The new album In The Pit Of The Stomach drops on October 4th (October 3rd in the UK) and was recorded in Sigur Ros’ Sundlaugin Studios in the frozen wilds of Iceland Lead singer Adam Thompson describes the follow-up to These Four Walls as a “progression” for the band and a more realized recording process.
“We recorded the debut album in 8 days with one short tour under our belts – this time around we spent a full three weeks in the studio recording with [live sound engineer] Andrew Bush and made an album that both captures the sound of our live show and is strong start to finish.”
