Song Of Return launch their new album at the Arches, Glasgow on 4th June 2011.
Stemming from the creative partnership between Craig Grant and Chris Gordon (ex-Union Of Knives), Song Of Return’s debut album is hailed as one of the most eagerly anticipated of 2011.
Described as “a brilliant, malevolent soundtrack to some mad scientist’s wildest nightmare” by The Scotsman’s Nick Mitchell, Limits is a dark, unsettling collection of sounds which undoubtedly draws influence from the duo’s time working with production giants such as multi-platinum selling British producer Steve Osborne (Elbow, Suede, New Order) and Oscar winning producer Atticus Ross (Nine Inch Nails, OST The Social Network, OST The Book Of Eli), as well as a dark, industrial post-rock setting.
Garnering praise from broadsheets and blogs alike, their live show is equally celebrated; joined by members of Admiral Fallow, Otherpeople and Moon Unit, their music takes on a new intensity, with the band having performed in venues from King Tuts to a converted church and a disused seminary.
At this special launch night, the band will perform the album from start to finish, with the album being available to buy before it is released on 6th June.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
