Leeds band Higher Power have signed to Roadrunner Records, and they'll release their new album 27 Miles Underwater on January 24 via their new label home. The album was produced by veteran alt-rock producer Gil Norton and the first single is "Seamless," which starts out sounding like real-deal hardcore, but turns into a soaring chorus that sounds like it could've been on the radio in the '90s. Vocalist Jimmy Wizard says, "’Seamless’ was one of the last songs we wrote for the record. It came together so naturally, we knew from the moment we wrote it that it was going to be the first song we release. It perfectly encapsulates everything the record is about in a short catchy heavy song." Listen and check out the tracklist below.

As mentioned, Higher Power are coming to the US to play Back To School Jam at Jersey City's White Eagle Hall this Saturday (9/7) (tickets), and then touring with Vein and Soft Kill, including a Brooklyn show on October 10 at Brooklyn Bazaar with additional support from Silenus (tickets). All dates are listed below.

Speaking of Soft Kill, they just released a split with Portrayal of Guilt on Closed Casket Activities earlier this week, and now they've announced that they signed to Closed Casket Activities as well. Maybe a new album is in the works? Stay tuned.
