The Pipettes sign US deal

Their debut album finally sees a Stateside release

The Pipettes have joined up with Interscope Records/Cherrytree to release their debut album Stateside later this year, a representative from the label confirmed today (February 27).

‘We Are The Pipettes’ was released in the UK last July and should finally hit American shores this summer.

As previously announced, the Brighton trio will be making their first tour of the US beginning next month, playing a sold-out date at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on March 13 opening for Amy Winehouse.


They’ll also play several showcases at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival March 14-18. The band are expected to announce a Los Angeles date shortly.
