David Ford to release Decimate + UK tour dates

David Ford - DecimateIf "Decimate" is 'a kind of love song' as David Ford would have it, then it is a tough love indeed. A lover willing to share the load in a triumph of bittersweet pop, "Decimate" is set for release on Independiente on October 8th, 2007.

The buoyant Motown vibe of Smokey Robinson, and the vibrant strings of a beaten up "Moondance" contrast the lyrical themes of souls in need of salvation. Mixed by Ben Allen (Gnarls Barkley) for it's single release, "Decimate" epitomises the confident production and defiant wisdom of Ford's engaging new album. The b-side "Boy Most Likely To" is a heartfelt acoustic ballad showcasing Ford's innate songwriting gift. The digital bundle will also include a bonus demo version of the a-side.

Having garnered critical acclaim both in the UK and in the US for his vitriolic home studio debut 'I Sincerely Apologise For The Trouble I Have Caused', David Ford's 'Songs For The Road', his second album, is released on Independiente on October 15th. Currently available as a download only release it has already built remarkable 'word of mouth' support. It currently occupies the Number One spot on the iTunes Folk Chart, and is at Number Four in the 7Digital album chart with all of the album's 9 tracks in their Top Ten downloads.

David Ford embarks on a nationwide tour next month, culminating in a headline show at The Shepherds Bush Empire on October 27th.
