Acoustic Tour - Field Recordings (out now)
Fresh from performing to a rammed tent at the Electric
Picnic, Bell X1 are pleased to announce an Irish acoustic
tour with dates across October, November and December.
Tickets will be on sale most places this Friday, September
7th. Ahead of that, the band are off to the States in
September and will bring their acoustic tour to Europe
in early 2013.
Field Recordings was released in July and is available
as a mostly acoustic double CD available exclusively
from the Bell X1 online Shoppe & most digital retailers.
It contains songs from all 5 studio albums Neither
Am I / Music In Mouth / Flock / Blue Lights On The Runway
/ Bloodless Coup and was recorded on their sold out
2010 Global acoustic tour.
In late 2010, to commemorate the 10 year anniversary
of the release of our first record Neither am I, we
set out on an acoustic (ish) tour of North America &
Phil Hayes, our friend and sound engineer, recorded
most of the gigs, taking the desk mix and a couple of
ambient microphones in the room.
He also took many photographs of the sky, us guys,
buildings and food.
From this bounty we've put together Field Recordings,
21 songs and photography from the road, and are very
grateful to Phil for it.
