Dive Dive announce new album and tour dates

Tilting at Windmills Following on from the success of 2005’s debut album ‘Tilting at Windmills’ (Diablo Music / Pinnacle) Oxford quartet Dive Dive are about to unleash yet another highly impressive slice of British Punkrock in the shape of ‘The Revenge of the Mechanical Dog’. Originally spawned from John Peel favourites Dustball (doing an impressive five sessions for the radio veteran) Dive Dive splice elements of early Idlewild, Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks among others to create something rather special and original.

In their short history Dive Dive have played over 300 shows, toured with the likes of Funeral For A Friend, The Ordinary Boys and Franz Ferdinand and been joined onstage by members of Radiohead.
