Danish indie icons Mew are back! They’ve revealed that ‘Visuals’, the follow up to 2015’s ‘+-’ will be out on 28th April via Play It Again Sam.
Written on the road during the ‘+-’ tour and self-recorded in Copenhagen, the band have also designed the album’s visuals (which might explain why the album is indeed called ‘Visuals’). Take a look at the tracklisting:
01. Nothingness and No Regrets
02. The Wake of Your Life
03. Candy Pieces All Smeared Out
04. In a Better Place
05. Ay Ay Ay
06. Learn Our Crystals
07. Twist Quest
11. Carry Me to Safety
The band have shared that final track ‘Carry Me To Safety’, a typically atmospheric number that slowly develops from being a downbeat, string-laden meditation into a full on beast complete with soaring guitar solos and more than a few choir-like harmonies. It’s basically set to be a euphoric conclusion to the album.
They’re are also heading off on a big ol’ European tour in May to support the album, playing a new dates on the continent before heading to Bristol, Manchester and London. They round off their run at Germany’s Immergut Festival.
