The news that Gomez have scheduled a late March US release for their new album, A New Tide, doesn't entirely thrill me, but given that they're popular with some No Rock regular readers, it would be churlish to not to mention it. Presumably there's a UK release scheduled for roughly the same time.

Further to yesterday's news of a Gomez date in Manchester, it turns out there's going to be a full tour of Bring It On shows:
Sheffield, Plug – August 28
Newcastle, Carling Academy – 31
London, The Forum – September 2
Birmingham, Carling Academy – 3
Manchester Univeristy - 4
The band are believed to be playing the album, track-by-track, all the way through. Earlier plans - where they were only going to play Whipping Piccadilly and then have a ten minute chat with Jo Whiley as she tells them how great they are - have been shelved, although might have been more historically accurate.

Gomez are gathering in Manchester in September to play Bring It On all the way through, to mark ten years since they were thought of as the next big thing ("ten years since the album's Mercury Prize victory").

The Electric Soft Parade are going to do a gig at Dingwalls in aide of resolution daes, a dyslexia awareness charity. They've already got support from Gomez and Belle & Sebastian, and their website has that rare thing - an interview with kevin shields
