9Bach announce forthcoming live album ‘Ar Y 9’

Following a series of single live tracks released from their 2019 10th Anniversary UK tour, Welsh band 9Bach have announced a forthcoming live album, set for digital release on Friday 17 July 2020.

The album is titled Ar Y 9a phrase which is the equivalent Welsh expression to “dressed up to the nines”— and reflects the band’s feeling after the addition of Andy Gangadeen to the line-up, whose more electronic sensibility and unique drumming style are evident in the recording.

Today, another preview track from the album ‘Pontypridd’ is available to stream and download, and anyone pre-ordering the album on iTunes will receive the track immediately.
