The band recently discussed experimenting with their signature sound for the upcoming LP, which will include the use of synths, in an interview with NME.

Drummer Gary Powell said: “I would have been really, really pissed off if we’d come back with a new album full of old stuff… The last thing I wanted us to do was sound like we were back in 2004”.

In celebration of the album’s release, the group are hosting a “week of shenanigans” at famed, small Camden venue Dublin Castle. The London events include a photo exhibition, documentary screening, album playback, pub quiz and other “surprises”, taking place from August 31 to the album’s release date on September 4.
