The S.C.U.M. line up of Thomas Cohen (vocal), Bradley Baker (machines), Samuel Kilcoyne (moog), Melissa Rigby (drums) and Huw Webb (Bass), kick off the fourteen date tour, which also features Niki and the Dove and DZ Deathrays, in Exeter on 2nd October and finish up in London at Koko on the 18th October 2011.
S.C.U.M release their debut album Again Into Eyes on 12 September. A genuinely triumphant arrival, the album features ten stunning tracks that reel from glorious carnival-esque euphoria to a sound that occasionally flirts at melancholy and utter despair. Recorded in London with producers Ken and Jolyon Thomas the album sees the bands individual listening habits in psychedelia, space-rock, avant-garde and ambient soundtracks collide to form a pop trip that neatly balances the innovative with the rapturously danceable to great effect.
