Following a self-imposed three year hiatus Sunderland, England’s Field Music are all set to return with a new 20 track double album on February 16th 2010. Powered, as ever, by brothers and co-frontmen Peter and David Brewis, Field Music’s line up now includes Kev Dosdale (guitar and keys) and Ian Black (bass).

Field Music released two acclaimed albums of unpretentious intricate beauty; 2006’s self titled debut and 2007’s Tones of Town both released on Memphis Industries/Revolver. Shortly after the release of the Tones of Town album Peter and David called time on the band playing their last show with Deerhoof in Leeds in May

The brothers sited the stifling “indie band” format as the main reason for putting “Field Music as a band” on hiatus and subsequently started working separately, but with a renewed vigour at their 8 Music studio. 2008 saw the release of two solo albums – David’s guitar heavy Sea From Shore album under the moniker School of Language and Peter’s highly acclaimed murder mystery themed Linn Drum, Fairlight and marimba affair, The Week That Was.

After lugging their marimba around the world for a year as The Week That Was the brothers started writing and recording together in early 2009 with the intention of releasing the results under the name Field Music. The new record, Field Music (Measure) will be released by Memphis Industries/Revolver on February 16th 2010.
