Third album ‘Klang!’ will be unveiled at London venue

The Rakes will preview their third album ‘Klang!’ at an intimate gig at The Lexington in Islington, London next Friday (June 27).

Recorded in Berlin with Les Savy Fav producer Chris Zane, ‘Klang!’ is the follow up to 2007’s Ten New Messages.

“The album is raw, playful, exciting, complex and schizophrenic – much like the personality of Berlin itself,” said singer Alan Donohoe, “it couldn’t be more of a fitting place to record it.”

Tickets for The Lexington gig are priced at £10.

The band will tour the UK in April, the dates are:

Tue 21, Brighton, Concorde 2

Wed 22, Portsmouth, Wedgewood Rooms

Thu 23, Manchester, Club Academy

Fri 24, Dublin, The Button Factory

Sat 25, Glasgow, Oran Mor

Sun 26, Newcastle, The Cluny
