With their headline UK tour on the horizon and this week's 6Music Rebel Playlist win under their belts, This Many Boyfriends are warming up and preparing to unleash their debut album full of infectious indie-pop ditties and odes to their musical libraries.

The band's self-titled debut is released on October 8th through Angular Recording Corporation, and it will be preceded by the Ryan Jarman-produced single 'Number One' on October 1st. Listen to the track below:

Recorded and mixed at Edwyn Collins' West Heath Studios in London across three intensive weekends, this album is This Many Boyfriends' love letter to their record collections, a tribute to the catchiest and most vibrant moments they could find amongst their most treasured post-punk, C86 and Motown 45s.

To launch the single and album, This Many Boyfriends will be playing at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on 11th October.
