NewDad have announced their second EP, ‘Banshee’, coming on 9th February via Fair Youth Records.
Banshee is the band’s second EP, following their debut ‘Waves’ released in March. Featuring previous singles ‘Ladybird’ and ‘Say It’, it’s a fully-realised, richer record and marks a new high for this emerging band.
“This EP is definitely bigger, having more time in the studio definitely meant we got to experiment more and layer more into each track so there’s an overall bigger sound! The main themes of this EP are restlessness and anxiety, during lockdown that’s how myself and most people were feeling so that’s what inspired a lot of the writing.”
NewDad have confirmed more live dates for next year following the incredible success of their first UK tour. They’ll appear at SXSW and All Points East, alongside their biggest UK and Ireland tour so far. At All Points East they’re share a bill with Gorillaz, Self Esteem and Idles. Around SXSW the band will play their first solo US shows, heading to New York and LA. All dates are below:
