We Were Promised Jetpacks: TAS In Session

by

One of the biggest (and oldest) New Year's Eve celebrations in the world, Scotland's Hogmanay, raucously marks the end of the old year and the beginning of the new (and Scotland even has their very own bank holiday for much-needed, post-Hogmanay recovery). The Alternate Side thought that the fast-approaching holiday was a fine time to visit the very special session that Edinburgh's own We Were Promised Jetpacks did for us not long ago, marking the autumn release of their sophomore album, In the Pit of the Stomach, out now on Fat Cat Records.

We Were Promised Jetpacks won't be idle this winter; they launch a European tour on January 14 in Opwijk, Belgium which wraps in early February with a rescheduled show in Liverpool.

The band — vocalist/guitarist Adam Thompson, guitarist Michael Palmer, bassist Sean Smith and drummer Darren Lackie — did a mini-set in our Studio A that included two tracks from the new record, "Boy In The Backseat" and "Picture of Health," plus one song from their 2009 debut These Four Walls, "This Is My House, This Is My Home."
