Published Jul 06, 2009Scottish indie rock savants the Twilight Sad have announced that they'll be releasing their highly anticipated second album, and follow-up to 2007's Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters. The album is titled Forget the Night Ahead, and will be released on September 22 courtesy of the good folks at Fat Cat.
Said to be much heavier and thematically darker than their previous work, Forget the Night Ahead's tracklisting alone suggests some pretty serious subject matter, with titles like "I Became A Prostitute," "The Neighbours Can't Breathe" and "Made to Disappear."
According to front-man James Graham, the record is "definitely rougher around the edges than the first one. It's not a flat, technically polished album. It's very rough but melodic at the same time. We didn't want to make an album that sounded too produced. This album is more raw than the first one but again, it's still developed."
Prior to the album's arrival, the band will release "I Became A Prostitute" as a single on August 3. The record's b-side will be non-album track "In the Blackout." The Twilight Sad have also booked a North American tour to coincide with the album's release. The dates are below the tracklisting.
