To coincide with the release of their debut album, Everything Last Winter, critically acclaimed Fields head out on the road and play Norwich Arts Centre on Friday April 20.
Fields released three singles last year, Songs for the Fields (March), 4 From the Village (July) and If You Fail We All Fail (November). All three received great critical applause on their release, NME gave two of the singles Single of the Week status, while the Observer called Songs for the Fields “a contender for song of the summer, all scrumptious harmonies and bittersweet lyrics”.
In 2006 Fields also supported the likes of Snow Patrol, Editors and Wolfmother and have just finished another series of support shows, opening for Bloc Party and the Long Blondes.
Everything Last Winter was released through Black Lab Records last Monday and features the current single, Charming the Flames. The album was produced by legendary producer Michael Beinhorn (Marilyn Manson and Soundgarden).
Fields are lead vocalist/guitarist Nick, vocalist/keyboardist Thorunn, vocalist/drummer Henry, bassist Matty and guitarist Jamie.
