The Screening session on The Beat on BBC Leicester

The Screening perform 'Diem' acoustically in The Beat studio

Leicester-based band, The Screening, spoke to BBC Leicester's Dean Jackson on The Beat about the new direction the four-piece are taking for 2010.

Having parted ways with American label, Intravenous Records, the band have returned home to their UK fans and are preparing for the new album release.

Latest single 'Diem' is a revamped arrangement of an earlier demo mixed by Mark Needham who counts Blondie, Fleetwood Mac, The Killers, Bloc Party and We Are Scientist among his happy customers.

The Screening perform their potential third single 'Through My Telescope'

'Diem' has recently been featured in the trailer for the Hilary Duff and Steve Coogan film 'What Goes Up', while past single 'Fall To Pieces' was also used in a preview, for Jean Claude Van Damme Film 'The Shepherd'.

Drummer, Owen Ross said the band were happy to have the financial backing of their new label to help promote the band to a wider audience.

"It's great to have the people at Telescope Records onboard and having all the opportunities that they can give us. It's all looking very good."

'Through My Telescope' is likely to be the third single from The Screening's forthcoming album 'We'd All Better Learn How To Swim'.

Catch The Beat every Saturday from 18:00 to 22:00 on BBC Leicester - 104.9FM, DAB, and on BBC iPlayer.
