Mike Lindsay (Tunng)  has recently been hiding out in Iceland creating a solo album with members of the local Husavik community under the name Cheek Mountain Thief. Mike fell in love with Iceland after playing Airwaves 2010 and decided to spend two months in the remote Northeast town ofHusavik, borrowing enough equipment to build a small studio in a cabin facing the Kinnafjoll (CheekMountains). The album was completed in Rejkjavik with a host of local characters: a male choir named after the Kaffi Barin pub, producer Sindri (Sin Fang) and electronica artist Mugison, who has toured with Tunng.

Released through Full Time Hobby Records the eponymous debut album drops 13th  August 2012. The album will be preceded by the first single, 'CheekMountain' ( watch the video on our Film + TV page )

A London show at the Purcell Room, Southbank Centre has been confirmed for 11th September 2012, where the band will be performing as a seven-piece, with more dates to follow shortly.
