Anyone got any salmon? Carnivores new album.

Scottish three-headed rock monster Carnivores are moving their DIY record factory from the bedroom to independent label Smalltown America Records for the release of their new album, ‘Lets Get Metaphysical’.

The Paisley based band will be releasing the album on October 27th and will be available as a limited edition transparent vinyl and digital download.  In a bonus move, if you pre-order the vinyl, you’ll receive a download of the album immediately. Click here and you will get it right now!

I was also delighted to see that the vinyl is available in salmon colour, which I am sure was the colour of shirt I wore the last time I saw Carnivores in the Highlands.  Oh how I was ridiculed at the time - I was clearly ahead of the curve.

The band have also made a series of videos to give you a taster of the new record.  Here’s one for you now:

I’m currently giving my headphones a good beating with this refreshingly raw album and you’d be a lot better off if you did the same too.  This is the album you need on that dreary Monday morning to pick you up and shake the living daylights out of you.  By the time you get off the bus people will either want to know what you’ve been listening to or whether they need to call for some assistance for you.

If you want the full force of the Carnivores experience you’ll be glad to know that they are hitting the road throughout the UK over the next few months:

Schnarff Schnarff vs IndieNess

One of the highlands most hotly tipped acts, SCHNARFF SCHNARFF have announced their debut Ironworks headline show with support from Dunfermilne based Foreignfox and Inverness indie-rock act Searching for Donkeys.

The evening on Friday 19th December (yes that’ll be Black Friday taken care of then) will be rounded off with Inverness Indie/Alternative club night INDIENESS keeping things going until the wee small hours.

Schnarff Schnarff formed in 2012 and their debut gig was at Glasgow’s King Tuts the following year.  They have picked some impressive airtime courtesy of  XFMBBC Radio ScotlandBBC Radio 1Amazing Radio & MFR.  The 5-piece released their debut 5-track EP via Electric Honey in April 2014 and have since headlined the sold-out IronWorks Easter Showcase as well as appearing at GoNorth Festival in Inverness, Wickerman and opened the main stage at this year’s Belladrum Tartan Heart festival.

The Schnarff beys have told us they are hugely excited about their IronWorks headline show and as a special treat they are hoping to unleash some new tunes for their Inverness fans.
