The Blinders Unveil New Single/Video “Always”

The Blinders Unveil New Single/Video "Always"

Manchester-based alt-rock band The Blinders have unveiled their new single “Always“, alongside an accompanying video.

The track is the second taste of their upcoming album ‘Beholder‘, set to be released on Friday 1st March 2024 via A Funhouse Recordings / EMI. Pre-order it here

Beholder is a record born out of a period of flux within the band; their previous drummer left the group in 2020, Thomas ‘Cass’ Castrey who used to be the band’s tech on the road took over the drum stool full time, while keyboard player Johnny James was also recruited as Haywood and Doncaster school friend and fellow Blinders’ founder, bassist Charlie McGough, realised the interruption in their band’s life opened more possibilities than the doors it closed.

The record shares a frenetic energy with their previous albums but there’s a new depth both lyrically and musically to the album. Launay and Greenspan’s astute rock production adds wider atmospheres and sophisticated textures and lyrically the band effortlessly marry angry social observations with a personal desperation which sees Beholder sweep rollercoaster-like through minimal then maximalist twists and turns.
