"I think the third album is where you have to realise who you are as an artist" - Henry Cox
Inside the current issue of Rock Sound, we spoke to Boston Manor's Henry Cox all about the creation of their new album 'GLUE'. Check out the full interview inside the mag by picking up a copy now from SHOP.ROCKSOUND.TV
In this little taste, Henry admits how months on the road had affected how he was approaching how he thought the band should follow up '18's 'Welcome To The Neighbourhood':
“I do remember there being a brief, but significant point when it was like, ‘I don’t think we can write another record where the songs have as much substance as the last one’. Everything we were writing seemed to be so confused, because we were confused through being so strung out.”
“I think the third album is where you have to realise who you are as an artist and be confident in putting that out into the world. We realised that ‘GLUE’ was the album, lyrically, and tonally that we needed to work on.
“But, the whole pressure of the third album got to us... we ended up writing a big fucking checklist of things that meant we were sort of writing to a brief. We got to the point where we were genuinely having some serious doubts, but it just sort of happened.
“It sounds really clichéd, and every band says, ‘We threw the rulebook out the window’, but we realised that we were getting in our own way,” That's where the spirit of ‘Glue’ lives."
