Pillow Queens have shared details of a new album.

'Leave The Light On' marks the Dublin band's sophomore full-length and will arrive on April 1 via Royal Mountain Records. It follows their 2020 debut 'In Waiting'.

Alongside the announcement, the group have dropped the single Be By Your Side, a folky indie-rock jam. Singer and bassist Pamela Connolly said:

"This song is about the mechanisms that are used to hide your vulnerabilities and carry on. But also, the feeling of being about to burst and how cathartic it could be to allow yourself to let your emotions out and feel the world around you. This was one of the first songs we finished on the album as it was the quickest to become fully realized by all of us."

In addition to UK and Ireland dates in the spring, the four-piece will embark on their first North American trek, which includes their debut appearance at SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. They also have a tour of Ireland in the diary for the autumn.

'Leave The Light On' tracklist:

1. Be By Your Side
2. The Wedding Band
3. Hearts & Minds
4. House That Sailed Away
5. Delivered
6. Well Kept Wife
7. No Good Woman
8. Historian
9. My Body Moves
10. Try Try Try
