The Blueskins start the New Year with a new single and an extensive UK tour. The band, who closed 2003 in fine style with a clutch of dates including an uproarious set at the Eat Your Own Ears Christmas Party in Islington, take to the road in the company of 10,000 Things, The Cribs and Fiery Furnaces through the course of January and February. The tour comes to Leeds' Brudenell Social Club on Friday 30th, and as we have already reported the first 50 through the tour will receive a free limited sampler CD of all bands.

The Blueskins finished work on their as yet unnamed debut LP in the wilds of Snowdonia with producer Richard Formby prior to Christmas for a summer release. To coincide with the tour, the band release new track and live favourite Change My Mind on February 9th. The single includes the track I Wanna Know.
