Teenage Fanclub Prep New Album

Published: 2005-03-09
Fighting to keep from being a memory of days gone by, the supremely influential Teenage Fanclub will release their first album in five years on May 2nd. The Scottish quartet have given the name "Man-Made" to the record, which will be the follow-up to 2000's "Howdy!", which caused many fans to raise an eyebrow.

To record "Man-Made", the members of Teenage Fanclub decided to take a trip across the Atlantic to record in Chicago. They worked with producer John McEntire on the project, who also happens to count himself as a member of atmospheric post-rock band, Tortoise. "Man-Made" will be Teenage Fanclub's seventh studio album, and the first for their own PeMa label.

Following the record's release, Teenage Fanclub will head out on a month-long tour of the UK in May. Together for an impressive 16-years, the four-piece will take the usual route around the island, hitting both Scotland and England; check www.teenagefanclub.com for a full list of tour dates.

Bursting onto the music scene with their 1990 album "A Catholic Education" and moving on to their greatly loved "Bandwagonesque" LP the following year, Teenage Fanclub have gone on to inspire hundreds of bands around the globe with their classic pop sound. Never quite as popular in North America as they are in the UK, Teenage Fanclub still remain a favourite of indie music fans.
