News: A Genuine Freakshow

One of my musical highlights of the year so far has been the discovery of Reading-based seven piece, A Genuine Freakshow. Having caught their fantastic post-rock inspired live act twice so far this year I am genuninely excited at the prospect of the release of their debut album, Oftentimes, which is due to hit shelves on 4th October. A special edition of the album, which includes a second disc of the band’s previously released material, is now available for pre-order from their website. For lovers of post-rock indie, I would highly recommend checking the band out and picking up a copy of the album (and yes I have ordered mine already).

Look for a review of the album here as soon as it arrives on my doorstep, but in the meantime check them out below (courtesy of SoundCloud):
