Following their stellar appearance on the main stage at Download Festival, Boston Manor have revealed details of their sophomore album! Welcome To The Neighbourhood is set for release through Pure Noise Records on September 7!

Speaking of the record, frontman Henry Cox says;  “My generation financially and culturally barren. We can’t afford to buy a house, we’re very much paying the price for our parents’ generation’s mistakes, but at the same time too fucking lazy and distracted and comfortable to do anything about it.” 

He adds; “I’m just trying to draw attention to a few issues. The things that are important to my generation are just so trivial in my eyes, but who am I to say? I can’t really offer any immediate solutions, but I can try to throw a bucket of cold water on some of my peers, to just get them to feel more and think more and not be so apathetic.”

The first single from the record is titled Halo and almost didn’t even make the record as Henry explains; ’Halo’ almost got scrapped & didn’t make the album. It was a totally different song, much slower and moodier. About a month before we went into the studio we reworked it entirely & it morphed into this current incarnation. It’s a song about feeling trapped; being in a vicious cycle & not knowing if there’ll ever be a way out.”
