Listen to And So I Watch You From Afar’s new album ‘The Endless Shimmering’ in full

The post-rockers’ new one is officially due on Friday.

This Friday, Irish post-rockers And So I Watch You From Afar are due to release their new album ‘The Endless Shimmering’.

But good news – they’re streaming the whole LP early! The album, which features the already-unveiled tracks ‘A Slow Unfolding of Wings’, ‘Dying Giants’ and ‘Terrors of Pleasure’, is listenable in full through The Independent and it’s a full-throttle burst of blazing riffs and technical elements.

Speaking of the LP at the time of its announcement, bassist Jonathan Adger said: “We laid everything bare and put everything we had into the songs. And we hope people can feel that and use that without us having to be to overt in how we present it. The album was charged with a lot of what we were all going through as individuals, but we wanted to allow it to become people’s soundtrack to whatever they need in their life at this moment”.

As part of a massive tour of Europe from October, the band will be returning to the UK in November, when they’ll play in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Bristol before heading to Ireland to play in Dublin, County Mayo, Cork and Galway in December. Tickets are on sale now
