The album was about to release on July 10 release, however, the band will now release the record on August 7.
Glass Animals shared a written photo on Instagram, they mentioned, “As some of you may have worked out, a few weeks ago we were supposed to release one of the main singles from album 3.”
“The deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery horrified us to our core… and the despicable responses to police brutality and the hideous behaviour of extremists that followed were completely heartbreaking,” they explained.
“it couldn’t have felt more like the wrong time” They more added, “All eyes and minds needed to be focused on civil rights and understanding how to defeat prejudice, and we made the decision to pause our album release plan indefinitely.
“fight for civil rights is so much bigger and more important than any single piece of music”, and that while they’ll be releasing new music soon, they will “never take [their] eyes off of that ultimate goal”.
