Agent Blue bring in the new year with the release of brand new single ‘Children’s Children’ on February 21st. It sees the band explore their diverse song writing ability, a departure from their trademark angst driven anthems. This is another fine example of how a band of such a young age can surpass all expectations.
The single follows a stellar 2004 for Agent Blue which saw the Stoke quintet play Reading and Leeds Festival, have chart bothering single releases with ‘Sex Drugs And Rocks Through Your Window’ and ‘Something Else’ and then later in the year, to support the release of ‘Crossbreed’ the band embarked on many Autumn tours supporting the likes of yourcodenameis:milo and The Others (Others frontman Dominic Masters personally invited them to provide main support to his band).
In December the band played an impressive sold out Carling Live show at The Barfly (London) that climaxed with Calum dangling from the lighting rigs. A couple of days later at a sold out London Scala (supporting pals The Others) the band ended the show by jumping from the balconies into the crowd further increasing their growing reputation as an incendiary live band.
