Duels - Free Album Download
Myspace // "Sleeping Giants [Napoleon III Remix]"
We haven't written about one of our favorite Leeds bands, Duels, in quite a while, but that doesn't mean that we've forgotten about them. Their debut album was packed with a good mix of ridiculously catchy songs ("Potential Futures" and "Pressure On You") and more melodic and sensitive anthems ("Brothers & Sisters" and "Young Believers"), making it an easy choice for our year end lists back in 2006.
After months of looking for a physical copy of their sophomore album, The Barbarians Move In, without success, I went over to their website today... only to find that the band is hosting the entire album for free download to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the record's digital release! I assume it'll only be free for a limited time, so make sure to jump over to their website asap. Although I haven't listened yet, if the songs are half as good as "Regeneration" (the video above) then we'll all be in for a treat.
