Peaking Lights's 936 Gets European Release, Sign To Mexican Summer In US

Previously released in the US on Not Not Fun, Peaking Lights's 936 will be getting a full European release on Domino imprint Weird World, followed by a string of tour dates in the UK and Amsterdam. 936 will be released on CD, LP, and as a digital download on 21 November. The LP will feature two fewer tracks than the CD and download releases, losing opener "Synthy" and closer "Summertime".

Across the pond, Peaking Lights have signed to Mexican Summer, who will be releasing a second album by the duo (which will also be released in Europe on Weird World) in spring next year. Tour dates are as follows: Amsterdam BitterZoet (3 December), London Plastic People (6), London Rough Trade east (9), Manchester Deaf Institute (10). Listen to a mix from the husband and wife duo below.
