As well as their exciting album release news, the Welsh rock-outfit have also today released their single Into The Trap. Set to appear on the band’s debut album, the swaggering and sultry track, “is a song about the unknown and the feelings of fear and resignation that come with facing up to it.” guitarist Mike Griffiths explains. “The melodramatic lyrics switch perspective to move with the music and create an atmosphere of uncertainty and dread.” Watch the lyric video here and below:

HIMALAYAS are gearing up to support Welsh-American rock band, No Devotion. They will join them on 26th January at Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach, and on 7th February at the Lexington in London.

Sharing a mutual love of Queens Of The Stone Age, Muse and Iggy Pop in their teenage years, Joe and guitarist Mike Griffiths started performing in small venues, and soon captured the attention of hungry fans and music industry tastemakers alike. Later joined by drummer James Goulbourn in 2015, they were completed by Louis Heaps on bass. HIMALAYAS started making their own unique blend of raucous fast-paced rock’n’roll music, which soon went on to earn them an extremely solid fanbase. The four-piece have been cutting their teeth on the live circuit ever since, playing highly-regarded festivals including SXSW and Reading & Leeds Festival, supported the likes of Stereophonics and Manic Street Preachers, and have played sold out headline shows in London and Cardiff.
