BRETON announce their signing to FatCat Records, the label who discovered Sigur Ros, Animal Collective and No Age.

The signing follows a very busy year for BRETON, a year that saw them release a critically acclaimed EP trilogy, as well as creating fantastic videos (Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, Penguin Prison, Flats) and remixes (Temper Trap, Local Natives, IS TROPICAL, Chapel Club, Tricky, Esben and the Witch) under their bretonLABS incarnation.PACE MAKER [LABS cut] by bretonlabs

Breton have also announced they will be joining Tom Vek as sole support on his long-awaited UK tour later this month. Here are full dates:
13 June – Ruby Lounge, Manchester
14 June – Classic Grand, Glasgow

Straight after the Tom Vek tour BRETON will leave for Mosfellsbaer, Iceland, where they will be recording their self-produced debut album in Sigur Ros’ Sundlaugin Studio.

The as-yet untitled album is set to be released on FatCat Records in early 2012.

To give a taste of things to come, BRETON have made available a free download via their Facebook page; a demo version of a track set to appear on the forthcoming album.
