Lanterns On The Lake are set to release their second album 'Until The Colours Run' through Bella Union on September 9th.
It's impossible for any artist to remain immune from the circumstances which surround them. North East collective Lanterns On The Lake are no exception, with their baroque arrangements being very much a product of their times.
New album 'Until The Colours Run' is set to be released on September 9th, and boasts a few moments which are if not political per se then definitely plugged in to their social surroundings.
Lead single 'Another Tale From Another English Town' is a case in point. "I think the way things are going in this country, it’s going to be hard for people not to write music that carries some of that weight," explains singer Hazel Wilde. "While we were making the record, a lot of our friends were losing their jobs and there were some drastic cuts being made, especially in our part of the world."
A beautifully wrought piece of songwriting, 'Another Tale From Another English Town' comes backed with a strikingly shot video courtesy of James Alexander Grieves.
'Until The Colours Run' will be released on September 9th via Bella Union. Lanterns On The Lake have confirmed the following tour dates:
18 Southampton The Joiners
19 London Scala
20 Leicester The Cookie Jar
21 Gateshead The Sage
