2 min read

Prides are an unstoppable force. Their highly anticipated debut album, The Way Back Up, is to be released on July 10 on Island Records; with the lead single ‘Messiah’ coming on July 6. This coincides with the first new global release date for albums and will be available everywhere for eager fans who have been patiently waiting. You can pre-order the album here.

Prides The Way Back UpThe album is full of big tunes that match their enormous live performances. Prides are a band that own every venue they play so it is not surprising that after a phenomenal performance at the Closing Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games and hot off the back of a second sold out UK tour that they have been confirmed sets this summer at Reading and Leeds Festival (headlining the BBC Introducing stage), Latitude (headlining Huw Stephens stage) and will be breaking records on the day of the album release by being the first band to play the main stage at the new site for T in the Park. This all comes after their first headline US Tour this month aptly named ‘Out of the Red White and Blue Tour’.

Singer, Stewart Brock says, ‘It’s been amazing working together on this album. We started writing demo’s close on two years ago, and the ride we’ve been on since then has been incredible. We’ve had the opportunity to do some great things and meet some awesome people, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear what we’ve come up with.

Getting the chance to go out and play the new songs live over the summer is something we’ve all been excited for, never mind our release day falling on the day we play the MainStage at T in the Park, we can’t think of a much better way to celebrate. It’s been a long time coming, but it’s time to let this album lose on the world. We hope you love it’.
