‘A Celebration Of Endings’ will now arrive on August 14 instead of May 15 as originally planned. “With all of the turmoil and anxiety that the coronavirus situation is causing everyone’s lives, we decided that it would have felt wrong to have continued with our original release plan,” a statement from the band reads.

“Music is of course important, but there are bigger issues at stake right now. We know that many of you will be as disappointed as we are, but we feel this is the right thing to do.”
To console fans the band have organised a Facebook Live today (March 27) at 6pm GMT where lead vocalist/guitarist Simon Neil will perform songs.
