It’s the latest offering from the trio’s upcoming sixth album, ‘As I Try Not To Fall Apart’ which arrives on February 18 – you can pre-order it here.
Speaking about the new song, the band’s Charles Cave said: “Dare I say it this is another tip-toe into a more progressive-rock realm.
“The song feels very much a nighttime drive to me, winding empty roads, foreign air creeping in through the window. It’s a song about being humbled by the mind’s ability to lift us up and bring us down.
“It’s grand, full of longing and bombast, but there is an uneasiness to it too. It never quite resolves. This is going to be HUGE when we play it live!”

The latest offering comes after previously released singles including the album’s title track, ‘I Don’t Want To Go To Mars‘ and ‘Am I Really Going To Die.’
