The single followed the band's appearance at the BBC's Electric Proms season at the redeveloped The Roundhouse in Camden on 26 October, in which they performed the entirety of the album.[1] Three warm-up gigs in East Prawle at the Pig's Nose Inn,Ilfracombes Marlboro Club and The Exeter Cavern Club preceded the Electric Proms gig.
