We Were Promised Jetpacks announce new album 'The More I Sleep The Less I Dream', share first track 'Hanging In'

It’s the band’s first release in four years!

Scottish four-piece We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced new album ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’, their first album in four years since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’. They’ve also shared the first track from the record ‘Hanging In’, which you can listen to below.

“The album is so much about us going back to our basics and relying on our instincts,” the band’s Mike says. “There’s a range of songs that span everything we do as a band, and we’re the connection between them. It feels like this album is us.”

After making their previous albums in England, Scotland and Iceland, the band headed to the U.S for the new record, recording over the course of five weeks at Minor Street in Philadelphia and Long Pond in New York’s Hudson Valley earlier this year.

We Were Promised Jetpacks will also be touring the US and Europe later this year. See the dates below.
