The Presets have today confirmed the release of their new album ‘Hi Viz’ and a national tour in support of it.
Firstly the new album, however… Its name was confirmed by the boys back in February when they dropped the single ’14U+14ME’.
Of course that track’s 2017 predecessor ‘Do What You Want’ also features on the new LP, along with collaborations with DMAs and Alison Wonderland, plus ten other new songs.
“We wanted to make something that was literally meant to get you out of your head”, Julian explains. “All the songs on HI VIZ are outward looking so in that respect it’s much more like our earlier stuff.
“It’s about trying to capture that energy you get on a great night out with your friends when you get to leave everything else behind you for a while. We essentially tried to create the soundtrack to a party that we would want to go nuts at.”
‘Hi Viz’ (tracklist below) is out on Friday May 18.
