The Rakes: New Single, New Tour with Franz Ferdinand

New Single: 22 Grand Job – 17th October 2005
Announced as support to Franz Ferdinand in November

The Rakes are set to release a new single 22 Grand Job through V2 records on 17th October. The single is taken from the bands critically acclaimed debut album Capture/ Release (Buy it from Amazon – UK or US), produced by the esteemed producer Paul Epworth and released in August this year. 22 Grand Job was previously released as a very limited 7” only release on the cult label Trash Asthetics in May 2004 and is a huge live favourite and a 21st century classic in the making!

The Rakes have also been added as support to Franz Ferdinand’s UK tour in November at the special request of the band. They are also headlining the Club NME ‘On the Road’ tour in September and October. All tour dates below:
