The Ninth Wave share new track ‘Imitation’, announce huge UK headline tour

The new song comes from their upcoming record ‘Infancy Pt. II’.

Having released ‘Infancy Pt. I’ back in April, The Ninth Wave are giving us a little taste of what’s to come in November’s ‘Pt. II’. Sharing new cut ‘Imitation’ today, it’s another huge melodic banger from the Glasgow group.

“’Imitation’ is what happens when I forget about my lonely disposition and get too caught up in everyone else’s lives,” Co-lead vocalist Haydn says. “It’s about how easy it is to become something you hate and we hate simple songs, so we made this song really simple and straightforward. We recorded it in the summer of 2018 with Dan Austin and Phil Parsons. This song was the quickest one of all of the 12 songs we recorded to track, as we did the backbone of it live to capture the feeling we felt when we played it live in the months prior to the ‘Infancy’ sessions.”

With ‘Infancy Pt. II’ set for release on 15th November, they’ll be celebrating with their biggest headline tour to date! Check out the dates below:
