Deaf Havana Release Heartfelt Track "Nevermind", new album "The Present Is A Foreign Land" available for pre-sale

 Pop/rock outfit Deaf Havana have today released an incredibly heartfelt and honest song, in the form of "Nevermind". The stripped-back track showcases the more vulnerable side of frontman James Veck-Gilodi’s song-writing prowess. The track is off their upcoming album The Present Is A Foreign Land, due out July 15th, and available for pre-order now. The single follows previous songs "Going Clear", which reached the Top 100 in the German radio charts, and "On The Wire", currently in the Top 200.

James explains of the track, “Nevermind is the second song we wrote for The Present is a Foreign Land and it is maybe my favourite on the record. This song is about the back end of 2019/first few months of 2020, which was pretty much the lowest point of my life to date. I tried to channel that emotion into the vocals when I recorded it. We tried to keep it simple on this with mainly keys, guitar and strings to really let the lyrics come through. This one means a hell of a lot to me so I really hope people connect with it!”

Deaf Havana headlined the Rock Sound stage at Slam Dunk Festival earlier this month, to a packed out crowd. The band will headline their second festival of the year, at Burn It Down Festival in Torquay, on Saturday 3rd September. The pair were invited by Don Broco to support them at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall in March, on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust and shortly before this, the duo made a triumphant return to the stage at a sold out intimate show at Lafayette in London.

In 2020, Deaf Havana were ready to go their separate ways after a decade together, but then the pandemic hit and they had no choice but to stop. Despite the band making the tough decision to call it a day, Matty continued to write songs and it was this that brought him and brother James back together after a turbulent few months. The two-piece decided to continue as Deaf Havana, and holed themselves up in a studio in Hastings with producer Mike Horner (Hot Chip, Jess Glynne, YONAKA and more). The result is The Present Is A Foreign Land; a mature and accomplished body of work. The 12-track album will consist of previously released singles, "On The Wire", "Kids" and "Going Clear".

Deaf Havana have risen through the ranks during their time as a band, earning themselves coveted accolades including three Top 10 albums in the Official Charts with Rituals, All These Countless Nights, and Old Souls. 2018 saw them play their biggest headline show to date at Brixton Academy, alongside appearances at festivals such as Reading & Leeds, Mad Cool and Pukkelpop. Since then, Deaf Havana have played a sold out German headline tour, their biggest UK headline tour and their debut festival headline slot, at 2000 Trees.
