We’re delighted to be working with Weyes Blood again – this time, at YES.

Weyes Blood (pronounced wizebluhd) will release Titanic Rising, her fourth album and Sub Pop records debut, worldwide on CD/LP/DL/CS on 5 April 2019. The album features the lead single Everyday, and the previously released Andromeda, along with highlights Movies, Wild Time and Something to Believe. The cover for Titanic Rising was shot in a bedroom submerged fully underwater (zero CGI).

The new single, Everyday, chronicles the chaos of modern love and dating – short attention spans, restlessness, and the continuous crusade (and carnage) to find some kind of all-encompassing soul mate. Watch official video, in all its bloody terror, directed by Weyes Blood.

Titanic Rising, written and recorded during the first half of 2018, is the culmination of three albums and many years of touring: stronger chops and ballsier decisions. It’s an achievement in transcendent vocals and levitating arrangements, conversational lyrics and thoughtful commentary on the modern condition of our souls. Like the Kinks meet WWII (or is it Bob Seger meets Enya?), Titanic Rising manages to ride that line between classic songwriting and post-apocalyptic futurism.

Weyes Blood and her band have also scheduled an intergalactic headlining tour for the spring of 2019 in support of Titanic Rising, including this Manchester date at YES.

Tour support comes from Lonesome Leash. Lonesome Leash is the solo moniker of Los Angeles-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Walt McClements. Known for previous involvement in Dark Dark Dark, Hurray for the Riff Raff and Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship?, McClements, as Lonesome Leash, channels all of his musical experiences into a lean and gorgeously messy solo affair.

The show is a co-promotion with Now Wave.
