Broken Records / Freelance Whales – Crawdaddy, Dublin

Tipped Edinburgh 6-piece BROKEN RECORDS have announced a co-headline European tour with FREELANCE WHALES, to include a Dublin date at CRAWDADDY on February 1st 2011.

The indie-folk outfit, dubbed the “Scottish Arcade Fire” by NME Magazine, return to Dublin next year after the unfortunate cancellation of their Brazen Head show in October- called off due to weather damage at the venue. The band released their sophomore album Let Me Come Home in October. They have just been shortlisted for BBC 6 Music’s top 40 tracks of 2010 for their single “A Darkness Rises Up”.

New York newcomers FREELANCE WHALES make their return to Ireland following a triumphant set on the Body & Soul Stage at September’s Electric Picnic. Their debut album Weathervanes was released to great acclaim earlier this year.
