After a lot of hard work and the usual tantrums and tiaras (mainly from bassist Andy Ludbrook) The Agency… are about to release their new album ‘Of ghosts’, 28 July 2014. You can pre-order the album on bandcamp and there are very limited T-shirt/album bundles still available on Bandcamp. The T-shirts are limited edition and handmade from ethically sourced materials, so get yours while they are still available.
Before the release of the album there’ll be a launch party at the Cluny 2 in Newcastle upon Tyne and this is proving to be a hot ticket. The band will be playing their new album in chronological order as well as a few old favourites. They are supported by Neil Armstrong (not the astronaut) and Low Lights Tavern.
The response to ‘Of Ghosts’ so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Check out what the press have been saying;
“Of Ghosts shows genuine talent at work. A North East band that could go places and are definite ones to watch out for.” Sophie Ward, Cuckoo Review.
“Of Ghosts’ is a genuine long-play record that sits alongside Leonard Cohen’s early work or mid-period Nick Cave, as an album to be taken seriously.” Alan Harrison, NoDepression.com, June 2014.
“‘Of Ghosts’ is a well-structured album that makes you want to hit repeat as soon as its over; continually surprising, it contains richly imagined storylines and plenty of technical brilliance.” Claire Dupree, NARC Magazine, July 2014.
“…the kind of undertow which sweeps you along; and the darker hued alt country tunes are right on the money. Quietly grandiose stuff.” Diane Peterson, The Crack Magazine, July 2014.
Hope to see you on the 25th of July, it’s going to be a great night!
