De Rosa return to Dundee

derosa_310715_757We’re delighted to announce that the next Cool Cat Club/Manic Pop Thrills co-promotion will see De Rosa make their long awaited return to Dundee.

The show will take place on Saturday 23rd January at Beat Generator Live and will follow hard on the heels of the band’s third LP ‘Weem’ which will be released on Mogwai’s Rock Action Records the previous day (Friday 22nd).

After two critically acclaimed LPs on Chemikal Underground, ‘Mend’ in 2006 and ‘Prevention’ in 2009, the band split only to reconvene several years later.

Initially the band worked behind the scenes on recording their third LP returning to live performance with a show at Kid Canaveral’s Christmas Baubles in December 2013.

Shows have been intermittent since but the band are returning to full active duty with a string of Scottish dates to promote the new record.

Now officially a three piece, Martin John Henry (Guitar/vocals), James Woodside (bass) and Neil Woodside (drums), De Rosa have been joined on stage for this year’s shows by Gillian Fleetwood.

More info on the Dundee show on the Facebook event page.

Tickets are only available online for now here. More info on the show to follow.
