Lanterns on the Lake return!

Following the success of their critically-acclaimed debut ‘Gracious Tide, Take Me Home’ for Bella Union in 2011, Lanterns On The Lake return with a new single from their forthcoming second album, due for release late Summer. Another Tale From Another English Town is the Newcastle band’s most strikingly beautiful statement yet, their trademark dream-folk swoon delivered in more intensely concentrated form.

The equally beautiful video by director James Alexander Grieves mirrors the song’s elegy for the inevitable end of youthful innocence, and the hard times ahead. “I think the way things are going in this country, it’s going to be hard for people not to write music that carries some of that weight,” says singer / lyricist Hazel Wilde. “While we were making the record a lot of our friends were losing their jobs and there were some drastic cuts being made, especially in our part of the world”.

Lanterns On The Lake will be embarking on a short UK tour in June, including a London Scala performance:

Tuesday 18 June – SOUTHAMPTON – The Joiners (£8)
Wednesday 19 June – LONDON – Scala (£12.50)
Thursday 20 June – LEICESTER – The Cookie Jar (£8)
Friday 21 June – GATESHEAD –  The Sage Gateshead (£12.50)
