Civil Twilight have announced plans for their new single, ‘Fire Escape’, to be released on March 1 through Wind Up Records. With its distorted basslines and stadium-esque vocals, the track is taken from their forthcoming sophomore album Holy Weather, due for a UK release on April 8. The band will play a headline show at London’s Borderline on April 9 to follow.
Civil Twilight are Steven McKellar, his brother Andrew, Richard Wouters and Kevin Dailey. Steven, Andrew and Richard grew up in Cape Town, best friends since childhood. While their South African roots provided much inspiration, the three friends grew restless and relocated to Los Angeles. Their self-titled debut was recorded in South Carolina after which Steven, Andrew and Richard settled in Nashville. Now home, it’s here in Nashville where they met Kevin Dailey, inviting Dailey to join Civil Twilight to write and record Holy Weather.
