By November 4, 2014 Culture, News

After five years away, Scottish alternative rock band Idlewild return with new album, ‘Everything Ever Written’, set for release on February 9, 2015.



The band’s eighth studio recording represents a new chapter, both personally and creatively. Produced by the band’s guitarist Rod Jones and mixed by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.) whom they collaborated with on their 2002 release ‘The Remote Part’ and augmented by new members Luciano Rossi (piano, organ and vocals) and Andrew Mitchell (bass, guitar and vocals), ‘Everything Ever Written’ is Idlewild’s most eclectic output to date.

“The album was predominantly written on the Isle of Mull”, vocalist Roddy Woomble explains. “The record soundtracks a period of transition. Working without time constraints gave the whole thing a creative freedom. Idlewild is a new band to me now; I’m excited for the future.”.

Exclusive pre-sale tickets (for the UK dates only) will be available to fans who pre-order ‘Everything Ever Written’ before November 7, 2014.
