Earlier this year, Bell X1 parted ways with their Island Records paymasters, despite the band flogging over 60,000 copies of their last album “Flock” in Ireland alone.

Many of those customers will be picking up the band’s first post-Island release in the coming weeks. Released on their own BellyUp label on June 15, “Tour De Flock” is a live DVD and CD recorded and filmed at the band’s Point Theatre show in Dublin last December.

For those who would prefer to see them live, Bell X1 play Dublin’s Malahide Castle on June 30 and Cork’s Marquee on July 1.
