A press release on Grand Jury claims that: “Whether sneering or pleading, aggressive or impatient, the thirteen tracks of “Down In Heaven” are a continuation of the bands path and an eschewing of previous comparisons. It is a record all about feel: heartbreak, forgiveness, anger, jubilation, reinvention, growth.”

They have also announced a string of UK live shows:

15th April: Sheffield, England – Picture House Social Club
16th April: Glasgow, Scotland – Stereo
17th April: Manchester, England – Deaf Institute
19th April: London, England – Camden Barfly

‘Down In Heaven’ is released 13th May via Communion
