Manchester’s Everything Everything have unveiled ‘Distant Past’, the lead single from their new third album, ‘Get to Heaven’.
Their giddy, future-gazing new single leads the way for a follow-up to 2013’s ‘Arc’. Alongside birdsong, thrashing percussion and Jonathan Higgs’ flip-flopping wordplay, it includes robot voice samples and the lyric, “saw off all my stinking limbs / blood dripping down my sunken monkey chin.” Blimey.
‘Get to Heaven’ will be released on 15th June. The album was announced over the weekend via a series of images and quotes such as “A trail of destruction but at least it’s a trail.”
Before ‘Get To Heaven’ is released, the band will be performing at Parklife 2015 alongside Disclosure, Metronomy and Rudimental.
‘Distant Past’ gained its first play as a Hottest Record on Zane Lowe - watch a caveman-tastic video below.
Everything Everything have announced new UK dates - they’ll play London’s Oval Space on 9th April, Manchester’s Academy 2 on 10th April. Tickets are on sale now.
