Nick Noble, founder of 93millionmilesfromthesun, is no newcomer to the shoegaze scene. He started writing in 2007 and since that time has established a distinct sound that incorporates all the hazy, reverberating, chorus sounds of this genre.
With seven LPs, 15 EPs and two singles under his belt, he is releasing his eighth full-length album on Friday, April 23 on Bandcamp. It will be available in digital and CD formats. With only 100 copies of the limited edition CD available, fans should plan on preordering now.
The new album, entitled “Why Do We Fall Apart,” explores a theme that many of us can relate to: what it’s been like to survive in a pandemic that forced people to stay apart, lose jobs, get sick, lose loved ones, and a general negative impact on mental health. Located in Doncaster, England, the musician wrote and recorded all 11 songs by himself in his home studio.
While it is not usual for him to do most of the writing himself due to the fact that bandmates Jase Burns (drums) and Kenno (real name Andrew Kennovan, bass) are spread apart, making it hard to get together, they have collaborated recording parts independently and sending them back and forth on other albums.
Fans got a taste of the new album June 20, 2020, when Noble played a set of four songs as part of DKFM Shoegaze Radio’s worldwide streaming shoegaze festival. For those who missed it, you can view the archive here:
That marked the premiere of the first single from the new album called “All I Am Now.” A recorded version of four-song DKFM session is available on the Bandcamp page.
On Thursday, April 22, Noble is being interviewed about the new album on DKFM’s The Velvet Hum Radio Show, which airs at 10 p.m. EDT at www.decayfm.com. That show will also premiere the song “If You Wonder.” DKFM blogger Marky Anderson will also have a review of the album on the DKFM website by its release April 23.
