Welcoming The Distractions

From the new Distractions page on the Occultation Recordings website:

Occultation Recordings take great pleasure in welcoming The Distractions to the label.

The first release will be the Black Velvet EP, due in September 2010. This will be a digital download release but we will also have a limited number of promo CDs available for purchase.

It will be followed not too long afterwards by the band's first new single for almost 30 years, featuring three tracks recorded in Liverpool in June 2010 and featuring original members Mike Finney (vocals) and Steve Perrin (guitar, vocals), plus another former Distraction Nick Garside (bass), joined by Nick Halliwell from The Granite Shore (guitar, vocals), Stuart Mann (drums) and Richard Turvey of The Wild Swans (keyboards).

More to follow soon...

In the meantime, here's a tiny taster - the catalogue number for the Black Velvet promo CD, YMIR7DA007CD:
