Background

Before the release of their second album Colourmeinkindness (2012), Basement announced a hiatus because of personal commitments.[1] Guitarist Alex Henery later revealed it was due to vocalist Andrew Fisher wishing to become a certified teacher which required him to return to school for a period of a year and a half.[2] Drummer James Fisher, Andrew's younger brother, was graduating from art school, and the rest of the members were working on their respective careers.[2] Henery, meanwhile, was working as a videographer in Boston, Massachusetts for record label Run for Cover.[3] In late January 2014, the group announced that they would be returning from their hiatus and would perform shows during the summer.[4][5] The band recorded an EP, Further Sky, in secret[2] before releasing it in July.[6]

Production

In August 2014, Henery revealed the group was writing material for a new album.[5] Although Henery was located in the US and the rest of the band was in the UK, they would send each other ideas.[7] The group managed to have a few practice sessions before composing the album.[7] Henry found it "a little tough", but the group managed to "it work".[7] The album's sound has been described as alternative rock,[8][9] compared to American bands such as Jimmy Eat World, Failure, and Soundgarden.[10] Henery later called the Autolux guitar pedal "the biggest influence" on the record as "they just had energy and had that distortion, but still had really cool melodies."[10] On 6 April 2015, the band posted they had begun recording[11] with producer Sam Pura.[12] Recording took place at Assault and Battery 2 in England, while mixing would later be done by Pura at the Panda Studios in California.[13] Brian Gardener mastered the recordings.[13]

Release

On 19 October 2015, Basement's third album, Promise Everything, was announced for release[14] and the artwork was revealed.[15] The artwork was done by R.V.[13] On 28 October, "Promise Everything" was made available for streaming[16] and was released as a single.[17] In October and November, the band supported The Story So Far.[18] On 10 December, "Oversized" was released as a single[19] and a music video was released for it.[20] A music video was released for "Aquasun" on 14 January 2016,[21] which was directed by Henery.[22] The song was released as a single on the same day,[23] and released to American radio a week later.[24] The album was made available for streaming on 22 January[25] and was released through Run for Cover on 29 January.[16][nb 1] In February and March, the band went on a UK and Europe tour. The tour, which featured Tigers Jaw and Alex G as support acts,[14] was the band's biggest tour so far.[26]

In April and May, the band went to on a US tour with support from Turnstile, Defeater and Colleen Green.[27] Following this, the band went on tour in Australia with support from Turnover and Break Even.[28] The band toured the UK in July with support from Dinosaur Pile-Up and The Sun Days.[29] In October and November, the band supported Bring Me the Horizon on their UK arena tour.[30] A deluxe edition of the album is planned for release on March 3, 2017 through Fueled by Ramen.[31] In support of the deluxe edition, the band, along with Touché Amoré, supported Thursday on their reunion tour in the US, throughout March–April 2017.[32]
