In advance of the tour, the band celebrate the release of the album with sold out shows at London Electric Ballroom 31st May,  plus two special shows at Ebbw Vale Institute on the 8th and 9th of June, the city where the album was recorded.

Every Valley, the follow up to 2015’s hugely successful Race For Space, is the band’s third album though their first for independent label Play It Again Sam. It examines the history of coal mining in South Wales. It is a record about community and what happens to an area when its lifeblood is ripped from it and as much as anything, it is a metaphor for a much larger, global and social malaise.

PSB’s J. Willgoose, Esq. explains: “I have no personal ties to mining, be it coal or otherwise, and I have no family links to the area, but something about the story drew me in. Perhaps the romanticism of the valleys and their geography attracted me to South Wales in particular.” Find a full statement on the album here.

Every Valley features a diverse cast of collaborators, including Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield on the track ‘Turn No More’.

Watch the video for Progress, the first single from this record, featuring Camera Obscura’s Tracyanne Campbell.
