Dropkick's new album "Abelay Hotel" will be released on 12th September on Sound Asleep Records of Sweden. I think it's our 9th album but it's definitely not our 9th best one. I hope not anyway.The CD is available to order now from our website www.dropkickmusic.co.uk for £6.49 including postage to anywhere in the world. If you'd rather not clutter up your house with useless plastic junk or just cannot wait another 10 days to get the CD, you can already download the album from all the usual places, including iTunes, eMusic, Amazon and Napster. And if you'd rather try before you buy, you can also listen to the album in full on the new-fangled music player thingy on our website or at www.last.fm/music/Dropkick/Abelay%2BHotel.
To coincide with the release, we're playing a few gigs around Scotland. Here's the list of places and times to avoid:
Thu 3rd Sept @ 13th Note, Glasgow. Support from The Sweetheart Revue. 8.30pm. £5.
Fri 4th Sept @ Twa Tams, Perth. 10pm. Free entry.
Sat 5th Sept @ The Seaforth, Ullapool. 10pm. Free entry.
Sat 12th Sept @ Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh. ALBUM LAUNCH GIG. Support from Andy Tucker and The Young Spooks. Doors 7pm (early show). £5 entry includes a free CD!
Sat 19th Sept @ Aikman's, St Andrews. 9.30pm. Free entry.
OK, that's enough self-promotion for now. Hope you all enjoy the new album!
