Hypophora detail new album Douse, stream new single “Spires”

Official press release:

South West post hardcore quartet Hypophora are pleased to reveal the details of their forthcoming debut album Douse, released on the 21st September via Easy Action/Zen Ten Records.

After new single titled “Spires” premiered on BBC Radio Devon and Cornwall and Amazing Radio, the music video for the single then premiered with The Digital Fix. Check it out here below:

Hypophora have had an impressive and busy twelve months, supporting the likes of post hardcore giants He Is Legend, ex-Dance Gavin Dance frontman Kurt Travis, UK alt rockers VANT on their recent farewell tour, as well as math rockers Allusondrugs. The band are gearing up 2018’s festival season as well as an abundance of live dates over the next few months to help promote the forthcoming debut album release Douse.

The band explain when talking about the forthcoming album:

“We’d like to bring guitar music back to the mainstream but bring it back with important and relatable lyrical messages, unconventional song structure, odd timings and a fusion style approach to mixing genres. There’s far too much music at the moment with transparent, bland, emotionless lyrical content and chord structures/riffs that have been done a thousand times. We wanna bring weird and interesting music back!”

Pre-order Douse today via Easy Action’s webstore.
