Basement have announced details of their new LP, Beside Myself, which will be released on October 12th.
Basement’s Andrew Fisher commented on “Disconnect” explaining, “This song was one of the first we wrote over two summers ago and we knew very early on that it would be a song we would enjoy playing live.”
While Beside Myself is not exactly a concept record, themes of the album do often relate to the inability of being comfortable in one’s skin, being concerned about the future, troubled about the past, and how difficult it can be to exist in the moment. Produced by Colin Brittain and Basement, and mixed by Rich Costey, Beside Myself marks Basement’s Fueled By Ramen label debut and follows their 2016 breakthrough album, Promise Everything.
Formed in Ipswich, England, Basement is comprised of brothers Andrew Fisher (Vocals) and James Fisher (Drums), Alex Henery (Guitar/Vocals), Ronan Crix (Guitar), and Duncan Stewart (Bass). Together they have earned global acclaim for their deeply personal and earnest compositions. Beside Myself finds Basement’s introspection unfolding over a collection of punk-charged alternative classics. Tracks such as the first radio single, “Disconnect,” “Be Here Now,” and “Stigmata” shine, as Fisher’s acute self-awareness unfurls over deeply-rich studio recordings.
Basement have also announced a fall U.K. headline tour in support of Beside Myself, which kicks off November 16th, includes a London show at the 2,300 capacity O2 Forum Kentish Town.
