Port-Royal : Follow Up

Following up on my post for Italian ambient kings Port-Royal, the band have e-mailed with some information on their new album , some festival appearences and also some remixing duties:

  • They are currently "completing" their new record. It will be a ten track, 55 minute affair with "more elctronics and rythmns than in "Flares" and less guitars". However, it will retain the same melancholic feel and atmosphere. The band are hoping to have it out by the end of the year. Check out the Resonant website frequently for updates.

  • The band will also lend their hand to some remixing duties for the English band Televise and the Canadians Millimteric. The band are keen to point out it is their first time, but are looking foward to an "interesting experience"

  • Finally the band are scheduled to play in the Route du rock Festival, taking place in Saint Malo, France between August 11th-13th. The band have labelled this the "most important gig of the Summer and of their career!". The line-up is pretty excellent, with the likes os Mogwai, Liars and Calexico appearing. Port-Royal will perform after Ulrich Schnauss.

No news on UK dates at the moment, but with a new album out this year (hopefully), they shouldn't be far away.

Keeping with the Italian theme, here is how the magnificent Fabio Cannavaro and his Italian team-mates stunned German Football in last nights World Cup 2006 Semi-final. What a performance from the Azzuri.
