Croydon-based sludge pop/alt-rock four piece, Bellevue Day have announced the release of their new EP Rosehill on July 4th. Along with the news, the band has also revealed a video for "Secret Love" which can be viewed below.
"Each song is based on a few very significant events in each of our lives," comments the band on the new EP. "Without which we highly doubt the songs would have even come about. We’ve drawn from some of the more shitty times in our lives, whether it be over-indulging on booze, drugs or religion - it's a reflection on, and homage to, our youth."
Rosehill is a record built from defining moments in young lives, but it's also a look at the departure of youth and the ever-increasing complexities of modern adult life. It's relatable, personal and has a certain simplicity that listeners will be sure to relate to. Bellevue Day demonstrate a sound of an already talented band that has already mastered their craft.
The band saw a huge dose of support last year, gaining press from Kerrang! Magazine, Rock Sound, DIY, Upset and Dork. Their previous single "Ripped Jeans" was selected as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in The World on Beats 1, and spending six weeks on the Kerrang! Radio playlist, with further spins at BBC Radio 1, Radio X, BBC Introducing, and many more specialist shows.
The band will be appearing at several festivals this summer before hitting the road for a run of August UK tour dates with Patrons, and another run of October UK dates with The Young Hearts.
