Cornish alt-rock quartet Haunt the Woods today celebrate the release of the magical new album, Ubiquity, out via Spinefarm. The album release comes with a video for the track ‚Said And Done‘, which you can watch here:
The band comment: „Ubiquity is an immersive, sprawling album, defying genre in its attempt to ask the question “What is my place in this failing world?”. „The world is full of beauty, but also immeasurable pain. This album is an honest, personal account of an emotional journey that everybody can relate to and the earth shattering realisation that life, loss, growth, love, joy and pain are ubiquitous things, that everything is connected, in limitless ways, some of which we cannot even begin to understand.“
„We are so proud of this record, and it is our most collaborative and ambitious collection of work to date. We hope this music can help even just one person.“
Haunt the Woods are a curiously unique, effortlessly stunning band.
In the deepest reaches of the English countryside there is a sublime sound emanating from the landscape, and its name is Haunt the Woods. Timely and yet oddly timeless, this surprisingly youthful quartet span musical decades and worlds.
Recently signed with Spinefarm, it won’t be long before you hear plenty more from these musical mavericks, and with good reason. Formed in the hinterlands between Plymouth, Devon, and Cornwall, Haunt the Woods deftly interweave alt-rock, folk, prog and pop with an epic level of pomp and poetic elegance that suggests a far longer tenure than their young years suggest. There are tips of the hat to Queen and Muse, Jeff Buckley and Radiohead, and a sprinkled-in tinge of Beatles-loving pop sensibility and ManchesterOrchestra-esque poignancy: Haunt the Woods have that rare ability to conjure legacy while creating a bold sound that is newly their own. With two warmly received EPs and a debut album, Opaque (2020) which was released in 2020, the stage has been set for their overdue introduction to the world, which began with their stunning new single ‚Fever Dream‘. Cinematic in scope, operatic in texture, new album Ubiquity is a fitting illustration of the band’s prowess and talent.
