Speaking previously about the LP, the band described the record as a “mix of genres”, with singer Ellie Rowsell telling NME that “It’s 100 percent not a grunge record. It’s a much braver record than that”.

Rowsell added: “We’ve been making sounds that don’t necessarily sound like guitar and experimenting with the way we use our voices. We’ve tried to match the emotion of the songs in how they’re performed and recorded, tried to make a sad song really feel and sound sad.”

Drummer Joel Amey continued that fans would be surprised by the sounds on the record, “because they surprised me when listening back to them. I’m kind of shocked we’ve made certain sounds – they’re really experimental and poppy. ‘What a guitar band can do’, in inverted commas, or what’s expected of us, we don’t want to settle for that.”

Meanwhile, Everything Everything release their third album, ‘Get To Heaven’.

The album is the latest record from the band, following the release of 2010’s ‘Man Alive’ and 2013’s ‘Arc’.

The band recently confirmed a series of live dates for later this year. They will kick things off in Cardiff on November 7, before heading to Bexhill, Portsmouth, Nottingham, Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham, Sheffield, Cambridge, Bristol, London and their home city of Manchester.
