After months of teasing fans with snippets of new material, Josh Pyke today announced the release of his fifth studio album, But For All These Shrinking Hearts available on July 31. Pyke gave his fans the first real taste of the album this morning, circulating a fans-first video across his social media accounts for album track, There’s A Line, alongside a live link to pre-order the new album.
Always looking out for his fans, Pyke has also released an extremely limited number of fans-first album pre-order packages comprising the deluxe edition of the new record featuring two exclusive tracks, a collectors lyric magnet set and a ticket to one of his intimate fans first shows in Sydney at The Soda Factory on July 29, Melbourne at Bella Union on August 5, Adelaide at Grace Emily on August 6 and Brisbane at The Foundry on August 12. These shows will not be ticketed and are only available to those who pre-order the But For All These Shrinking Hearts package.
“I’ve loved doing the fans first gigs in the past, and this round is no different, so make sure you sign up to my mailing list for first dibs on those tix at www.joshpyke.com,” explains Pyke.
Honouring his fans by sharing the title and release date of his anticipated new album, and a fans-first video via social media channels, Pyke said, “Writing and making this record has been one of the most pleasurable and creatively challenging things I’ve done, and I bloody well love the end result. After the making of the record, it’s pretty much up to you guys whether it travels and is shared and becomes part of peoples lives, so please share the news, the music, your thoughts. As always I owe any kind of continued success to you all, so thank you!”
The first official single, Hollering Hearts will be serviced to media on June 8.
