You might have heard already. If not, rejoice, indie fans, for Tom Vek is not dead, retired or rubbish - new news brought to us by Zane Lowe, of all people. He will, in fact, be releasing a new album this year and will also be previewing a new song, A Chore, on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show next Wednesday.

Six years since his much loved debut, We Have Sound, he soon found himself with a cult following who have been living off early demos and b-sides ever since. Rejoice, Vek followers, rejoice.
