London duo Turin Brakes have been on the music scene for nearly ten full years, kick starting their career back in 2001 with their début album 'The Optimist LP'.

Now, nine full years later, the band are prepping the release of their newest and fifth full-length by the name of Outbursts. It's ready to 'drop' on March 1st and is followed by a healthy batch of promoting UK tour dates beginning on March 9th in Birmingham and ending in Brighton on the 27th after fourteen nights on the road.

A preceding single is also due on February 22nd titled Sea Change and stands as track number one from the new L.P. Speaking to The Last Broadcast, member Olly Knights had this to say on their ever-shifting sound and what to expect:

"As usual the goalposts shift on every conversation, mood, random comment, change in wind direction, bad/good lunch experience…. I think it’s safe to say it’s new and progressive enough to warrant bothering to make it but we are also trying to re-vitalise an acoustic edge. Using voices where synths used to be and mixing acoustic drums and percussion with electronic pulses, bleeps beeps and crackles. It’s been great having no time pressure from any label, it’s allowing us to really get to the bottom of each track, they are beginning to sound very layered, each one is a journey."

The track-listing and confirmed UK dates can be seen below.
