JAMES BONDING! James Tickets

First [b]Stereophonics[/b], now the Mancunian rockers.Seems no one wants to play in stadiums or arenas anymore...

James are abandoning stadiums to test-drive material for their forthcoming album, tentatively titled 'WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK', on a tour of medium-sized venues next month, nme.com can reveal.

The band are currently recording the album, due out in April, with their long-time producer Brian Eno and former Blur producer Stephen Street.

Regarding the tour, Guitarist Saul Davies told nme.com: "It's a deliberate move on our part. Basically it's come out of the fact that we started work on our next album and we decided we should do something we haven't done since we did 'Laid', which is play the songs out on the road before we record them.

"I'm really looking forward to it cos' they could potentially be quite special shows. I think a band like us that's been going on so long, it's really necessary to invent a way of performing on [a special] occasion. It's very easy for us to play big venues and take the cash and go away. "

He added: "Being on top of people where the communication with audience is intense I think will [make it] much easier to play these tunes and dig in and find out what they're about really."

James have written 25 new songs for their forthcoming album including 'Coffee On Toast', 'Please To Meet You', 'Gaudi', 'Senorita', and 'Nicola Louder'.

James are on tour at: Leeds University (October 21) Liverpool Royal Court (22) Edinburgh Corn Exchange (23) Bristol Colston Hall (25), Exeter University (26) Poole Arts Centre (27) Blackpool Empress Ballroom (November 2) Grimsby Auditorium (3) Norwich UEA (4) Sheffield City Hall (6) Nottingham Rock City (7) London Brixton Academy (8)
