Following the critical success of the recent single “Oh Jackie”, November 26 sees the release of “Red Light Means Go”, the wonderfully eclectic new album by A Band Called Quinn, Scotland’s favourite art-popsters. You can preview the album on the band’s website at www.abandcalledquinn.com and you certainly won’t be disappointed. It’s a doozy!
The band will be supporting The Beat at The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen on November 23 and Edinburgh’s Picture House on November 24, as well an offical launch of the album in Glasgow’s George Square on November 26. The Glasgow gig is also part of the Hear Glasgow Loves Christmas event; one of a series of gigs hosted Hear Glasgow, a youth music organisation showcasing some of the most talented, up and coming bands from the city. Other artists performing include Hector Bizerk, Jo Mango, Father Sculptor, Patricia Panther, The Deadline Shakes & Teen Canteen amongst others.
Jim Gellatly will be your MC for the evening and playing some tunes inbetween the bands. The event runs from 6pm-9pm and there will also be a heated marquee with a bar selling mulled wine and stovies to keep out the festive chill.
Tracks from the new album have already featured in “Fast Romance”, Carter Ferguson’s BAFTA-winning drama, as well as BBC 3’s “Lip Service”.
