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.

As much as the difficult second album is a major hurdle to clear, reacting to a negative sophomore experience isn’t all fun and games either. The Ting Tings, who possess a contrary streak that is both admirable and, if you’re a label type, probably a little taxing, responded to the breakout success of That’s Not My Name with the decidedly radio-unfriendly ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ and promptly went it alone.
