To celebrate their debut album's 10th birthday, and just in time for their upcoming US tour this summer, We Were Promised Jetpacks release an 'Expanded Anniversary Edition' of These Four Walls, including 8 previously unreleased tracks and packaged in imported 2xLP Gatefold colored vinyl.
The unreleased tracks feature demos (including the demo version of their hugely successful breakout track 'Quiet Little Voices'), acoustic sessions (including a cover of 'Modern Leper' by fellow Scots and good friends Frightened Rabbit), and live tracks from a very early gig at Barfly in Glasgow, which has since closed.
Tracked with Ken Thomas (Cocteau Twins, David Bowie) and mixed by Grammy winner Peter Katis (The National, Frightened Rabbit), We Were Promised Jetpacks' These Four Walls has become a modern classic, with the sort of peerlessness to stand as a mainstay and luminary of indie music in the 21st century.
Says lead singer Adam Thompson: "We started our band at high school. A few years later when we went to record our debut album we didn't have any grand expectations. I certainly didn't expect it would lead to us still writing and playing music together. We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to play so many shows to so many people over the years. And I'll always feel proud of writing this album, with my friends, that resonates with so many of you. We decided to do some shows and to re-release the record to help celebrate this milestone."
