Deaf Havana have announced their fifth album ‘Rituals’ and shared their first single from the album, ‘Sinner’, which you can listen to below.
The album - due for release 10th August - was written and recorded less than six months ago, as a challenge taken up by vocalist James Veck-Gilodi and album co-producer Phil Gornell to subvert the band’s writing process and turn the songs around in a relatively small space of time to make them more relevant to the band in the present.
Frontman James says of the album: “It feels quite self-indulgent. This is the first time I feel like I have made an album that is all for me, written purely for my own enjoyment. I understand that I might alienate some people who might not ‘get’ the album, but I am so fortunate that the band are behind me all the way. Everyone is super excited to get out on the road and play all these songs live.”
