If you were a fan of The Fling’s LP When the Madhouses Appear from earlier this year, then you’ll be excited to know that there is yet another release upcoming, complimented by a rather extensive US tour. What I’ve Seen will be released November 1, and their tour started October 18 in California. The rest of the year will be spent on the road in promotion of their new disc, so keep an eye out.
