Sea Power are set to round off their UK tour with a huge Manchester gig at the Albert Hall.

The tour comes after February’s release of latest album Everything Was Forever.

The 10-track Everything Was Forever features the single Folly and lead single Two Fingers, a song which signalled a new future for Sea Power as they dropped ‘British’ from their name.  Two Fingers immediately landed on the BBC6 Music A-List as they took on the subjects of mortality and defiance.

Follow up single Folly, by contrast, looked at procrastinators sleepwalking through life with eyes only on the short term.  As guitarist Noble explained, “Folly is in the tradition of singalong Sea Power apocalyptic anthems – everyone ambling down the road to a multitude of catastrophes. Party on! You might find yourself standing up on the South Downs, up on the fells or the dales, looking down at the world, a world where we seem to avoid the decisions and changes to stop the rot. It’s all folly, but in this case set to some pretty life-affirming music – good stuff underpinning the donut vibes and maybe making you think it’s not all over, not quite, not yet.”

Whilst Hamilton added, “I was thinking of things like greedy overlords playing fart games on the lawns of their great dominions, the enclosure of common lands,
bodies, minds, the fantastical gusto of doom and frivolity that feeds the world, me included. I was feeling all on edge, paranoid like the old vampire in Nosferatu when I got into this song.”

Everything Was Forever was released on 11 February ahead of a seven date UK tour opening in Southampton and taking in Birmingham, London, Bristol, Sheffield and Glasgow before their Manchester gig.
