Third and final album

Today Steve Perrin finally confirmed what had been mooted for a while - the third and final Distractions album will be recorded in Exeter, UK, in September. Like 'The End Of The Pier', this record will be an international affair, with Steve flying in from Australia, joining Mike Finney (still exiled in Yorkshire) and now-local lads, Occultation's Nick Halliwell (The Granite Shore) and Arash Torabi (June Brides, The Granite Shore, and more). 

This time, however, Dr Perrin will be bringing with him a new drummer, Ian Henderson, from even further afield. Many of you will be familiar with Ian as head of Fishrider Records in Dunedin, New Zealand, Occultation's sister label. However, Ian is also a renowned sticksman with The Puddle, the legendary Dunedin band who now reside on Fishrider. That's just shy of 50,000 miles combined for the round-trips the chaps will be undertaking.

There will be more news on the forthcoming Distractions album to follow (along with updates hopefully very soon on 'Parabolically Yours' v2.0)...

Keep track of the latest developments on Twitter by following @DistractionsMcr, and at Facebook at The Distractions - UK page, The Distractions (UK) group (head on over and try Steve's Pop Quiz!).
