We are extremely excited to welcome The Wedding Present to Lost And Lonesome! Their much-anticipated eighth studio album Valentina will be released in Australia and New Zealand on Friday, March 23.The new album was recorded by the group in France, California and Brighton, UK during 2011 and mixed by Andrew Scheps [whose past credits include Metallica, Iggy Pop and Johnny Cash]. Propelled by founding member David Gedge’s perpetual broken heart and incisively brazen lyrics, Valentina turns a fresh page on the band’s noisy guitar pop tradition — one that has inspired several generations of canny pop fans and indie rock bands alike since their 1985 inception.To celebrate the release of Valentina, The Wedding Present will be making their first ever visit to Australia this April, playing shows in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne. As extra icing for fans, the band will be performing their classic album Seamonsters live, in its entirety. The Wedding Present recorded Seamonsters with Steve Albini in 1991.
