Minor Victories unveil ‘Give Up The Ghost’ from forthcoming LP

‘Orchestral Variations’ is released in January.

With ‘Orchestral Variations’ out in early 2017 - an instrumental reworking of this year’s self-titled album set for release on 27th January - Minor Victories have shared another number from the record, ‘Give Up The Ghost’.

It follows from ‘Cogs’ being shared on announcement.

Speaking of the project, the band’s Justin Lockey says: “When we were putting together the Minor Victories album, a lot of the music came about through string arrangements, motifs, melodies, countermelodies and other such noodlings I was messing about with. This record kind of takes it back to that initial point, and re-imagines the whole record from that standpoint - the bare bones, the hint at a vocal melody, not relying on any backbeat - but stripping the songs back to the base elements and then piece-by-piece making an entirely new record.”
