And So I Watch You From Afar launch A Slow Unfolding Of Wings

And So I Watch You From Afar

And So I Watch You From Afar have released a video for their track A Slow Unfolding Of Wings – watch it above.

It’s taken from fifth album The Endless Shimmering, which arrives on October 20 via Sargent House. The Northern Irish outfit’s follow-up to 2015’s Heirs is available for pre-order now in digital and physical formats. Tracklist can be found below.

Bassist Johnathan Adger says: “We laid everything bare and put everything we had into the songs. We hope people can feel that and use that, without us having to be too overt in how we present it.

“The album was charged with a lot of what we were all going through as individuals – but we wanted to allow it to become people’s soundtrack to whatever they need in their lives at this moment.”

Guitarist Rory Friers adds: “We wrote around 30 tracks before decided which nine would make the record. We then spent a long time playing them every day, to allow them to become almost as if we’d already toured them, ingrained in our muscle-memory.”

And So I Watch You From Afar commence a 42-date European tour on October 18, ending on December 31 and including a run of UK and Irish dates from November 23 – full dates below.
