WACO have announced their sophomore album Hope Rituals, due for release on 28th August 2020 via Venn Records.
The band have also released a video for their new single Dark Before The Dawn, with all proceeds from the track donated to the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
“This song is about hope, collectivism and our future,” explains frontman Jak Hutchraft. “It’s about how ideas and dreams can change the world. It’s about how we can be proud of how far we’ve come, while still fighting for a better tomorrow. It’s about how peace and progression will come through relearning our connection with the earth, the animals and the entire biosphere here on earth. This is a manic stream of consciousness that arose after a short period of freewriting. However, it feels oddly prescient, given the current social climate. The message is greatly important to us in these times and always. Black lives matter.”
