Canterbury, Kent’s Moose Blood have revealed details for their brand new, upcoming album, I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore, which will be released on March 9, 2018 on Hopeless Records. I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore is the band’s follow-up to 2016’s Blush and dives into the most complex emotional territory they’ve ever explored.
Last week, the band teased their new single, “Talk In Your Sleep”, by providing the sheet music to fans. Moose Blood has released the studio version and music video for the track. The song premiered on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter.
“There’s almost a circularity to this album when placed next to our first two,” notes lead guitarist Mark Osborne. “The first is full of songs written by enthusiastic, excited kids who just wanted to get their music out there. ‘Blush’ was more about struggling with some of what came along with that change of lifestyle and ‘I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore’ is really us trying to work through some of what has happened in our lives as a result of doing this band full time.”
The new songs examine growing up and learning to become a man, about facing tribulations and coming out stronger on the other side, about tackling what ails you head on, no matter how insurmountable it might seem. Even more than that though, it is comprehensively Moose Blood’s most sonically complete and accomplished body of work to date.
In an era where a majority of musicians seem to view writing good songs as low down the list of attributes required for a successful career, Canterbury quartet Moose Blood are that rarest of things: a band who let the songs do the talking.
I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore is now available for pre-order here.
