Perth-based indie rock band Tapedeck 45 announce release of debut studio album

Perth and Dundee-based indie rock band Tapedeck 45 have announced the release of their debut studio album.

The album, named after the band, will be released digitally to platforms worldwide today (November 26), as well as available for fans to purchase via Bandcamp on the band’s website.

Tapedeck’s album represents the first original album launch for fledgling label Heartstopper Records after signing with them in September.

Working with Marc Tindal of Open Eyes Production to record and mix the album, the release is the product of nearly six years of planning, creation and refining, and aims to show the world Tapedeck’s mix of tongue-in-cheek indie rock belying serious musical composition.

Fronted by singer Sam Stewart, with Andy Laurie on bass, Jordan Cruickshank on keys and Andrew Burns on drums, the album features everything from new compositions to old crowd favourites, including a new modernised version of their original hit single “Johnny, How Could You?”.

Sam said: “We’ve been putting these songs together for so long, performing them live and making them better and better.

“It’s absolutely amazing to finally be able to put them all together on record and bring them to everyone as a full-fledged debut.”

The band celebrated the launch with a live a performance at Mucky’s Bar in their local Perth on Saturday, November 20, ahead of the full digital launch.

Managing director Huw Siddle added: “The album is an absolutely stellar product, from an even more stellar band.

“Tapedeck have been with Heartstopper since the beginning, and it’s a delight to see them finally start to take their place on the stage they deserve!”

Founded in April 2021, Heartstopper Records operates on a mission to “bring back the joy” to professional music, working with unsigned and independent artists to ensure that they get the earnings they deserve from their creative efforts.
