Midlake announce release of new album 'Antiphon'
Midlake are set to release their fourth album, 'Antiphon', on November 4.

The follow-up to 2010's 'The Courage Of Others', 'Antiphon' will be the band's first release since the departure of their former vocalist, Tim Smith, who left the group last year. Midlake are currently streaming the title track from the new record at SoundCloud and the song is also being offered as a free download via their website, Midlake.net. Click below to listen.



Speaking about the album, vocalist and guitarist Eric Pulido explained that the band are going in a more rock direction: "It's always through the scope of Midlake, but on 'Antiphon' we wanted to embrace the psychedelia, style and nuance you might hear in bands from yesteryear while also being aware of music influences present now. The result was less folk and more rock. Less nostalgic and more progressive. Now the sky's the limit."

He added that after touring the last LP "we immediately returned to the studio, as we always did. With hindsight, that wasn't a good thing to do." They returned to the farm in Buffalo, Texas where they'd recorded 'The Courage Of Others', "but we knew something was missing." So instead, the band stopped recording and tried out new material in the live arena. "One show was Bella Union's 15th anniversary at the End of the Road Festival, which we didn't realise would be our last with Tim."
