Delayed Departure


Delayed Departure

Farnborough based Delayed Departure have just announced that their 3rd EP entitled ‘Your Colours’ will be released on the 19th October, and the first single ‘Neon Lights’ being unleashed on the 7th September.

The writing and recording of ‘Your Colours’ saw the band pulling on personal experiences and exploring issues that have affected their lives. A serious step up in both style and substance, Delayed Departure’s 3rd EP is destined to be the launchpad for their career with a sound that sits alongside other UK talent such as You Me At Six, Deaf Havana & Mallory Knox.

Vocalist Mike explains a bit about Delayed Departures roots:

“We originate from the South Eastern town of Farnborough, a town with nothing much to shout about, so we want to be one of the reasons the town gets recognised. With the limits growing up in a small town brings, we wanted to pay homage to its simplicity while venturing out. exploring more ideas and concepts that perhaps we would have taken for granted living in a bigger city. We’re just a group of close friends who enjoy making music, and are amazed every day when people tell us how much they love what we are doing!”

About Delayed Departure

Delayed Departure are a rock band from Farnborough. Originally four school-mates just enjoying playing covers, they quickly became a quintet and started writing their own material. With two EP’s under their belt, the debut “Crafted” saw the band formulating who they were as a band and in 2016 the huge ‘Consequences’ EP took the band from small-town heroes to a wider audience.  

Mike, Charlie, Jamie, Ollie and Steven are striving to always write and record something better than before, their 2018 EP ‘Your Colours’ is the bands best work to date, drawing on experiences in their daily lives, this new material will speak to people on many personal levels.  If Delayed Departure are fresh on your radar, you will come for the story – and stay for the show!

Delayed Departure are:

Mike Harland: Vocalist
Charlie Bluck: Guitarist
Jamie Hooks: Guitarist
Ollie Drapper: Bass Guitarist
Steven Kedge: Drummer

Delayed Departure have just released a brand new single and video for ‘Neon Lights’. The track is taken from their upcoming EP ‘Your Colours’, which is being released on the 19th October 2018.
Vocalist Mike details the inspiration for the new single ‘Neon Lights’:

Essentially, this was about a particular night where we all went out as a band and I had that sort of drunken hallucinogenic vision where we felt invincible and unstoppable. The longevity of the night was at the expense of the bright neon lights that were around us, every time I felt as though the night was drawing to a close the lights seemed to get brighter and almost like a moth to a flame drew me back in.

Neon Lights is available to purchase on iTunes right now, you can also get it instantly by pre-ordering the new EP Your Colours.
