To celebrate its 15th anniversary, the band are set to release 1000 special edition double LPs of their seminal debut album Well Well Well, a record which has never before been pressed on vinyl.

Lead singer Joe Carnall is excited for the release. He said, “I get at least one request a week on social media for Well Well Well to be released on vinyl. I think many of our fans see it as a hole in their collection so it will be nice to help them complete the set. That album means so much to people” he explained. Asked why the record wasn’t released on wax the first time around, Carnall admitted that he “genuinely didn’t know. 2006 was perhaps the early days of the ‘vinyl revival’ and so maybe the record company thought it wasn’t worth the effort – idiots.”

To coincide with the release, the band will play eight special shows in their favourite UK venues – performing Well Well Well in full alongside other live tracks from their back catalogue.

Predictably, Carnall says that the band can’t wait to get on stage together again. “Nothing comes close to live music. It will be one of those sets where I’ll hardly have to sing. It’s going to be electric, particularly after the shit show of the past 18 months.”
