Brand new album 'Melancholia Hymns' set for release September 15th


The mighty ARCANE ROOTS release their huge, brand new single 'Off The Floor', along with this new video, which you can watch - HERE!
The single is available on all digital streaming and downloadable platforms from today, but will also be made available to everyone that has pre-ordered the new 'Melancholia Hymns' album (digitally) as an instant grat track. The record is released on September 15th through Easy Life/Red Essential, and includes already released singles 'Curtains' and 'Matter'.

Front-man and guitarist Andrew Groves explains a little bit about the meaning behind the song -  "Off The Floor was the very first time we had ever openly written about politics. Current world events had become an almost unavoidable weight over us during the writing of Melancholia Hymns, and where it would usually be something we would shy away from, it felt like now more than ever that we had a duty to speak up. Never before had it felt like something could actually change and that we had a responsibility to encourage people to vote and make a difference. Musically, we wanted to write something that felt at home on a festival stage but was structured more electronically, with a constant build towards as big of a riff/drop as we could dream up. "



ARCANE ROOTS return and announce their brand new album 'Melancholia Hymns', set for release on September 15th

A full UK and European tour kicks off after album release. 

After a wait of nearly 4 years, ARCANE ROOTS return with their stunning, brand new, 2nd album 'Melancholia Hymns', which is set for release through Easy Life/Red Essential on September 15th. The band also release their new single 'Matter' today (22nd May) following it's world exclusive first play last night on the Radio 1 Rock Show.

Listen to 'Matter' BELOW

The album release follows on from the first single 'Curtains', and much like that track, 'Melancholia Hymns' is full of ambition, electronica, riffs, strings, darkness and light. It is an album to lose yourself in completely, a complex musical journey for your mind and your heart. A record with so much love, care and attention that you can't help but feel the passion that has gone making it, and marvel at its scope and sheer size.

Pre-order's for the album are now also live (where you will also receive both 'Curtains' and 'Matter' straight away on digital formats) from below
