Today, Pale Waves return with the new singleLies’ – the first to be taken from their third album ‘Unwanted,’ announced today and set for release on Friday, 12th August via Dirty Hit.

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Zakk Cervini, whose credits read like a who’s who of alt royalty – from Blink-182 and Modern Baseball, to Halsey and Machine Gun Kelly – ‘Lies’ pairs the crunchy guitars and rhythmic drive of 2000s pop punk with the rage of a 90s rock band.

“‘Lies’ is about someone who built up my trust and destroyed it like a wrecking ball,” says frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie“it caused some real trust issues, but fortunately for me that person is no longer in my life. Once you do me wrong you’re gone!”

Pale Waves have been on a personal and artistic journey since the release of their debut albumMy Mind Makes Noises‘ in 2018. These experiences have begun to inform their songs in recent years and are what jump to the fore on ‘Unwanted.’ “It was really the only thing this album could be called,” says Baron-Gracie, now 27. “It’s bold and unapologetic, and that’s what the Pale Waves community is about. We don’t need to fit a perfect mould, we don’t need to apologise for being ourselves, and we won’t change for anyone. That acceptance is what connects us.” ‘Unwanted’ is a record that reaches out into the passionate community of misfits and LGBTQI fans around the band, tapping into darker emotions than ever before while also striking a fresh tone of defiance.

The band have also announced a UK headline tour for November 2022, culminating with a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on Wednesday 30th November. The tour follows a packed summer of UK festival appearances, including Neighbourhood Weekender, Community Festival, Y-Not, Kendal Calling, Boardmasters and Reading & Leeds. Tickets will be available via fan pre-sale at 10am on 18th May, and on general sale from 10am on 20th May.
