PJ Harvey's The Hope Six Demolition Project Scores GRAMMY Nomination

Following on from the Mercury Prize winning album Let England Shake, PJ Harvey returned this year with a new record documenting a unique artistic journey, which took her to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, D.C. The album was recorded during her month long residency at Somerset House, “Recording in Progress”, in which audiences were given the opportunity to see Harvey at work with her band and producers in a purpose-built studio. The Hope Six Demolition Project reached #1 on the UK charts and she returned to the US for sold out shows in Los Angeles and New York.



PJ's nomination for Best Alternative Music Album is her 7th GRAMMY® nomination and her first in 12 years!

Balance and Composure Share New Video for "Afterparty"

Balance and Composure have partnered with Clash Magazine to release the highly-anticipated video for “Afterparty,” the second single from their forthcoming new album Light We Made. “Afterparty” is the sister video to “Postcard,” which premiered previously on Pitchfork. The two videos take Balance and Composure fans through a hallucinogenic safari – the first video is the band within a mind-altering, psychedelic realm, and the second video picks up where the band starts to wake up from their trip.





Both “Postcard” and “Afterparty” appear on Light We Made which is set for release this Friday, October 7th. Balance and Composure will celebrate the release of Light We Made with a pair of intimate CD release shows. Boot and Saddle will host the Philadelphia gathering on Friday, October 7th while Rough Trade NYC will congregate on Saturday, October 8th. The former sold it in less than a few hours and fans who purchase the new album at Rough Trade in Brooklyn will be treated to a full set on Saturday afternoon at 2 PM.

Additionally, as a thank you to fans who purchase an LP or CD of Light We Made, Balance and Composure have supplied a handful of independent record stores across the United States with a free, limited-edition “Postcard” 7” featuring an exclusive, non-album b-side track called “Revelation” (while supplies last).
