The guys from The Grande have two dates for your diary. Monday 21st November 2011 sees the official release of Bleaker St, which is available to pre-order from The Grande’s website at thegrande.co.uk/store We know it’s worth buying because we’ve been listening non-stop to our advance copy for the past two days and are really excited by it.
