Public Service Broadcasting announce new EP ‘White Star Liner’

The new release - out next month - is being previewed by its title track.

Public Service Broadcasting released their new album ‘Every Valley’ last year, and ahead of a series of autumn UK shows, they’ve announced details of a new EP.

‘White Star Liner’ will come out on 26th October and is being previewed by its title track.

Where ‘Every Valley’ - another of the band’s deeply conceptual records - concerned coal mining in Wales, ‘White Star Liner’ focuses on ship building in Belfast, as J. Wilgoose, ESQ explains.

“I thought it was an interesting challenge to tell the story of the ship’s construction as part of Belfast’s proud industrial history, the spirit of optimism of the pre-war age that she represented, and then an abstract and, I hope, respectful depiction of both the sinking of the ship (represented by the repeated Morse code distress call, C - Q - D) and the discovery of the wreck in 1985.”

Listen to the title track and view the band’s upcoming UK dates below.
