ROGUE TRADERS TO RELEASE UNIQUE DOUBLE ALBUM SET, “THE SOUND OF DRUMS”
New album “Night of The Living Drums” combines with Greatest Hits collection for November 11 release
New single “America” at radio now
When Rogue Traders release “The Sound of Drums” on November 11, 2011, it will be an opportunity to look back on their vast array of hits, and look forward to an album of exciting new material. The specialdouble album set includes the Rogue’s first ever “Greatest Hits” collection and the long-awaited fourth studio album, “Night of the Living Drums”.
“Night of the Living Drums” will be preceded by the new radio track “America”, a hooky upbeat blend of dance and pop, which perfectly epitomises the sound of the band – both retro and future, it’s a timeless anthem in the making.
The Greatest Hits Collection represents the biggest hits and finest tracks from Rogue Traders’ ten-year career – drawn from their first three albums, We Know What You’re Up To, Here Come The Drums, and Better In The Dark – which has yielded sales of more than one million units world wide and six top 10 ARIA Singles Chartsuccesses. In addition to their massive commercial success, the band has been recognised by fans, peers and industry alike, scoring an ARIA Award, multiple APRA Awards and an MTV Award on their journey.
Rogue Traders lynchpin and creative maestro James Ash demonstrated his enthusiasm for the double CD release, saying today “Ten years is a huge milestone for any band. This record sums up what we’ve done so far – and also lays down our plans for the future!’
Ash and vocalist Mindi Jackson will hit the promotional trail through November to support the release of their new album package, and then take to the road in the New Year for an extensive national tour.
