She Makes War’s latest single ‘Drown Me Out’ out now!‏

She Makes War‘s latest single Drown Me Out is out now via via The state51 Conspiracy. The track is taken from Laura’s forthcoming album Direction Of Travel, which is out on April 8th 2016 (online) and April 29th 2016 (physical) and is available to pre-order via She Makes War’s Bandcamp page now.

Drown Me Out combines an unabashed love of 90s alt-rock with the gothic undertones of Sisters of Mercy and early Echo & The Bunnymen. Shimmering, grungey guitars bolster Laura’s urgent vocals as she tells a tale of suffocation and revenge – it’s a bold statement of intent and a great introduction to She Makes War’s ambitious new album.

You can watch the video for single Drown Me Out via Laura’s YouTube channel now.

Direction Of Travel was recorded in the winter months of 2014/15 in Bristol, Brighton and London. Produced by She Makes War, mixed by Dan Austin (Doves, Pixies) and featuring guest appearances from Tanya Donelly and Mark Chadwick, most of the instruments on the album were played by Laura herself, added to by a cast of supporting musician friends including Clive Deamer and Andy Sutor on drums, The McCarricks and Nicole Robson on strings and Cajita on piano.

The songs on Direction Of Travel reveal widescreen ambition, deepening the glittery, grunge-inflected guitar driven sound of She Makes War’s back catalogue while exploring new worlds of cinematic orchestration and heartfelt, confessional songwriting. The songs vibrate with sadness but the album’s message is hopeful – we can all become strong enough to reclaim ourselves, to escape from suffocating situations, process sadness and sorrow and emerge all the stronger for the experience.
