Everything Everything return with new single, ‘Distant Past’

Watch the clip for the first track from ‘Get to Heaven’.

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.
