The Fauns will release album ‘Lights’ through Invada Records on December 2nd 2013. Lead single ‘In Flames’, also released December 2nd, has already been play-listed by BBC 6Music. The Fauns will be in London to play two gigs around release: Rough Trade East on Wednesday 4th December and The Old Blue Last on Thursday 5th December.
‘Lights’ is the successor to the Bristol band’s self-titled debut album (put out through their own Laser Ghost Recordings label), which, released in 2009 with no promotional muscle, went on to pick up radio support from 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and shift over five thousand copies purely by word of mouth.
Produced by the band’s own Michael Savage and engineered by well-respected Bristol figures Jim Barr and Tim Allen, ‘Lights’ pits the barely-there vocals of front-woman Alison Garner against atmospheric guitar work.
With an extensive major city European tour alongside French post-rockers Alcest (at the band’s personal invitation) already confirmed for early 2014, and headline dates to be announced later this year, ‘Lights’ may well see the full realisation of the burgeoning success of The Fauns.
A fill review of lights will appear on GIGsoup within the next couple of days.

Weds 4th December – Rough Trade East E1 (in-store album launch)
