Beans On Toast has premiered his latest music video for new track ‘The Chicken Song’, taken from the upcoming album ‘The Grand Scheme of Things’.  Inspired by factory farming and the meat industry, the song explores the change in tides as chickens plan their revenge on the humans who have eaten them for so long. With a little help from head chicken Bobby Banjo, Beans On Toast shows off his talents for homemade music videos and sharp wit once again!

‘The Grand Scheme of Things’ is set for release on Bean’s birthday, 1 December,  via Xtra Mile Records.

Following the critical and commercial success of their debut album last year and 18 months’ extensive touring across the world, Public Service Broadcasting are pleased to confirm the release of their eagerly anticipated second album, The Race For Space (February 23 2015 via Test Card Recordings).

To mark the occasion, the band will perform two very special live transmissions from the National Space Centre, Leicester, on 26 & 27 February 2015 (now sold out) as well as heading out on a full UK tour, ending with their biggest headline show to date at London’s Roundhouse.

The band announced details of their new project during a live Q&A as part of the Lost Lectures series which took place – fittingly enough – at the birthplace of broadcasting, London’s Alexandra Palace. They also premiered a short trailer for The Race For Space, setting part of President John F Kennedy’s famous 1962 Rice University Stadium address to an ominous and atmospheric backing. Watch the trailer here

Recorded at The Pool Studios and Abbey Road in London and, once again working with exclusive archive footage from the British Film Institute, the new record will tell the story of the American & Soviet space race from 1957 – 1972 via the duo’s eccentric mix of guitar-driven electronica, propulsive drumming and spoken word samples culled from this uniquely rich period of modern history.

The Race For Space follows Inform – Educate – Entertain, Public Service Broadcasting’s debut album which reached #21 in the UK album charts and was nominated for ‘Best Independent Album’ at the AIM Awards 2013, as well as being The Guardian’s Album of the Week and one of BBC 6Music’s Top 10 albums of 2013.

The new album will be supported by a global tour, starting in Australia and New Zealand, travelling on to SXSW and North America before returning to Europe. Additionally Public Service Broadcasting have been invited to be the sole support for Kaiser Chiefs on their upcoming arena tour early next year.

The first track from the new album will be revealed soon and we can’t wait.

Tickets for the UK tour go on sale at 9am on Friday 24th October from here.

This Saturday night the Gorgeous George boys (and girl on trumpet) will be playing a headline show at Camden’s Proud Gallery! Featuring some new tracks, old faces and plenty of fun, the eight piece will no doubt get everyone up dancing with their unique blend of South London balkan folk . Tickets are available from www.proudcamden.com. If you need more persuading here is a description of what their live act is like:

‘Gorgeous George can only be described as one of the most exciting live and recording acts to have emerged from London in recent times. Their original and completely unique blend of Eastern European folk musics with a distinctly youthful South London wisp has been leaving audiences with their jaws dropped. They deliver hilarious tales of frighteningly believable and relative characters that make listening to them feel like one big fly on the wall documentary in a Council Estate, married with a musical skill, knowledge and stage presence which is rarely, if ever, seen in a band so young and new.’
