Cattle & Cane Announce Brand New Album 'Mirrors' And UK Headline Tour

Led by siblings Joe and Helen Hammill, Cattle & Cane’s sophomore album ‘Mirrors‘ is all set for release on Friday 28th April. Produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and Temple Studios in Malta, and mastered by Frank Arkwright (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, New Order) at Abbey Road Studios in London, ‘Mirrors’ features ten tracks that effortlessly showcase Cattle & Cane’s ability to shift even the hardest of hearts with their perfect, soaring harmonies.

Manchester's Shaking Chains announce debut single ‘Midnight Oil’

Manchester’s Shaking Chains have announced their debut AA-single ‘Midnight Oil’ / ‘Drunk No More’ for release on April 21st via Concrete Recordings, along with two release shows in March.

Taut and tense, ‘Midnight Oil’ arrives inspired by life in the desolate lane. You can feel the devastating weight and potential, the sound of clever anger, of distrust and opposition. “Before Jon Voight stood beside the Capitol Hill Building to lick Trump’s ego, he played a far more respectable prostitute in the 1969 film Midnight Cowboy,” lyricist Nathan Mcilroy explains. “This song is a paean to Joe Buck and Ratso Rizzo and their interminable friendship that radiates onscreen, from life unto death,” he adds.

Elsewhere ‘Drunk No More’ sees Mcilroy inspired by Carol Batton, ...
