Now, if you don’t already bask in the glorious musical sun-rays of Ellen and The Escapades, then give yourself a gentle slap with a wet fish and then have a listen to their new single below.
1 EATE were Glastonbury Unsigned winners in 2010. That is actual winners by the way. We were (speaks quietly) merely in the final ten bands in 2009… ; )
2 EATE Are a 5 piece folk, pop, country rock band from, wait for it, Leeds, yes Leeds, where else.
3 EATE have just recorded their highly anticipated debut album ‘All The Crooked Scenes’ and it’s coming out on 16th April and are releasing a single of the same name on 2nd April.
4 EATE are playing 2 launch nights to support their album release, one at the marvelous Brudenell Social club in Leeds on 15th April, and one at The Lexington in London on 16th. EATE Live = Highly recommended!
5 You can enjoy a whole load of EATE goodness on their shiny new website, here: www.ellenandtheescapades.com. And why exactly can’t we have a shiny new website, huh?
And here ladies and gentlemen is their instantly catchy new single “All The Crooked Scenes”….
