London alt rock band Sad Boys Club have announced their debut album Lullabies from The Lightning Tree will be released 5th May via Modern Sky. Today the band have also announced new EU and UK tours for the spring and shared the album's lead single and its accompanying video "To Heal Without a Scar (Is a Waste Of a Good Wound)".


Dark, mysterious, and brooding, Sad Boys Club are set to have their breakout year. Newly announced album Lullabies From The Lightning Tree builds upon their previous string of EP releases that have seen them co-signed by the likes of Fred Macpherson, Matty Healy, Phoebe Bridgers and more.


The album's lead single "To Heal Without a Scar (Is a Waste Of a Good Wound)" was produced and mixed by the band's bassist Pedro Caetano and was a pivotal moment in the creation of the album. Emotionally charged and imbued with searing intensity, the song is ultimately rooted in improving oneself.


Speaking on the lyrical inspiration behind the new single, vocalist Jacob Wheldon said:


"Sometimes I can have a hard time acknowledging life as reality, maybe I just don't want to. It often results in bad consequences for myself and those around me which I then use songs to somehow justify - some might argue that makes me a toxic narcissist (/man), I'm not sure I'd disagree. I'm working on it. A lot of this album is about working on whatever 'it' is. Getting better? It fell out at the end of a particularly bad period of writer's block and unblocked a majority of the writing on the record so feels like the only place to begin."
