The four-piece will release their second album this August.

Dry The River have announced details of their second album.

The first track to be unveiled from the album, which was recorded with producers Charlie Hugall, Paul Savage and Peter Miles, is ‘Gethesemane’, which was given its premiere on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier this evening.

The record features arrangements from Valgeir Sigurðsson, a composer and producer best known for his work with fellow icelandic musicians Björk and Sigur Rós - though has also worked alongside Damon Albarn, Brian Eno and Feist among others.

‘Roman Candle’ also features the guest vocal talents of ex-Delgado Emma Pollock.

The track listing is:

Alarms in the Heart

Everlasting Light
Hope Diamond
Husk (‘secret’ song)

Back in February the band - who also said goodbye to violinist Will Harvey - performed at the DIY and Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING date at Glasgow’s O2 ABC2. Ahead of the show, vocalist Peter Liddle had a chat with DIY about the record. Watch below.
