BOB VYLAN, have today released their new, critically acclaimed and independently released album ‘Humble As The Sun’ via Ghost Theatre.  Alongside that is the powerful and confronting single ‘Reign’, which shows their ever-evolving sound.

“Reign felt like a perfect focus track to release on the day of the album as it is powerful, self affirming and pulls no punches when speaking of one’s own value as well as discussing social issues and even touching on some of the issues we’ve found in the music industry. For the video we wanted to emphasise the Moor aspect of the song, so we wanted to make it regal and powerful with vivid colours. But the second half takes a turn, and becomes powerful in another way.” – BOB VYLAN

‘Humble as the Sun’, continues with much of the rage and urgency that they have come to be known and loved for, but this latest project shows that they are now stronger and wiser, bolstered by the wins and learnings that they have fought hard for along the way. The resulting record aims to leave the listener feeling power alongside their anger, and brings a fresh and compelling blend of punk, rock, grime and rap together in an experimental way.

“Humble As The Sun is a positive self affirming album created after conversations and meditations with and in the Sun and nature. We want this album to uplift, inspire and bring positivity to peoples lives while continuing to highlight issues many of us are facing in this political and economic crisis.” – BOB VYLAN

Following on from the MOBO award-winning and chart-topping album, ‘Bob Vylan Presents the Price of Life’, the message woven throughout ‘Humble as the Sun’ remains dark in places but is high-energy, defiant and unapologetic in its critique of a broken social and political system that so many have fallen victim to, but feel powerless against.

With just one vocalist (Bobby) and one drummer (Bobbie) they have created a unique and ever evolving sound, one that crosses styles and genres, doing away with the traditional and embracing new and uncharted sonic dimensions. They incorporate these styles within their music in an attempt to bridge and blend genres and subcultures together. It is this very unique style and sound that has found them embraced by rock, rap, punk, dance and alternative crowds alike.

Their independent nature has seen them start their own record label (Ghost Theatre), to release their music free from the restraints of major label politics. This route saw the band reach number 18 on the UK album charts, 4 in the physical charts and number 3 on the independent charts, with their 2022 album ‘Bob Vylan Presents The Price Of Life’. The first time in history that an album entirely self-produced, recorded, mixed and released on a band’s own label has reached the top 20. The album also went on to win the Kerrang! ‘Best Album’ award for 2022, and helped the band win their first MOBO award in the new ‘Alternative’ category.
