Produced by Owen Morris (producer of the Verve’s seminal Northern Soul and Oasis’ debut Definitely Maybe) in rural Yorkshire in two weeks during May of this year, it features on the band’s, as yet untitled, debut album which will be released in early 2007. The bands last single, Wasted Little DJs, went into the UK charts at 15 on its release in August.

The band, who earlier this year supported Primal Scream and played an incendiary set at T In The Park, have also announced a string of UK dates running until the end of the year. Recent dates have sold out in hours (tickets for the bands Edinburgh show on 1st September were fetching up to £100 on ebay) and much of the bands forthcoming headline tour is sold out, including the London Kings College show where tickets went within a day of being put on sale.

Already building a fearsome reputation north of the border, where their gigs are known to attract 500 wild-eyed Dundonian acolytes, the band formed in the Dryburgh area of the city some 3 years ago.

Named after the Bayview Hotel, the bar in which they initially rehearsed (they were subsequently banned from the premises for riding a scooter along the bar) the band signed to 1965 records in the spring of 2006 following the release of an extremely limited edition EP on local label Two Thumbs.

The View are: Kyle Falconer (vocals / guitar), Pete Reilly (guitar), Kieran Webster (vocals / bass) & Steve Morrison (drums).
