Idlewild's Rod Jones is taking his solo project, The Birthday Suit, on the road in February to promote their recently released album, The Eleventh Hour and the brand new single release A Nation.
The album was released on November 11th 2011 on Sing It Alone Records and the single will be available from March 19th 2012.
With Idlewild currently on hiatus, Rod formed The Birthday Suit with a selection of friends and local musicians. The Eleventh Hour sees him deliver some of the most passionate, fiery and powerful songs he has ever written. It creates a sound that captures the sound of early Idlewild albums, such as 100 Broken Windows - a real treat for old fans and new fans alike.
