Lost Map are pleased to announce that our spiritual captain, Pictish Trail, has signed to Fire Records. As you can see from the photo above, he's so overwhelmed with excitement that he is expelling a viscous pink liquid. This doesn't mean he's abandoning Lost Map, but rather tying our DIY dinghy to a much sturdier vessel.
There'll be more news to come, but in the meantime here's an official line from the man himself:
"Verrrrry much looking forward to continuing the sonic adventures of Pictish Trail with the good people of Fire Records and my Lost Map family.”
And there you have it.
To celebrate, our Picty is heading out on a never ending tour. First up there's a batch of solo dates, supporting KT Tunstall around Europe, followed by some full band appearances at events in Paisley, Aberfeldy, Stirling and Edinburgh, mixed in with some stripped-back three-piece shows, on his headline UK tour Winter Rewind Acid Reflux.
You can check out all the dates, below the video for 'Far Gone (Don't Leave)' ... which conveniently contains PT next to some FIRE.
