Spector announce new album and an accompanying UK tour


Spector have announced a brand new album alongside a nationwide tour. Dev Hynes has co-produced the band’s second record, entitled Moth Boys, which is out on 21st August.

The album artwork is formed of a picture of defunct Berlin nightclub Rechenzentrum from Von Bleiben – a series of photographs documenting the ‘morning after’ by German artists André Giesemann and Daniel Schulz.

We got very excited when we first saw André and Daniel’s photo as it immediately evoked similar feelings to the music and words on the record – we’re very honoured that they’ve let us use it,” frontman Fred Macpherson said.

Moth Boys includes the singles ‘All The Sad Young Men’ and ‘Bad Boyfriend’ as well as ‘Cocktail Party’ whih Hynes co-wrote. The band’s debut album Enjoy It While It Lasts was released back in 2012, reaching number 12 in the charts.
