Drenge announce new album 'Strange Creatures'

Despite only returning earlier this month to share their 'Autonomy' EP, Drenge have now announced their plans for a new studio album, set to arrive early next year.

The new full-length 'Strange Creatures' will be the band's first since their brilliant 2015 LP 'Undertow', includes the previously shared singles 'This Dance' and 'Autonomy', and is set to be released on the 22nd February via Infectious Records.

Speaking about the new record, the band said, “It comes after months of chiselling away, ripping themes and ideas apart, sewing them back together, stepping away and coming back with fresh ears.,” the band say of the record in the statement. ”Sometimes, a song appears fully formed and ready to go, and sometimes, a song just needs time to ferment. Fine tuning small details, nipping between songs, picking out small things and accentuating them until they take over or become something else entirely.

“The result is the most considered record we have ever made. It’s a nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it. Is that a school or a skyscraper on fire in the distance? Or maybe it’s just the ski village? You drive nearer, past roadside diners jammed with dancing teenagers, through Uncanny Valley, past the most unhygienic nightclub in the world. The stereo sounds like its going to fall apart at any moment. The car judders to a halt and all you can hear is the sound of the sea.”
