New Single from The View: ‘The Clock’ to be released Aug 24th

Following a plethora of positive reviews for their new album ‘Cheeky For A Reason’ which powered into the charts at #9, The View continue their resurgence with the August 24th release of their new single ‘The Clock’ on Cooking Vinyl.

Produced by Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals), ‘The Clock’ is a gritty, yearning ballad infused with emotion that neatly encapsulates the band’s mission statement of creating an album akin to “Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ done by The Clash.” ‘The Clock’ was written by vocalist/guitarist Kyle Falconer, bassist Kieren Webster and Angelo Petraglia, the unofficial fifth member of Kings Of Leon.

‘Cheeky For A Reason’ is the band’s fourth after the Mercury-nominated #1 debut ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’, the Top 10 follow-up ‘Which Bitch’ and 2011’s Top 20 ‘Bread & Circuses’. The band’s most freely eclectic work to date, the album flows from the Celtic-influenced melodic rush of ‘How Long’ through the pounding punk of ‘AB (We Need Treatment)’ to the 70s-styled hybrid of piano pop and rich vocal harmonies that define the closing track ‘Tacky Tattoo’.

Irish Dates:

September

7th – Belfast, Concert Hall, Northern Ireland

8th – Cork, Cyprus Avenue, Ireland

9th – Dublin, Whelan’s, Ireland
