A Blaze Of Feather have announced details of their self-titled, debut album release, A Blaze of Feather, through bandmate Ben Howard’s new independent label, Hell Up Records.
The follow-up to their recent EP1 is set for release on the 30th June, and will feature all brand new tracks!
Lead-singer Mickey Smith says about the record: “The songs that form this self-titled debut LP were sparked amongst the Winter storms that haunt the west coasts of Ireland and Cornwall. Touring and living on the road away from family can take their toll and it’s only after you return you really know the cost. Each one of us walks our own thread of sanity. For myself, the strange hope of fatherhood flickers amongst the shadows of grief and memories of loved ones lost. I count myself lucky to play in a band that offers sanctuary on many levels and shape shifts so instinctively together. It’s a rare understanding to share and something we don’t take for granted. This past year has spun by so fast we weren’t at all ready to match its pace, but we’ve rolled on as best we can. We have only just finished recording this record, most tracks were put down live and spontaneously. Now we are standing back and taking a look at the whole picture”
The record will also be swiftly followed by their first live shows, a mini-tour of the South West of England, in preparation for a Summer of festival appearances
