The Splendour to release debut album + watch "Money" video + tour dates

The Splendour

The Splendour was formed by respected Brighton muso Justin Gourlay, intent on making snappy chunky indie rock songs for the masses to enjoy. Together with John Crick (Guitar) and Greg Houghton (Bass) and with this their debut album recorded with Dan Swift, producer of Kasabian, Art Brut and Aqualung, they are succeeding in their quest.

With the first single "Audio", the band was Emma Scott's Ones To Watch on Kerrang! Radio, Fresh Meat on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show and played at The Great Escape Festival.

Their second single is "Money" and the band have already attracted high praise from the UK press. This groove driven dancefloor filler builds to a triumphant hands-in-the-air chorus that will crack a smile at even the most serious of clubs.

Watch "Money" video:

"Money" is scheduled for release on July 28th, 2008. This full throttle piece of indie rock is accompanied by the characteristic splendour hooks with an added horn section in the mix.

Their debut album 'The Best Way To Make Money' is being released with the backing of ILS (Independent Label Scheme) - the new venture from Catskills founder Jonny Reggae and top music lawyer Dean Marsh - which gives the band the infrastructure to release the album on their own Tinyclan imprint while providing experienced record label backing. The debut album is out August 2008.
