Hull based bdrmm have announced they have signed to Mogwai‘s Rock Action and will release their second album I Don’t Know on 30 June. It was recorded with long-time band collaborator Alex Greaves (Working Men’s Club, Bo Ningen) at The Nave Studios in Leeds. The band collectively had the following to say about their decision to sign with their new label:
“We’re so excited to have signed to Rock Action. After touring with Mogwai and forming such a close relationship with them, we feel blessed to have been invited to work with them and their team. To be on the same label as Arab Strap too? I mean, say no more..”

bdrmm have also released a new single, the first from the new album. Ryan Smith (guitars, vocals) said the following of ‘It’s Just a Bit of Blood‘:
“Most people who have seen us tour will recognise this track. The more we played it, the more it dawned on us it was becoming something special, and an integral part of our set. Lyrically, it stems from my recent mental health awareness. I’d become depressed and very socially anxious, I really felt like I had changed and didn’t know who I was. I am lucky enough to be surrounded by three of my brothers within this band – one literally by blood – and have always been able to be myself with them. It’s about realising what you have and remembering that when you can’t see it.”

The band have also announced a series of headline dates for November including their biggest London headliner yet at Scala. Details below and tickets go on sale at 11am Wednesday 8 February.
