The Story So Far Announce New Album 'Proper Dose', Share First Single Let It Go

Thursday, 19 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

The Story So Far have announced a new album.

'Proper Dose', the follow up to their 2015 self-titled LP, will arrive on September 21 through Pure Noise. Vocalist Parker Cannon said:

“We were so burnt from touring, and playing the same songs over and over again. We knew we had to take a step back and collect ourselves.

This one, all the way through, I just think it’s leaps and bounds ahead of anything we’ve ever done."

Guitarist Kevin Geyer added:

“We didn’t really have a deadline. And the biggest enabler of us getting the record to where we wanted it was having time to work on it.

Since our last record, we’ve all collectively really gotten into The Beatles. It’s not like we’re trying to sound like The Beatles, but it just gives you a crash course in songwriting and how you can experiment but retain your identity.”

Check out the record's first single, Let It Go, artwork and tracklist below.

'Proper Dose' tracklist:

  1. Proper Dose
  2. Keep This Up
  3. Out Of It
  4. Take Me As You Please
  5. Let It Go
  6. Upside Down
  7. If I Fall
  8. Need To Know
  9. Line
  10. Growing On You
  11. Light Year

Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.
Tool - Fear Inoculum (Album Review)
Fri 06 Sep 2019
Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
