The Ting Tings Plan To Showcase New Album At Intimate Venues

The Ting Tings have announced they plan to showcase their forthcoming new album at “smallish-sized venues” next year.

The follow-up to the duo's 2008 album 'We Started Nothing' is still waiting to be named with a release planned for early next year. The new material is expected to be a change of direction for the duo who have been away recording tracks in German city Berlin last Christmas. Talking to BBC’s Newsbeat, singer Katie White revealed the new record was “"very different to the first one” and said, “It's still us and it's still pop. It's just huge."

Planning to give the new album its first live airing at some intimate venues, singer Kate White and drummer Jules de Martino explained that they would like to use the low-key shows to reconnect with their audience. Speaking to Gigwise, the drummer said,

“We really want to concentrate on doing smallish-sized venues – we really love doing that. Of course playing around the world in big venues has been fantastic, but we're missing how we started – in thousand to two-thousands seaters – and we're really trying to plot a way around Europe so that we can do that. It's really good fun for a band to do that, you really connect to your audience.”

The Ting Tings are currenly rehearsing with new musicians they met while on tour promoting their debut album 'We Started Nothing'. The duo plan to bring the new band members on the road next year.

'Hands', the first single to be released from The Ting Tings' new album, is out later next month on October 11th.

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
