It's a new and exciting era for Boston Manor.

Boston manor have today announced the follow up to their 2016 album 'Be Nothing'. Here's everything you need to know about it:

01. It's called 'Welcome To The Neighbourhood'

02. It's being released September 07 through Pure Noise Records

03. The album art looks a bit like this:

04. The album is based on a fictional, distopian version of the band's hometown of Blackpool
Frontman Henry Cox has said about the concept “In the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, Blackpool was this booming town. It was a holiday destination, a place where you can go to forget all your troubles and now things here are just so fucked up – there are huge drug problems and a 40 per cent unemployment rate in the winter. It was once this beautiful thing and it’s become a little bit broken.”

But the theme is also laced with hope. “I’m just trying to draw attention to a few issues,” continues Henry. “The things that are important to my generation are just so trivial in my eyes, but who am I to say? I can’t really offer any immediate solutions, but I can try to throw a bucket of cold water on some of my peers, to just get them to feel more and think more and not be so apathetic.”                 

05. The first single from the album is 'Halo' (and it's a certified banger)
 

06. 'Halo' very nearly didn't make it on to the album at all
Speaking on the debut single from the album, Henry explains “’Halo’ almost got scrapped & didn’t make the album. It was a totally different song, much slower and moodier. About a month before we went into the studio we reworked it entirely & it morphed into this current incarnation. It’s a song about feeling trapped; being in a vicious cycle & not knowing if there’ll ever be a way out.”

07. Boston Manor are hitting the road, and have announced a UK tour in support of the release of the album
