The Battles Of Winter announce new single + reveal video ‘Love’s White Thread’

The Battles Of Winter

The Battles Of Winter release new single and video Love’s White Thread, which is the first release from the forthcoming album ‘At Once With Tattered Sails’. A military drumbeat sits atop an almost Stereolab-like repetitive bass line before lead singer Alistair Gale’s deadpan vocal are layered in. Watch the video via YouTube below.

‘At Once With Tattered Sails’ is the follow up to ‘Standing At The Floodgates,’ the debut album released to critical acclaim in 2014. ‘At Once With Tattered Sails’ is a menacing, covert and underhand affair. From the harmonising feedback and resilient drums of the opening track, through to the epic album closer there is a dark underbelly where voices quiver and guitars squall.

‘At Once With Tattered Sails’ was recorded through 2015 at Hackney Road Studios with Steve Honest and will be released in August 2016.

More about The Battles Of Winter? Formed some time ago in London but now geographically divorced, this four piece play ‘dramatic’, ‘complex’ and ‘expansive’ post punk / indie rock which is both subtle and aggressive.

They have been mentioned in the same breathe as the likes of Wire, Echo and the Bunnymen and Interpol and have played as support to Neil Young and The National at Hyde Park.
