Two years on from releasing the feast of awesomeness that was, and is, Stunning Luxury, Snapped Ankles are back with their third album. Entitled Forest Of Your Problems, the album is set for release on July 2nd through The Leaf Label, who note in their press release:
“Snapped Ankles return to the forest, but it’s not as they left it. Trees planted in neat rows. A well-ordered monoculture with access roads and heavy machinery. The smell of greenwashed money in the air. There’s no sign of the ancient woodland they emerged from on debut album, Come Play The Trees. And it’s far cry from the gentrified East London they found themselves hawking on Stunning Luxury. All is not well in the face of progress. Welcome to the Forest Of Your Problems.”
Regular collaborator Danalogue of The Comet Is Coming is again on mixing duties on Forest Of Your Problems. And when it comes to formats, we’re spoiled for choice, with four different vinyl editions available, aligned with the newly formed factions of “the famously close-knit woodwose community”, The Business Imp, The Cornucopian, The Nemophile and The Protester.
The absolute banger that is ‘Rhythm Is Our Business’ serves a killer lead single and it begs for dancing. The single comes with a video directed by Daisy Dickinson.
Snapped Ankles have announced a UK and EU tour in October and November, and you can check all their stops and other info here.
