Shvpes Announce Second Album 'Greater Than'

Wednesday, 11 July 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Shvpes have announced the release of their second studio album, 'Greater Than'.

The follow up to 2016's 'Pain. Joy. Ecstasy. Despair' will arrive via Search and Destroy/Spinefarm Records on November 9. It was written in Snowdonia, Wales and recorded at Treehouse Studios in Chesterfield with producer Jim Pinder. 

Having initially planned to run with three mixtapes leading into the full record next year, the band have decided to bring the album forward, after recently putting out the first single, Undertones. Disussing the album, the band said:

"We’ve decided to bring you the full Shvpes experience this year with Album 2: 'Greater Than’ out on November 9th. We’re intensely proud of these tracks. We think they deserve to be experienced together in all of their glory. And we will have more to share with you very soon. We’re gutted to keep you guys in suspense, but we promise it’ll be worth the wait!"
