British Sea Power

British Sea Power would like to announce a concert event at the Embassy of the Czech Republic in London - to celebrate the release of their new single Waving Flags. This single celebrates internationalism and the allure of Central and Eastern Europe and has already been acclaimed by The Guardian as "The festival song of 2008."

BSP will play a full, amplified set, previewing their new album Do You Like Rock Music? - released on 14 January.

British Sea Power's Waving Flags single is intended as an optimistic, euphoric celebration of pan-European unity. The band's new album was mixed and completed over three weeks at Sono Records studios in the Czech Republic, working with Czech recording engineers in a beautiful location by the forests of the Krivoklatsko Biosphere Reserve. "We had a wonderful time in the Czech Republic," says BSP frontman Yan. "We hope that anyone arriving in the UK from Central and Eastern Europe has a  wonderful time here."

As Einstein told us, "Nationalism is an infantile disease... the measles of mankind." In opposition to
the Little Englander's besieged mindset, Waving Flags rolls out a lyrical red carpet to Slavia Prague FC, the 1933 Czech film Ecstasy and visitors arriving from other lands. Welcome, then, to the New  Year and the New Europe.

The concert will be attended by invited guests and competition winners.

This event is made possible with the generous support of the Embassy of the Czech Republic, the Czech Centre London and Budvar.


" Budweiser Budvar are pleased to sponsor the live concert by British Sea Power and wish them every success with their new album "
