It seems like only yesterday we were telling you about Rudimental's latest UK tour and plans for 2013 - a (then) new single, a forthcoming debut-album, a lengthy spring tour, festival slots, world domination etc.
But things have changed slightly - that last single, Not Giving In", vaulted into the Top 20 Singles Chart and continued the impetus generated by the previous #1 smash, "Feel The Love".
Next week sees the release of another single and video from the band, this time the poignant "Waiting All Night". Set to a biographical film of BMX superstar Kurt Yaeger's horrific accident in 2006, the resultant story of losing a limb and rising above it all is the stuff of biopics and inspiration - and not giving in, to paraphrase Rudimental's last single. "Waiting All Night" precedes their much-anticipated debut-album , due for release on 29th April. "Home" includes a dozen tracks, some with guest vocals from the likes of Emeli Sande and Alex Clare with many tracks sure to be summer anthems.
You'll no doubt hear most of the album at one of their upcoming shows if you've been lucky enough to get a ticket - most of their spring appearances have sold out, except for Live at Leeds 2013 on 4th May (still tickets - £22.50 for the day), a headliner in Manchester on 8th May (available from £11) and a spree of festival appearances throughout the summer.
Thus, news of further live Rudimental action is welcome. The d 'n' b crew will play a selection of towns in the autumn, including Leeds again on 8th October, Newcastle, Bristol, Bournemouth, Birmingham and Brixton on the 18th.
[TICKETS: 17/4/2013 9:00], priced from £15 upwards depending on location.
