Forgetting The FutureIndustrious and energetic Melbourne rockers British India have announced their sixth studio album and an enormous 32-date national tour.

The AIR Award-winning four-piece will release Forgetting The Future on September 22, and it’s produced by one of the most sought-after Aussie sound dudes (and all-round guitar prince, good egg) in the current landscape.

From the presser:

After five hugely successful albums, British India found themselves at crossroads. Forgetting The Future is the story of them destroying their world in order to live in it. For the first time, the band teamed up with an external producer; voyaging into previously unknown sonic territory with Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson. This revolutionary approach has led the band to create an explosive album that is their most ambitious and textured to date. “We were tapping into the same ferocity you feel when you first start writing songs,” vocalist Declan Melia says. “Just going for it, getting songs out without overthinking them, fast and hard. The way I see it, the sound is futuristic but it’s still raw.”

The group will play a launch show in their hometown on August 16 and then embark on tour beginning on the date of the album’s release, which will stretch all the way to mid-December. Full dates are below, as well as the clip for the album’s powerful first single, Precious.

Precious is out September 22 via Liberation.
