‘Where Wildness Grows’ follows 2015’s five star-rated debut ‘A Dream Outside’ and will come out on 9th March via Transgressive. Its second preview comes in the form of new single ‘Mallory’.
“The journey has been far from straight-forward up until now and in many ways we are an altogether different band than the one that wrote A Dream Outside,” vocalist Felix Bushe says in a press release
“Over the past two years we have given everything in order to create an album that would meet all our ambitions, fulfilling our vision of what Gengahr is now. It’s been gruelling at times, but like a caterpillar entering metamorphosis you know the moment of darkness will be outshone by the transformation. There were certainly times along the way when frustrations grew and it seemed as if our vision for the album would shatter entirely.
“We spent almost 3 months recording a version of the album that would eventually end up making us feel a little uncomfortable in our own skin. Having to reset, take stock and go at it again wasn’t easy, but we were confident in the songs we had. That is always the most important thing as an artist, above anything else. We are incredibly proud of the record we have made and beyond excited to release it into the world for others to enjoy. “
The band are set to head out on a European tour with Jungle next month.
