The Mysterines have announced their second album.

The follow-up to their 2022 debut 'Reeling' is called 'Afraid Of Tomorrows' and will arrive through Fiction Records on June 7.

Recorded with revered Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton in Los Angeles, the LP is previewed by the single Stray, which offers grungy, alt-rock guitars and arrives with a Matilda Harding-Kemp-directed video. Vocalist and guitarist Lia Metcalfe commented:

"Stray focuses on the aimless and untamed nature of the polarities of behaviour that we experience when dealing with suffering. Whether it's guilt, paranoia or unexplained feelings of grandiosity. Often when the hands of loneliness have a firm grip over one’s eyes it can turn dangers into open doors inviting you in. We find a certain point of no return and we’re often led astray."

Discussing the album, she added: "'Afraid Of Tomorrows' is a mirror where you find you’re nothing more than a formless being, one made from celestial constellations - of traumas, of the old and new, mistakes, addiction, fear and happiness, loneliness, but ultimately a desire for life and the fight to keep living. It’s a collage of what’s been lost and of love unbounded."

In 2023, the Merseyside band dropped the standalone single Begin Again, though it will not appear on the new record.

Having just wrapped up a slew of UK dates supporting Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, the four-piece will continue the European tour with a show in Berlin, Germany tomorrow (February 22).

They're also set to join Bloc Party as special guests for their 20th anniversary Crystal Palace Park, London show on July 7, and will appear at numerous UK and European festivals this spring and summer, including Focus Wales, Live At Leeds in the Park2000trees, Truck Festival and Tramlines.
