We Were Promised Jetpacks

A young Scottish band. Only recently got into them, but they deserve promotion, they're ****ing great:

These Four Walls is brilliant.

My mate gave me one of their 7"s to convert for him, I quite liked it.

just got hold of these four walls, and i'm quite impressed.
i thought i'd hate the scottish accent but everything sounds pretty tight.
i think i'm gonna go see them when they next play to make up my judgement.

There's something about Scottish bands, and I dunno what it is, that makes them so effing catchy. This band is no exception.

They're opening for Frightened Rabbit in my hood next month. I'm pretty stoked.

Just discovered these guys myself. If no one has worked out Roll Up Your Sleeves yet I just might have to take it upon myself...

For me, i think they appeared as a facebook ad. I saw the name and just couldn't resist giving roll up your sleeves a listen.

Seriously though, stroke of genius that name is.

Holy sheet.

I saw these guys last night, and they were incredible live. My roommate and I proceeded to each chip in seven dollars and fifty cents to buy These Four Walls. Best album purchase I've made in a while.

Hey folks! I just saw these guys last Friday here in Montreal, playing with 'The Twilight Sad' and 'Brakesbrakesbrakes' and man, was it a hell of a show. My friend bought their record and got it signed by the whole band. I'll be there when they come back.

On a site note, I've been looking everywhere for tabs but with no such luck. I'm horrible at tabbing music, so I would kindly ask one of you guys to tab some of their songs.
Greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Ben.
