The Departure The new single released June 4 th 2005
The Departure’s classic debut single gets a re-release up front of the release of their stunning debut album.
With minimal airplay ‘All Mapped Out’ gatecrashed the Top 30 on its release last August. A crack to the head of dynamic, motorik beats, question and answer guitars and idiosyncratic vocals, ‘All Mapped Out’ is a brilliant song that deserves to be huge second time around.
The Departure formed in Northampton in early 2004 and signed to Parlophone a few months later.
They have been on the road pretty much non-stop ever since, honing their skills and their songs as a support act to The Killers, Gang Of Four and Graham Coxon, as well as touring in their own right.
Containing their ot her hit singles ‘Be My Enemy’ and ‘Lump In My Throat’ The Departure’s debut album ‘Dirty Words’ is out on June 13 th.
