The Band in Heaven’s full length debut Caught in a Summer Swell is set to come out next Tuesday, September 17th. In advance of the release date, the group has shared the single “Fairweather Friends” which can be streamed below. They will also be performing a handful of tour dates in their home state of Florida along with a stop at CMJ in New York City.

In the thick of a sweat-soaked, sun burnt Floridian summer, West Palm Beach’s The Band in Heaven have finished their debut full-length record, Caught in a Summer Swell, slated for release on Decades Records, a boutique South Florida label. They will also release the album on cassette with Cheap Miami. The album is out next Tuesday, September 17.

Today The Band in Heaven debuts a new single from their upcoming album. ‘Fairweather Friends’ is about that unique bond that exists between the band and the crowd for 30-40 minute window, sharing spit and sweat, and the stockholm syndrome-like effect that lingers with the band after the fans and friends have all gone.
