The Midnight is excited to release their transcendent new single “Avalanche” today – the third from the band’s forthcoming new studio album Heroes – due out September 9th via Counter Records. Started by Southern-born singer-songwriter Tyler Lyle and Danish-bred drummer and producer Tim McEwan, The Midnight is rounded out by Lelia Broussard on bass, Royce Whittaker on guitar, and Justin Klunk on saxophone and synth. The expanded line-up has given the band the ability to grow way beyond their synth-heavy beginnings and create music that showcases their ability to write soaring and emotive songs with arena rock chords and infectious pop hooks.
“Avalanche” follows last month’s single “Heartbeat,” a rousing and electrifying track that was preceded by “Change Your Heart or Die” – a propulsive guitar-laden song released in April following the band’s massive Spring 2022 tour. The band just toured across the UK and Ireland, selling out shows in Dublin, Glasgow and London’s Brixton Academy. It marked their third ever London show, previously selling out the Roundhouse, with The Express insisting that they are “without question, one of the next iconic rock acts of the generation” in their glowing review.
Heroes is The Midnight’s fourth full-length studio album and was produced by McEwan and mixed by Ingmar Carlson (Tate McCrae, Disclosure, Carly Rae Jepsen). Written during the isolation of COVID quarantine, Heroes faces the feeling of being alone by inviting the whole world to dance under one roof. It’s an album that celebrates the connected nature of man, the way we overcome loss by coming together under one sky and howling at the moon; drinking, hugging, laughing and singing songs at the top of our lungs. The songs on the LP combine Tyler’s all-American dreamer tales seamlessly with Tim’s cinematic soundscapes. These are big, bold and memorable songs about togetherness and trials won by love.
Heroes is set to drop September 9th via Counter Records and you can pre-order/pre-save the album HERE.
