‘Science & Nature’ UK Tour dates announced for October / November 2019

The Bluetones have announced the release of their third album ‘Science & Nature’ and the hits collection ‘The Singles’ (the latter available for the first time on vinyl) from the 19th July 2019 through Demon Records.

To follow up on the releases, the band have also announced a UK tour in October / November 2019 where they’ll be playing the ‘Science & Nature’ album in it’s entirety and other hits.

The Bluetones ‘Science & Nature’

Pressed on 180g Translucent vinyl and re-issued for the first time on vinyl since its initial limited run in 2000, Science & Nature was the bands third album reaching No 7 in the UK album charts . Released originally on the Super Quality Recordings label, the album is well sought after making the re-issue a welcome release for fans. ‘Science & Nature’ features the singles ‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’, ‘Autophilia’ Or ‘How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love My Car’ and ‘Mudslide’.

The Bluetone ‘The Singles’

Released originally on CD in 2002, ‘The Singles’ is now available on vinyl for the first time pressed on 2 x 180g heavyweight blue vinyl and presented in gatefold sleeve. The collection includes all of their singles from the period 1995 – 2002, from their debut ‘Are You Blind Or Are You Blue?’ through to ‘The Bluetones Big Score’. This collection pulls together the bands incredible run to hit singles during the period, including ‘Bluetonic’ (No 19), ‘Slight Return’ (No 2), ‘Cut Some Rug’ (No 7), ‘Marblehead Johnson’ (No 7) ‘Solomon Bites The Worm’ (No 10), ‘If…’ (No 13), ‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’ (No 13), Autophilia’ (No 18) and ‘After Hours’ (No 26).

Mark Morris - lead singer, song writer for the band - speaks about the releases by saying: “Science and Nature signaled a break from the recording habits we’d established on our first two albums, and a chance to express ourselves in a completely new environment, and using technology we’d not worked with before. Recorded in isolation, during the summer of the lunar eclipse 1999, it’s a record that captures the band trying our hand at new musical styles, and has a freshness and warmth that still emits all these years later. To have the Singles Collection get a release on vinyl is something that many people have been hankering after for years, and it’s truly satisfying to finally have the thing out in the LP racks at last.“
