BURNING SHAPES round off the summer with scorching debut album 'THESE THINGS HAPPEN' produced by Joe Hirst (Bloc Party, Ian Brown, Razorlight, Beth Gibbons) through Friendly Tribe.
The band introduced their sound that has been described as West Coast pop on steroids with a trilogy of summer singles over 2011/2012 and gained national attention for their innovative use of QR codes as a music distribution tool for the album.
Early singles from the album have already been finding their way onto BBC Radio’s Introducing programs earning airplay on local and national radio including a recent spin on Tom Robinson's Introducing Mixtape on 6 Music. Latest single 'BAD KARMA' has also been picked up for the soundtrack to the £2m British feature film Lucid coming out next year
Having already supported the likes of Mumford & Sons and The Stranglers, and performed at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend Festival the band continue to support releases with live shows and festival appearances in London and the South East.
