Counter to Release Submotion Orchestra Album, 'Alium' on 3 November

Submotion Orchestra, the Leeds based 7-piece live electronica outfit, have announced details of the forthcoming third album Alium to be released on 3 November via Counter Records.

Order your copy of the album on 2LP, CD and download from the Ninjashop and iTunes, to download new track City Lights instantly.

Bigger, brighter and bolder than ever Alium sees the band in expansive mood as the interplay between their electronic and acoustic sounds more natural than ever and Ruby Wood's vocals continue to find new levels of emotion.

Written over two years in the remote Welsh countryside with just 'passing sheep and a rusty ping-pong table for company' and recorded in Brighton, Alium’s 12 songs run the range from neon synth strafed electronica to bruising 21st Century Soul via tense cinematic instrumentals and uplifting urban pop.

With a busy summer schedule that will see the band play over a dozen festivals in 7 different countries, Submotion Orchestra have also announced details of a 19 date UK and European tour this November and December including a headline show at London’s HMV Forum.

Alium released 3 November 2014 on 2LP, CD and download -
