ONI02 | The Exhibition | Debut Single!

The 7th of June will see The Exhibition release their debut double A-side single The Crown/Coma through Of National Importance Records. Available on limited edition 7″ vinyl and digital download, the release is made up of two brand new tracks recorded with Dave Sanderson at 2fly Studios in Sheffield. Copies are available to pre-order from the shop now for just £3.00 and will be available on all major download sites from the release date. You’ll have to wait a little while longer to hear the tracks in full but pre-ordering now will give you the option of receiving free Mp3s of the tracks before the release date or waiting it out to receive a free CDR via her Majesty’s finest footmen.

Previews of the tracks are available below. If you’d like something more substantial to fill your needs then two other tracks from the very same recording sessions, Lingua Franca and Balancing Act, can be downloaded for free by clicking HERE.

Meanwhile Bright New Worlds has been tearing up the webwaves, featuring on podcasts by Quack Spout and Pop Panzer recently, whilst the very first review of The Crown/Coma also coincides with our first forray into the Belgian press; read more via the lovely The Original Sin.

Finally don’t forget to check out The Exhibitions Myspace for a gig near you or join the Facebook group to keep up to date with their future excursions. If you visit the shop you’ll also find the remaining copies of Alvarez Kings’  debut single The Sequel on limited CD for just £2.00 – or download for an amazing 138 pence – plus tickets for The Exhibitions Sheffield gig at The Plug (cheaper than anywhere else).

Thank You.
