Glasgow quintet The Recovery! look set to kick off 2013 in fine style with the release of their new EP ‘Wherever Nowhere Takes Us’ on February 11th 2013. The band have recently had their FREE single ‘The Faint & Fragile’ featured on BBC Radio 1 Introducing with Ally McCrae and Jen Long, Daniel P. Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Vic Galloway’s BBC Introducing podcast and also on XFM Radio. You can get the free single from the bands bandcamp and soundcloud.
The Recovery! formed out of the ashes of various bands that split up. Several failed relationships ended up in nights of alcohol fuelled debauchery in a cold dingy flat in Glasgow’s West End. The five members met just at the right time sharing experiences from hurling guitars out of smashed windows to crying tears of sheer desperation through shared experiences of love and loss. Beanzy the guitarist jokingly mentioned that they should call their new musical endeavour The Recovery! And that’s exactly what the band came to be – a musical vessel for each band member’s recovery from the depths of despair.
2012 was a pretty successful year for the band, having released two new songs, toured the UK, and played the Slam Dunk Festival in Glasgow as the main support to Cancer Bats. 2013 looks like it’s going to be even better with a new UK tour in the works. The EP is available for pre-order right now.
