GENGAHR ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THEIR THIRD FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, SANCTUARY.
Gengahr have announced their highly anticipated third full-length album, Sanctuary, on 31st January 2020, via Liberator Music (part of The Mushroom Group). This comes ahead of their shows as special guests with Bombay Bicycle Club starting next Monday 4th November in Liverpool, as well as a full UK and European headline tour for February 2020. This will be with their biggest London show to date, at EartH on Friday 21st February.
Their album is set to be more expansive and ambitious than ever before, Sanctuary is the experimental alt-pop band’s finest body of work to date. It is a DIY triumph which welcomes old friend Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club as the producer, adding his distinct brand of symphonic sparkle to Gengahr’s complex, layered sound and pushing the band further into all-out pop territory than they’d ever dared stray before. Recorded at the brand new Propagation House way out in Bude in Cornwall, the album recaptures the magic that they discovered making their debut.
With mixing from the hugely in-demand Nathan Boddy, additional production from John Victor and engineering from James Bragg, Sanctuary is vibrant, intoxicating, intimate and alive; the product of friends having a good time. It is a heartfelt, sophisticated body of work that runs the full gamut of human feeling, with a positive ending in the form of the beautiful “Moonlight” – a harmonious conclusion of unison and togetherness, hinting at a bright future.
