Bury Tomorrow will play a UK headline run in January 2024. “We are stoked to announce our first headline tour in the UK in support of our latest album, The Seventh Sun,” the band told us. “We have taken our new album all over the world in 2023 and cannot wait to bring it bigger, louder and more expansive than ever in Jan/Feb 2024 as we kick off the new year.
“We will be bringing Metalcore giants We Came As Romans and groundbreaking upstarts Kingdom Of Giants to support, and we could not be more excited to bring this show to you.
“Playing in venues we’ve not visited in years and cities we’ve longed to get back to, you do not want to miss out. Come join us on our next chapter.”
Tickets are on general sale from 27 September at 10 AM and will be available from here.
Two years ago, following a period of external and internal strife, there was a possibility that that would be it for the band. However, they regrouped, and the resulting album, The Seventh Sun, was released. It stands as a testament to the bonds and belief required to shape themselves into a new reality with a new sound and a new future.
The thematic threads weaved through The Seventh Sun are met in kind by a throughline that musically stitches together each of its 12 tracks – an idea that Kristan Dawson (guitar) has sought to execute for years.
“Every single song sets up the next part of the record,” Kristan said. “I wanted it to feel like one long body of work. I feel like I was musically at where Dan was at lyrically.”
All of this combines, as Winter-Bates says, to exhibit “the best version of Bury Tomorrow people will have heard.”
Positivity and possibility now seem boundless, whereas before, doubts persisted. “That is as much to do with Tom [Prendergast – keys/vocals] and Ed [Hartwell – guitar] joining the band as it is about the rest of us,” Kristan says. “I think we’d convinced ourselves at times that we weren’t friends when, actually, we’re family. You can’t have this sort of life experience and not be and not be as emotionally connected to each other as we are.”
As for the album title, The Seventh Sun, “there is something in the number seven that is very representative of change,” says. “There’s a renewal aspect to it – seven days in a week, seven hells, and so forth.
“And on our seventh album, that’s the case for us, too. I hope fans hear how much we appreciate the opportunity we have to make music for them. It’s an opportunity for us to showcase our love for, put our stamp on, and represent UK Metal.
“What a privilege that is for us, and we’re ready to prove that we’re doing everything for those right reasons.”
