After a decade in the music business, Lower Than Atlantis have released their fifth studio album Safe In Sound, the follow up to 2014’s self-titled release.
In support of the new album Lower Than Atlantis will be performing an eight date UK tour including a gig at Manchester Academy.
The four-piece released Safe In Sound on 3 February via Easy Life Records / Red Essential, preceded by the single Had Enough, which was named Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on her Radio 1 Show.
Speaking about making the new album Safe in Sound and following up on the career-high of their 2014 self-titled album, Mike Duce commented, “Everything we achieved with the self titled completely surpassed our expectations and now it’s time to make an album that can really take us to the next level…. We’ve spent a lot more time refining our sound as well as trying some new techniques, Ben has engineered a lot of the record and Eddy has designed the aesthetic so this project is definitely very close to our hearts. We just wanted ‘Safe In Sound’ to be a true representation of where this band is nearly ten years on! This album tackles concepts such as depression, rejection, being in love and monetary worries to name a few so there’s definitely something in there that most people can relate to. We’re certain that this album is the best work from this band and can’t wait for everyone to hear it! The album title is born from the idea of being “safe and sound” but being safe within music.”
The band recently played in Europe with You Me At Six and launch their biggest tour to date at Norwich’s UEA before coming to Manchester just a couple of days later.
Speaking about the upcoming live dates Duce added, “We’re headlining the biggest shows we’ve ever played so we’ve written what we think is a record big enough to be played in those venues.”
Lower Than Atlantis play at Manchester Academy on 11 March 2017.
