Hatcham Social have completed work on their new studio album - listen to preview track 'Lion With A Lazer Gun' now.
Hatcham Social are an odd, beguiling phenomenon. Perhaps that's due to geography: the band hail from New Cross, an area of London which has long housed a passionately devoted visual arts scene.
Given the space to do their own thing, the band have responded with some memorably odd but emotionally engrossing recordings. With three members working in Tim Burgess' backing band, Hatcham Social has taken something of a beat seat of late.
Well, now they're back. Heading into the studio, Hatcham Social will release their new studio album 'Cutting Up The Present Leaks Out The Future' in February through Tim Burgess' O Genesis imprint.
Before then, the band have unveiled new track 'Lion With A Lazer Gun'. Set to gain a standalone release on December 16th, it's a languid, subtle return from the South East London outfit.
Mature yet probing, sedate yet continually evolving, you can stream 'Lion With A Lazer Gun' first on Clash.
'Cutting Up The Present Leaks Out The Future' is set to be released on February 3rd. Hatcham Social have confirmed the following shows:
15 Manchester Soup Kitchen
16 Glasgow Nice N Sleazy
18 London The Lexington
19 Bristol The Louisiana
