UK alternative rock band Deaf Havana have announced that their fifth studio album ‘Rituals’ will be coming later this summer, with the release date set for the 10th of August. The news was accompanied by the release of Sinner, the first single from the forthcoming record.
Deaf Havana’s last release was 2017’s ‘All Those Countless Nights’, but according to the band, this album has been turned around much faster than any of their previous efforts. The record took just six months from writing to release, a deliberate choice to keep the songs fresh and relatable to the band.
In an interview with DIY, frontman James explained that the album was more “self-indulgent” than anything he’d made before, and warned that he “might alienate some people who might not ‘get’ the album”. However, he reiterated that the band were “behind him all the way”, and that all of them were super excited to play the new tracks live.
You can pre-order the album from the band’s website here, as well as choose from several merch, vinyl and CD bundle options. You can also pre-order through iTunes, Amazon or Google Play. You can also catch the band at various festivals this summer, including Reading and Leeds Festival – tickets available here.
The newly released tracklist for ‘Rituals’ is as follows:
