English emo-rock group Basement have announced that their sophomore full length for Run For Cover Records, ‘Colourmeinkindness’, due out 22ND October 2012.
This will be their last record before an indefinite hiatus. It is the follow-up to 2011's critically acclaimed LP, I Wish I Could Stay Here.
Basement spent much of 2012 touring the UK, mainland Europe and Australia, all the while writing their new album.
Colourmeinkindness was tracked earlier this summer with Sam Pura (The Story So Far, Sabertooth Zombie, The Waiting Room Sessions) before performing at Sound & Fury Festival in Santa Barbara, CA and embarking on a US tour with Dead End Path, Daylight and Soul Search.
The band released the following statement about their indefinite hiatus; "Now Colourmeinkindness is finished, we head out to play a string of shows across America. Due to a number of personal commitments, this record and these shows will be the last thing we do as a band for a very long time.
"Basement has never been about achieving anything; it was simply an enjoyable outlet for creativity and emotion. That being said, we are incredibly grateful for the support we have received over the last two years.
"We have managed to do some amazing things and see some incredible places and the people we have met along the way will be our friends forever. We seriously cannot express sufficiently how much this means to us.
"We all have things going on outside of the band that require a lot of time and attention and now more than ever these things have to come first.
"There will be a last show and information will be released shortly.
Thank you for everything,
See you soon.
Alex, Andrew, Duncan, James and Ronan."
In conjunction with the album & the band has announced two final shows:
November 16th Leeds The Well
November 17th London Underworld
