Electric River Writing For 2/3rd Album

It's come to that time again where we start to think about putting out a new record. The new E.P 'In Your Name' is going to be released very soon Sep/Oct with a full U.K tour to promote it, all of the planning and prep work is in motion. So leading up to this point we have a few small festivals/gigs to play & writing to finish up. Many of you that have supported the band for a long time (which we so appreciate!) will know we haven't put out a full length album since 2008/9 & it's been a long time coming with many new songs making their way into our live shows. We want to make sure our second album is totally right & now feel we are on the cusp of something special. New demos are coming thick & fast to compliment some of the already well known tracks, at this rate we'll have enough material for 2 new albums!!! So make sure you keep an eye on our websites as there are a lot of plans coming your way. For now enjoy this rough demo of a new track called 'Back Breaker'
