The CD includes the audio from the Left Bank session along with the b-sides from the HWSTD singles.
The band are spending the remainder of the year writing their third album to be recorded in January and released in 2012 through ILR.
Following on from the success of the band’s first foray into the tea business earlier this year with the launch of ILTea, I Like Trains have also unveiled their own take on Earl Grey.
The idea to produce their own brand of tea first to came to the band whilst they were touring on the continent and having withdrawal symptoms for a decent cup of tea. Both teas were blended by the band and their finely tuned taste buds, to create a strong flavoursome British brew.
ILTea Earl Grey sees the band continue to collaborate with Lee Rosy’s Tea Room and is available from http://shop.iliketrains.co.uk
