Honeyblood announce third album, In Plain Sight

By | Published on Friday 8 February 2019


Honeyblood’s third album, ‘In Plain Sight’, is set for release in May. The album will be the first with Honeyblood being a solo project for Stina Tweedale, following the departure from the outfit of drummer Cat Myers, who has been playing live with Mogwai since 2017.

“I started writing this at home on my own”, she says. “At first I felt like a bit of a loner, but once I got used to the cabin fever, I couldn’t turn back. This album felt like me being left to work out what felt like this giant puzzle on my own. All the songs fed into this idea of trickery and deception, of half truths”.

“Every move, every song, everything I was doing on this record was new territory”, she goes on. “I really didn’t know what was gonna happen. It was a big jump but a very eye-opening experience. I didn’t want to play off the same tricks I’d used before”.

‘In Plain Sight’ is out on 24 May and lead single, ‘The Third Degree’, is out now.
