Ahead of a month long American tour starting this week in Chicago, WOLF ALICE debut their new song, DON’T DELETE THE KISSES, available to stream and download now. The track is the second to be lifted from the band’s forthcoming, eagerly anticipated album VISIONS OF A LIFE, and follows the exhilarating rage rush of current single, YUK FOO, released last month.
Listen to DON’T DELETE THE KISSES here:
VISIONS OF A LIFE will be released on 29 September via Dirty Hit Records in digital, CD and limited edition white vinyl formats. The album is available to pre-order now, with DON’T DELETE THE KISSES and YUK FOO both available as instant grat downloads; and the vinyl comes with a bonus 7 inch when pre-ordered via the band’s store.
VISIONS OF A LIFE is fundamentally a personal album, and one of great growth for WOLF ALICE. Their progression and maturity as songwriters is particularly evident in the beautifully paced, sweet and slow-burning DON’T DELETE THE KISSES, a dizzyingly romantic track that tells of the delicious agony of unspoken love. It’s a sentimental love song for people that don’t do sentimental love songs until they find themselves there. In love.
“How awful is that, I’m like a teenage girl,” sings Ellie. “I might as well write all over my notebook that you ‘rock my world’.”
WOLF ALICE are ELLIE ROWSELL [vocals and guitar] JOFF ODDIE [guitar and vocals] THEO ELLIS [bass] and JOEL AMEY [drums and vocals] and are one of the biggest breakthrough independent bands of recent years.
