We Were Promised Jetpacks
announce signing to Big Scary Monsters and extensive autumn / winter tour throughout UK / Europe / USA



Scottish rock mainstays We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced their signing to revered boutique record label Big Scary Monsters, alongside an enormous tour in the UK, Europe and US throughout September, October and November (full list of dates below). Tickets go on sale on Friday 13th July via https://www.wewerepromisedjetpacks.com/.

First emerging a group of 20-year-olds in 2009, with their exciting debut These Four Walls, the four members went on to release two further widely lauded albums throughout their ‘20s, 2011’s In the Pit of the Stomach and 2014’s Unravelling. Each band member recently turned 30 and felt like vastly different people to the four 20-year-olds that they were when they first started releasing music.

Having spent ten years almost consistently writing and touring, it was time to decamp home to Scotland and take a breath. They reverted back to their original four members and dealt with several behind the scenes changes. They celebrated a few marriages and tried to remember who they were when not on the road. Now the acclaimed group have returned with a teaser video, freshly signed to Big Scary Monsters and ready to embark on their first huge headline tour in a number of years.

We Were Promised Jetpacks
share brand new single Hanging In and announce first album in four years The More I Sleep the Less I Dream

Out via Big Scary Monsters on 14th September



Scottish rock mainstays We Were Promised Jetpacks have shared emotionally wrought new single ‘Hanging In’ via Brooklyn Vegan and announced a brand new album, their first in four years, to be released on 14th September via Big Scary Monsters. The band will also embark upon an enormous tour in the UK, EU and US throughout September, October and November. The More I Sleep The Less I Dream marks a new chapter in We Were Promised Jetpacks’ career. It’s about going back to the heart of who they are, a high school band that never stopped. It’s about four people who have grown up together, making a conscious choice to keep writing music and seeing where that takes them.

“The album is so much about us going back to our basics and relying on our instincts.” Mike says. “There’s a range of songs that span everything we do as a band, and we’re the connection between them. It feels like this album is us.”

The musicians connected with producer Jonathan Low (The National, Sufjan Stevens, Kurt Vile, The War on Drugs) and were inspired by his approach to their vision and his grounded style. After making their prior albums in England, Scotland and Iceland, it felt like a good opportunity to try crafting songs in the U.S. The album was recorded over the course of five weeks at Minor Street in Philadelphia and Long Pond in New York’s Hudson Valley in early 2018.

First emerging a group of 20-year-olds in 2009, with their exciting debut These Four Walls, the four members went on to release two further widely lauded albums throughout their ‘20s, 2011’s In the Pit of the Stomachand 2014’s Unravelling. Each band member turned 30 during the making of new album The More I Sleep, The Less I Dream, and felt like vastly different people to the four 20-year-olds that they were when they first started releasing music. Having spent ten years almost consistently writing and touring, it was time to decamp home to Scotland and take a breath. They reverted back to their original four members and dealt with several behind the scenes changes. They celebrated a few marriages and tried to remember who they were when not on the road. A decision was made. No more touring until a new album had been written.

Schöner Song, freue mich sehr auf's neue Album. Fand zum letzten bislang leider keinen richtigen Zugang, aber ich liebe die ersten beiden und wie gesagt, der neue Song gefällt mir auch wieder extrem gut. Gerade dieses Finale...
Vorfreude.

Ja, lässt offen! Nach dem tollen Debut wurde es ja ansonsten deutlich schwächer. Und für kleines Geld auf Tour; live machen die schon Spaß!

We Were Promised Jetpacks share powerful new track + video Repeating Patterns

First album in four years, The More I Sleep the Less I Dream, out via Big Scary Monsters on 14th September

ALBUM PRE-ORDER: http://tinyurl.com/WWPJsleep

Scottish rock bastions We Were Promised Jetpacks have today shared energetic new single and accompanying video for Repeating Patterns via DIY Magazine today – a powerful dose of angular indie rock.

The revered group recently teased news of a brand-new album, their first in four years, to be released on 14th September via their new label Big Scary Monsters and are also due to embark upon an enormous tour in the UK, EU and US throughout September, October and November (dates below).

Speaking of the new track, the band say: "Repeating Patterns is one of the first songs we wrote for this album. It’s been getting a great reception at our shows and has become a really important song for us. Our goal when recording was to not tame it and keep it as raw and raucous as it is live.

“We only first saw the video a few days ago and we absolutely love it. Thanks to Mathew Marchlewski, Adam Keene, Poppy Garcia & Ashley Spencer for making such a perfect video. We hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as we enjoy playing it.”

Ich bin ja durchaus der Meinung das die Band von Album zu Album besser geworden ist. Die neuen Tracks sind in Ordnung, lassen mich aber auch nicht in Euphorie verfallen. Leider

Also "Hanging In" ist für mich mittlerweile schon bandinterne Top5. "Repeating Patterns" macht auch Spaß, ich bin immer noch sehr zuversichtlich was das neue Album angeht.

Bin angenehm überrascht. Unravelling bleibt für mich ein riesen Reinfall. TMISTLID hat aber viele gute Momenten, die an die ersten beiden Alben erinnern. Unravelling damals ein, zwei Wochen gehört, seitdem nie wieder. Bin mir sicher, mit TMISTLID wird das anders sein.

Bin ich der einzige der die Unravelling am stärksten empfindet und das Debut am schwächsten ? Die neue hab ich noch nicht gehört - aber ich bin sehr gespannt ob sie ihren Aufwärtstrend fortsetzten - die singles klingen zumindest eher nicht danach.

Gewohnt hohe Qualität, Tracks 1,3+4 schon mal fantastisch und gegen Ende wirds mit "Repeating Patterns" und dem Titeltrack nochmal richtig gut. Höre bei denen eher Konstanz als eine Entwicklung, aus dem Material der vier Alben könnte man eine gute 9 machen, als Einzelalben zumeist 7-8, die Neue aber zunächst auf 8er Kurs.
Hoffe, dass ich sie im Herbst nochmal live erleben kann, das letzte Konzert 2016 ist mir noch sehr gut in Erinnerung.

Album gefällt...
Ist auf jeden fall 8/10 anstatt 7/10.
Kein eiziger ausfall auf dem Album, hat man auch nicht heutzutage.

Es sind schon wieder einige sehr gute Songs dabei, aber ich kann die 7/10 nachvollziehen. So eine richtige Albumatmoshäre entwickelt sich nicht und manche Songs wissen auch nicht so ganz was sie eigentlich sein wollen (zB "Someone Else's Problem" oder "Make It Easier").
Highlights bis hierhin: "Hanging In", "Not Wanted", "Repeating Patterns2 und "The More I Sleep, The Less I Dream".

Edit: "When I Know More" statt "Make It Easier", letzterer ist cool.

Dieses Album und auch das Vennart Album schlagen bei mir in die gleiche Kerbe: Man erahnt welches Potential sich in den Alben verbirgt, aber ganz überschlagen will der Funke noch nicht.
