The View

Dundee-band The View are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album Hats Off To The Buskers with a 10th anniversary limited edition vinyl release for Record Store Day on Saturday.

The lads will also be signing copies of the album at Assai Records in Broughty Ferry from 10.30am before moving on to do similar promotional events in Edinburgh, Paisley and at King Tuts in Glasgow.

The debut album was originally released via 1965 Records on January 22 2007 and hit the number one spot in the UK charts a week later, leading to a Mercury Prize nomination that year.

The album rode the tail end of the wave left by The Libertines but injected the band’s unique, upbeat observational indie rock filtered through a Scottish perspective, with frontman Kyle Falconer’s signature Dundee accent.

Since their debut, the band have gone on to release five albums in total, 2015’s Ropewalk being their most recent release produced by The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr. and Gus Oberg.

The View embark upon a UK tour in May.
