New Release & Tour: Stornoway – Dig The Mountain! / Trouble With The Green

We’re delighted to share the news that Stornoway are back!

On social media yesterday, frontman Brian Briggs and co. announced the news, by stating: “Today we can share some very happy news at long last. After 6 years, we are back! The new Stornoway album “Dig The Mountain!” will be with you on 8th September.”

The band also released a band new single, titled ‘Trouble With The Green’ – take a listen below…

In a statement about their return and new release, Briggs said: “Stornoway did not exist. I was creating with no goal or plan and it was exhilarating. I am a playful person and I got completely lost in the adventure of songwriting, not knowing where a song might take me, what feelings I might discover and how they might turn into sound. Every song was an emotional and physical journey I was only partly in control of. Once I got the taste of a song forming, I was completely hooked. I would disappear in it for days, emerging from the shed as high as a kite, with the sea roaring in the distance and no light but the blinking stars.”

Finally, he band have announced their first tour in over 6 years. Tickets go on pre-sale at 10am next Wednesday 19th April. You can pre-order the new album from their official store on any format by 4pm Tuesday 18th April to get access to the tour pre-sale –
