TUNE The Altered Hours - Over The Void
Irish band The Altered Hours have announced details of a new EP 'On My Tongue', set for release 09 March 2018 on Art for Blind/Penske Recordings.
Following the release of first single 'Open Wide' last year, the band have now shared the second track taken from their upcoming EP. 'Over The Void' is a flash of urgency spun with wiry guitars and shotgun drum rolls. Trashy and fast paced with a sweet submerged melody that builds with proximity and zeal with repeated questioning 'What did you say to me?'.
Frustration palpable in the face of mystery. A conversation started but not continued. The blind faith of the pilgrim who keeps seeking but does not know why, convinced nonetheless and set alight by the unknowable.
After a year’s worth of touring in support of their debut album 'In Heat Not Sorry', the band headed for Dublin’s Bow Lane Studios, where over the course of three days they produced a fast-paced and grittier recording to their debut. Clocking in at just 15 minutes, On My Tongue is a window into the rock and roll heart of the group; a side they plan on delving into even deeper with their second album.
The band have also announced a string of dates in Europe and the UK starting in March, with more to be added soon.
