Indie legends, The Wedding Present, are set to release a new, four-track, EP entitled ‘Home Internationals’ on the Spanish record label El Segell del Primavera, for this year’s Record Store Day. It is set to be released Saturday 22nd April 2017. Always coming out with something unexpected, the EP sees The Wedding Present developing the work they started with the intriguing instrumental tracks on last year’s critically acclaimed album, Going, Going…

The EP’s title is inspired by the ‘Home Internationals’ – an annual football competition between the United Kingdom’s four national teams: England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland (the last of whom competed as Ireland for most of the competition’s history). Starting in 1883, it is the oldest international football tournament in the world. The competition ended in 1983. The first country off the EP to get the video treatment is ‘Scotland’ above.

This year, The Wedding Present will be playing at various festivals, including the BBC Radio 6 Music Festival, and touring in North America, Australasia and Asia. 2017 also sees the 30th anniversary of the release of the band’s first album, George Best, and The Wedding Present will be performing the album live at selected dates, as well as releasing a new version of the album re-recorded by Steve Albini.
