Boston Manor Announce New Album ‘Sundiver’

It's out on September 6th...

Boston Manor will release new album ‘Sundiver’ on September 6th.

The band are stirring back into life, with the Blackpool five-piece sealing off work on their latest album. In a note, Boston Manor say it took “two years of work and four years of planning…” to construct the LP, which finally lands this summer.

Out on September 6th, ‘Sundiver’ features 11 tracks, and steers the five-piece in some fresh directions. Singer Henry Cox comments:

We’ve essentially been working on this album and building up to it since the pandemic. We were obsessed with trying to make a record that felt like blistering sunshine, or that wavy/hazy horizon you get when the pavement is super hot, but we didn’t want it to sound “happy” or “major key”. ‘Sundiver’ is by far Boston Manor’s best and most ambitious record to date, and we couldn’t be happier with it, I really hope our fans love it as much as we do.

Released via SharpTone, Boston Manor will follow the release with a hectic UK tour. New single ‘HEAT ME UP’ leads the way, a song about feeling helplessly, totally infatuated.

Frontman Henry Cox once more…

‘Heat Me Up’ ended up being the first track we finished on the album. We’d gone down to Welwyn Garden City where we were going to record the album to write and do some pre-production. It was actually our day off, it was a blistering hot day and we had nothing to do, so we had a barbecue in the garden and wrote a song. Sometimes tunes take months to write but this just flew right out in an afternoon. It’s a song about being utterly obsessed with someone and being grateful for what you have.

Tune in now.
