Former Scottish Album of the Year nominees The Ninth Wave will embark on a UK-wide tour this October. Tickets are on general sale now.
The tour comes as the band release their latest single 'Maybe You Didn't Know', a swirling piece of pop electronica that marks their most exciting music to date.
Singer-songwriter Hadyn Park-Patterson says, 'The song is about finding comfort in the uncomfortable and being able to hide yourself behind an overbearing and engulfing undefined fear.
'The first verse of the song comes from daydreaming. I was out walking on a day that the rain that had been unrelenting until it briefly subsided and made it possible to get out and go for a wander. I was staring at a burn that was flowing much more forcefully than it usually would. The frantic and panicked movement of the water reminded me of a time that I was in the middle of a fox-hunting-sabotage.
'Standing in the middle of the road with my eyes and thoughts lost in the babble of the water, I couldn't help but feel an affinity with the fox as I imagined the burn bursting its banks and the water gushing out and striking me up off of the ground.
'The feeling of fear and contentment about this situation were in equilibrium.'
The tour was previously planned for 2020, but was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Tickets for the original dates remain valid.
