Nottingham's six.by.seven have signalled their return, with the reformed group set to release a new album this year.
Forming in the late 90s, six.by.seven always faced an uphill battle. After all, British just doesn't do rock music, and the post-Britpop hangover was coating the charts in some pretty forgettable fare.
Playing a total of five Peel sessions, six.by.seven were able to build a cult following which propelled them onto the lofty heights of Later... With Jools Holland.
Stuttering to a halt, the band were sparked back into life last year by a chance meeting. Chris Olley bumped into drummer Steve Hewitt, with the chemistry flowing almost immediately.
New album 'Love and Peace and Sympathy' is set to be released on July 8th. Helmed by Chris Olley, the material was laid down in Moles studio in Bath with Dan Austin at the controls.

Fancy checking if they've still got those feral live chops? six.by.seven are set to play London's (soon to be dis-continued) Bull & Gate on May 1st.
