Glasvegas frontman James Allan has revealed the Scottish band have demoed ‘half an album’s worth’ of new material, and are ready to debut the tracks on their forthcoming UK tour.
“We’ve demoed about half an album’s worth so far,” Allan told NME. “We’ll be playing some of these for the first time during the April tour.”
Allan also discussed his favourite Glasgow-inspired songs after his hometown was revealed last week to have featured in the titles of more songs than any other city.
“There are lots to choose from,” he said. “‘I Wish I Was In Glasgow’ by Billy Connolly, ‘Tinseltown In the Rain’ by The Blue Nile, ‘Killermont Street’ by Aztec Camera and ‘Dylan In The Movies’ by Belle and Sebastian. But at the weekends there is one that is champion in the pubs here, ‘Super Trouper’ by Abba.”
Glasvegas’ short UK tour will kick off on April 3rd at London’s Relentless Garage. The group will then move on to the Liverpool O2 Academy on April 4th, and Glasgow’s Classic Grand on the 5th.Just Published:
