Dry The River Announce New Album ‘Alarms In The Heart’

Check out preview track 'Gethsemane'

It's time to shake things up. Now on their fresh home of Transgressive, Dry The River recently signalled their intention to release album no. 2.

Last night (June 16th) Zane Lowe was given the first play of brand new track 'Gethsemane'. A rousing return, a video for the track was shot earlier this year in South London's stunning Rivoli Ballroom.

Check it out now.

Now full details of the band's second album have been outlined. 'Alarms In The Heart' will be released through Transgressive on August 25th, with Charlie Hugall (Florence and The Machine, Ed Sheeran), Paul Savage (Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand) and Peter Miles (We Are The Ocean, Futures, The King Blues) taking care of production.

Valgeir Sigurðsson (Sigur Rós, Björk) worked with the band on the lavish string arrangements, with the material set to be a mature step beyond their debut.
