The band were set to release ‘A Celebration Of Endings’ on May 15, but last month they announced the record had been pushed back to August 14 due to the continued coronavirus crisis.
“With all of the turmoil and anxiety that the coronavirus situation is causing everyone’s lives, we decided that it would have felt wrong to have continued with our original release plan,” the band said when announcing the delay of their ninth album.
Speaking to NME about the new album earlier this year, Neil said the new record “represents us as a band and society as a whole.”
“We need to learn from the good, the bad and the ugly. We can make a better world for everyone. That sounds so fucking drippy, but it’s within our power. There are good people in the world.”
So far, the band have shared singles ‘Instant History’ and ‘End Of’ from ‘A Celebration Of Endings’.
