Airship are pleased to announce details of their new single for release this Summer, alongside a spate of live shows.
The Manchester quartet will release ‘Kids’ through Play It Again Sam on June 13, 2011. It is taken from their forthcoming debut album due in the Autumn and will be their first single.
The band will also open a couple of UK shows for Ra Ra Riot in London and Manchester, and are already confirmed for a handful of UK festival dates too, leading them into the Summer.
Since forming in 2008, Airship has notched up acclaimed support tours with Editors, Biffy Clyro, The Joy Formidable and Frightened Rabbit. A self-released EP last year received rave reviews, but the band hit their city bunker and refused to re-surface until an album’s worth of material was readied.
Their determination to succeed in the right way has paid off with debut album, ‘Stuck In This Ocean’ which is receiving its finishing touches now. Still with an average age of just 22, the quartet’s sound have already progressed – their songs becoming more direct and their sound ever more open and ambitious from constant touring.
Airship live dates:
17 – London, Garage
18 – Manchester, Ruby Lounge
21 – Manchester, Friends of Mine Festival
28 – Manchester, Beached Festival
29 – Kendal, Kendal Calling
