Melbourne’s Saskwatch are excited to announce the band will be touring the UK this May to play The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City Festival. The shows will see the band play new tracks from their third studio album Sorry I Let It Come Between Us out via Northside Records / Remote Control Records on Friday 12th of June 2015.
Sorry I Let It Come Between Us is an evolutionary album for the band. Shifting and sliding between guitar heavy pop, bluesy melancholy and soulful ballads, the new album offers an emotionally assertive voice matched equally in musical intricacies.
The album itself was recorded over a month long period at Mt Slippery – an old silversmith warehouse come recording studio on the outskirts of Philadelphia, America. It’s the studio of Dr Dog’s Scott McMicken and Nathan Sabatino, who together produced the album. Saskwatch have long been big fans of Dr Dog, both musically and in their work as producers, and relished at the chance to head overseas and work alongside them. The result: a raw, solemn and sparse collection of genre-jumping songs.
The first single from the album ‘I’ll Be Fine’ is an optimistic and fuzzy three minutes that serves as a great preface for the ten tracks to follow.
