A U.S. tour will commence this spring (see below).
Penned by multi-talented frontman Jack Steadman - who wrote the songs while travelling through India, Turkey, Europe and Tokyo, leaving it audibly awash with references from each of these cultures - he intended it from the outset to tell a story from the first track through to its finale.
He explains, "I think there is a romantic side to it, although I always try to leave the meaning side of a song and theme wide open."
The new album looks to break exciting new ground yet again for the band, effortlessly diversifying and innovating at an astonishing rate with ethereal loops, offbeat rhythms, shimmering keys, Dutch techno blips, soaring strings and even Bollywood movie samples - it is without question a defining record for a band who remain in their early 20s.
Jack also self-produced the album which was recorded over 18 months in the band's own studio. There are familiar backing vocals by long-time collaborator Lucy Rose and newcomer Rae Morris. Jack adds: "The last few years have been spent trying to move towards 'our sound', the fact that we have produced the album ourselves has helped a lot!"
