Following their trail blazing set at this year's Reading / Leeds festival, Mancunian four-piece Nine Black Alps release a brand new single on October 8th 2007, 'Bitter End' is a veritable taster of what's to come from their hotly anticipated second album , 'Love / Hate'.
The band who have spent the last eighteen months working on the forthcoming long-player have emerged with an arsenal of musical gems which have undoubtedly moved the band forward from it's predecessor and will light up the L.E.D of digital radio countrywide...not bereft of their signature riffage, the new songs have a new found maturity which marks them out on a par with any of their contemporaries.
'Bitter End' comes on all subtle underpinned with vocals and a melody to die for before evoking a Dinosaur Jr workout. Weighing in at three minutes it's a perfect slice of pop punk beauty...More of the same can be aurally witnessed when 'Love / Hate' is released on October 22nd October.
