THE DANSE SOCIETY - Announces New Album, First Details Revealed

The cult British goth/darkwave/post-punk band The Danse Society will release on 1st September via their own Society Records a new album entitled Sailing Mirrors. We can say that The Danse Society have produced an absolute cracker of an album. This album is the apotheosis of 40 years of history, featuring David Whitaker on keyboards on the title track.

40 years ago five fresh faced young lads from t'pit tarn of Barnsley emerged from the coal face of Yorkshire to make some noise - turns out it was good noise, dark and purposeful looking for an escape from the inevitability of a job down the mine. Self releasing the first single "Clock" the band slogged up and down the country and John Peel jumped on board offering sessions and support. Killing Joke, Bauhaus and The Cure support tours followed and the rest is history - major label, top 20 album, no hit single, dropped by major, split up - it was 1987; it was a short but bright burn at the beginning of the 80s which spawned an enthusiastic and loyal following, pestering for a reformation on the emerging social media platform of Facebook back in 2010. Since reformation, with a new new line-up, this time with female singer it was not an easy task to start anew, but the band have self released three albums, some singles and EP's to critical acclaim and are about to celebrate this 40th anniversary with their seventh studio album. It's been a busy last few years - tours abroad and headlining the darker underground festivals and continuing to build the fanbase, 33k listens a month on spotify and growing - this new album can only continue to push the band onwards into the 2020's.

More album details, song premieres and videos are about to follow soon. Until then we reveal to you the amazing front cover artwork created by Italian artist Alessandra Centi. Stay tuned for more. Link
