The band also announced deals with 100% Records (UK/EU) and Dine Alone Records (US/Can/Aus/NZ) with whom they plan to release an EP in the autumn, with a new album to follow in 2014.
Speaking of the 7", bassist Chris Cain said, "The new album's finished, but we're taking our time setting up the release, and we wanted to get something new to fans on the sooner side."
"I guess 'charity single' is the wrong word for this," said singer Keith Murray, "since none of the money generated will go to a good cause. But in the sense that we did this because we knew some of the fans desperately, desperately needed it - in that sense, yeah, it's a charity single."
