The Great Detachment – Available March 4, 2016
After much anticipation, Wintersleep has debuted their new single “Amerika” via The Wall Street Journal. The track is the first off their new album The Great Detachment, which will be released on March 4, 2016 and the song will be available as an instant grat on the album pre-order beginning on January 15.
The band recorded the majority of The Great Detachment live-off-the-floor, adding an organic and transparent aural aesthetic to the collection. The album is very much an introspective work, both conceptually and thematically. It delivers a welcome dose of the atmospheric, entrancing alt-rock for which the band has become known, with beautifully orchestrated arrangements anchored by haunting, almost hypnotic vocal melodies. “It’s a very different energy,” vocalist/guitarist Paul Murphy opines, “and one that we kind of missed.”
