News of the return of Maybeshewill with a new album and teaser video.
Maybeshewill (an instrumental band born in the city of Leicester. “A bunch of whiny, lefty soyboys with a few great songs here and there” says their Instagram) has returned from their 2016 hiatus with new album No Feeling Is Final which is set for release on 19th November and will be released on the bands own Robot Needs Home Collective Label.
No Feeling Is Final was born from a place of weary exasperation. From the knowledge that we’re living in a world hurtling towards self-destruction. We watch as forests burn and seas rise. As the worst tendencies of humanity are championed by those in power; rage, fear, greed and apathy. We see every injustice, every conflict, every catastrophe flash up on our screens. We stay complacent and consume to forget our complicity in the structures and systems that sustain that behaviour. As the world teeters on the edge of disaster, we sigh and keep scrolling, the uneasy feeling in our stomachs eating away at us a little more each day.
Since 2006 Maybeshewill have released four full-length albums of towering, cinematic instrumental music. After a decade long career that saw them tour across four continents they bowed out in 2016 with a sold out show at London’s Koko.
Having reformed briefly in 2018 at the request of The Cure’s Robert Smith for a show at Meltdown Festival, 2021 sees the band return with their first new material since 2014’s Fair Youth. Having worked on ideas separately in the intervening years, it was the sketches of music that would become No Feeling Is Final that pulled the band back together. Building on the songs that they felt needed to be heard, together.
Maybeshewill will also perform their first London headline show since 2016 at Islington Assembly Hall on 15th December 2021. Tickets are on sale now.
The band have also shared a brand new video for Refuturing – a track focused on the existential dread surrounding the climate crisis.
