Crime & A Woman_F1_FC FINALtDS Possible Single Covers_v4


They’re back with a Rockin’ n ROLLING mighty new album.

The 4th Dirty Strangers studio album #CrimeAndAWoman is the second release on exciting new label, Convent Records, based at The Convent, an historic hotel with a concert room in its chapel and a state-of-the-art studio set-up. It’s an artistic hub tucked away in the Cotswolds like a modern-day version of #VirginRecords Manor Studios with the musical family melting pot vibe of the 60s/70s Laurel Canyon based #AsylumRecords.

Lead singer founder member of the band #AlanClayton says, “it’s refreshing to be signed to a label that puts music first and treats it’s artists with respect, it has to be mutual.”

#ConventRecords boss #MattRoberts said “I signed the Dirty Strangers because they are the real McCoy. A tough, genuine rock n roll band and I look forward to them raising the roof when they play The Convent ” The Dirty Strangers recorded ‘Crime and a Woman’ at Clayton’s studio in #ShepherdsBush and at The Convent.

Clayton said “we are pleased to be showcasing our new album at a building where silence was the previous order of the day and appearing live on The Convent’s #Netgig Broadcast Channel”.

‘Crime and a Woman’ is released on 9th October 2015 with a digital single #STUFF preceding it released on 28th August. A bonus track #KeepAKnockin exclusive to this single features the late great @RollingStones sax player, #BobbyKeys.
