After more than a year of hard work, an Oban-based band will launch its album this weekend.

Crackin Craic is excited to let everyone hear The Other Side, which is made up of 12 original songs.

The launch will take place at The View, formally Skipinnish, on Saturday August 11 from 8pm.

The band is made up of Ruaridh Allan on vocals and guitar, Scott Sinclair on vocals and guitar and Ewan MacDonald on bass.

Speaking about the launch, Ruaridh said: ‘After a lot hard work, we are relieved to finally be launching our album. We’re excited and nervous at the same time, but can’t wait to let everyone hear it.

‘We’re very excited to finally get this out to the ears of the public and everyone who has supported us this far.’

The album is based on indie rock music with inspiration taken from the band’s idols such as Greenday, The View and Oasis.
