New Pinecastle single and album from Irish group

I Draw Slow, the Irish 'neo-old-time' band, have released the first single, 'Valentine', from their upcoming album, White Wave Chapel on the US Pinecastle label. A video for the song, shot at the Hacienda Bar in Dublin and starring Irish actor Aidan Gillen (known for his TV roles in 'Game of thrones' and 'The wire') alongside Louise Holden and the band, can be seen below and on the websites of the band and the label. The single is now available to radio via AirPlay Direct; the album is due for release in Ireland this month and in North America on 8 July 2014.

Pinecastle Records rereleased I Draw Slow's debut CD Red hills in 2012; it wound up in the Top Ten of many 2012 lists. They have since made several tours in the USA, and are scheduled for two further tours in 2014, playing such prestigious festivals as Grey Fox, Merlefest, Rockygrass, and Pickathon.
