Indie rock band flor has been having a great year. Fresh off a headlining UK/EU tour that saw them playing for sold-out crowds across the pond, flor has finally announced the release date of their long-awaited (and much anticipated) sophomore record, ley lines: September 6. The band celebrates this announcement with the release of the third single (and title track) off the album, “ley lines”. Listen below.

Despite being signed to a label, ley lines is entirely self-produced by vocalist Zach Grace and bassist Dylan Bauld. Working out of Bauld’s home studio in Los Angeles, the duo crafted the album between several writing sessions with guitarist McKinley Kitts and drummer Kyle Hill.

“We’ve gotten where we are by following our instincts, so when we started to record the album, it was important for me to believe in myself and our band,” shared singer/guitarist Zach Grace. “Ley lines are these pathways that connect places of power. I was drawn to the idea of these anchor points creating a route: this defining of a journey, and this strengthening through connection. The more we’re able to connect these anchors, the more we can trust ourselves, be unshakeable, and find happiness, regardless of the push and pull of the world around us.”

“When we started out, we recorded everything ourselves purely out of necessity, but as we discussed bringing in collaborators, or working out of a big recording studio for the new record, it just didn’t feel natural. Zach and I making music in my living room, with the addition of McKinley and Kyle’s musicianship is the sound of flor,” added Dylan Bauld.

ley lines, the band’s sophomore album, will be out September 6, just in time for tour. See the full tracklisting below, along with their previously announced Ones To Watch tour dates. The record is available for pre-order here.
