Details of the forthcoming release were shared today (October 27), and see the London two-piece tease their first new album since ‘Bob Vylan Presents the Price of Life’, which arrived last year.

Set for release on April 5 2024 – and available to pre-order here – the band assured fans that the upcoming LP will continue with much of the rage and urgency that they have come to be known and loved for, yet see them evolve as songwriters and become “stronger and wiser” with their experience.

The final result, the duo confirm, is a blend of dark motifs underpinned by a defiant, high-energy sound. The lyrical inspiration will look to critique what the band perceive as a broken social and political system that so many feel powerless against.

“This album is for the underdogs, the ones who come out swinging and those who refuse to be defeated in the face of injustice, and aims to remind listeners that anger is a fire that can be harnessed and put to use. The album creation started from a conversation with the sun, which is, after all, a big ball of fire that sustains life,” Bob Vylan said of the upcoming album.

“From masculinity to myths about the G Spot, the themes and topics explored on ‘Humble As The Sun’ make for an often humorously empowering celebration of the people’s ability to endure, overcome and bring about change.”
