'Wasteland' set for Nike advert

Dundee band The View have been given a major boost by the news one of their songs is to be used in a new Nike advert (writes David Clegg, GrapeVine writer).

The Dryburgh lads’ song Wasteland, from their debut album Hats Off to the Buskers, will be the soundtrack to the global sport brand’s new football advert starring Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Joe Cole.

Meanwhile, the four-piece — Kyle Falconer, Kieren Webster, Pete Reilly and Steve Morrison — have also announced details of their new single.

Temptation Dice will be released through 1965 Records on Monday, April 13, and will be available on seven-inch and download.

Taken from their second top-five album Which Bitch?, the single was recorded at Monnow Valley studios in Wales with acclaimed producer Owen Morris.

The band recently completed a sold-out headline tour of the UK, which included a hometown show at Dundee’s Caird Hall.

They are now set to head to Europe in March for a series of gigs.
