ALBUM NEWS: Dry The River announce new record 'Alarms in the Heart'

I haven't posted in what seems like an age, because I've been spending my time revising (or sitting and thinking that I should be revising) for my A2 exams. I finished school for good nearly 2 weeks ago and now seems like a good time to try and get back into posting here more regularly.

What better way to return but with the excellent news that Dry The River last week finally announced news of their new record, Alarms In The Heart which is to be released on 25th August.

The album is available to pre-order in a number of packages, more details of which can be found here. Furthermore, the release of the album will be supported by a tour in October, dates here.

I saw the band on a fairly small tour in June 2013, at the Portland Arms in Cambridge, when they were trying out new material - both the gig and the new tunes were excellent. Not only technically brilliant, the band are highly energetic in their performances - which  came across well even in such an intimate venue. I wholeheartedly recommend that you go and see them - I shall hopefully be at the Oxford show if I end up going to Oxford Brookes uni in September as I hope to!

The news of the record release date was also supported by a new video for the track Gethsemane, taken from the record, one of the tracks which they played at the show last year (video). Have a listen and be sure to pre-order/book tickets etc, hope you like the track!
