Belgian indie-pop band Balthazar share opening track and video from upcoming LP, announce European tour dates


Balthazar are pleased to announce their return with news of the forthcoming album Fever that will be released on January, 25th, 2019 via Play It Again Sam [PIAS]. Alongside this news, they have shared the album’s title track and accompanying video.

It’s clear from the opening notes of the album’s first and title track, “Fever” that the five-piece have changed, not least due to their individual musical pursuits over the past few years. Opening with a rolling languid bass riff, “Fever” unfurls into a slinky sunset jam, a swooping string motif adding drama to the funky bustle that fanfares Balthazar into new territory with their fourth album; honest, playful and underpinned with a carefree abandon from two extraordinary songwriters.

Following the band’s self-imposed hiatus, a break that saw frontmen and writing partners Jinte Deprez and Maarten Devoldere pursuing different individual interests from both a personal and creative perspective that has ultimately led the band to fashion their most cohesive album to date. Meanwhile the band will embark on an extensive European tour in 2019.
