"In its short-lived spell Dance To The Radio managed to stamp out its own identity, leaving muddy footprints on the landscape of British music.

The Leeds-based label unearthed countless gems, with the team focussing on discovering and nurturing new talent.

Hosting the Dance To The Radio stage at Leeds festival, the imprint has ensured that even in fallow times its name is still out there, still attached to fresh music.

Well, they're back. Dance To The Radio will re-launch this Autumn, with a new single from old friends (and early signings) The Pigeon Detectives.

Working with Richard Formby, new single 'Lose Control' is one for the fans - crisp, biting songwriting, it's set to go down a storm in the band's live shows. Matt Bowman says:

"We wanted to work with someone that would challenge us in the studio and put us out of our comfort zone, not let us take any easy ways out with songs. Richard did this and made us change our approach completely from previous records. We ended up ditching a lot of tunes that had a sound that could have been on the first albums as a result.""
