The Ninth Wave have dropped their new album, ‘Heavy Like A Headache’.

The band’s second album, last month they announced that following its arrival, they’d go on an extended break.

A statement from the band read: “Hello! We are so so so excited to release our second album. We love it a lot and we hope you do too. We poured a lot of love, effort and emotion in to it and we couldn’t be prouder of the end result. It’s our strongest body of songs without a doubt. Hope you’re ready for it!

On a sad but also happy note, we’ve decided that after this album is out and after the three celebration gigs in March, we’re gonna take an extended break from The Ninth Wave. That means that these gigs in March will be our last as a band for a long time (maybe ever!),

We are all still best of pals and love what we have created together. However, we’ve been going full pelt for the last six years and we feel like it’s time to give the band a breather. We also all have other projects that we’re keen to explore and taking a breather from the band will give us all the opportunity to do that. The Ninth Wave has given us some of the best times and we’ve met some of the loveliest people we’ve known throughout it all.

So, these gigs in March are going to be extremely fucking special celebrations. There’ll be laughs, tears, cuddles, dancing, the whole bloody lot. We’re going to be playing a bunch of songs from the new album, as well as a load of the family favourites and greatest hits. You absolutely cannot miss out, imagine the regret oh my god!!!! The tour that we did at the end of 2021 reminded us of how much we fucking love playing live and seeing every one of you going for it and feeling the same feelings as us is something special.

Love to you all and we hope you love ‘Heavy Like a Headache’ as much as we do. See you in March for one last dance.”

The Ninth Wave will play the last of those shows at Glasgow’s SWG3 on Saturday, 19th March.
