Tired Lion have premiered their first new music in two years with latest single ‘Waterbed’.
They’ve also shared an accompanying video, featuring intercut footage of frontwoman Sophie Hopes as a smoking nun with the band performing near a graveyeard. It’s directed by Rome – watch it below:
The West Australian rockers premiered the single on triple j last night (May 5), and the video on Youtube Live afterwards.
Per the band’s social media, they have been recording a second album at The Grove and Music Farm studios over the last six months. Tired Lion’s debut album ‘Dumb Days’ came out in 2017, and they haven’t released a single since 2018’s ‘With or Without’.
Their promotional campaign for the as-of-yet-untitled album has covertly ramped up of late however. Last week, Hopes shared a layered acoustic version of the title track from the band’s debut album. She also announced a competition where followers of the band on Spotify can win a 1 on 1 virtual guitar lesson with her.
Hopes also performed as part of the fifth edition of ISOL-AID festival on Instagram Live last month, playing alongside the likes of Missy Higgins, WAAX, Frankie Cosmos, Vera Blue, Hermitude and more.
