The LP includes “If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You” which is the #1 most played song at AltNation and #7 on their top 18 countdown and “Everything I Love Is Going To Die,” which hit #3 at AltNation. The three piece will be playing songs from the album, as well as hits from their celebrated catalogue on their headline US tour which kicks off next Thursday, January 20.
Recording remotely from their respective homes, the band have been working hard to produce some of the most captivating, inventive and forward-thinking music of their career to date.With frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy in Los Angeles, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen in Oslo and drummer Dan Haggis in London, they discussed each day’s plan via Zoom, then recorded separately, sending individual files to producers Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers), Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey), Paul Meaney (Twenty One Pilots, Nothing But Thieves), Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag‘n’Bone Man) and Mike Crossey (The 1975, The War on Drugs, Yungblud) to mix into the finished tracks. “It was pure madness, to be honest,” explains Murph.
“We’re so excited for people to hear this new album! We’ve explored new genres and pushed ourselves further than ever musically. It will always stand out for us in our memories from our other albums as we recorded it across three cities during lockdown, and we weren’t all in the same room at the same time!” says Dan Haggis.
