With Melbourne post-hardcore outfit Belle Haven about to release their second album You, Me And Everything In Between, they’ve sent us the first listen of their brand new single ‘You.’ and its technicolour new clip.
With the album it’s taken from being described as “a cautionary tale” for other bands, a lot of what that ‘everything in between’ refers to involves the pitfalls that come with being a young act, and the dodgy dealings they’ve encountered along the way. On ‘You.’, the anger is palpable.
“The band has been screwed around by so many ‘professionals’ and ‘friends’ over the past few years and we’ve never really spoken out about it,” says guitarist Chris Vernon. “It’s liberating to feel like we’re finally talking about it to some degree.”
After releasing their debut Everything’s Ablaze and heading across Australia and the U.S. with rockers Norma Jean, the band wrapped up their American tour in Atlanta, Georgia, then decided to finally produce their second album there after plenty of untold drama.
As vocalist David Vernon explains, the impending release has been “a long time coming”.
“There are way too many people in the world who feel used, betrayed and manipulated on a daily basis. I hope this record can resonate with those people and inspire them to come to terms with when it’s right to burn a bridge. I’ve been there so many times and that’s the hardest part; knowing when to leave.”
With the album done and dusted, though, the band are ready to celebrate the impending release, and are heading across Australia with their new Greyscale Records labelmates Deadlights and Adelaide’s Ambleside, with a four date tour kicking off on June 2 – tickets are on sale now, and dates are below.
Until then, you can order your copy of the record here, and check out the brand new cut, ‘You.’
