With their newest album Kingdom Of Rust set to drop on April 7 [Astralwerks/Heavenly], Doves will kick off their first U.S. tour supporting the album the following month starting in San Diego.
Doves have been recording their follow up for the past 18 months, having ensconced themselves to a farm house-come-studio in Cheshire. In doing so they teamed up with long time Doves collaborator Dan Austin to co produce all but two tracks on Kingdom Of Rust. For the remaining two tracks Doves enlisted producer John Leckie [Stone Roses Radiohead].
