pre-school understanding of atomic theory with ancient wisdom in amplified rock music. Best of all, like the seagull which learned to shoplift crisps, you can get some of it for free.
The five-track Krankenhaus? EP will be released digitally on 8 October and will be download-able from the usual digital retail sites.
To further expand shopping opportunities, the Krankenhaus? EP will be released on CD in North American on 20 November. This low-key CD release will also feature two new BSP film shorts. The CD will also be available in November from the BSP website shop - and from the band's merchandise stall on tour. The full tracklisting, including the EP videos, is as follows.
Down On The Ground
Straight Down The Line
Water Tower (video)
The Spirit Of St Louis live at The Forum (video)
Down On The Ground and the full version of Atom will both feature on BSP's forthcoming third album. The other three tracks will be only available as downloads and on the CD version of the EP. But do not fear that BSP may be lugging dirty bombs and leaking polonium-210 as they play at Leeds Brudenell Social Club. Rather, the band's atomic ambition is to alchemically transmute the copper of our common experience to the true gold of the meaningful rock moment.
