Boston Manor have released another song from their forthcoming album ‘Datura’ – ‘Inertia’ is out now. ‘Datura’ will be released on October 14th, via SharpTone Records and features the previously released ‘Passenger,’ which delves into the record’s nighttime aesthetic with the kind of intense and unrestrained burst of an anthemic chorus for which the band have become known in recent years. The darkness, literally and metaphorically, is also exemplified with ‘Foxglove,’ the album’s crunching, catchy first single, released back in April.
Says vocalist Henry Cox of the meaning behind the track: “‘Inertia’ is a love song I wrote for my wife, the support of whom has guided me through some of the darkest times in my adult life. The partners of touring artists are often forgotten about. They have to spend months alone without the person they love whilst we fly around the world with our friends. They comfort us when we’re homesick, cheer us on when we win, and console us when we lose. Often they can be a lifeline to our friends and family, a bridge back to the real world. To me, my wife is many things, home being one of them. This record is about the darkness in my life and the end of the album marks the exit from it. Without her that never would have been possible.”
Boston Manor will be on tour with Alexisonfire on their UK and European tour this Fall.
