THE SAW DOCTORS announce new single + tour dates
Single ‘Indian Summer” out Fri. June 22nd 2012 + Irish tour dates ANNOUNCED!
Having just returned home from a 6-week sold out tour in the USA, one of Ireland’s most loved native bands; The Saw Doctors, are ready to hit the road again around the country and have just announced details of a new Summer single: Indian Summer.
‘Indian Summer’ was mixed by Dave Bascombe who produced Lady Antebellum ‘Need You Now’, Natalie Imbruglia, Kylie Minogue & Manic Street Preachers among others. The strings where arranged by David Davidson in Nashville and additional vocals by Maria Scaroni, Eirini Tornesaki and Annie Rose Spayne.
"We wrote 'Indian Summer' about a beautiful trip we had taken on one of the finest weekends of the year to play the Cois Farraige Festival in Kilkee" Says Leo Moran. “We headed down Friday evening, with the windows and the sun-roof open all the way along the coast road. We arrived at the big tent, got our passes, listened to a song or two and headed up the town to see what was going on. We played there on the Saturday night, got a few in from the streets and wrote a song to commemorate the romanticism of traveling down the spectacularly beautiful West Coast of Clare”
Indian Summer is The Saw Doctors follow up single to their Christmas hit, ‘Downtown featuring Petula Clark’, which reached No. 2 in the Irish Christmas Charts, beaten only by the X Factor band, Little Mix.
George Mac Callum filmed a video for ‘Indian Summer’ at the Cornbury Festival in Oxfordshire last July, using a vintage green Volkswagon Camper Van. Click on link for video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksLBkeOUZnE
