Pensioner - Yearlings album

Scottish band Pensioner released their debut album 'Yearlings' in May 2011 on Glasgow's Olive Grove Records.

The album picked up some great reviews in the likes of The Irish Times, The Scottish Sun and The Skinny which led to them playing a live session on BBC Radio 1 with Ally McCrae and support slots with the likes of And So I Watch You From Afar..., The Twilight Sad, Errors and The Phantom Band.

Recently the album has featured in numerous 'Best Of' lists for this year including Vic Galloway of BBC Radio Scotland's Top 50 and Jockrock's Top 25, rounding off what has been a great year for the band.
