The View, 429 Records
The View, Scotland's irrepressible purveyors of propulsive indie rock are gearing up for the U.S. release of "CHEEKY FOR A REASON," their 429 Records debut and their first-ever U.S. club tour. It's the band's fourth album for the Mercury Prize nominees (garnered for their #1 debut album, "Hats Off To The Buskers").
The View kicks off their tour February 28(th) at The Crocodile in Seattle, WA hitting major cities nationally and wrapping up in New York City April 7(th) at the Bowery Ballroom. "CHEEKY FOR A REASON" was recorded at Liverpool's Motor Museum Studios with producer Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight, Foals).
Along with Kyle Falconer (vocals, guitar) the band includes Kieren Webster (bass), Peter Reilly (guitar) and Steve Morrison (drums). "CHEEKY FOR A REASON returned the band to the Top 10 on the UK charts earlier this year plus the first single was the #1 download upon its release. The first U.S. single, "The Clock", will be going for adds at Triple A Radio this week. The hometown heroes recently won the Sunday Mail/Great Scots Music Award for the success of the band within the past year. "CHEEKY FOR A REASON" will be available everywhere on 429 Records on February 19(th). A special Deluxe version which includes the CD and a DVD of their music videos will be available at Best Buy (link below).
Formed in 2005 and quickly reaching the top of the UK charts with their 2007 debut, The View have embraced the all too rare concept of a band wired to perform their brand of rock and roll on an entirely thrilling, instinctual, nonconformist level. Says Falconer on the songwriting process: "When I'm smashed and when it's whatever comes into my head. If I'm thinking about it--that's when it goes to shite." It's a simple formula to keep their fans energized by the adrenaline-fueled songs. Released in the UK earlier this year to ecstatic reviews, the album's twelve new self-penned songs are infused with fire, passion, soul and joy. Says Barry Nicolson in NME this year: "It's crisp, clean enunciated and an immeasurably better fit. At least now they can justifiably claim their creative fire is kindling once again."
