The Ninth Wave Releases New Song “Hard Not to Hold You”
- Glasgow-based electro-pop band The Ninth Wave, consisting of Haydn Park-Patterson (guitar, vocals), Millie Kidd (bass, vocals), Kyalo Searle-Mbullu (keys) and Calum Stewart (drums), released a new song “Hard Not to Hold You” along with a montage video on February 25, 2022.
The song is the fifth single off of their upcoming sophomore album “Heavy Like a Headache”, following “What Makes You A Man”, “Piece and Pound Coins”, “Maybe You Didn't Know” and “Everything Will Be Fine”.
The track was written by Calum Stewart, Haydn Park-Patterson, Amelia Kidd, Kyalo Searle-Mbullu, and Calum Stewart.
The Ninth Wave shared on social media, “This is the last one before the release of our second album, Heavy Like A Headache, in March. I know we've already said, but seriously, the outpouring of love over the last day has been a bit lump-in-throat inducing. It's been so nice to see you all sharing memories of gigs from the last few years - a brief respite from the state of the world rn! Much love to ya all, can't wait to play this one at our last shows in March ❤️”
The new album is set to be released on March 18, 2022.
But the band will break up after the release of the album.
- The band said in a statement, “Hello! We are so so so excited to release our second album. We love it a lot and we hope you do too. We poured a lot of love, effort and emotion into it and we couldn't be prouder of the end result. It's our strongest body of songs without a doubt. Hope you're ready for it!
On a sad but also happy note, we've decided that after this album is out and after the three celebration gigs in March, we're gonna take an extended break from The Ninth Wave. That means these gigs in March will be our last as a band for a long time (maybe ever!).
We are all still best of pals and love what we have created together. However, we've been going full pelt for the last six years and we feel like it's time to give the band a breather. We also all have other projects that we're keen to explore and taking a breather from the band will give us all the opportunity to do that. The Ninth Wave has given us some of the best times and we've met some of the loveliest people we've known throughout it all.
So, these gigs in March are going to be extremely fucking special celebrations. There'll be laugh, tears, cuddles, dancing, the whole bloody lot. We're going to be playing a bunch of songs from the new album, as well as a load of the family favourites and GrEaTeSt HiTz. You absolutely CANNOT miss out, imagine the regret oh my god!!! The tour that we did at the end of 2021 reminded us of how much we fucking love playing live and seeing every one of you going for it and feeling the same feelings as us is something special.
Love to you all and we hope you love Heavy Like a Headache as much as we do. See you in March for one last dance.”
