Candylion is now available in the UK and Europe! You can buy it via hmv, amazon uk and Rough Trade. There will be a corresponding US release in March through Connor Oberst's label Saddle Creek. This release will feature a 4 lp (one side etched) vinyl release.
NEW SFA ALBUMS FOR '07 - 10/01/2007There is a lot on the horizon for SFA in 2007 including an album that is done being recorded and is in the mixing phase, hoping to hit the shelves in the spring. The album is said to be a guitar heavy, loud rocker! SFA is also in the process of recording an instrumental album with the BBC in which a documentary is simultaneously being filmed. While not the long anticipated techno album, it does sound intriguing.
And, a big year for side projects! Gruff released his second solo effort, the beautiful Candylion, sung in Welsh, English and "bad Spanish". The US release (which will include a vinyl release) is expected in March through Saddle Creek Records. He will be embarking on some solo dates this winter and spring. Gruff is also recording a collaborative effort with artist Boom Bip so far titled Neon Neon.
Chris Shaw will finish mixing The Peth's upcoming effort The Golden Mile in January.
Cian is busy at work with the Acid Casuals.
And, it appears that Bunf is currently working on a solo effort which we will hopefully hear this year.
