UK HEADLINE TOUR / NOVEMBER

 

 

 

PALE WAVES have revealed the self-shot video for their recent single, REASONS TO LIVE, taken from

their highly anticipated third album, UNWANTED, released on 12 August via Dirty Hit. The video is a look into the joyful, chaotic euphoria of touring as the monochrome film finds the band making the most of their time stuck in traffic.

 

Alongside the video, the band have also announced a nationwide US headline tour throughout September and into October, taking in fifteen cities including Washington, New York, Kansas City, Denver, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

 

 

In addition to a packed summer of UK festival appearances, Pale Waves will celebrate the release of Unwanted with a run of UK instores, including a signing and performance at the iconic Banquet Records in Kingston. The intimate shows will offer an appetite-whetting glimpse into the Unwanted live experience, which can be seen across the UK in November as the band embark on their biggest headline tour to date. Beginning with a hometown date at Manchester Albert Hall, the tour will culminate with a show at London O2 Brixton Academy. Tickets available now from: https://palewaves.co.uk/live/

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Zakk Cervini (Blink 182, Modern Baseball, Halsey) Unwanted is 13 tracks of classic pop punk with an edge. Think Sum-41 by way of Veruca Salt; all the crunchy guitars and rhythmic drive of 2000s pop punk with the rage of a 90s rock band. It is a record that reaches out into the passionate community of misfits and LGBTQI+ fans around the band, tapping into darker emotions than ever before whilst also striking a fresh tone of defiance.

 

At the time of writing the album, Baron-Gracie was listening to a lot of Garbage, Paramore, Metric, Sky Ferreira, and Blondie – artists that fed into her desire to pull Pale Waves out of the indie and synth-pop world they started out in, towards a harder, more alternative sound. “I didn’t want any of those jangly, picky, high up on the fretboard guitars,” she says. “I wanted heavy distortion and chaos and power. So Unwanted had to be honest, provocative, and loud. Not only thematically but in the music as well.”
