Post-punk band Dry Cleaning have announced their new album ‘Stumpwork’.

The London based group have also unveiled the first single from the project – ‘Don’t Press Me’.

Short and sweet at under two minutes, lead vocalist Florence Shaw says of the track: “The words in the chorus came about because I was trying to write a song to sing to my own brain.”

The band have also released an animated video for the single which you can watch below.

‘Stumpwork’ is scheduled to be released on 21 October and is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2021 debut ‘New Long Leg’.

‘Stumpwork’ can be pre-ordered here.

Dry Cleaning, who were only formed in 2018, have received praise for their spoken word vocal style and forthright lyrics.

The band have also been compared to Manchester legends Joy Division.

They are also about to embark on a busy summer schedule of tour dates.

Tomorrow (16 June), the band are set to play Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh before performing at Glastonbury next weekend.

Dry Cleaning will also be playing All Points East in August in London as well as supporting The National at a gig in Manchester.

The band will also be performing at the US leg of Primavera in September.
