Gabriel Bruce has promised a new direction on his second album – just days after his debut ‘Love In Arms’ was released.
His first record was due out last October, but was pushed back due to issues with his label. Speaking to NME after a special launch gig at London’s Tipsy Bar, the former Loverman frontman talked about his plans for the future and suggested the new LP may be available sooner rather than later.
Bruce said: “This album has taken so long to get out. It’s been a long while coming, but it’s finally emerged. I wrote the songs two years ago. We’ve started recording the new record and hopefully that’s going to be out in six months time. I’m going to go to an independent or maybe release it myself – just as long as it gets out soon.”
Discussing a change in direction, Bruce described his new material as having “a more back-to-basics rock’n’roll sound”. He continued: “The world is ending – I’ve realised this. You look around you and you see all this beauty but it’s all going to be gone. No-one’s angry about that. But I am so the new album is going to reflect that anger about the demise of our beloved planet Earth.”
Fans will be able to hear new songs when Bruce plays at London’s new weekly indie club night Bloodshake, held at the Garage, where he will be joined by a new live band, including members of his previous band Loverman. The exact date of his performance is TBC.
At last night’s album launch show, Gabriel Bruce played:
‘Dark Light Shine Loud’
‘Honey Honey Honey’
‘Greedy Little Heart’
‘Car’s Not Leaving’
