Honeyblood’s stunning new record In Plain Sight is finally out now (via Marathon Artists). The new album - Honeyblood’s third - sees Stina Tweeddale finding her most ambitious form and steely focus yet, stepping forward to claim the project she created seven years ago as her solo vision. In Plain Sight is now available as a download, CD and LP via www.honeyblood.co.uk.
Full of big, bold, songwriting and no longer content to be tied to one limited genre, In Plain Sight is woven with mysterious themes of illusion and deception; Tweeddale describes the album as “one big trick”. Being hoodwinked never felt so exciting. Echoing that sentiment, for the album's stunning artwork, Tweeddale researched optical illusionists and met Peruvian visual artist Cecilia Parades, who eventually agreed to painstakingly paint her into the ornate fabrics seen on the cover across two eight-hour sittings.
Tweeddale takes the reins in collaboration with super-producer John Congleton (Angel Olsen, St Vincent, Sharon Van Etten) for the most definitive Honeyblood LP to date - as sonically gung-ho as peak era Garbage or the modern day likes of St Vincent - consolidating the Glasgow-born band as one of the most important names in UK indie.
Honeyblood are currently in the midst of a mammoth run of 3o dates around the United Kingdom, dubbed the ‘No Drama’ tour, culminating on 15 June at The Brewery in Kendal.
Recognised as one of the hardest working bands in the country, the all-new full live Honeyblood line-up have today announced a further run of UK headline dates for October & November 2019, including a Halloween bonanza at The Garage in London on 31 October. The band have also recently shared news of main stage festival appearances at both Latitude and Citadel this summer. Tickets for all shows are available now.
