In the past 12 months Delta Sleep have released their second album, Ghost City, plus a Record Store Day EP of rarities (featuring guest vocals from Tricot) and played over 100 shows, including two sold out headline tours of the US, a whole host of festivals and supported Mineral across Europe for their 20th anniversary dates. The touring ended on the last day of June, so of course they went straight to a studio on July 1st to secretly record a new EP.

“During our EU tour with Mineral in May we took a rare day off in Dortmund and booked into a rehearsal space. We had a couple of ideas we had been messing around with for a while so this day off gave us a chance to sit down, take them apart, put them back together and play with them again. Something clicked, so we booked ourselves in to record them asap”

Recorded at Middle Farm Studios in Dorset, the end result is Younger Years. A 6 track EP of typically brilliant indie math rock, it takes in every element fans around the world have come to love about Delta Sleep, with the gorgeous tones, impassioned vocals and beautiful, evolving structures. 

Going against the typical format of slowly drip-feeding information and music, Younger Years wasn’t just recorded quickly, no one was hanging around with it’s release either. “Having done long album campaigns we thought screw it this time around! Instead of teasing you for 6 months with singles, we thought “Let’s just treat everyone and pop the whole thing online”. Want some new music? Sick. Here’s one big chunk of sweetness for you all: a mini album of massive heaters.”

And the band aren’t done there. They kick off 2020 with a whole host of tour dates, playing their biggest shows to date in the UK, US, South America and Asia. “We can’t wait to get out and play to so many old and new friends all over the world. We’re already planning more dates on this never-ending world tour – If we haven’t been to your city yet, fear not, we’re coming soon!”

Younger Years is available to buy on vinyl and CD via Big Scary Monsters or stream/download everywhere right now HERE.
