The Candle Thieves to support Badly Drawn Boy on October tour

| On 31, Aug 2010

The Candle Thieves are pleased to announce they will be heading out on a UK tour supporting Badly Drawn Boy in October.

The tour will follow the release of the perky duo’s forthcoming EP, ‘The Happiness Blues’ which is released on the 13th September, through Carnival Town Records. Fronted by the Casio-led pop squiggle of the deliciously oddball ‘Sunshine Song’, ‘The Happiness Blues EP’ continues where ‘Sunshine & Other Misfortunes’ left off, with more endearing and evocative leftfield indie-pop.

Since their introduction at the turn of the year, The Candle Thieves have spent the majority of their time taking their colourful toytown instrumentation to the kitchens, back gardens and local pubs of the UK, and playing high-profile U.S support slots with The Scissor Sisters and David Gray. They are currently holed up in their Peterborough bedroom studio developing the song ideas written on the road.
