Cardiff indie-rockers Tibet, renowned for their raucous brand of pumped up melodic pop, have announced the release of a double EP Above The Moon on limited edition vinyl, out May 23rd 2016 on both Alcopop! and the band’s very own label Rat Trap Recordings. After garnering support from the likes of Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, and Nick Grimshaw, the band are also releasing a brand new single, ‘I’ll Put You In My Pocket’, which premiered on PopMatters yesterday.

Shimmering with the kind of spangly melodies than ensure they’ll be spinning round your head for weeks, Tibet’s music nonetheless carries a distinctive gritty attitude – with a raw adrenalin-soaked edge to their anthemic rabble-rousing style, for fans of Cage The Elephant and The Coral.

Inspired by local venue The Moon, where the band cut their teeth, Above The Moon will be packaged with a run of brand new tshirts, exclusively available with the record.

This week Tibet will also be debuting their new single ‘I’ll Put You In My Pocket’, a live favourite recorded with James Kenosha producer of cult-hit albums by Dinosaur Pile Up and Pulled Apart By Horses.

Tibet recently recorded a Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens on Radio 1, which will air ahead of the band’s appearance at The Great Escape in May, and the band will be touring from March 2016 to September 2016, with appearances at Club NME, Latitude, Reading and Leeds, Bushstock, X Festival, Isle Of Wight and Truck.
