Rock band Boston Manor from Blackpool, England has released a new video for their single, “Halo.” This track is the band’s lead single from their upcoming sophomore album, Welcome To The Neighbourhood, which is due out September 7th via Pure Noise Records.
The former pop-punk band has made a bold style change with their new album venturing into an extremely catchy post-hardcore direction that is reminiscent of bands such as Lower Than Atlantis, Hands Like Houses, and I The Mighty. The new sound blends perfectly with the attention-grabbing music video for “Halo” plus the art that sets the aesthetic for Welcome To The Neighbourhood with lots of mysterious imagery drenched in beautiful red cinematography.
This upcoming record is just as emotionally charged and meaningful as ever for the band. With that comes a hope that this album by addressing the issues it does can have a positive impact on the future.
“I’m just trying to draw attention to a few issues,” singer Henry Cox says.
“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.”
