English alt rockers Deaf Havana have announced the release date for their next album in a less than conventional way. All These Countless Nights is set to be released on the 27th of January next year, following the release of new single Sing earlier this month. You can watch the video for that track here:
The band’s announcement was made whilst they played the above single during their set at Reading Festival last weekend. During the performance, an artist spray painted the album title and release date onto the band’s stage backdrop. If you’re in the UK and want to watch their full performance, you can check it out on the BBC iPlayer here.
Rather than pulling a Beyoncé and dropping a new album with no lead-up, announcement or publicity, or announcing a record the old fashioned way, I appreciate that Deaf Havana have shaken things up and done things a little differently. Their new track sounds a little different too: the chorus is big and punchy, and it sounds like they’re stepping away from their slightly poppier sounding previous record.
