Saint Agnes to release debut album in May
Now this is a release we’ve been keenly anticipating for quite some time at Pure Rawk. Following on from their highly acclaimed “Death or Glory Gang” EP last year (Pure Rawk review here), Saint Agnes have announced that their long-awaited debut album “Welcome To Silvertown” will land on 3rd May.
In a statement, the band have said that “This is a moment we have been working towards for a long time. The support we have had over this last year in particular has been incredible and we are so excited to share this music with you in its full glory. This is the long form story we began with The Death Or Glory Gang EP.
Silvertown, East London is where the band formed. In a dingy flat we fantasised about the band we wanted to create, drinking cheap wine and trying not to freeze. To escape our somewhat inglorious surroundings, we created our own make believe version of Silvertown, a wild and dangerous place, a merciless backwater inhabited by dubious, but compelling, characters. In Silvertown you will find gods and villains, heroes and hustlers, witches and saints living unharmoniously alongside each other. Welcome to Silvertown, there’s no leaving Silvertown…”
If you’ve heard any of the band’s single releases to date, or seen their mesmerising live show, then you’ll know exactly why we’ve been waiting for this one so keenly. You can pre-order the album and stream the title track from the band’s official website, http://wearesaintagnes.com/.
