Galley Beggar premiere Empty Sky video

Acid folk troupe Galley Beggar have premiered their video for Empty Sky with Prog.

It’s taken from third album Silence & Tears, which will be released via Rise Above Records on May 4.

It’s the first time the six-piece have worked with a producer, in the form of Liam Watson of Tame Impala and White Stripes fame.

Galley Beggar say their aim is “to imagine the next phase of English folk rock.”

Rise Above describe the resulting work as “stamped with beautiful psychedelic flourishes and a contemporary yet timeless sound.”

The band play London’s Constitution on May 25 and the Leigh Folk Festival, Essex, on June 28. Silence & Tears is available for pre-order now. (opens in new tab)

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
