After the success of their debut album Where The Heaven Are We? Swim Deep have released its follow-up, Mothers.
Singer Austin Williams says: “We’ve made a record, we’ve worked hard and we’re dead proud of it. We’ve called it Mothers as a nod to the true creators of the universe and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this next chapter.”
The band started this “next chapter” back at the tail end of 2014 in Brussels and London, the album comes off the back of two radio-acclaimed singles ‘To My Brother’ and ‘One Great Song Could Change The World’.
The bands singles would suggest a more electronic turn for the band compared with the more melodic tracks of Where The Heaven Are We? Released back in 2013.
Another change for the band comes in the form of James Balmont, a multi-instrumentalist who is now a fully-fledged member of the group.
The news comes after the announcement of the band’s autumn tour which will see some of their biggest gigs to date, including a show in Sheffield.
The Birmingham quintet – James, Austin, guitarist Tom Higgins, bassist Cavan McCarthy and drummer Zachary Robinson – claim to have reinvented their sound and say they will be playing much of the new album when they hit the road – as well as some of their old favourites.
Swim Deep kick off their autumn tour at The Leadmill, Leadmill Road, Sheffield, on Saturday, October 10.
