Boniface announces self-titled debut album

Following on from a string of brilliant singles including 'Ghosts' and 'Wake Me Back Up' already this year, Boniface is now capping off their 2019 with the announcement of their first studio album.

The self-titled debut full-length was recorded between Winnipeg and London alongside producer Neil Comber, is being previewed by the new single 'Keeping Up', and is expected to arrive on the 14th February via Transgressive Records.

Speaking about the new record, they said, “This summer, I finished my debut record. It is a collection of stories about coming of age in a small town. An intimate series of vignettes from my youth that only came to be through collaboration with a handful of the kindest, most talented people I’ve ever met. From the beginning, I have only been able to tell my stories because I was surrounded by people that connected with them and wanted to tell them with me. I’m so grateful it’s all finally materialised into something we can share, and in early 2020 it will be yours.”

Adding about the new cut 'Keeping Up, they explained, “In high school I met some friends that changed me forever. They all thought different, acted different than anyone I’d met, but everything about them seemed so right and so safe to me. I was a weird music nerd and they played music in basements and after a few nights getting wasted together there was a deep, platonic love between us. But love is complicated, and when you get close to people you start seeing the bad along with the good. You see the bad in yourself, the baggage you’re carrying and you realise everyone else has it too. You realise that no matter how hard you try, you’re going to make mistakes. 'Keeping Up' is about that realisation. The first deep connections you make. The beauty and the tragedy of it all”.
