DAVE HUGHES & THE RFPB TO RELEASE 'DOCTORS AND DATES' MINI-ALBUM on 24/03/14 (Different Circle Records)
"With clear shades of The Pogues, The La's and Springsteen, they are clearly doing plenty right" -- Kerrang
"Dave Hughes writes the type of music that gives me hope in the era of Ed Sheeran and his beige masses: thought provoking and intelligent social commentary". - The 405
Dave Hughes & The RFPB release "Doctors and Dates" on Monday 24th of March through Different Circle Records. This is the follow-up to last year's full length debut "In Death Do We Part?" which went on to sell over 300 copies through DIY promotion and a heavy touring schedule.
Doctors and Dates is seven explosive new tracks detailing personal battles with depression, addiction, relationships and restoration. Pounding opener "City of Us" sets up the mind as a city on the verge of collapse, while the New Jersey sounding title track cuts right to the heart of confronting your own fears of the unknown. 'Luath St Stories' is a mini folk-punk opera acted out on the streets of Govan in Glasgow where, amid self-doubt and ultra-violence, a silver lining can be found. All wrapped up in the catchy and singalong choruses that the RFPB have became known for up and down the country.
The album will be released on physical formats and digital via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, bandcamp and all other mainstream digital routes. The mini-album was recorded live, in the studio, over two days in January 2014 at Bones and Smithereens in Greenock, Scotland with "In Death Do We Part?" producer and engineer Gareth McNicol at the helm.
The band are booked to play concerts all around the UK throughout 2014, with a solo stint for Dave to Germany in April and an appearance at the world famous Barrowlands Ballroom in Glasgow on 15th of February. East Coast America dates are to be announced for late 2014
