Research confirm single and tour

Band wanted to sound like Beach Boys but end like Tom Jones

Research confirm single and tour
The Research are set to release new single ‘The Way You Used To Smile’ on October 17.

The 'New Yorkshire' band recorded the track in America earlier in the year, and its' release will precede the band’s debut album, which is out in February next year.

“Our new single, 'The Way You Used to Smile', is taken from a collection of recordings we did with John McEntire in his Chicago studio,” explained singer Russell (The Disaster). “It is either bitter or sweet because that's the way it came out. It's my favourite song that we sing and I don't think I sang it very well, but I guess I never do.

"I wanted to sing it like Carl Wilson but my attempts sounded more like Tom Jones, so I sang it quieter and now I sound like my lungs hurt. Still, I think the drums sound cooler than Led Zeppelin, but you might not agree."

Meanwhile the band are set to mount a UK tour. They play:

Bradford St Georges Hall (Oct 14)
Nottingham Trent University Freshers Ball (17)
Cardiff Barfly (18)
London Barfly (19)
Birmingham Barfly (20)
Liverpool Carling Academy 2 (21)
Stoke The Underground (22)
Newcastle The Other Rooms (23)
London Garage (Nov 1/2)
Southampton Lennons (12)
