The View Confirm Third Album Title
Since then the band have enjoyed experimenting, releasing a follow up which contained sea shanties, orchestras and elements of hip hop. Now it seems as though the Scottish indie rockers have gone back to basics.
Completing their third album with producer Youth, The View have opted for the name 'Bread And Circuses'. Due for release later this year, the album was initially titled 'The Best Lasts Forever'. Keeping the new material under wraps, the hard touring band decided to get back out on the road last year. Finishing 2010 in style, The View hit intimate venues across the country as the snow fell.
Announcing another bout of tour dates, The View have now confirmed their latest single. 'Grace' is due to be released on March 7th, complete with previously unreleased flipside 'Clowns'.
The following week the band will release 'Bread And Circuses'. Confirming details of the finished tracklisting, the new tracks include a number of straight forward one word titles: 'Life', 'Friend', 'Blondie' and more. Ending with 'The Best Lasts Forever' the album is storming return from the band, with The View clearly revitalised after locking themselves away in the rehearsal studio.
The View are due to release 'Bread And Circuses' on March 14th.
