Ahead of their debut album release in May, HIMALAYAS today released another furious anthem-in-waiting, Leave This Place. Recorded at Mwnci Studios in West Wales with Steff Pringle, the track was mixed by GRAMMY-Award winning producer, Dave Sardy (Royal Blood, Josh Homme, Rage Against The Machine). Led by guitarist Mike Griffiths’ soaring riff, the song once again showcases frontman Joe Williams’ snarling vocals. Leave This Place will no doubt be heard being shouted back to the band, at a raucous live show soon.

Joe has explained of the writing process, Leave This Place is a song about being stuck in a place that you never wanted to be. You try your best to get out but always find yourself right back where you started. This song was written towards the tail end of a lockdown, and I think it was a huge piece in the puzzle of our debut album. Even before I sent the demo to the rest of the band, I knew it would translate to everyone straight away. Once we started playing it together, we knew then that it had to make the album!”  

The Cardiff-based quartet have just been added to the In It Together festival line up! They will perform alongside Jake Bugg, Twin Atlantic, Dream State and more on Friday 26th May, at Old Park Farm in Wales.
