New single, tour and album number two on the way from We Should Be Dead

The poptastic Limerick natives have announced the release of a new single 'Up All Night' on June 18

It may have been a little quiet on the domestic front for We Should Be Dead fans who were gripped by the 2007 release of the hugely successful single 'Forget Romance Lets Dance', and the album of the same name in 2008. However, things have been anything but quiet for the band.

Since, they've spread their wings and hit LA where they've slowly began to win over press and public, the four became three as they lost their bass player, they played showcase gigs at CMJ, SXSW as well as touring tirelessly, and despite all that, they now return home with a second album to their name and a home tour planned.

Details are yet to be divulged about the album, but it was recorded in a number of very swanky studios in and around LA with producer and ex-pat Irishman Owen Lewis who has previously worked with R.E.M, Snow Patrol, The Game, Killers and Lady Gaga?!

After the single release in June a tour will follow taking in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick. The dates are as follows:

June 30: Whelan's, Dublin

July 2: Dolan's Warehouse, Limerick

July 5: Roisin Dubh Galway,

July 8: Tower Records instore, Dublin

July 16: The Pavilion Cork,

August 1: Indiependence Festival 2010, Cork
