Public Service Broadcasting.
Public Service Broadcasting today release their single ‘Turn No More’, featuring Manic Street Preachers’ frontman James Dean Bradfield. The track is taken from their LP Every Valley, which charted at #4 in the UK album charts in July. They also kick off their 12-date UK tour today, before heading out on a 20-date European tour in November.
J. Willgoose Esq. says of the single and how it fits into the story painted in Every Valley, “I wanted the track to have a restrained, plaintive, defiant but still angry feel, and working with James’ voice and the source material was a bit part of that, especially layering the voices towards the end. At its heart it’s a song about the people living with the aftermath – both environmental and personal – of the desolation caused both by the practices of an industry and its subsequent collapse.”
Public Service Broadcasting have recently returned from a North American tour in September followed by a couple of dates in Mexico. Their 12-date UK run begins today in Cardiff and culminates at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, before a 20-date European tour throughout November. Full details are on the band’s website.
