MUSIC NEWS: SHVPES Announce Debut Album Details
SHVPES have announced that they will be releasing their debut album PAIN. JOY. ECSTACY. DESPAIR on the 14th October via Seatch & Destroy/Spinefarm Records.
“As a concept, this album is about finding the beauty in whatever situation you’re in,” explains frontman Griffin Dickinson. “Your ability to feel pain/ to feel despair is ultimately what allows you to embrace the feeling of joy or ecstasy. It’s like yin & yang. ‘Pain. Joy. Ecstacy. Despair.’ gave me a platform to expel 24 years’ worth of frustration and turn it into something positive; something I can be proud of and something, I hope, the listener can find solace in.”
The band have already released two tracks that will feature on the album – God Warrior and False Teeth – but you can check out their new single Two Minutes Of Hate below:
SHVPES will play two sold-out shows in support of Asking Alexandria next month, dates are as follows:
Mon 15th – SOUTHAMPTON – Engine Rooms
Tue 16th – LONDON – KOKO
