NEW ALBUM

The Wave Pictures return with their brand new album 'Bamboo Diner in The Rain' due out on Moshi Moshi on November 11th. 'Bamboo Diner in the Rain' sees The Wave Pictures battling against the robot music apocalypse. The new album is a bluesy, boozy love letter to the guitar, filled with American Primitive instrumentals, John Lee Hooker chugs and Link Wray style minor-key surf music.

You can hear the album track and see the video for 'The Running Man' exclusively on Clash Magazine's website HERE

Paris, Halifax + DJing

We are very happy to be returning to Paris this weekend. Our last visit at the beginning of the year was excellent, and we are looking forward to playing more rock and roll, French style!

On our return to the UK we head to Halifax to help celebrate the 10th birthday of The Doghouse, who have been putting on excellent shows in Halifax for all of that time.

In November Dave and Franic make a return to HDIF for a rocking DJ set. This will be at a new venue, the crypt of St. Giles Church, in Camberwell. Come down and enjoy the sweet sounds of rock n' roll, followed by regular DJ Ian's collection of soul and indie rock and pop.

After all of that excitement then The Wave Pictures get back to rocking, this time at The End Festival. This is a series of shows in Crouch End. Check them all out!

Our final tour of 2015 includes shows in Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

the Songs of Jason Molina by the Wave Pictures

you may have heard the sad news of Jason Molina's death last week, but perhaps you didn't know that over the last year the Wave Pictures had been planning a tribute to help raise funds to cover Jason's medical bills.

they have been asking all sorts of people to record cover versions (which we will hear more about in the coming weeks) and recorded a whole album of covers themselves, which is available for you to download now (all the money from this goes directly to Jason's family, so please give generously)

here's what Dave has to say about the tracks:

"I hope that they seem to you like a fitting tribute to one of my very favourite musicians. I hope that you enjoy them, briefly, before they send you back to those mighty originals.

Please donate whatever you can afford, his family still need the money."

Thank you,

David Tattersall, March 2013"
