Ou Est Le Swimming Pool Announce Album Plans and Chazzstock

Ou Est - Album packshot - Final SMALL 

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool have decided to solider on with their debut album "The Golden Year" despite lead singer Charlie Haddon's suicide a few weeks ago.  This news really makes me happy as it's one of the albums I have been REALLY looking forward to all year. 

In honour of Charlie, some of music's brightest talents are banding together for "Chazzstock" on Monday, October 4th at KOKO to celebrate Ou Est Swimming Pool and the great music they have created and the tragedy they have overcome.  On the line up for Chazzstock so far are The Kooks, Mr. Hudson, Kissy Sell Out, MPHO and Daisy Dares You - more artists will be announced as well.

Advance tickets for "Chazzstock" will go on sale for £10 and can be purchased from GIGANTIC.COM and TICKETWEB.COM. All proceeds will go to MIND the UK's leading charity for mental health support who work towards improve the quality of life of people who experience mental or emotional distress.

"The Golden Year" by Ou Est Le Swimming Pool will be released on October 3rd.
