DAN THE MAN OF THE WOMBATS ANNOUNCES SECOND SOLO RECORD CIRCADIAN CIRCUS SET FOR RELEASE FEBRUARY 24

February 10th, 2017

Dan The Man

FIRST SINGLE “SOMETHING GOOD” 

OUT NOW

Toronto, ON – February 10, 2017 - Today, Daniel Haggis, aka Dan The Man, drummer and multi-instrumentalist in the Liverpool band, The Wombats, has released new single, ”Something Good“. The track comes from his second solo album, Circadian Circus, out February 24 worldwide on Bright Antenna Records.

The song and album were written mostly in between Liverpool and Paris, performed and self-produced by Haggis, recorded and co-produced by Rob Whiteley (Clinic, The Night Cafe, The Wombats) and mastered by Greg Calbi (The National, Tame Impala, Father John Misty).

Haggis on the making of the single and album:

“I wrote ‘Something Good’ in the middle of winter, which in Liverpool isn’t exactly Hawaiian shirts and shorts. The sun goes down around 4pm and vitamin D is in short supply. This setting, coupled with a particularly bad run of events in news reports (and my life) lead to this song being written. It’s a request to the universe (and my own brain) to pump some more positive vibes into the mix and reset the balance, as well as a nod to escapism through fiction whether it’s a book or a film.”

Circadian Circus is a collection of songs from the past four years that made the enigmatic, inexplicable journey from my subconscious and needed a place to rest. It’s an album of acceptance, of coming to terms with things we can’t always control.

I spend most of my time playing drums, keys and making warbling sounds in The Wombats. Over the last few years, whenever we weren’t recording or I had a few days off tour, I would go into the studio in Liverpool and work on ideas I had lying around on my phone or computer, and gradually this album emerged.”

Pre-order Circadian Circus  HERE and receive ”Something Good” immediately.

Haggis’ solo album comes on the heels of The Wombats finishing their world tour supporting their third LP, Glitterbug. The album debuted TOP 5 on the UK Album chart and Billboard 100. The two singles from the album- “Give Me A Try” and “Greek Tragedy”-have almost 55 million streams on Spotify and over 7 million plays on YouTube combined. “Give Me A Try” claimed the #1 spot on AltNation’s Alt18 chart three weeks in row, and is currently TOP 20 at Alternative Radio. The band performed “Greek Tragedy” on Late Night with Seth Meyers and “Give Me a Try,” “Greek Tragedy” and “Jump Into the Fog” on CBS This Morning.

Children of Alice: Debut album released 24th February 2017 on Warp Records

Full Biography

www.childrenofalice.com

TORONTO, ON – January 26, 2017 - Children of Alice have been quietly producing amorphous and intoxicating soundscapes as part of the Folklore Tapes collective for a number of years now, beginning in 2013 with Harbinger of Spring on the shared Ornithology release. This poetic conjuration of rebirth and new growth was the first unfurling of post-Broadcast creation from James Cargill, one half of the personal and artistic relationship at the heart of that epochal and increasingly feted band. The name Children of Alice was chosen as an act of tribute to the late Trish Keenan, for whom Alice in Wonderland and in particular Jonathan Miller’s summerhazy 60s idyll of an adaptation, was a presiding inspiration. The name invokes her abiding spirit and also creates a sense of continuity with the evolving Broadcast soundworld, which became more concentrated and individual as it refined itself and adapted to new configurations. The group (or perhaps we should call them a collaborative triad, since they occupy island territory far removed from the familiar shores of rock, though still keeping it in vision on the far horizon) consists of Cargill along with his former bandmate Roj Stevens (who played keyboards in Broadcast) and Julian House, co-founder of Ghost Box records, whose distinctive graphic design work also gives the label its signature look, and hidden prestidigitator behind The Focus Group.

This LP brings together their entire output to date, on their first widely available release
