Idlewild leave label

Scots band quit EMI/Parlophone

Idlewild have “decided it was time to move on” and have left their record label EMI/Parlophone after eight years and four albums.

This follows a diary posting by singer Roddy Woomble stating that he had recently got married – “(it) was the best thing I’ve done with my life. I don’t know you so I won’t go into the details. But it was wonderful”.

The band’s last album was ‘Warning/Promises’ which was released earlier this year, and followed the 2002 release of ‘The Remote Part’.
