New Indie Albums 2019 Release List

New indie albums 2019

2019 is going to be another exciting year for the indie music scene. With lots of new albums from bands such as Foals, Vampire Weekend and White Lies in the making, 2019 promises to be just as good as 2018. While some records already have a definite release date and title, others are in early production stages or have merely been announced.

Debut albums have been confirmed for Alice Merton (January 18th), Anteros (March 22nd), and George Ezra’s younger brother Ten Tonnes (April 5th). London quintet Ten Fé and Reading’s Sundara Karma have announced their sophomore albums. The 1975 will follow up the recently released A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships with a new album titled Notes On A Conditional Form. On February 11th, Two Door Cinema Club teased their fourth album with a colourful video clip.

Vampire Weekend and Foals have both revealed that they will be releasing new albums in 2019. Foals have recently signed a publishing deal with Transgressive and have revealed they will release two albums in 2019, namely Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 and 2.

Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig wrote a lenghty instagram post in which he revealed that the band have indeed finished recording a new album titled Father Of The Bride and contains 18 songs. The first new songs, Harmony Hall and 2021 were released in Januar. Koenig further confirmed “tere will be three 2-song drops every month until the record is out”.

This list is regularly updated, so check back soon for new information. A list with indie albums 2018 can be found here.
