It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Dublin four-piece Bouts. If you’ve been following them on Facebook and/or Twitter in recent weeks then you’ll know they are busy recording their debut album. Today we get a taster of that the album might sound like, in the shape of ‘Blind Red Luck’, which the band recorded why at NYU for the CMJ Sessions last October. You can see what else Bouts have up their sleeves when they support Come On Live Long at their album launch party in Whelan’s on July 6. They also play Indiependence in Cork over the August bank holiday weekend. Meanwhile, Irish bands, you have until tonight to apply for the CMJ Music Marathon if you want to head over in October. Bouts kept a diary for TPOE when they went over last year. You can read that here.
