Yorkshire melodic punk rock trio have returned with their third album ‘Water Lane’.
Recorded earlier in 2015 in a makeshift studio in south Devon with Paul Yeadon (of Bivouac / The Wireless Stores), ‘Water Lane’ shows a natural progression from where they left off, bringing in subtle new influences and developing that well honed Above Them sound.
Forming over 10 years ago back in the winter of 2004, Above Them have since released 3 EPs, split 7”s with Cheap Girls, All Eyes West & The Amistad and 2 full lengths, toured the UK, Europe and the US countless times. The experience that the Pontefract trio has shines through in the new album. Above Them are no flash in the pan “next big thing”, just a genuine cathartic escape for three mates from a shitty small town in West Yorkshire.
Lots has changed for Above Them since the release of their last album three years ago; line up changes have come and gone, fatherhood, marriage. What hasn’t changed is their ability to write incredible melodic punk rock songs. Water Lane shows a natural progression from where they left off, bringing in subtle new influences and developing that distinctive Above Them sound.
