Good news! Long-time Daily Growl faves The Young Republic are finally going to release their second album Balletesque on End Of The Road Records on 12 October. I’ve kept returning to this album for most of this year, and it just gets better. The indie kids who dug 12 Songs From Winter City are going to be blown away by the rock ‘n’ roll power of the new-look Young Republic. I’m hoping to have a track-by-track from the band to post sometime just before the album’s release.

And it’s not just the album, but gigs too! Unfortunately not at End of the Road Festival where they’ve been regulars lately, but in the darker months of October and November. There’s a British tour, with a London date in one of my favourite venues. Bonus! Confirmed dates are below; there may be more.

22 Oct    CARDIFF       SWN Festival
23 Oct    BIRMINGHAM       The Rainbow
24 Oct    COVENTRY       Taylor John’s House
28 Oct    GLASGOW       Nice n’ Sleazy
30 Oct    MIDDLESBROUGH    Westgarth Social Club
31 Oct    NEWCASTLE       Cumberland
1 Nov      BRISTOL       Thekla
2 Nov      LONDON       Cargo

Here’s another track from the new album. An alternative version is in the video above.
