Friday 12th - We//Are//Animal

It’s now been just over two years since this dynamic Welsh group began recording & gigging together. Their debut demo rammed album ‘Idolise’ was released late in 2010 and was nominated for XFM’s ‘best new music of 2011’. The record was released via Japanese label ‘Art Union’ who picked up on the band through hearing their demo’s online. We know them best for their highly charged track ‘1268’ which... featuring on the Dead Young Club Vol.2 10” vinyl compilation in 2010. The track was soon later also picked up for release via ’Too Pure/Beggars Banquet’, all only months into their existence.
The band also keep busy on the road having played BBC Radio 1’s big weekend, SXSW Music conference, sold out shows in both France and Italy, not to mention an array of British festivals such as Rockness, Wakestock, Camden Crawl and more. Additionally, NME, XFM, 6 Music, Radio 1, The Fly and Artrocker amongst many others have all praised the band over the last year having been playlisted or featured.

We Are Animal have returned to their native mountainous region of Snowdonia, North Wales to record a new album which the single ‘Royal Wolf’ has been taken off their forthcoming album and will be the first single to be released on the brand new label ‘Just So Records’ on Jan 22nd, 2013. They will embark on a 6 date UK tour supporting The Joy Formidable followed by the European release of the single and a tour to support it in March 2013.
