Camp My Tiger My Timing has been quite busy in 2012. In between gigs in England and Germany, they’ve been working hard on new music, both their fifth single and debut album. Whilst it seems like only yesterday when we first heard their early demos, time really does move quickly when you’re enjoying yourself.
Single “The Gold Rush” sees release from Monday 25 June, and their album, Celeste, is available from 02 July. Both will be on their Snakes and Ladders label. If the first few tracks from their debut are of any indication, they will continue to cement themselves as Saint Etienne’s snotty, rebellious younger sibling. “The Gold Rush” and “Wasteland” are equal parts post-punk and electro, wrapped neatly together as a pop confectionery.
Lastly, if you’d like to be in the band’s video for “The Gold Rush,” today could be your lucky day. Read on for more info.
