Cardboard Cowboy released their debut album ‘Unload Your Head’ on Monday 5th July and will follow it with the single “Bless My Soul” on August 2nd – both via the band’s own “Slapdash Records” label.

Recorded over a whirlwind 3 day period at Odessa Studios in London, the album will initially be available at Jumbo Records and Soul Alley Records in Leeds. Meanwhile, the band’s management are negotiating UK, US and Australian distribution.

The album is also available to buy at the band's website, where you can also hear the entire album on the ‘Cardboard Radio’ section of the site.

In addition to upcoming gigs at Kirkstall Lites aka CJ’s (9th July) and The Cockpit (29th July), the band have been confirmed to play this year’s Unity Day Festival in Hyde Park, Leeds on Saturday August 7th. They will appear in the Primrose Tent at around 3.30pm.

The band return to the studio at the end of July to begin recording demos for their next album.
