Black Midi sign to Rough Trade, share new ‘Speedway’ EP

The new collection features the title track, and remixes of it by Blanck Mass and more.

After a year of buzz-building live shows and a thunderous debut single in the form of ‘bmbmbm’, frenetic London bunch Black Midi have announced that they’ve signed to Rough Trade.

The news comes alongside a new EP called ‘Speedway’. The four track collection contains a new title track of a single, along with remixes of said track by Blanck Mass, Proc Fiskal and Kwake Bass.

The band finish up their debut UK headline tour this week with shows in Dublin, Leeds and Southampton, alongside a London gig at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge for Independent Venue Week, before heading to Europe and then over to the US for SXSW in March.

They’ve also announced their first US tour dates alongside the SXSW performances.
