Meursault are to release a new mini-album – possibly – to help finance their trip to South By South-West in March.
As a crowd-funded project, the track listing is to be ‘crowd-picked’ by fans who contribute to the release.
The band. who also plan their first US tour (of the east coast) to coincide with the music conference/festival, have already released thre albums in their 5 year existence. Aptly-named, The Organ Grinder’s Monkey will feature specially-recorded new tunes which will be voted for by the ‘public’, plus a version of a previous Meursault track, and a cover version – the vote for this last category only open to those making an extra donation…
More on the sessions, which will be performed by the 4-piece band who will travel to Texas, will follow. The launch nights for the album will follow shortly afterwards – including a set on Friday 21st February at The Haven Café in Newhaven, with TBA shows in Edinburgh on the 23rd and 24th, and the finale of a mysterious “Big shiny gig” on March 1st.
