We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced their third album, ‘Unravelling’, due out in the autumn via FatCat Records. Following up In the Pit of the Stomach, it will be their first new long-player in three years.
The album’s lead track ‘Safety In Numbers’ can now be heard – the first new recording to feature newly-added fifth member, multi-instrumentalist Stuart McGachan – who can add keys, piano and guitar to the band, who have been a four-piece since their formation 10 years ago.
As well as headlining the Electric Fields festival on August 30th, the band have also announced an UK & Ireland tour tying in with the release:
Sep 11 Cyprus Avenue, Cork
Sep 12 Limelight 2, Belfast
Sep 13 Nerve Centre, Londonderry
Sep 14 Whelan’s, Dublin
Sep 17, The Garage, Aberdeen
Sep 18 Non-Zero’s, Dundee
Sep 19 The Caves, Edinburgh
Sep 20 Deaf Institute, Manchester
Sep 21 Bermuda Triangle, Brighton
Oct 8 The Lexington, London
The album was recorded at Chem19 Studios with Paul Savage. Adam Thompson said: “It’s the first time we’ve ever been present to mix the album with the same person who has recorded it, which has been an enjoyable and much more relaxing experience for us.”
