Well done You Lucky Lot!

Moving on... as I am sure you lot are aware, the lads have been in the recording studio for the past 2 months recording the new album "EPISODE XIII". And now it’s all done! Finally!

The album will be centered around a TV show (hence the title "EPISODE XIII") with the tracks "Previously" and "Until Next Time" taking their inspiration from TV cop show types. There’s even a news flash before "The Laptop Lifter"! There will be a video of one of the songs over the coming months, so watch this space!

There will be CD and vinyl versions, but yes, we know, we can hear you, "When is the release date"?! The CD will be released in the UK on September 6th 2019 on Secret Records, and the vinyl will be released by Randale Records around the same time. Releases by labels in various other countries will follow soon after. We'll keep you posted on this plus all of the pre-order details.

Meantime take a look at this wicked sleeve artwork.

So, apart from a string of festivals throughout the summer, The Toy Dolls 40th Anniversary club shows will start in early October to coincide with the release of the new album.

The 40th Anniversary shows will feature a selection of songs from the new album, plus all the old favourites!

The actual shows will be announced later this month. The club shows will continue well in to 2020, so there are plenty of countries to be added yet, but very roughly its looking like this...

October 2019 - German Tour
November 2019 - Sweden Tour
November / December 2019 - France Tour
January 2020 - Spain Tour
Management are busy working on other countries throughout the world as we speak, including the UK!

We will be back next month with more news on the 40th anniversary club shows and the new album video.

In the meantime, keep checking The Toy Dolls FACEBOOK as there’s gonna be little snippets of the new album over the coming weeks!

Until next time...

Wakey Wakey! The latest album video interview is here!

As for the new album, this is due for release roughly at the beginning of October. As this is the thirteenth studio album, it will be titled, rather appropriately, EPISODE XIII!
