Following the announcement of their long-awaited third album, “The Ceiling”, Birmingham dream-pop group JAWS have shared a new single from the record entitled “FEAR”.

Their third and most ambitious album yet, “The Ceiling” (out April 5th, 2019), sees the band head back into the studio with Gethin Pearson, who also produced 2016’s “Simplicity”. The album represents another musical leap forward for the band, adding new textures and further honing a sound that has been theirs since their inception.

FEAR” follows the bands latest single ‘Do You Remember?’ and their propulsive 2018 single and album opener “Driving At Night”, both of which earned plaudits from the likes of DIY, who described it as “A striking introduction to their third full-length”, as well as receiving praise from The Line of Best Fit, Clash, Paste, Dork, Gigwise and featuring in Hype Machine’s 10 most popular music video charts.

Frontman and guitarist Connor Schofield has the following to say about the new album and single:

“Lyrically “The Ceiling” is generally about feeling a bit lost, I think as you grow up everything feels like it’s moving along a lot quicker; friends, relationships, life can all seem to move at 100 mph. Sometimes we forget that it’s OK to stand still for a bit sometimes and actually breathe. A lot of these songs are about dealing with that. Musically I think we’ve surprised even ourselves with it, we’ve gone down paths we haven’t taken before and ended up with something we’re really very excited about.

“FEAR” really pushed us out of our comfort zone in the best way possible. It was sort of the wake-up call that we could take this record in any direction we want and still be confident with it. I think it might be my favorite song that we’ve ever put together, not only musically but for how it opened the door to write the rest of the record. The song is about fight or flight, trying to live via love rather than fear.”

As well as the new album, JAWS also announce a UK tour for April.
