Crazy Arm - New single and December tour



Plymouth roots-punk quartet, Crazy Arm embark on a UK tour in December with London’s Apologies I Have None. To coincide with the tour, the band will be releasing a double A-side single (7” vinyl on Gunner Records, digital format on Xtra Mile Recordings). Featuring the Springsteen-esque anthem, ‘Ambertown’, and the bluegrass-influenced ‘Sweet Storm’ – with live guest, Victoria Butterfield, on joint vocals – the single is set for release on 13th December.

Crazy Arm have had a hectic 2010 that shows no signs of letting up. They toured for three weeks as support to Frank Turner (and Chuck Ragan) throughout the UK and mainland Europe; completed a label showcase tour with The Xcerts; embarked on two further weeklong jaunts to the continent including festival appearances in Belgium and Germany; and made appearances at 2000 Trees, NASS, Leopallooza, Reading and Leeds Festivals, amongst others. They are also booking a tour of Europe for mid-January 2011 with The Cut Ups.

Debut album, ‘Born To Ruin’, is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings (Gunner Records in Europe). The band are currently working on songs for their second album, provisionally titled ‘Union City Breath’, scheduled for release in mid-2011.
