I don't really need an excuse to post a 2012 session video from Two Door Cinema Club, but their tweet "Album 3. Finished." is a pretty great one.
Even if you don't know the band by name, there's little chance you haven't heard them before, with their first record, Tourist History (released way back in 2010 - what?!) featuring such tracks as Undercover Martyn, What You Know, This Is The Life and I Can Talk. It's one of those timeless summer-y albums that can always put a smile on my face. The second record, released two years later, didn't seem to get as much recognition, but the band have been working away on their third record and, according to their Twitter, it's ready. Hopefully there will be a new track released soon, and when the release date is announced I'll be sure to post it on here!
The band have already confirmed slots at Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds in the UK, as well as various other festivals further afield, and a new album means a tour. I'm pretty keen to check them out live, as a few friends have spoken to me about seeing them live before, half seem to think they were great live, and the other half were left unimpressed, so I'd like to make up my own mind! Either way I'm looking forward to some more studio recordings from the band!
