DOVES will release a new single, ‘THE MAN WHO TOLD EVERYTHING’ around the time of their biggest ever UK tour, set for autumn.
Taken from the band’s debut album ‘Lost Souls’, the new single could feature new Doves songs ‘New York’ and ‘Blue Water’ which have featured in recent live sets by the band. The band have also recorded ‘filmic’ versions of songs from ‘Lost Souls’.
Following the tour, Doves will start work on their second album Speaking of the tour, Doves singer Andy Williams told nme.com: “The venue size seems to have stepped up, it’s good not to be playing the back of pubs any more. It’s what we’ve always wanted really. We’ve been to places we’ve never been to before.
“We’ve got loads of new songs but it’s going to be the top of next year before we really get stuck into the next album.”
The tour calls at: Cambridge Junction (October 30) Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (31) Norwich Waterfront (November 1) Liverpool L2 (3) Bristol Anson Rooms (4) Manchester Ritz (5) Leeds Metropolitan University (7) Newcastle University (9) Sheffield University (10)
They also play the Carling Weekend at Reading (August 25) and Leeds (28) before playing Witnness Festival at Fairyhouse Racecourse, near Dublin, on August 5. They also have a hometown gig at Manchester’s D.percussion-Waters Edge festival on August 12.
