Ahead of its release on Friday, Bell X1 are streaming their new album 'Bloodless Coup' in full via their facebook page.

A much less pop oriented record than either its predecessor 'Blue Lights in the Runway' or mainstream breakthrough 'Flock', 'Bloodless Coup' marks a slight change of direction for the Kildare band but its quietly engrossing all the same. Read our review here.

The band are set to record a special gig at the Guinness Store House this Sunday April 3rd for broadcast on American radio network NPR's music show The World Cafe. They'll also be signing CDs at HMV on Grafton St this Friday April 1st at 5.30pm.
