Jim Lockley & The Solemn Sun have announced that they have re-signed to independent label Xtra Mile Recordings. Making a return to their old label after almost ten years, the confirmation of the new deal arrives with the promise that a new Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun album is due later this year. The announcement also comes as the band’s 2012 breakthrough album, Death, is honoured as Xtra Mile RecordingsAlbum of the Month for March.

We are proud to return to the XMR family to release our new album. After a decade away exploring different projects we’re back doing what we love — making honest records and creating the best live show we can offer. The new album is the perfect example of this; an all-out live show crammed into an album. It’s been a hugely cathartic process for me personally and I feel it represents our band perfectly. We can’t wait for people to hear what we’ve been working on. We also get to kick off our return by revisiting the album that started it all. ‘Death’ opened so many doors, took us part-way round the world and introduced us to incredible artists and fans. We owe so much to that record and to the XMR team for taking the album from a few assembled songs to chart positions, Radio 1 and SXSW. We’ve loved the opportunity to remember this album and to mark the occasion with fresh artwork.” (Jim Lockley)
