Tribes frontman Johnny Lloyd has written a novella titled A Journey Through The Heart Of A Pig.

The book will be limited to 1,000 copies and is available to pre-order now (Jan 2). The book comes with illustrations by Hayden Kays and will be available in mid-January. A synopsis of the novella published on the official website, reads:

"1988. With his mother video-taping every channel, Martin Gardner's satellite is launched into space. Its purpose, to reach further than ever before and bring back proof, if any, that a Heaven exists. With the world still half asleep, its days roll into night and its children go missing. Martin and his best friend Ronnie, unable to explain what is happening, are thrust ever deeper into danger. It seems all is lost when an old man and his hounds begin their hunt for the man who made the sky fall."

Meanwhile, Tribes recently confirmed that their new album 'Wish To Scream' will be released in May 2013.

The band have also unveiled a brand new track 'Wrapped Up In A Carpet' which can be downloaded from their website. Tribes have been recording the follow-up to their 2012 debut 'Baby' in Los Angeles' Sound City Studios, where the likes of Nirvana's 'Nevermind' and Arctic Monkeys' 'Suck It And See' were made.

Tribes have also announced a string of live dates for early 2013. They will play:

Hull, Fruit (January 30)
Dunfermline, PJ's (31)
Preson, 53 Degree's (February 1)
Bedford, Esquires (2)
Gloucester, Guildhall (4)
Guilford, Boileroom (5)
