UK Rockers Deaf Havana will release their first official U.S. album, Old Souls, on January 21, 2014 through Washington Square/Razor & Tie. Produced by the incomparable YOUTH (U2, The Verve, Primal Scream, The Orb) along with Lee Batiuk, Old Souls is available for pre-order now HERE (http://deafhavana.merchnow.com/).
Old Souls is packed full of gut-busting anthems, tear-inducing ballads and everything in between. The follow-up to their #1 UK Rock album Fools and Worthless Liars, the album has sold 35,000 to date. Old Souls was released September 16th on BMG Chrysalis in the U.K. debuting #1 on the U.K. Rock Chart, and Top 10 on the overall U.K. Album Chart.
Old Souls first single, “Boston Square”, has been called “The Hottest Record in the World” by BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe. The accompanying video has had over 250,000 streams to date, and the band has an overall 4.5 million YouTube views of their videos. Over the summer, the band performed a string of sold-out U.K. dates, including two Union Chapel shows, a Leeds Festival performance, opened for Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band at the Hard Rock Calling, and opened for MUSE in Germany. They are currently in the midst of a headlining U.K. Tour that wraps up October 25.
In support of the release of Old Souls, the band will be hitting the road in the U.S. for the FIRST TIME EVER with country mates Ash. The tour kicks off on January 27th in Seattle, WA and warps up on February 13th in New York, NY (tour dates below).
