Vessels will release new single, "Two Words & A Gesture", on November 5th. The follow up to "Yuki / Forever The Optimist" will be available on limited 7" (500 copies) and download.

The Leeds-based experimental rock band have added a fifth member to their ranks, Peter Wright. Pete played much of the band's UK tour in July, including the Latitude festival, earlier this year.

Vessels have lined up some Leeds dates around the release of the single, including a rather special night with Efterklang and Caribou at the Brudenell Social Club on Saturday 24th November.

Early December will see the band jetting off to Minneapolis to record their debut album at the Pachyderm studio with producer John Congleton (Explosions In The Sky, Polyphonic Spree). The album is expected to be out early in 2008, with a plenty of shows to follow its release.

You can hear Two Words & A Gesture atthe band's MySpace.
