Annuals release their new single, Brother on June 4th 2007 through Virgin Records, an evening-time, humming chorus of forest noises.a peaceful darkness presided over by a starry, quiet sky, dragonflies, and green-ness (one could imagine)..tips over from soothing strings and hushed vocals to an adrenaline-filled, galloping chorus of guitars, drums and hollered vocals. It's impressive, expansive stuff. Huge in scope. Live - positively hypnotic.
The UK release of Annual's debut LP 'Be He Me', though preceded by valuable taster EP 'Big Zeus' back in February, has been eagerly awaited for some months now. Be He Me will be released on June 18th.
