Poliša Announce New Album 'When We Stay Alive', Confirm UK And European Tour

Wednesday, 09 October 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Poliça have announced a new album.

‘When We Stay Alive’ is due to arrive on January 31 via Memphis Industries, and will be accompanied by tour dates in the UK and Europe in 2020. The electro-pop band head to Bristol’s Thekla, the Gorilla in Manchester, Glasgow’s St Lukes, the Village Underground in London and Brighton’s Concorde 2 between February 7 and 12, before hitting the road in mainland Europe. Tickets go on sale at 9am on October 11.

In addition, Poliça have shared the new LP’s first cut, Driving. With a buzzing synth bassline and shuffling, sketchy drums, the song builds a feeling of unease, but is also funky enough to demand further listens. Speaking of her back injury in 2018 that inspired the themes of recovery and reclaiming indentity on the record, frontwoman Channy Leaneagh said:

"Laying in bed, as I healed from a 10 foot fall of carelessness with my life, I would dream of running in green grass and tears would pour from my eyes. “Running in the tall tear grass; imagine wanting life and the want remains.” That is a feeling to hold onto; that life is worth living even when all the towers are crumbling and this goes beyond my own little accident but the world around me. Following the crone into the sinking ship and having the chance to return without a shadow. Drive on, Drive on. A second chance you won’t forget”.

Poliça also have shows lined up across North America this fall.

Fri February 7 2020 - BRISTOL Thekla
