UK shoegaze legends Slowdive have announced the completion of their first new album in six years. Neil Halstead, the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, confirmed the news during a recent appearance on the podcast SixPack, which was subsequently shared on their official Instagram page.
Halstead mentioned that he contributed “a lot” of demos for the album, and the sound will feature a blend of electronic and indie rock influences. “We end up meeting in a place where everyone is happy,” he said.
Slowdive’s self-titled fourth album was released in 2017, marking their first release in 22 years since reuniting in 2014. The band is set to perform a series of shows in Australia later this month, and will also be appearing at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. Fans can purchase tickets for their upcoming gigs via the band’s website.
