Following the release of their debut single, "Fire at Will" in November, The Lindsay Tin are to launch their new EP with a show at The Sage in Gateshead on April 12th 2013.
The brainchild of Paul Christian Patterson (founding member of alt/electro outfit d_rradio and murky folk group The Dark Sky Singers) and Paul Jeans (the sole member of Jeans goes POP!), The Lindsay Tin began writing together in 2012, wiling away the winter months in a small attic in South Shields. Overlooking the stark and brooding North East coastline, they began crafting thought-provoking, intricate musical insights into the human condition, in its endless forms.
The Lindsay Tin have released a teaser trailer to introduce their new material, watch below:
Since the release of "Fire at Will", the band's unrestrained sound and emotive performances have seen them achieve wide recognition and extensive radio airplay. Since playing their first gig in July 2012, the band have gone on to share the stage with artists such as Thomas Truax, The Cornshed Sisters, Misty's Big Adventure, She Makes War, and The 1930's. They appeared at Out of the Trees festival in December, and will perform at this year's Stockton Calling, alongside Sunshine Underground, Nine Black Alps and Chapel Club.
Their first stand alone show of 2013, the gig at the prestigious Gateshead venue will unveil not only their new, fleshed-out sound, but also their expanded line-up; in a bid to allow the material to reach its full potential, the former duo have recently become a five-piece, welcoming Rich James on upright bass, Jonny Rix on guitar and Dom Murphy on drums. Support on the night will come from Minotaurs, The Union Choir and Doc Smith.
