2013: SixToes – Low Guns (feat. Dave Gahan)
« on: 03 October 2013 - 22:00:25 »
This thread contains all news items regarding Dave Gahan's vocals for Sixtoes' Low Guns.

As you probably know, Sixtoes have already done remixes (or more like reworks, we should say) for songs of the Sound Of The Universe album and the Remixes 81-11 album, and it has been reported that Dave Gahan especially liked those remixes.

SixToes – Low Guns feat Dave Gahan: New music
Sextet SixToes gain a new member in the shape of Dave Gahan for this string-drenched, slow-building epic.
Daniel Cragg

Originally a three-piece, London-based SixToes, who have previously collaborated with Josh T. Pearson and Soulsavers, expanded to a sextet after the release of their 2009 debut album, Trick Of The Night. Ignoring the fact they should really now be called SixtyToes, the new additions to the lineup have given the band an added layer of drama and melancholy, especially on the slowburn intensity of their new single, Low Guns, which is premiered here and is the first track to be taken from the forthcoming The Morning After album. Clearly deciding that six members is still not enough, Low Guns features a temporary additional member in the shape of Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan. "Dave would always be very positive after listening to our remixes for their Sounds Of The Universe album so we invited him to sing on Low Guns and to our delight he immediately said 'yes'," explains cellist Anne Carruthers. "In fact he went one step further and also added a harmonica part to the end of the track." And while it takes a little while to get going – there's some tuning of violins to get through in the opening thirty seconds or so – the delicate progression from softly plucked guitar, to rolling drums to properly windswept, tears-streaming-down-the-face sadness of the final third is crushingly beautiful.
Low Guns is released on 18 November.

2013-10-03 - Gigwise (UK) - SixToes collaborate with Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan

http://www.gigwise.com/news/84731/Listen-SixToes-collaborate-with-Depeche-Mode%27s-Dave-Gahan

Listen: SixToes collaborate with Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan
80s legend lends vocals to sextet's 'Low Guns'

Lead singer of Depeche Mode Dave Gahan has lent his vocals to a new track by London sextet SixToes. Check it out below.
The song, called 'Low Guns', is an epic six minute string led slow burner that builds into an almost devastating, emotional finale as the as soft guitar and galloping percussion kick in, all led by Gahan's vocals, which sound better than ever.
'Low Guns' is taken from SixToes' second album, The Morning After. When the band released 2009 LP Trick of the Night, they were originally only a trio, but have gained three more members since the release.
Gahan, lead vocalist of 80s electronic legends Depeche Mode, said of the collaboration: "I always really liked the remixes that Six Toes did for Depeche Mode over the years, so when the band reached out to me about working with the band on 'Low Guns', I jumped on the opportunity. The band are exceptionally talented, the song connected with me, and I think the video is inspired and fantastic."
SixToes cellist Anne Carruthers added: "“Dave would always be very positive after listening to our remixes for their Sounds Of The Universe album so we invited him to sing on ‘Low Guns’ and to our delight he immediately said "yes". In fact he went one step further and also added a harmonica part to the end of the track.”
'Low Guns' will be released on the 18th November, with the The Morning After LP to follow in early 2014. SixToes will also be performing at London's St Pancras Old Church on 20th November.

From Stefan Krause Montalbert:
'Dear SixToes: yesterday afternoon I found a tape of "Low Guns" on the roundabout located in front of the Louvre Museum. I look forward to listening to it (need to find a tape player, so that may take some time). Cheers & keep up the creative work!'
No word from Berlin or Manchester yet....

2013-11-07 - Stereogum (UK) - Sixtoes Low Guns video

http://www.stereogum.com/1555582/sixtoes-low-guns-feat-dave-gahan-video-stereogum-premiere/video/

SixToes “Low Guns” (Feat. Dave Gahan) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The word “cinematic” gets tossed around a lot for the sake of musical hyperbole, but it’s a fine fit for the awkwardly named London outfit SixToes, especially when their ornately dramatic folk-rock is set to a video like this one. The visuals for “Low Guns,” the sextet’s recent collaboration with Depeche Mode singer Dave Gahan from forthcoming sophomore LP The Morning After, pay homage to Straylight’s short film “Glide2.” Like that clip, director Henry Cowling’s “Low Guns” video follows a single extended shot through a London train station, but this one involved coordinating a cast of dozens of fake military officers, dancers, circus performers and the members of SixToes themselves in slow-motion. Shot from the perspective of a high-speed train car (or “tube carriage” as they’re called over there) at the Ravenscourt Park court station, the clip spreads seven seconds of footage into three-and-a-half incredible minutes. The song is a masterpiece in its own right, and the video only multiplies the excellence. Watch it!
