ACL Live & Transmission Events Presents: Belle & Sebastian with special guests Blitzen Trapper
Since being launched on the River Clyde in Glasgow in 1996 the good ship Belle And Sebastian has sailed far and wide on the oceans of international indie‐pop, stockpiling a treasure trove of gold and silver records, a loyal legion of fans and critical kudos by the barrel‐load.
The current line‐up has been in place for more than 10 years, selling over 3 million albums, releasing a dozen singles and playing countless sold‐out concerts around the world.
B&S repeated the formula of The Life Pursuit in 2010 with Belle And Sebastian Write About Love. Notable guests on the album include Norah Jones and actress Carey Mulligan, a long‐time B&S fan. In the UK, Write About Love equaled its predecessor’s album chart position of number 8.
The latest installment in the illustrious recording career of Belle And Sebastian comes with the release of The Third Eye Centre in June 2013, a gathering of rarities and B‐sides from the past decade. Then, after touring festivals this summer, the band intends to get straight back into the studio.
