Lifted from their upcoming album, ‘North East Coastal Town’.

Ahead of the release of their third album ‘North East Coastal Town’ on 10th June, LIFE are unveiling their latest single ‘Almost Home’.

“Almost Home barks, jolts, jerks and spits with the theme of pining to be home and thus chimes with North East Coastal Town’s over-riding sense of belonging. ‘Taste the difference…feel significant…hold a lifeline, you’re almost home!’” Mez Green says. “Almost Home is a song that wrestles with ego and love, with love winning; Recipe, I ain’t a cult recipe.”

In addition the the new track, the band have also announced that they’ll be performing an exclusive livestream at The Moon Factory on 18th May. “On 18th May we will play a live set of unheard new music from our studio in Hull,” Mez says. “The Moon Factory, located off the banks of the river Humber, is where every note, lyric and sound were conceived when we began writing for our 3rd LP North East Coastal Town.”
