Helen Love Reveal Unofficial Euro 2016 Wales Single ‘A Boy From Wales Called Gareth Bale’

10th June 2016

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na – he’s a boy from Wales called Gareth Bale! And in honour of the handsome hero about to take Euro 2016 by storm, legendary Welsh pop bastions Helen Love are back with a new single in honour of Cardiff’s favourite son! It’s ridiculously catchy, a glitter-pop bonanza… To be honest it’s the best football-inspired single since Eat My Goal by Collapsed Lung. And you can quote us on that.

Following hot on the heels of the band’s long-awaited 8th studio album ‘Smash Hits’ (recently released to much critical acclaim on Alcopop! Records) – it’s yet another welcome return to form from the rabble-rousing punk rock superstars, who are once again redefining what true punk really means.

Drafting in pals from near and far to take on dance duties for the lo-fi video, and commissioning the cult smash internet-famous ‘Cheap Panini’ couple to draft the single’s punk-as-fuck ‘pencil crayons are better than image licenses anyway’ artwork… This is a single by the people, for the people, inspired by arguably the greatest contemporary footballer to ever don the dragon-red kit of Wales.

Love rarely play live, but have been dusting down their synths with shows at Le Pub and a sold out smash at The Lexington in London, and have pledged to take a look at rocking The Millennium Stadium if Wales bring home the trophy.

‘A Boy From Wales Called Gareth Bale’ is released on 10th June 2016 via Alcopop! Records

If Wales win Euro 2016, we’re planning the ticker tape parade party at:

Millennium Stadium, Cardiff – 11th July
