Following the immense success of the double platinum selling 'The Seldom Seen Kid', Elbow return with 'Build a Rocket Boys!' and are set to continue one of the most intriguing and heart warming stories in British music. Always one of the uk's most loved and influential bands, 'the seldom seen kid' saw elbow become one of its most successful, winning the mercury music prize album of the year in 2008 with the band being voted best british band at the brits in 2009. The band also picked up an nme award, a south bank show prize for best album and the mojo best track award for 'one day like this' which also garnered an ivor novello alongside a second ivor for 'grounds for divorce'. 'build a rocket boys!' is one of the most highly anticipated released of 2011 and features guest contributions from the halle youth choir, retaining elbow's strong links with both their home town and the halle itself, with whom they collaborated on a very special show at manchester's bridgewater hall in 2009.
