The Irish Indie darlings are back with their seventh LP
Bell X1 have announce the release of their new album Arms, which will be out on October 14.
Recorded in Dublin and Donegal, this will be their 7th studio album and the follow up to 2013’s much acclaimed Chop Chop, which was their third Number 1, and their fourth consecutive album to be nominated for a Choice Music Prize.
“As the world feels like it’s becoming a harsher place (maybe there’s just more damn noise?), we seek out the comfort of the familiar and familial…arms,” says guitarist Paul Noonan.
Arms is a nine-song collection radiating with shabby grace and soft-focus elegance, but there’s also a bruised, bittersweet, romantic mood throughout. Melancholic and lovelorn in places but also spirited, determined and optimistic which speaks volumes about how the band has grown sonically over their storied career.
Produced by the band and recorded in Dublin and Donegal by Tommy McLoughlin (from the Villagers) and Glenn Keating (from Jape), ARMS was mixed by Peter Katis (The National, Jónsi) with Ross Dowling mixing the song “Out of Love.”
