It’s been some time since we have heard from Midlake. Last week the band officially returned with a big announcement on their site, and the release of a new song, for free. The note on the site announced their return with a new album titled Antiphon, but also the departure of band member Tim Smith.
hello friends. many days have passed since we saw you last. it’s been a couple years since we released any music, and it’s been months since we last performed live. the time passed has brought progression, changes, hope and joy. we are pleased to announce that our new album entitled Antiphon will be released this Fall. we are beyond excited to share this new record with everyone. since the departure of tim smith from midlake in November of last year, we’ve worked days and nights in the studio to write and record this album. we’ve pushed ourselves and challenged ourselves and feel that Antiphon represents an ultimate genesis both musically and spiritually.
We have so many great announcements and plans developing but more than anything, we are excited to perform these new songs along with our past favorites live for you. We look forward to seeing some of you in August and if we miss you then, we will see you in the months following. There are several tour dates brewing stateside and overseas so please check in frequently on this page as the updates will be coming often. onward!
The haunting chamber-folk that the band creating so well is still there, even if there is a noticeable difference with Tim on the lead vocals. The band still channel the same creative energy that make them so compelling, making it a more than worthwhile listen. Download it for free below.
