Ducking Punches released their latest single ‘Distant Shadows’ last week that’s already an instant hit with fans. The track, released via Xtra Mile Recordings is composed of outstanding vocals unique to singer Dan Allen, rhythmic drumming and a guitar complimenting every instrument, Ducking Punches are staying true to their music while pushing the boat out into a harder, heavier tone that’s bound to show in their upcoming album. It’s a track really brought to life by the depth of the bass holding the rhythm and tying together each instrument. ‘Distant Shadows’ comes from their upcoming album, Alamort due to be released February 16th.

“Distant Shadows is about drifting apart from friends through a lack of trying and a lack of common ground. It focuses on how fickle friendships are not healthy to have in your life. The title is a play on words, taking the line from Horace, and twisting the meaning.”
Tracked and mixed at the same recording studio as ‘Smoking Spot’ and ‘Sobriety,’ Ducking Punches have taken it a step further to be mastered at Sonic Iguana Stdui by punk-rocker Mass Giorgini known for work with Anti-Flag and Rise Against.
Alamort is set to be launched at London’s The Lexington followed by a hometown show at The Arts Centre in Norwich the following day. Not only that, but Ducking Punches have announced that a tour will be following with venues across Wales, Scotland and England as follows: TOUR DATES 2018
