Noirish North London alt.gothic rocksters Desperate Journalist follow up their spectacular November Kamio comeback show with big news a’plenty for the New Year. Firstly the feisty quartet will headline London’s Scala on April 6 th 2017. Tickets: https://dice.fm/event/desperate-journalist-6th-apr-scala-london-tickets
And secondly on March 24th they release the follow-up to 2015’s excellent ‘Desperate Journalist’ debut album. This sophomore effort is called ‘Grow Up’ and the first track off it the poundingly impassioned ‘Hollow’ has its video premiere via www.NBHAP.com on November 15th the very day the Scala tickets go on sale and ‘Grow Up’ is available to pre-order.
The ‘Grow Up’ album sees Desperate Journalist building on the sublimely tetchy moodswings of their self-titled debut and the intense interim ‘Good Luck’ EP by adding a fresh sonic sheen to their old school indie stroppings. This means that they sound meatier and bolder yet are still infused with a keen pop sensibility which ensures that ‘Grow Up’ contains at least five possible singles of which ‘Hollow’ is the first. You can buy ‘Hollow’ on the usual online outlets or get it gratis right now when you pre-order the ‘Grow Up’ album on CD and iTunes right here!
