Messers Bickers & Fij have announced the release of their debut album 'Broken Heart Surgery' released on Broadcast Recordings on July 7th, and a series of live shows to celebrate.
The album which will be sent out prior to release to the Kickstarter supporters who helped fund the project will be available to the public via the Pete Fij / Terry Bickers BandCamp webpage as well as through selected stockists.
Pete said "Well, it's been a long drawn out process to get here - a bit 'will-they-won't-they?' at times - like a soap opera extended story line about the delayed trip to the altar that has taken several years, but finally we're there...everything's in place - the vicar has the rings, the organist is in full flow, and Terry looks quite stunning - this is going to be our special day".
The album will be preceeded by a single 'Out Of Time' which will be released on June 30th, and the duo will be playing a series of live dates around the time of the release
