Northeast Party House are an electro rock sextet from down under who probably have the greatest band name of all times. Fresh from a UK and EU tour including appearances at The Great Escape and Dot to Dot Festival, the band announce their sophomore album Dare will be released Friday 9th September 2016.
The album was self-produced by the band as well as mixed and mastered in-house by drummer Malcolm Besley. While the band were touring the UK and Europe, recording was split across Melbourne and London . The new record is the follow up to critically acclaimed debut 2014 album, Any Given Weekend, which included The Haunted and Sick Boy.
Northeast Party House’s unique blend of rock, pop, electronica and lead singer’s Zach Hamilton-Reeves soulful voice is not only reminiscent of acts such as (early) Bloc Party, Klaxons and Breton but also stands for their very own style.
The first taste from the record is the brand new single For You and showcases a mellower side of the band. For You probably is the band’s first ballad. Guitarist Mitch Ansell explains:
‘For You’ recalls a time two people shared together. Although this time has passed, there is hope that this will be experienced again. We wanted the music to feel reminiscent and compliment the story of this modern relationship yet still create something that will translate to a live audience
After playing show across the UK and Europe, Northeast Party House will return to stages across Australia to celebrate the release of their new record. Tour dates can be found below.
