Elbow Announce New Record Details

British alt-rock act Elbow are set to release their new album, ‘Build A Rocket Boys!,’ on March 7, 2011 in the UK.

“I didn’t know whether it was good or not for a couple of weeks, but I’m very happy with it now,” vocalist Guy Garvey told BBC 6 Music.

The group’s forthcoming record was produced by keyboardist Craig Potter and recorded at Blueprint Studios in Manchester, England.

In support of the album, Elbow will also be heading out on tour in March 2011. Garvey remarked, “It’s impossible not to consider where you’re going to play your music live when you write it. We very arrogantly assumed we were going to be playing arenas very early on.”
