A misshapen fierce panda one sheet

The Band: GOLDHEART ASSEMBLY

The Release: THE LAST DECADE / 'GOING DOWN WELL'

The Formats: LIMITED EDITION 7¬ł & DOWNLOAD

The Label: fierce panda

The Catalogue Number: NING 232

The Release Date: NOVEMBER 29TH 2010

The Truth: ** Goldheart Assembly are comprised of five young men who live in London Town. They consist of Jake Bowser (keyboards, vocals), James Dale (vocals, bass), Nicky Francis (drums, vocals), Thomas Hastings (guitar, vocals) and John Herbert (vocals, guitar). Some of these people have beards and look a little bit like members of ELO circa 1975. This may or may not be significant. In the next four months they will be touring Europe with Black Mountains, headlining Bush Hall in the West Of Londonshire, touring the UK with We Are Scientists in November and touring the UK again again with Band Of Horses in early 2011. This, surely, is extremely significant.

** In the midst of all this languidly frantic live activity Goldheart Assembly will be releasing The Last Decade on November 29th. This will be the quintet's fourth single, and their third on fierce panda since the launch of their lovingly acclaimed 'Wolves & Thieves' album in the spring. The single version of 'The Last Decade' is a remixed edit of the frankly epic album track and comes backed with the previously unreleased and distinctly effervescent live 'favourite' 'Going Down Well'.

** This fruity burst of Goldheart activity follows an already rollicking 2010 for the Assembly thus far. The summertime alone saw them lose a guitarist but make new friends a'plenty in the fields of Albion as they took their sometimes-mellow-ocassionally-manic alt.folk.rock sounds to Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, Summer Sundae and an inordinate quantity of quality boutique festivals in the West Country and the Cumbrian region of this sceptical isle. Indeed, it was frontman Ben Bridwell from Band Of Horses who was so inspired by Goldheart's shining sets at Reading and Leeds Festivals that he strode directly backstage to personally invite them on BOH's 2011 tour.

** Such is the effect Goldheart Assembly have on people confronted with and comforted by their blend of casually flawless harmonies and playfully passionate melodic outbursts. Not for nothing has a thoroughly Goldhearted Steve Lamacq become famed for his observation that ?ģThey take a joyous acoustic beardy bunch of ideas and mess around with them like a cat playing with a ball of string.¬ł Rest assured that Goldheart Assembly will be rolling that very ball of string around at these shows here¬¶
