Peggy Sue have announced that the next single to be taken from their highly acclaimed third album ‘Choir of Echoes’ will be ‘Figure of Eight’, which is set for release on April 14th. They are set to embark on a full UK tour in April following the recent US stint and have also just been announced for the End of the Road festival line up.
In the words of the band, ‘Figure of Eight’ is “the exception to most of our rules. It was written almost entirely in practices by the whole band and it is about as upbeat as a Peggy Sue song gets. It appears in my head as a sort of balancing act where each of the four instrumental parts is holding up the rest. Some kind of musical Escher diagram.
“It is about indecision and friendship and the danger of keeping your options open for too long.”
For fans of the TV show “House Of Cards,” ‘The Shape We Made’, a track taken from their debut album (Fossils and Other Phantoms), was featured in the third episode of the new season. As well as this, the band also made a new video for their previous single ‘Longest Day of The Year Blues’.
