I have to be honest, the first I'd heard of any rumours that Basement Jaxx had been dropped was when an email turned up from XL Records denying that any such thing had happened:
Contrary to a small number of internet stories that have surfaced over the weekend, XL Recordings would like to clarify that Basement Jaxx have not been dropped by the label.
XL Recordings will be releasing the band's new album 'Scars' on 21st September along with their new single 'Feelings Gone' featuring Sam Sparro.
The band, fresh from headline appearances at this year's Creamfields, Big Chill and Wireless festivals, will be heading out on a massive UK tour in December which will include a show at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday 17th December.
I'm sure there were such stories, and this isn't just a ploy to get mention of the album in front of people with a couple of weeks to go.
