SCOTLAND’S very own The Twilight Sad have returned with new music and a string of upcoming European dates.

Having abstained from releasing new material since the critically lauded Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants To Leave from 2014, the recorded hiatus from James Graham and Andy Macfarlane has come to a merciful end with the unveiling of ‘I/M Not Here (Missing Face).’

Awash with dissonant, fragmented noise that is offset by a hauntingly sparse piano melody and a driving rhythm, their debut on Mogwai’s ‘Rock Action Records’ is a languorous, contemplative number that reasserts the poeticism and aural substance that has long made them so enthralling to behold.  A revelatory return to the fray after Graham’s dabblings with Out Lines and a lengthy spell of support dates with The Cure that culminated in an emotional turn at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday, the band are set to embark on a US tour throughout the course of October before heading to Europe and; most excitingly, Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms in November.
