Preaching From The Pews: Homework

Preaching From The Pews: Homework

With two critically acclaimed EPs already under their belt and a growing reputation for thunderous live shows, Edinburgh-based synth lovers Homework are pleased to announce their debut album 13 Towers, will be released on 25 March 2013 as a CD and download.

Recorded over just a handful of weekends in a former lighthouse, the band set about working on the album with a fresh approach and one simple goal: to capture the raw energy of all four band members playing together. The result is their most ambitious work to date.
As a taster of things to come, Homework are streaming album track ‘The Edge of Control Was Black’ on their website

Having formed in the Scottish capital in 2009, Homework attracted immediate attention from the nation’s new music tastemakers, picking up airplay from BBC Radio One and BBC 6 Music as well as being selected to play the renowned T Break stage at T in the Park festival after only a handful of live shows.

Since then, the band has performed at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Rockness, Belladrum, Wickerman and T in the Park, supported the likes of Suuns, Wave Machines, The D.O.T (featuring Mike Skinner of The Streets) and Cashier Number 9 as well as showcasing at industry events including GoNorth, Glimps (Belgium) and Wide Days. Their recorded output and live shows have been consistently praised by radio (Lauren Laverne, Vic Galloway, Tom Robinson and Ally McCrae) bloggers, journalists and audiences alike.

Homework are: O. Kass (vocals, synths), R. Baird (vocals, guitar, synths), R. Kass (drums) and A. Dennis (bass). They hail from the exotic Scottish outposts of Inverness, Mull and Dumfries.

To support the release of 13 Towers, lead single It’s All Over will be released on 4th March 2013, followed by a host of live dates throughout the UK in April and May.
