The long-awaited debut album from The K’s is set for release this year, and the Earlestown band released the latest single earlier this week.
The highly anticipated debut album, I Wonder If The World Knows, will land on 22nd March.
No Place Like Home is the follow-up to Heart On My Sleeve, the first single from the new album, and the latest instalment sees the band teaming up with acclaimed producer, Gareth Nuttall (Lottery Winners, Frank Turner).
Frontman, Jamie Boyle, commented: “No Place Like Home is a story of the weekly occurrence of anxiety and panic attacks every Sunday. Starting with an initial feeling of confusion as to why your body feels like it’s fighting to survive closely followed by the panic that sets in as you retrace your steps through the night before.
“The dreaded “beer fear” and financial hardship that makes you promise you’ll never do it again – only to do the exact same the weekend after. The song constantly battles to try and find balance between the temporary tranquillity that comes with being intoxicated and the harsh reality of the longer term effects it has on both physical and mental health.”
Accompanying the release is the official video, available to watch HERE.
Directed by Geoff Owens, the video features a teenager putting on a cassette of the band, dancing around the streets and using the music as a form of escapism, interspersed with scenes of the band performing the track.
The album can be pre-ordered here and is available on Vinyl, Cassette, CD and all digital platforms.
Speaking about the upcoming release, Jamie adds: “The long wait is nearly over, and we are finally on the brink of releasing our debut album. I Wonder If The World Knows is a written journey throughout the last couple of years of our lives throughout the ups, the downs and everything in between. We’ve put our heart and soul into making the perfect record and we can’t wait for you to hear it.”
The K’s’ debut album will be released via LAB Records on March 22nd 2024.
