    James Return to North America with New LP, Tour


    Mancunian Britpopsters James formed almost 30 years ago, and the band are understandably looking for a change. Rather than releasing their new album in the usual manner, the group have opted to release it as two mini-albums: The Night Before and The Morning After. While the albums are being released separately in the UK, the North American release will be a two-disc set called The Morning After the Night Before, due out on September 14 via UMe.

    Although they're intended as companion pieces, the two albums were made using very different methods. The band members recorded The Night Before individually, placing their tracks on an FTP and allowing producer Lee "Muddy" Baker to piece together the different parts. The Morning After, on the other hand, was recorded live-off-the-floor in a five-day session with no overdubs. Although The Morning After is the second of the band's separate UK releases, it will appear first on the CD set.

    James will be celebrating the release with a 21-date North American tour, including shows in Vancouver and Toronto. See the full schedule at the bottom of the page, below the album tracklist.

    1. "Got the Shakes"
    2. "Dust Motes"
    3. "Tell Her I Said So"

    The venues for this tour seem odd. The difference between a place like The Culture Room and House Of Blues is kinda staggering. Heck, even the difference between a HOB and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre is kind of shocking.

    James largely passed me by the first time around (except for "She's A Star" which is great, and "Sit Down" which was unavoidable)... but I saw them at a festival a couple of months ago and they were AWESOME.

    If you're even vaguely considering it, go see this tour. They were great showmen and really down to earth - the lead singer bent down in the crowd to let people stroke his bald head :)

    I'm already going to a gig that week AND already going to Atlanta the week before, between the two jobs, not sure if I can muster the sleep/rest for both and Atlanta's a bit of a drive. hmm. Tim Booth was one of my first celeb crushes at 13 years old. :stress: I remember seeing ads for them playing after the Millionares album at the time and stressig out, lol. 10+ years later will I finally go see em?!
