Who's Gonna Find Me
The Coral release their new single Who's Gonna Find Me on July 30th 2007. Who's Gonna Find Me is taken from their new album Roots and Echoes, due for release on August 6th.
The album and single were recorded at Oasis' Wheeler End Studios and produced by Craig Silvey (The Magic Numbers) during the opening months of 2007 and mixed in London throughout April. 'Roots & Echoes' finds the band invigorated after a period of soul searching following the release of their third studio album, 'The Invisible Invasion'. It was also around this period that one of the founding members Bill Ryder-Jones decided to quit touring with the group leaving the remaining members questioning whether they should continue. Four long years of touring had taken its toll on the band and Bill's temporary departure was the final straw. According to James Skelly, "If you take one person out of The Coral, it's just not The Coral anymore. By the end of the last tour we were falling apart." The band took a well deserved break and returned home to Hoylake, Merseyside. Eventually a period of demo-ing new tracks with long term friend and producer Ian Broudie along with continuous encouragement from the likes of Noel Gallagher enabled the band to rediscover their sense of purpose.
'Roots and Echoes' hums with the confidence of a band newly energised and at ease with themselves, featuring the trademark melodies and confidence which have led to over a million sales across an already stunning career.
The season 7 premiere guests featured some cast members we haven't seen much of for a while.
This year's Rotterdam event was definitely one to remember.
New album 'Flower Boy' comes later this summer.
