    Deluxe Edition Features 5 Additional Tracks!

    Twenty years after their debut Word Gets Around and six UK #1 albums later, Stereophonics are set to release their new album 'Scream Above The Sounds,' via Parlophone Records!

    Their tenth studio album, Scream Above The Sounds follows Keep The Village Alive which went straight to #1 in the UK when it was released in 2015 – their sixth UK chart-topper after Performance and Cocktails (1999), Just Enough Education To Perform (2001) You Gotta Go There To Come Back (2003), Language. Sex. Violence. Other? (2005) and Pull The Pin (2007).

    Stereophonics consists of founding members Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar) and Richard Jones (bass) along with Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums). Long-term keyboardist Tony Kirkham joins the band for live shows.

    Kelly said of the songwriting process that he began to write "big, anthemic songs that are rallying against those anxious feelings that have flooded through cities. Every song offers a sense of release," he says. "Even when there's nostalgia, fear or anxiety, they're still all offering hope and room to manoeuvre."

    The first single All In One Night represents the band's affection for the melancholy. Set to a consistent mid-paced rhythm which evokes a nocturnal motorway drive, it finds the narrator's life taking a dramatic turn as night brightens to day. Influenced by the Sebastian Schipper film ‘Victoria', it's a song that had an unusual genesis – Kelly started it when the band had an unscheduled day's stay in China before he finished it back home in London. Even the atmospheric call of the chorus was fortuitous, being an adaptation of a vocal exercise he was using.

    Scream Above The Sounds was primarily recorded in the band's HQ in west London with a further session at RAK Studios.  Created with the help of regular collaborator Jim Lowe, it's an album in which creative sonic touches add to the band's emphasis on songwriting and melody.
