DUNFERMLINE band Modern Faces have been busy working on new tracks in recent months and this week released their debut single.

Double A-side ‘Pravda Scrolls’ and ‘Cynical Brother’ was released on Monday following two sell-out home town gigs by the band at PJ Molloy’s last weekend.

The Fife gigs kicked off a new UK tour for the band.

Lead singer, Monty, told the Press: “We’ve been working away for the last three months getting things in place and it’s good to have it all come together.

“This is a promotional single more than anything, but it’s great to release it.

“We decided to do two nights at PJ’s as last time we played there we had to turn 250 people away.

“It’s always great for us to play our hometown and it gets us in the right frame of mind.

“The tour itself is selling out which for a travelling band at this stage is encouraging to see.”

The band’s debut single is released on their own label, Dirty Love Recordings, with ‘Pravda Scrolls’ a politically driven indie anthem full of dark guitars and brooding intense vocals.

‘Cynical Brother’ has a punchy, heavy guitar riff throughout with thumping drums and epic vocals.

The new release and the tour follows last year’s dates supporting Kasabian on tour, as well as dates

supporting The Charlatans, Shed Seven and most recently The Twang.

“You can’t really put a price on the sort of exposure and how much you learn from these bands,” Monty explains.

“The experience you get playing to a fan base that wouldn’t have listened to you before, it’s great exposure.

“This time last year was all the Kasabian stuff, but now we’re in a different position.

“We have got a full PR team round us and hopefully we’re gearing up for a very big year.”
