05-Mar - Dry the River - OUT TODAY - SHALLOW BED


One of the most anticipated debut albums of recent time from a band who have been changing lives with their irrepressible live shows with the likes of The Antlers, Bombay Bicycle Club and Johnny Flynn. 

"Shallow Bed" is produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) and is currently garnering rave reviews from the likes of Q Magazine, who stated that the "mix of fearlessness, craft and believability is irresistible ****". 

Containing the singles "New Ceremony", "Weights and Measures", "No Rest" and "The Chambers and the Valves", as well as fan favourites such as "History Book" and "Bible Belt" as well as epic set closer "Lion's Den", this really is an essential soundtrack for the year, which will see the band headline Shepherd's Bush Empire this autumn and play a vast number of the summer festivals.

05-Dec - Dry the River - DETAILS OF DEBUT ALBUM, LONDON ELECTRIC BALLROOM SHOW & BBC 'SOUND OF 2012' SHORTLYIST ENTRY


Dry the River have announced details of the release of a debut album. Shallow Bed will be released through RCA Victor on Monday March 5th 2011.

The 11-track album was produced by Peter Katis (The National / Interpol) at his Connecticut home-studio during the summer of 2011.

"We were looking for someone who could strike a balance between lo-fi and hi-fi," says Peter Liddle, Dry the River's lead singer. "We wanted to record the bulk of it to tape, to use analogue stuff in favour of computer wizardry where possible, but without it sounding like an old folk record. I think we tried to preserve the fragility and honesty of the more stripped down tracks, but still get the intensity of the live show across too - to marry those two aspects of our music without it sounding incongruous."
