Mice On Stilts are excited to announce the release of their debut album 'Hope For A Mourning' out today.

This 7-piece collaboration traverse genre distinctions to create their own unique sound -  described by one reviewer as “a sombre, subtle and slow-to-grow opus that virtually exudes a cinematic aura others of their kind often only allude to.”
 
The 2013 debut EP, An Ocean Held Me was met with high praise from listeners and reviewers alike. Founded on ideas of darkness, empathy and catharsis, these themes extend into their forthcoming coming album, Hope For A Mourning, which capitalises on the diverse range of instruments mastered by these seven skilled musicians.

Lead single 'Khandallah' is a great example of the band's ability to conjure eerie ambient soundscapes building to transcendental heights.
 
Lauded for their stirring presence as a live band, Mice On Stilts have reached beyond the confines of music and collaborated with local artists, photographers, writers and designers to create an art book to accompany the new album, the contents within a direct response to the engaging lyrics and emotional scope of Hope For a Mourning.
