Sad Boys Club also announce new headline tour of EU and UK set for spring 2023.

London alt-rock band Sad Boys Club have announced their debut album Lullabies From The Lightning Tree will be released May 5th via Modern Sky. Today the band have also announced new EU and UK tours for the spring and shared the album’s lead single and its accompanying video ‘To Heal Without a Scar (Is a Waste Of a Good Wound).’

Produced and mixed by the band’s bassist, Pedro Caetano, the lead single is an emotionally charged and intense track about life and the consequences that follow one’s decisions.

Speaking on the lyrical inspiration behind the new single, vocalist Jacob Wheldon said:

“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.”
