These New Puritans are set to release new album 'Field Of Reeds' later this year.
In a way, it was completely unexpected. Pigeonholed as promising but limited indie rock types, These New Puritans decided to break down these barriers with their second album.
Released back in 2010, 'Hidden' was a torrent of ideas, a stunning mixture of free jazz and left field rock, all delivered with an orchestral sweep. Since then, the band have played some very special live shows before heading back into the studio.
This morning, though, These New Puritans broke cover and announced details of their new album.
"hello people of the world wide web. we are releasing a new album. it’s called ‘Field of Reeds’. more information soon."
