Slow Pulp have revealed details of their new album and ‘Anti-debut’ Yard, which they will release on 29 September.  As well as the album they have also confirmed a string of UK tour dates including Manchester and Liverpool gigs.

The Manchester gig at YES is one of eight UK and Ireland dates they have announced.  The Liverpool date has been announced for Jimmy’s.

Yard features Slow Pulp’s new single Slugs.  The track is based around chords from a song guitarist and producer Henry Stoehr wrote for his sixth grade crush – one of the first songs he ever wrote.  The new track took not just sonic but also subject inspiration from the song.  “‘Slugs,’ put simply, is about falling in love in the summertime,” says vocalist and guitarist Emily Massey. “The song lives in that place where the newness and freshness of getting to know someone turns into a tinge of fear because you realize how much you have come to care about them. I tend to get so overtaken in feelings of uncertainty or impermanence when it comes to relationships. Probably due to having rocky foundations or complications in them in the past. But suddenly, for the first time, I found myself in something that felt safe, with healthy attachment and mutual admiration, and the inevitability of uncertainty became more easily accepted. I think it’s so sweet that the song found this full circle moment in the timelessness of different types of firsts in love.
