This week marks the release of a one-off split 7” from Stornoway and Ra Ra Riot.

Limited to just 1000 copies and artworked by Chris Bigg from v23, it marries respective album highlights ‘Fuel Up’ from Stornoway (taken from their debut Beachcomber’s Windowsill) with Ra Ra Riot’s ‘Boy’ (taken from their recent second album, The Orchard). Once sold out, it won’t receive a repressing.


Available only on 7” (AD 3X43), you can buy yours now from 4AD / Beggars Group (US), Barsuk (US), Insound (US) and Rough Trade Shop (EU).

Both bands are busy ending 2010 with tours and Stornoway are today ready to announce their first North American tour this November. Tickets for all shows are on sale now. Before that, the band will play Festival Les Inrocks in Paris and a UK tour. Please note that those wanting to attend the London date, this is now very close to selling out.
