Light From Your Mac22/09/09
The Rakes release a new single 'Light From Your Mac” on the 9th November 2009 through V2. ‘Light From Your Mac” is taken from the bands third album ‘Klang’ and will be released as a digital download only. Both single and album were recorded at Planet Roc Studios in Berlin and produced by Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav, The Walkmen, Passion Pit). Klang is the bands most critically acclaimed album to date receiving rave reviews across the board.
After a summer of festivals The Rakes plan to play the following UK dates this Autum. Dates are as follows:
Mon 26th Leeds Cockpit
Tue 27th Bristol Thekla
Wed 28th Birmingham Academy 2
On working with producer Chris Zane, Alan Donohoe adds: "The album is raw, playful, exciting, complex and schizophrenic - much like the personality of Berlin itself. It couldn't be more of a fitting place to record it.”
KLANG is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed albums Capture/Release (2005) and Ten New Messages (2007).
The Black Keys have recently announced details of an album that will feature some of the biggest names in hip-hop!
