The Great Distraction The Great Distraction The Great Distraction

Marketing Highlights

Leeds-based five piece Vessels are pleased to announce their fourth studio album, ’The Great Distraction,’ which is due to be released via Different Recordings. Featuring collaborations with The Flaming Lips, John Grant, Vincent Neff (Django Django) and Harkin (Sky Larkin).

The results stand tall amongst Vessels’ typically towering slow-burners as Wayne Coyne’s vocal soars towards the clouds on ”Deflect The Light,” Vincent Neff’s presence adds to the powerful dramatics of ”Trust Me,” and John Grant imbues ”Erase The Tapes” with characteristically austere beauty.

Where those collaborations embody the hallmark of a band pushing forward, it’s the unrelenting, hypnotic intensity of tracks like "Radiart" and the fragmented, complex beauty of "Radio Decay" that anchor Vessels’ essential evolution in core elements of their past.

In that respect, 'The Great Distraction' represents a band analyzing its own meaning and balancing the stark realities of life, death and aging with the explosive bursts of energy that have been a signature, albeit in different styles, across every album.

Vessels have received significant press support from The Fader, Stereogum, DIY, and The Line of Best Fit
