Along with the album release, Charlie Fink made a film that runs the entire length of the album, also entitled The First Days of Spring. The album was released on 31 August 2009, a little over a year after their debut.
Noah & the Whale played the 2009 Reading and Leeds Festivals on the main stage, as well as a number of other key UK & European festivals (their appearance at Latitude in July of this year has been widely touted as one of the festival sets of the year by both fans and critics).
