Dundee band Kashmir Crows are champing at the bit as they head to Glasgow tomorrow for the show of their lives. The six-piece are headlining the legendary Barrowland after winning a recent competition and say they are “very, very excited” by the prospect. Lead singer Ian Black says: “All the hard work we’ve put in over the past six months has paid off.
“The work ethic in the band is terrific. Ever since I was young I’ve wanted to go to Barrowland but I always said I wouldn’t go till I’ve played there, so to get the chance now and to headline a gig there is amazing. It’s a youth initiative, young bands will be playing all day and then at night it’s an indie showcase.
“Our EP launch is on December 9 at Beat Generator Live! in Dundee, it’s called Still Howling at the Sun, and we’re working hard on getting our album finished now. We’re aiming to get that out in time for Christmas.”
The band are running buses to Barrowland so check out their Facebook page if you want to join the fun.
