Very much the opposite of their 2015 release, Rainmaker, the gents recently teased the new leanings with their “Crude Shrines” music video. A proficient musical team, each member with multi-instrument abilities, not only should you be excited about the upcoming release, but also the newly-announced spring 2018 European tour news.
Okay, so with all the fancy fodder out of the way… guess what? WE”RE DEBUTING THE BAND’S ENTIRE NEW ALBUM! WHAT!!!???
Drummer, keyboardist, guitarist and vocalist, Callum Gay, commented on the recording’s direction, noting: “We deliberately isolated ourselves when writing this album to force us out of our comfort zones. Most of the songs began as completely improvised pieces that we slowly fleshed and developed over time. We wanted to make sure that immediacy was captured and conveyed in a way we’d never done before. There’s much less between us and the listener this time around.”
