Recently, a strange online campaign to boycott Idlewild members’ side projects was launched in the hope that Idlewild would return to record new material. You can read more about this on Rod responded with an open letter to fans, which can be read on The Birthday Suit’s Facebook page.

However, this hasn’t stopped the band who are currently on a UK tour to help promote the single. Tour dates can be found on the band’s official website.

A Bigger World is the first single from the band’s third album A Hollow Hole Of Riches, which will be released on 3rd March 2014. With their first two albums, Rod was finding his feet after Idlewild announced their indefinite hiatus but this is a more cohesive sound. The Birthday Suit are very much in keeping with Scotland’s finest musical exports, writing tunes that are exciting and diverse, songs brewed with heart and passion, which tell stories, hearts on sleeves for all to see.

A Bigger World sets the scene for the album’s overall theme of isolation, as each one of us exists within our own small world, but that’s not to say the lyrics are bleak – far from it. It’s a celebration of diversity, and the constantly shifting nature of perspective.

A Bigger World is out now and available to download free with all pre-orders of the album, for more information, visit The Birthday Suit’s official website.
