Public Service Broadcasting head into space

Public Service Broadcasting have launched a trailer for second album The Race For Space, which they’ll release on February 23 via Test Card Recordings.

They’ve arranged two launch events which take place at the National Space Centre in Leicester on February 26 and 27, with tickets on sale tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9am.

The title follows the format of last year’s debut, Inform - Educate - Entertain, which took inspiration from public information films.

The band say: “The new record will tell the story of the American and Soviet space race from 1957 until 1972 via the an eccentric mix of guitar-driven electronica, propulsive drumming and spoken-word samples culled from this uniquely rich period of modern history.”

They plan to tour Australia, New Zealand, North America and Europe during 2015. The first track from The Race For Space will be revealed soon.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
