Tips For 2008

What with it now being 2008, I thought I'd share my picks for the artists I think are going to have a successful time over the next 12 months.

Los Campesinos! - Debut full length album is released from this highly talented welsh group. Titled "Hold On Now, Youngster..." it is expected to be released on 25th February. Myspace

Foals - Signed to Sub Pop records, Foals debut album titled "Antidotes" will be released in March. Really looking forward to this release which surprisingly excludes hits "Hummer" and "Mathletics".

Blood Red Shoes - Exciting twosome set to release their first long player, apparently named "Box Of Secrets" sometime in March/April. Check the bands myspace for details of their January/February tour.

Late Of The Pier - Signed to Parlaphone Records, Late Of The Pier are currently writing their debut album which should appear sometime this year.

Adele - "19" is the debut album from young soul singer Adele. Having already won a Brit award in 2007, this year should be even more successful for the XL records signed artist.

Does It Offend You, Yeah? - One of my favourite bands of last year, Does It Offend You Now will be releasing a full length album titled "You Have No Idea What Your Getting Yourself Into", sometime during March on Virgin Records.

Friendly Fires - Don't know too much about this band, just that at the tail end of the year they put out the awesome single "Paris", so im hoping for more of the same this year.

Hadouken! - Despite having mixed feelings when seeing Hadouken! last year, I'm still looking forward to the release of their debut full length album. The as yet unnamed album should be released sometime in April.

Laura Marling - Highly talented singer songwriter, Laura Marling, will be releasing her debut album on Virgin Records. The album titled "Alas I Cannot Swim" will be released on 4th February.

Operator Please - The UK release of Australians Operator Please debut album "Yes Yes Vindictive", is set to be the 3rd March. A full UK tour is expected in February. This band will be huge!

Outl4w - Incredibly young Punk band who have big things ahead of them. Hopefully will release some new material soon, checkout the following awesome track from last year.

Bullet For My Valentine - 2008 sees the release of BFMV second album, titled "Scream Aim Fire". It is released through Visible Noise on 28th January. And if the first single (21/01/07) and title track is anything to go by, its going to absolutley awesome!
