Hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Scottish buzz bands such as The Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit, who have made it to the big stage. We Were Promised Jetpacks are ready for their next step, having just signed to Fat Cat Records. The 4-piece came together in Edinburgh as high school mates in 2003, playing mostly local gigs around Scotland before recording a well received three-track demo. The demo was picked up on big indie station's like KEXP in the US as one of their 'tracks of the day', as well as Q radio and other national stations across the UK. A recent tour of the UK in support of Frightened Rabbit strengthened the buzz following the band and Fat Cat Records jumped on the opportunity to sign the group. WWPJP's have an album scheduled for release in May 2009, with singles to proceed it. You can get a taste of the bands sound with the track "Quiet Little Voices" below.
