The search of the XFM session. So a little while ago (Feb 12th) in the evening Frank's Xposure session was broadcast on XFM from their alldayer in January. Of-course, I managed to miss this after waiting for two weeks and listening to the radio. If you've got the session I'd appreciate if you could let me know and send it to me so I can host it on here. Tracks that were broadcast were: The Real Damage / Worse Things Happen At Sea / Romantic Fatigue / Sea Legs / Nashville Tennesse.

An EP is scheduled for release in May. Featuring The Real Damage and three new tracks.

Album out now! If you haven't already, go and buy 'Sleep Is For The Week' at a store near you. Frank shall be touring (probably) somewhere near you starting tomorrow, so go and check out the show.
