The Errigle Inn, Wednesday 26th November
The Lost Brothers 4th album, New Songs Of Dawn and Dust, is the start of something new for the Irish duo. Their previous release, 2012's "The Passing Of The Night", was the closing chapter in a trilogy of records that started with their debut album "Trails of the Lonely" in 2008.
Since forming in Liverpool in 2007 the songwriting duo has chosen to collaborate with other artists on each album, recording in Portland with Mike Coykendall and Adam Selzer, in Sheffield with Richard Hawley's band and in Nashville with Brendan Benson and members of Old Crow Medicine Show and
The Cardinals, respectively. So it's somehow fitting the band have returned to Liverpool, to record the first of a new trilogy with Bill Ryder-Jones, solo artist and former guitarist of local heroes The Coral, at the production helm.
Recording was scheduled to begin when Ryder-Jones returned from touring as guest guitarist with the Arctic Monkeys. "Everyone was busy so we waited til the stars aligned and then went for it! We felt like we had a dream team of pals to make the album we really wanted." explains Oisin. "We flew in from
appearing on Russian national TV in Moscow straight into the studio to record the record".
From the 30 songs written on the road, 15 were selected for the studio, recording 12 and 9 appearing on the album with three instrumentals. All recorded and mixed in 7 days at Parr Street Studios.
It's no surprise that gigs in the last few years with luminaries such as Brendan
Benson, The Frames, Billy Bragg, John Prine, Squeeze and, most recently, The Delines have landed them plenty of vocal support from their musical mentors & peers.
