The Spinto Band have announced a string of US tour dates as well as streaming two new songs
on the run up to their upcoming EP release.
Titled ‘Slim And Slender’ the 4 track EP will be released towards the end of their tour on October 6.
Coming out on 10” vinyl and digital download those who want a preview of the EP, can head over to the band’s Myspace where they have just uploaded two songs titled ‘Jackhammer’ and ‘Brazil‘.
Whilst the first song is new material, the second track is a cover from a song on Terry Gilliam’s film of the same name.
Talking about the ‘Brazil‘ cover, singer Nick Krill said on their record labels website.
“Brazil has been a long time classic amongst the band,” He added.
“I first heard it in the film and have overheard Jeff and Tom and others playing the melody on different instruments over the years. The song brings to mind flying high above a city with angel wings sprouting from my back.”
The band, are due to follow up from their 2008 album ‘Moonwink’ some time in 2010, with the ‘Slim And Slender’ EP acting as a sneak peak on what to expect from their next album.
