Remember the Vines?

No not the things where you get wine from, but the once everywhere Indy rockers from the other side of the world, fronted by Craig Nicholls...yep I'd forgotten about them too.

Well a release date for the forthcoming album, the band's third major release following 'Highly Evolved' and 2004's 'Winning Days', has been set as March 7th 2006. I think it is fair to say that the band's last effort from met with mixed reviews so it will be interesting to see what they can come up with now.

Tour wise, Craig's Asperger's Syndrome diagnosis, may have to be taken into consideration, and no plans have been made public as yet.

If you're not aware of what Asperger Syndrome is, essentially it is a brain disorder that causes the sufferer to exhibit autistic-like behaviour and struggle with communication and social skills. The singer's condition was revealed at a court case in Sydney where he was facing charges of assault and malicious damage. The charges were dismissed, but not before his condition was made public.
