English pop-punk rock band Boston Manor have just released the first single from their forthcoming album, and it’s riddled with the tones of what else will follow on the 13 tracks that comprise GLUE.

The album which will be released on 1st May via Pure Noise Records is one that sees the band reach new heights in their examinations of the world and our modern constructions that, on a larger global scale, they want listeners to start recognising and paying attention to through hearing the songs.
The single, titled Everything is Ordinary, which was launched into the public earlier today, is one that front-man Henry Cox was inspired to write when he was assessing for himself the devastations of today’s society and that this song in particular “is about how we’re desensitised to all of these major, major problems that exist in the world today.”
The accompanying video clip for Everything is Ordinary takes a cinematic approach through a blinding light show that sweeps through the tracks unwavering fury as the instrumental progression charges through scaling verses, electronically infused choruses and the frustration that drives Cox’s vocals through harmonious interludes yet manages to pull us into the grips of his aforementioned analysis.
Though this is only Boston Manor’s third album, it’s one that fans will be able to recognise as a turning point for the band that have capably and impressively taken themselves to new depths that’ll see them soaring into the year ahead.
Recorded back at The Barber Shops studios in New Jersey where they produced their previous record, Welcome to The Neighbourhood, their 2020 album GLUE was engineered by Brett Romnes and produced by Mike Saphone and can be recognised as an album that Boston Manor are excited to release in the near future.
