Having roped in The Flaming Lips to help out on recent single ‘Deflect The Light’, Vessels are back with another guest in tow. This time, John Grant joins them on ‘Erase The Tapes’.

“We were aiming to create a living, breathing human version of dance music”, say the band of the track. “And there isn’t really anything more honest and organic than the human voice. John Grant really inspired us to create something totally new”.

Listen to ‘Erase The Tapes’ here:

The song is taken from new album ‘The Great Distraction’, which is released this week. The title of the record is also something Grant had a hand in. “The title came from a misheard lyric that John Grant had written”, explains the band’s Martin Teff. “To us, it resonates in a few different ways. Personally, I like art that has a slower impact like that”.

With the new album out, the band will be heading out on tour later this week too. Here are the dates:

30 Sep: Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
3 Oct: Brighton, Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
4 Oct: London, Village Underground
5 Oct: Manchester, Soup Kitchen
6 Oct: Cardiff, Clwb Ifor Bach
7 Oct: Glasgow, Art School
