The track that lived at the top of the hype machine and threw Prides into our lives is finally getting a release date. Out of the Blue is being released on December 8th.

This follows on from the success of the three previous singles and stadium sounding anthems, I Should Know You Better, The Seeds You Sow and Messiah, Prides are now set to release a fourth infectious single.

Singer, Stewart Brock says, ‘Lyrically it’s inspired by Fleetwood Mac’s Big Love. I saw an interview with Lindsay Buckingham who said that Big Love wasn’t about looking for love, it was about looking out for love, guarding against it. I thought that was a really interesting idea, and that’s how I approached Out of the Blue.

The video was our most ambitious to date. We really wanted to portray the excitement of a live show, as well as live up to the grandeur of the song. It was great fun to film, and it’s full of all our most ridiculous ideas. It’s a fire-breathing, falcon-catching, knife-juggling, bottle-smashing, sweaty, flare-filled beast, and of course, everything is blue’

Prides can now be heard on the Radio 1 In New Music We Trust – and all around the country on their upcoming headline tour dates, which include:

Friday, 17 October – The Kazimier, Liverpool
Monday, 20 October – Brudenell Social Club. Leeds

Wednesday, 22 October – The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham
Thursday, 23 October – The Barfly, London – SOLD OUT
Friday, 24 October – The Old Bookshop, Bristol – SOLD OUT

An addictive, dazzling track, electrifying live shows and a band with a voice, Prides are clearly a force to be reckoned with.
