The Release Date: JULY 9th 2012 Guitar art-popsters Hatcham Social's new single from their much loved new sophomore party album 'About Girls' is going to be Lois Lane. To celebrate this event the Hatchams will be taking over Dalston Social on July 11th for a night of dancing and drinking free Lois Lane cocktails with its top secret recipe of herbs and spices. The ingredients for the Lois Lane single itself are rather less mysterious, however: recorded up a hill while snowed in a self-built studio in Mid Wales with producer of the moment Jim Anderson (Cold Specks, Blood Red Shoes) and a bunch of Russian microphones Lois Lane is fast becoming a fan favourite with its breezy Pulp-meets-Buddy Holly chorus and country Motown backbeat.

Singer Toby Kidd describes the songs inspiration thusly: 'Its a sweet tale of two girls, one Muslim and one Catholic-schooled, meeting in a chat room with comic book pseudonyms to escape the shackles of their backgrounds, and then falling in love. A modern day Juliet and Juliet living in a South London. Its about love and lust, but also friendship in the way that two minds find each other, like the initial melding and mischievous energy of Verlaine and Rimbaud'.

But dont just take Tobys word for it - here are some nice things some other nice people have said about the About Girls album:

Fake DIY: "a bona fide indie anthem in waiting¦a band not to miss" 8/10

The 405 (track of the day): ?ìit will bring your blood pressure down and put a smile on your face.¬ù

Artrocker (album of the month): "one of the catchiest and most addictive bands we've heard¦head-invading potential singles firing at you one after the other¦it would be the pop crime of the year if not enough people heard this amazing album"

BBC America: "combining strains of dancehall with post punk, Hatcham Social have perfected the catchy indiepop sound¦one of the top 5 UK bands to see at SXSW"

The Quietus: "loving Hatcham Social's new direction"

The Kidds are alright and currently out in Crete already writing more songs for the next album but you will be able to catch Hatcham Social's energetic live show at a selection of Festival appearances this summer and then when they go back on tour in September in the UK and Europe.
