Longview to be Stripped for cover version download


Story: Jack Foley

MANCHESTER’S Longview are set to release a new single as a download and limited 7" on May 10.

The self-produced track, a blistering version of the Depeche Mode recording Stripped, will be the band’s first new material since the release of their debut album, Mercury, in 2003.

In addition, following their sell-out show at the Mean Fiddler earlier this year, Longview will play a nine-date headline tour of the UK in June, including London’s Astoria on June 23.

Stripped will be available as a download, complete with artwork from Longviewmusic.co.uk, and other music sites.

Payment methods will be credit card and reverse SMS at a charge of £1 (£1.50 for SMS).

The tour dates are as follows…

Monday, June 14 - Soundhaus, Northampton

Tuesday, June 15 - Arts Centre, Colchester

Wednesday, June 16 - Fez, Reading

Thursday, June 17 - Solus, Cardiff

Friday, June 18 - Mill, Preston

Saturday, June 19 - Venue, Edinburgh

Sunday, June 20 - Rescue Rooms, Nottingham

Tuesday, June 22 - Waterfront, Norwich

Wednesday, June 23 - Astoria, London

Stripped will precede the release of an all-new Longview single, In A Dream, in late June.

Penned by the band’s bassist, Aidan Banks, it finds Longview operating with a new clarity and depth after a Winter holed up in Manchester.
