British Rock Band The Outfield Return With Two New Releases In 2011

British rock band The Outfield is back with two new releases slated for early 2011. Nettwerk One Music has been working with the The Outfield’s writer/guitarist John Spinks since 2007, and has witnessed him put together an impressive set of songs that will comprise the first new studio release from the band in nearly six years.

Spinks reunited the band’s original line up--Tony Lewis (lead vox/bass) and Alan Jackman (drums)--at the turn of the year, and they have spent the majority of 2010 recording, overdubbing and mixing in various studios in southern England. The result is a powerful album that combines the band's original classic guitar sound with a more mature and developed sound, appealing to old and new fans alike.
