Flashguns Passions Of A Different Kind New Flashguns 7"! "Passions Of A Different Kind" follows quickly on from the hefty rotation by Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and the widespread blogger hype garnered for last December’s thumping "Come And See The Lights" single. Following a support tour with Mona, along with their own extensive string of headline dates, Flashguns spit out another soaring taster to their debut album of the same title. Recorded in a dilapidated barn in the bleak winter of rural Somerset, "Passions Of A Different Kind" contrasts that starkness with a huge guitar-driven punch. Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and Barney Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Temper Trap), it’s a moody, euphoric sound, guided by the vocals of Sam Felix Johnston. www.flashguns.com/ Friends Vs Records 7"

Dinosaur Pile-Up Growing Pains Debut album from Dinosaur Pile-Up! ‘Growing Pains’ is the sound of a one of the UK’s most exciting bands hitting their stride. It comes, following a handful of introductory independent releases over the past year and a bit, after which the band's frontman and creative force Matt Bigland entered Bridlington's Lodge Studios with producer James Kenosha to record the debut, taking place over January and February this year. The result is a storming rock powerhouse of big pop songs driven by the kind of wall shaking undercurrent only a three piece can muster! www.myspace.com/dinosaurpileup Friends Vs Records CD Out of Stock
