Scottish 5-piece The Dykeenies release their new single, Stitches on 10th September 2007 through Lavolta Records, Stitches follows the album, Nothing Means Everything released September 17th.
Scotland have well and truly taken the band to heart - the last single brought widespread coverage including a host of features in The Daily Record and a Scotland on Sunday front cover - and now with 'Stitches' The Dykeenies are ready to infiltrate the mainstream. Produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Idlewild), 'Stitches' is an anthemic and uplifting look back to the band's childhoods and its epic declaration of, 'Still I adore the taste of rain, and the bounce of bone on ground', is already prone to sparking mass sing-a-longs during the live shows. It will steal your heart and refuse to leave your head.
'Stitches' will be accompanied by a UK tour and London residency shortly to be announced, and will be available on CD, 7" picture disc, 7" coloured vinyl and download.
The Dykeenies are Brian Henderson (vocals & keys), Alan Henderson (guitar), Andrew Henderson (bass), Steven Ramsay (guitar) and John Kerr (drums)
The '12 Years A Slave' director will receive the accolade at the London Film Festival in October.
Critics from all over the world were asked to name the best movie of the past 16 years.
