Since signing to Alcopop! Records at the tail end of last year, Gunning For Tamar have been firing on all cylinders and have been accelerating at such a speed that it would be impossible to look back even if they wanted to. In the lead up to a busy summer festival period which sees the band playing at The Great Escape, 2000 Trees, Truck, Wychwood, Southsea and Underground, Alcopop! have announced that they will release a new single from the GFT on August 6th. ‘Dark Sky Toursim’ has been recorded with Tom Stanley (The Cure) and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro) and will be limited free for all, but will also be released on a rather special physical limited edition format. Teaming up with artist Lewes Herriot, the song will come packaged on USB with stacks of extras with an over sized, hand-made A2 screen-print designed by Herriot, and is the first taster of the bands forthcoming album, due in early 2013. It’s currently available from the Alcopop! Webstore for £10.
