Blood Red Shoes Return: New Single, Album, UK Tour Announced

Blood Red Shoes - In Time To Voices

Blood Red Shoes are surely one of the UK’s best two-piece rock bands, having already delivered two fantastic albums as well as building up a reputation as a ferocious live act. 2012 sees them return in full force with a trio of announcements – so let’s cover them in the order that they’re going to happen. Firstly, the band’s new single ‘Cold’ will be released on the 19th March – have a listen to the track on Youtube below.

The first thing you’ll notice about the song are those absolutely colossal drums, demonstrating an intent to somehow outdo themselves in terms of sheer sonic impact – add into the mix the usual razor-sharp guitar riffs and impassioned dual vocal lines, and it’s clear that this is a prime Blood Red Shoes cut. ‘Cold’ will be the first single from the duo’s third album, which is entitled In Time To Voices and will be released a week later on the 26th March. You’ll be able to pre-order the 11-track album from all the usual suspects, but it’s worth noting that Play.com have some signed copies up for grabs, and Recordstore are doing an exclusive t-shirt bundle.

And last, but certainly not least, the band will be back on the road at the end of April, embarking on a 14-date UK tour. The full list of dates is as follows:

April:
27th: Brighton, Concorde 2
28th: Portsmouth, Wedgewood Rooms
29th: Oxford, O2 Academy

May:
1st: Bristol, Trinity
2nd: Norwich, Waterfront
3rd: London, Heaven
4th: Birminghan, HMV Library
5th: Manchester, Academy 2
7th: Liverpool, Zanzibar
8th: Newcastle, Cluny
9th: Aberdeen, Tunnels
10th: Glasgow, King Tuts
12th: Leeds, Cockpit
13th: Nottingham, Rescue Rooms

Those outside the UK, fear not – more shows in Europe (and possibly beyond) are due to be announced shortly. For now, there’s that new single to stick on repeat and the prospect of a new album to look forward to – personally, I can’t wait.
