We Were Promised Jetpacks

We Were Promised Jetpacks have announced that they will release their second album, entitled ‘In The Pit Of The Stomach’, via FatCat on 3 Oct. That’s ages away, but you can hear a track from it, ‘Act On Impulse’, on the band’s website now.

Frontman Adam Thompson says of the new record: “We had been touring the debut album extensively for over two years, so we were very excited to get back in the studio and record the follow-up, which we hope demonstrates how much we have progressed as a band. We recorded the debut album in eight days with one short tour under our belts – this time around we spent a full three weeks in the studio recording with [live sound engineer] Andrew Bush and made an album that both captures the sound of our live show and is strong from start to finish”.

The band will also be touring again later this year. Look:
