Dover and Deal band the Old Country Crows release video online to mark the album launch they had to cancel

A Kent band due to celebrate the launch of their second album next week are hoping they can still spread some cheer with their music online.

East Kent based band the Old Country Crows had been planning to hold an album launch at the New Inn in Sandwich next weekend, to mark the release of their new album, Behind the Rain.

As a result of the current lockdown, the event will not be going ahead, but the Dover and Deal-based group, who play a mix of country, bluegrass, folk and rock, are keeping upbeat, releasing a video of the album's opening song, That's All I Know, which was partly filmed at the Dancing Dog Saloon in Bobbing, Sittingbourne.

Lead singer/guitarist Gary Virtue said: "Our new video online is for the opening song on the new album. We think it's pretty good, so it may cheer up a few people in this current climate."

The group has been together since 2010, after being formed by old friends Gary and Mark Griffiths, and write and perform their own songs.

The line-up is completed by Ian Bottle on bass guitar and Craig Wild on drums and percussion.

The new album follows the release of their debut album back in 2013, as well as a five-track Christmas EP in 2017. It contains 14 original songs. Watch the video here:
