Deacon Blue return with the much anticipated follow up to Top-20 album The Hipsters with their 8th studio album A New House, released on 8th September throughWarner Artist Services.
Formed in Glasgow in 1985, Deacon Blue went on to become one of the city's most famous and successful bands. From debut album Raintown and follow-up, the chart-topping When The World Knows Your Name, through to 2012's The Hipsters, Deacon Blue are consistently one of the most respected and critically received bands of their generation.
Alongside over six million album sales, twelve UK Top 40 singles and two UK Number One albums, Deacon Blue are also one of the most passionate live bands around today. They are taking to the road again this autumn for a national tour, and will be playing tracks in support of the new album, A New House, alongside classics such as Dignity, Real Gone Kid, and Fergus Sings The Blues.
The album has been produced by Paul Savage (Franz Ferdinand, Teenage Fanclub, King Cresote) and sees the band signed to a new label, Warner Artist Services.
President of the label Dan Chalmers says: "We are so happy to welcome Deacon Blue to the Rhino Records family. It's an honour to get the chance to work with such eloquent songwriters and artists of this calibre, and we look forward to an ongoing relationship with the band."
Ricky Ross says: "I am more excited about this new album than any record we've made up until now. It's going to be great to perform live. As well as that, we have a huge catalogue of songs from our other records we will want to play.don't expect to go home too early!"
Singer Lorraine McIntosh agrees: "We have been enjoying every minute of making this beautiful record. So looking forward to getting out there and playing it live across the country."
