Flock, which dropped earlier this year on Yep Roc Records, is Bell X1’s third album and the first to be widely released in North America.
The band spent the early part of the year on the promo treadmill, playing showcase gigs and appearing on “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.”
In March, during a well received headlining run that included two sold-out shows at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, the group endured every band’s nightmare – a bus fire after the third show on the tour.
The band emerged from the bus, which had formerly belonged to Tim McGraw, unscathed and with all of their vintage synths and Telecasters intact.
