Edinburgh-based folk-blues collective King Eider debut self released single ‘Drink Me Dry’ comes out 10th of June 2013.
King Eider’s debut single ‘Drink Me Dry’ is the first taster of King Eider’s work a winding evocative late night bar lament to love lost, tumbling through haunting three part harmonies, acoustic motifs, bass and shuffling drums, through to a wonderful Neil Young-esque harmonica solo.
A talented five-piece hailing from Edinburgh, King Eider craft a modern sound rooted in stripped back musicianship and classic folksy influences. From the loud to the soft, the haunting to the upbeat, the harmonic strength of King Eider lies in their hearty concoction of late night three-part harmonies, acoustic guitar, bass, drums and classical strings.
King Eider have a resounding live history having plotted a route through shows in England and Scotland, including notable gigs at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s for Communion Records, and London’s Hootenanny. Backed up with live recordings and an encouraging introduction to a recording career through projects at Bainbridge Music, Edinburgh.

LA Alt-Rockers GIANT DRAG Announce Farewell 2013 UK Tour Dates
Annie Hardy – GIANT DRAG
A couple of months after front woman Annie Hardy made the surprise announcement that cult lo-fi LA alt-rockers GIANT DRAG would self-release their long awaited sophomore LP “Waking Up Is Hard To Do” through Full Psycho Records, GIANT DRAG have announced they will be heading to the UK in September 2013 for their farewell tour.
“I want to engage people once again and make the rest of the world care as well. Basically the last couple years of my life were pure hell and I spent it (and my “success” period of GD) a slave to prescription drugs, only to go to rehab last October to get clean” Hardy explains “Charlotte Froom and Tennesse Thomas from The Like will be helping me to reform GD for a select few shows to promote the record and say goodbye to the band properly so I can concentrate on my new project Annie Hardy and the Psychos as well as my pet project PnP who will also be finishing up recording EPs with Joe Cardamone of The Icarus Line.”
New record Waking Up Is Hard To Do received raved reviews from press and stomps, grooves and melts to a blissed out climax in all the right places, serving as an honest and timely reminder that sometimes after a fall, great talent just needs time to collect and take stock before it can breathe again.

Don’t miss out on your last chance to catch a beguiling underground artist doing what she does best with Giant Drag: “Basically flying by the seat of my pants” Annie smiles “for the first time in a while.”
Festival and European dates also TBA.
