|Breton War Room Stories Limited Vinyl LP
Breton will release of their much anticipated second album 'War Room Stories' on Cut Tooth/Believe Recordings.
The album was written during a year spent touring incessantly and playing festivals across the world. It was recorded this summer at the Funkhaus in Berlin – a building with the same otherworldly weirdness as Breton's beloved creative HQ, The Lab in South London, which was demolished last summer to make way for luxury flats.
Breton also employed the services of the Macedonian Radio Symphonic Orchestra who appear on five tracks throughout the album. The band recorded the tracks earmarked for orchestration on a laptop, translated them into sheet music and flew to Macedonia where the 44 piece orchestra then played them live in the studio. The stunning results can be heard on 'Envy', 'Closed Category', 'Legs and Arms', 'S Four' and 'War Room Stories'.
There will be a full European tour in 2014 which follows on from recent support dates with Local Natives and Foals.
There will be spot plays for singles ‘Got Well Soon’ and ‘Envy’ on Phil & Alice (BBC Radio 1) & Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Mary Ann Hobbs (BBC 6 Music), whilst second single ‘Envy’ premiered exclusively on Nosiey.
