Sad Boys Club have announced their debut album, ‘Lullabies From The Lightning Tree’.

The band’s first full-length, it will be released on 5th May via Modern Sky, preceded by new single ‘To Heal Without a Scar (Is a Waste Of a Good Wound)’ and accompanied by a UK tour.

Speaking about the new single, vocalist Jacob Wheldon says: “Sometimes I can have a hard time acknowledging life as reality, maybe I just don’t want to. It often results in bad consequences for myself and those around me which I then use songs to somehow justify – some might argue that makes me a toxic narcissist (/man), I’m not sure I’d disagree. I’m working on it. A lot of this album is about working on whatever ‘it’ is. Getting better? It fell out at the end of a particularly bad period of writer’s block and unblocked a majority of the writing on the record so feels like the only place to begin.”

The full tracklisting reads:

The Cracking Song
To Heal Without a Scar (Is a Waste Of a Good Wound)
Coffee Shop
Something Else
Cemetery Song, 20/5
(You’re) All I Ever Wanna Do
