Lightships follow up their truly lovely debut album, Electric Cables with a brand new release: the Fear And Doubt EP, which will be available on Monday the 30th of July 2012. The EP features "Silver And Gold" from the aforementioned Electric Cables album and three shimmeringly lovely brand new tracks which are unavailable elsewhere. All tracks were recorded with the same band during sessions for the album - Dave McGowan (guitar, Teenage Fanclub), Brendan O'Hare (drums, from the first incarnation of Teenage Fanclub), Tom Crossley (flute, International Airport and The Pastels) and Bob Kildea (bass, Belle & Sebastian).

Listen to the title track right here:

Lightships have recently played two sold out headlining shows in London & Glasgow, and also supported St Etienne in Glasgow. More shows are being planned at the moment, with a performance at Øya Festival confirmed.

The EP will be available on 10" and via digital download. Its tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Fear And Doubt
  2. Silver And Gold
  3. Cavalcade
  4. University Avenue
