Gaz Coombes, once of Britpop lot Supergrass, has shared notes on his full-length solo debut, ‘Gaz Coombes Presents… Here Come The Bombs’.

Released on 21 May by Coombes’ label, Hot Fruit Recordings, in conjunction with EMI Label Services, the LP is preceded by a week by lead single ‘Hot Fruit’, the video for which is screening via the link below.

A generous Gaz, who’s also giving away album track ‘Sub-Divider’ as a free download, compares solo status to his time in Supergrass: “In a band, when you get a group of people who are walking the same path, it can be the most beautiful thing. But with this I felt it was really focused on just what I wanted to get across, and on my inspirations – whether it’s film, film soundtrack, or past artists that we didn’t really look at much in Supergrass. This is a completely blank page in a blank book, ready to be written on”.

In terms of live activity, Gaz is down to play The Camden Crawl, Apple Cart and Great Escape festivals, with a headline slot also booked at London’s Bush Hall on 25 May.
