Public Service Broadcasting have announced plans for new album 'Every Valley'.
The project recently signed to PIAS and confirmed plans to pen new material, the follow up to 2015's 'The Race For Space'.
New album 'Every Valley' is similarly conceptual, but instead of veering upwards to the heavens it plunges down into the depths.
The material was inspired by the traditions surrounding British coal mining, and grew to take on a life of its own.
J. Willgoose, Esq., explains: “I have no personal ties to mining, be it coal or otherwise, and I have no family links to the area, but something about the story drew me in. Perhaps the romanticism of the valleys and their geography attracted me to South Wales in particular. You can’t always explain these things, as I’ve learned. What’s certain in my mind is that this album isn’t just about mining, and isn’t just about Wales. It’s a story reflected in abandoned and neglected communities across the western world, and one which has led to the resurgence of a particularly malignant, cynical and calculating brand of politics”.

Public Service Broadcasting will play two shows at the Ebbw Vale Institute in South Wales on June 8th and 9th – tickets go on sale this Friday (March 24th).
'Every Valley' will be released on July 7th.
