Futur Primitif on Rough Trade Compilation

We’re delighted that Futur Primitif have been chosen to contribute a track to the brand new double album (CD and download) produced by the Rough Trade Record Shop to celebrate this year’s End Of The Road Festival.

RoughTradeComp_cover

Simon Taffe and his team started the EOTR festival in 2005 and Rough Trade was there with its first ever festival stall and have been there ever since. From the outset Simon attempted to create an independent festival with a strong ethos, a booking policy that avoided over hyped bands, where artists played longer than normal sets and a holistic approach to staffing, environment and facilities.

2013′s End Of The Road promises to be a heavy, intensely rewarding collective experience with Rough Trade favourites like Sigur Ros, Belle and Sebastian, Dinosaur Jr and David Byrne rubbing shoulders with exciting new artists like Savages, Charlie Boyer, Merchandise, Angel Olsen, Deptford Goth, our own Futur Primitif and many more.

Valentiine – new single, album & UK tour

Valentiine release their eponymous debut album via Integrity Records on 1st July, preceded by new single ‘Chucky‘ on 17th June, alongside their first headline UK tour.

Valentiine are 3 girls from Melbourne, Australia, who reincarnate the heavy 90’s into something beautiful, dirty pop hooks drowned in the honesty of screaming vocals with seething cheerleader harmonies over the top.

New single ‘Chucky‘ and its video show the band’s dark humour as they recount their own ‘morning after’ hangover blues in graphic detail.

Watch CHUCKY on YouTube here: CHUCKY VIDEO

‘Awesome. Disgusting. I love it!’  Ruth Barnes, Amazing Radio

‘Warning: contains disturbing children’s playgroup vomiting scenes’  Classic Rock Magazine

The single’s b-side, is the heavier, moody slow-burn ‘Beauty Lies‘ which has its very own Jerome Velinsky video too.

Chucky‘ follows debut single ‘Love Like‘ which was A-listed, Breakfast Show Record of the Week and was No. 1 in the Amazing Radio chart, B-listed on Bloodstock Radio and received spot plays on Radio 1’s Phil and Alice show, Q and several regional specialist shows.

Valentiine’s 11-track album is out on CD on 1st July via our mailorder page and from select indie record stores around the UK.  It will also be available as a special pre-release from all UK shows and has full European distribution via iTunes (you can pre-order now at Valentiine iTunes pre-order ), Amazon and other download stores.
