After a triumphant festival season which has seen Public Service Broadcasting playing to packed stages and tents across the UK, the duo return this Autumn with Night Mail, the stand-out track from their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Inform – Educate – Entertain’.

As well as new single ‘Night Mail’, the nation’s favourite corduroy obsessives have finally confirmed that the much-requested and oft-rumoured DVD edition of the album will be released on the same day, November 4th.

‘Night Mail’ takes as its subject matter from the eponymous film of 1936, a pioneering documentary film produced by the General Post Office and the Royal Mail Group. Setting the original words of the documentary – including the much loved Night Mail poem – to a song that evokes the rhythm, speed and excitement of the railway in the era of the steam train, PSB breathe a new lease of life into a gem of a film.

Forming the backbone of ‘Inform – Educate – Entertain The DVD’ are original films edited by the band and their collaborators for each track of the album. Previously these films were only screened when the duo played live, but after many fan requests, and a few cryptic hints, the band are pleased to confirm the release of their video material. The DVD features numerous extras, including short films shot on the road with the band, live at Village Underground in London, and in conversation with Time Out at the BFI’s head office, amongst others, plus an insightful audio commentary from J. Willgoose, Esq who talks through the ideas and stories which lie behind each track.

To accompany both the single and the DVD release the band take to the road for a full tour of the UK & Ireland in November 2013. This is what you can expect…
