Stereophonics will release new album Scream Above the Sounds on 3rd November through Parlophone Records.
Their tenth studio album arrives 20 years on from their debut Word Gets Around. It’s the follow-up to 2015’s number one album Keep the Village Alive, which was their sixth number one album to date.
The first single from the album is All in One Night, a song that embraces the band’s penchant for melancholy. It was influenced by the Sebastian Schipper film Victoria.
Talking about the songwriting process for the record Jones explains that he wanted to write “big, anthemic songs that are rallying against those anxious feelings that have flooded through cities. Every song offers a sense of release,” he says. “Even when there’s nostalgia, fear or anxiety, they’re still all offering hope and room to manoeuvre.”
Stereophonics consists of founding members Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar) and Richard Jones (bass) along with Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums). Long-term keyboardist Tony Kirkham joins the band for live shows.
The band will headline Kendal Calling on July 28th, Y Not Festival on July 29th, Victorious Festival on August 26th ahead of their set at Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park on September 10th.
