BDRMM SHARE NEW SINGLE “PULLING STITCHES”
NEW ALBUM “I DON’T KNOW” OUT JUNE 30TH ON ROCK ACTION
Following the release of 2020’s widely-acclaimed debut LP “Bedroom”, and a clutch of hotly-received singles that have landed in the interim, February saw the Hull based shoegaze quartet bdrmm return with the news that they had signed to Mogwai’s Rock Action and that the revered independent label would release an anticipated second album “I Don’t Know” on June 30th.
Like their debut, the album has been recorded with long-time band collaborator Alex Greaves (Working Men’s Club, Bo Ningen) at The Nave Studios in Leeds.HEREPre-Order
Following the album’s first release, “It’s Just A Bit Of Blood”, that saw significant press support internationally before making the playlist at BBC 6 Music in the Spring, and its trippy, densely rhythmic follow-up track “Be Careful”, the band return today with “Pulling Stitches”, a song that explores controlled dynamics with an almost cinematic feel to its widescreen expanse. The band’s Ryan Smith saying the following about the third single:
“I remember the exact day that we wrote this track. We were in the practise room, and I just started playing the first two chords, incorporating the bend as if I was literally winking at Kevin Shields, and Conor just looked at me like, “This is the one”. I think we finished the track on that day. It’s amazing when those moments happen, and it reminds you of why you do this. It’s so obviously the shoegaze adoration within us.”
The band have announced plans for a string of instore performances around the album, with tickets available by pre-ordering the album through the individual stores.
The band have also announced a new run of European live dates for October, which will come ahead of a series of UK headline dates in November (including their biggest London headliner yet at Scala).
