Bad Ele­phant Mu­sic con­firm they’re to re­lease

San­guine Hum’s Now We Have Power on Oc­to­ber 12.

The long-awaited fol­low-up to 2015’s dou­ble opus Now We

Have Light also in­cludes a guest ap­pear­ance from orig­i­nal drum­mer Paul Mal­lyon.

“I think it’s the best-sound­ing record we’ve made in terms of sonic depth and it has a lit­tle more of a nod to­wards the Can­ter­bury sound which we started with many years ago as An­tique Seek­ing Nuns,” says vo­cal­ist and gui­tarist Joff Winks. “We re­ally wanted to have Paul on this record be­cause he’d been with the band for such a long time but never ended up play­ing on Now We Have Light. We de­cided we’d have Paul come back and guest on it. It was a way of con­clud­ing the story and bring­ing him some clo­sure.”

The 50-minute record­ing picks up from where …Light’s fu­tur­is­tic tale left off with the tribu­la­tions of an in­ven­tor who ac­ci­den­tally cre­ates a worm­hole to an­other uni­verse. In this new world, his sud­den ar­rival is mis­in­ter­preted as he be­comes an ac­ci­den­tal Mes­siah and his­tory re­peats it­self.

“It’s the fi­nal chap­ter that we have planned for this se­quence al­though, for a long time, Matt [Baber, key­boards] and I have played around for an­other idea that might visit the space where these two worlds join so this might not be the last thing we ever do with the story!” says Winks.

San­guine Hum join North Sea Ra­dio Orches­tra, Doris Bren­del, Thumper­mon­key, Lord Of Worms and Frac­tal Mir­ror as an acous­tic duo at Chelthen­ham’s Ep­pyfest 7 on July 28.
