Guillemots Reveal New Single, Tour

New Video To Feature Gandalf

London’s own Mercury nominated orchestral-poppers Guillemots are set to return with a new single, accompanied with an extensive UK tour.

A blissful hymn to romance “Falling Out Of Reach” will be released on May 26th, and is the second track to be taken from the group’s new album “Red”. With an unashamedly lush orchestration the single is a grandiose affair, yet never feels over the top due to the track’s thoughtful lyrics.

The video for the new single features a guest appearance by celebrity fan Ian McKellan – best known for playing the Wizard Gandalf in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
