Protomartyr announce new album ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’

Check out lead single ‘Make Way’.

Protomartyr have announced that their new album ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’ will be out on 2nd June via Domino, describing the record as 12 songs about “getting on with life”. Sharing new single ‘Make Way’ alongside the news, it comes accompanied by a video directed by Trevor Naud, who says, “There’s a deliberate through-line between the videos for ‘Make Way’ and 2020’s ‘Worm In Heaven’. The two songs feel partnered with each other. So I wanted the videos to feel like they exist in the same world. There are layers of experiments happening—all within a closed environment. We don’t know what’s happened to the world outside, but there’s an undertone that things maybe aren’t quite right.” Check out ‘Make Way’ below. ‘Formal Growth In The Desert’ Tracklisting: 1.
