Press release ...

The autumn of 2009 represents an exciting and adventurous time for the Mercury nominated Geordie band formerly known as Rachel Unthank & The Winterset.

Having established themselves as the most innovative and critically acclaimed English folk band in modern history, with admirers as disparate as members of Radiohead, Portishead, Robert Wyatt, Ben Folds, Nic Jones, Ewan McGregor and Nick Hornby, The Unthanks are preparing to risk it all with another audacious step sideways.

While the abbreviated name reflects the long-established reality that the band is co-fronted by Rachel Unthank's sister Becky Unthank, the real development sees an extended line-up that includes string quartet, brass, percussion, tuned percussion, bass, and The Unthank's producer Adrian McNally taking on piano responsibilities from Stef Conner who returns to a PHD. Winterset key member Niopha Keegan continues on violin.

New album Here's The Tender Coming will be released in September, ahead of a 42 date UK tour that begins on October 10th, followed by overseas tours early next year. The album title is taken from a track on the album, in which the tender coming is the boat coming to press men into war, but the title also serves as a metaphor for the shift in mood from The Unthanks.

Here's The Tender Coming is a calmer, melancholic, warmer colour of sad than the intense bleakness of its predecessor; The Bairns , nominated for The Uncut Music Prize Mercury Music Prize and have one of the top ten British albums of the Year.

Here's The Tender Coming Is A hugely different album The Bairns to , though less intimate and Hopefully No minimum for all The Extended Arrangement ethic. It Is The sound of a creative team With No interest in The Laurels of resting it was critically and Commercially Successful Formula.
