LISTEN // Bishop Allen Share “Why I Had To Go” Via Noisey Premiere, New Album Out August 19th




You may have heard Bishop Allen makes their triumphant return with their first album in 5 years out August 19th. We already previewed the new album’s first track “Start Again”, and today Noisey premiered a second track from the album, “Why I Had To Go”. More than catchy, the new song will hopefully hold you over until mid-August. Hear the track above or hear it on our Soundcloud / YouTube.

Pre-order the new album Lights Out via SC Distribution for the deluxe bundle which includes limited-edition white vinyl, a CD, downloads, + a hand-screened glow-in-the-dark poster. You can also get the album on iTunes, Amazon, or at your local record store.

The band returns to Brooklyn for their record release show at Glasslands on August 21st to start off the first of many tour dates supporting the new album. More dates will be announced soon.
