Tribes reveal debut album ‘Baby’ for early 2012

Tribes 0061

London act Tribes(who we actually tipped at the start of the year) release their debut album ‘Baby’ on Island Records in January 2012, with the single ‘We Were Children’ dropping a week prior on the 9th.
Put to tape over six intense weeks in Liverpool with producer Mike Crossey, these songs have been honed to perfection during an odyssey of couch surfing and tearing the arse out of sweaty, shoebox-sized venues.  For singer Johnny Lloyd, the tracks that make up the album were penned during a two month period that saw him split from his girlfriend, move back in with his parents and tragically have to come to terms with the death of his lifelong friend, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool front man Charlie Haddon.
Currently touring the US and Europe and fresh from an impressively sold-out Electric Ballroom show, the Camden quartet are set to end a huge year when they play XFMs Winter Wonderland at Brixton Academy on December 14th, topped off with headlining the New Year party at the HMV Forum on the 31st.
The band are also very pleased to announce that they’ll be joining Two Door Cinema Club, Metronomy and Azealia Banks for the NME Awards Tour in February (full dates below).
