Villagers are to release ‘Nothing Arrived’ as the second single from their upcoming LP, {Awayland}, on the same day as the album – 11th January 2013. (The album will be released on 9th April 2013 in the US).

Nothing Arrived is a song of epic proportions and of much beauty, showcasing another side to the band’s multi-faceted, highly anticipated forthcoming album. The accompanying video, directed by Alden Volney (who also made the video for the previous single, The Waves), documents a day in the life of one Terrence Bliss – a lonely office worker whose repetitive existence is momentarily disturbed.

{Awayland} was produced and mixed at Attica Audio in Donegal by Conor J. O’Brien and Villagers’ guitarist Tommy McLaughlin, and is the follow-up to the band’s Mercury Award-nominated and Ivor Novello-winning debut, Becoming a Jackal. Villagers have just completed a UK and European tour as special guests to Grizzly Bear, as well as a handful of headline dates both here and in London.

Villagers will be headlining an Irish tour next March.
