Sparrow and the Workshop release new single ’The Faster You Spin’ on Song By Toad Records. The second track to be lifted from the Glasgow-based trio’s forthcoming third album, ’Murderopolis’ (also out 27th May), it’s another rambunctious offering to follow on from their ‘Shock Shock’ single earlier this year. ’Murderopolis’ marks an evolution of the band’s sound, pulling the rousing styles of Jill O’Connor (vocals, guitar, violin), Nick Packer (guitar, bass) and Gregor Donaldson (drums) together for an altogether more punchy offering. Having supported the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Lemonheads and taken to the stage at Glastonbury, Green Man and Bestival, the band are seasoned performers and hit this year’s Gnomegame Festival (06.04) before shows at London’s Shacklewell Arms (limited ticket showcase - 10.04), Manchester Gorilla (supp. British Sea Power- 11.04), Glasgow Mono (08.05), Edinburgh Caves (09.05) and then back to London at The Lexington on 23rd June.
