EARL have been selected from over 2000 bands who submitted demos to be considered for Glastonbury festival 2004. The band has been short listed along with just five others to play a showcase in Glastonbury in May. A panel consisting of A&R, artists and festival organisers will choose their favourite. The chosen band will play the dance tent at Glastonbury 2004.
EARL have contributed a track to the 'Ten From Ten' compilation. The album features ten current Manchester bands covering tracks by pioneering Mancunians such as New Order, the Smiths, Magazine, Joy Division, etc. EARL have chosen New rder's 'Regret' and have received excellent and promising feedback so far. ‘Ten From Ten’ is endorsed by John Squire, who also provides the artwork.
EARL are planning a single release in June 2004 on Manchester's Fat Northerner Records. The single is rumoured to be live favourite 'Broken Halo' but the band are currently churning out new material at an impressive rate so who knows?!! The release will be accompanied by a tour.
