BOS­TON MANOR are back with news of a forth­com­ing record, as well as the LP’S first sin­gle, and tour dates! Here’s the low­down…

Kerrang! (UK) - - The Awards -

1 THE RECORD’S CALLED WELCOME TO THE NEIGH­BOUR­HOOD …and the fol­low-up to 2016’s Be Noth­ing. is a “sound­track to dis­en­fran­chise­ment set in a fic­tion­alised ver­sion of the band’s home­town” of Black­pool. The 12-track re­lease was pro­duced by Mike Sapone (Tak­ing Back Sun­day, May­day Pa­rade), and is due out on Sep­tem­ber 7 via Pure Noise Records. 2 IT HAS A DE­FI­ANTLY BLEAK MES­SAGE… “My gen­er­a­tion is fi­nan­cially and cul­tur­ally bar­ren,” ex­plains front­man Henry Cox. “We can’t af­ford to buy a house, we’re very much pay­ing the price for our par­ents’ gen­er­a­tion’s mis­takes, but at the same time too fuck­ing lazy and dis­tracted and com­fort­able to do any­thing about it.” Yikes. 3 …BUT THE HOPE IS TO HAVE A POS­I­TIVE IM­PACT The band aren’t happy with the way things are go­ing – but at the very least they can get peo­ple think­ing. “I can’t re­ally of­fer any im­me­di­ate so­lu­tions,” says Henry, “but I can try to throw a bucket of cold wa­ter on some of my peers, to just get them to feel more and think more and not be so ap­a­thetic.” 4 THERE’S SOME SE­RI­OUS GROWTH ON SHOW HERE… “Be­fore, we were scared to try stuff,” Henry adds of the quin­tet’s mu­si­cal evo­lu­tion be­tween their de­but 2013 EP Here/ Now, and, um, now. “Whereas on this record there were no lim­its. We wanted to push our­selves, in­stead of be­ing ter­ri­fied to dip just one lit­tle toe in the wrong di­rec­tion.” 5 A NEW SIN­GLE, HALO, HAS ALSO AR­RIVED “It’s a song about feeling trapped; be­ing in a vi­cious cycle and not know­ing if there’ll ever be a way out,” the front­man re­veals about Bos­ton Manor’s lat­est track – which also comes with a bril­liant, dark ac­com­pa­ny­ing video. Ace. 6 AND SOME TOUR DATES TO BOOT! The K! Tour 2017 alumni will be hit­ting the UK this Sep­tem­ber. Oh, and they’ll be sup­ported by Mi­crowave, Drug Church and Wallflower. Great line-up and new mu­sic? You do spoil us, Bos­ton Manor…
