NME Festival blog: Drenge announce third album ‘Strange Creatures’ and 2019 UK tour

The band will hit the road in support of the record next spring

Drenge have announced the release of their third album, ‘Strange Creatures’, and details of a 2019 UK headline tour.

The Derbyshire duo, comprised of brothers Eoin and Rory Loveless, released their latest record in the form of the ‘Autonomy’ EP earlier this month.

‘Strange Creatures’ was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, M.I.A., The Fall) and will be released on February 22, via Infectious Records. According to a press release, it was made “after months of chiselling away, ripping themes and ideas apart, and sewing them back together.”

The band added: “It’s a nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it. Is that a school or a skyscraper on fire in the distance? Or maybe it’s just the ski village?

“You drive nearer, past roadside diners jammed with dancing teenagers, through Uncanny Valley, past the most unhygienic nightclub in the world. The stereo sounds like it’s going to fall apart at any moment. The car judders to a halt and all you can hear is the sound of the sea.”

The tracklist for ‘Strange Creatures’ is as follows:

‘Bonfire Of The City Boys’
‘This Dance’
‘Teenage Love’
‘Strange Creatures’
‘Prom Night’
‘No Flesh Road’

‘Never See The Signs’
‘When I Look Into Your Eyes’

Now a four-piece for live shows, Drenge will return to the stage this week for a one-off Halloween show in Sheffield. They will then embark on a UK headline tour next year. Register for pre-sale access here.
