Amidst their extensive U.S. tour opening for 5 Seconds of Summer, Pale Waves have released the single and music video for “Jealousy” from their upcoming album Unwanted, out August 12 via Dirty Hit. PRESS HERE to listen to the amped-up, anthemic ode to the obsessive that continues the band’s hot streak of worldwide radio premieres by being announced as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record in the World. Closing out Pride month with a bang, “Jealousy” explores a darker shade of love and jealousy as something that proves devotion while effortlessly showcasing the band’s chic and stylized approach to alternative rock.

“Some may see it as ridiculous,” explains frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie, “but I love a bit of jealousy – not too much, but just enough… I want jealousy in a relationship because it shows me the person only has eyes for me and me only.”

“Jealousy” follows the release of album track “Reasons To Live,” a euphoric burst of energy premiered by Zane Lowe about finding someone who keep going, and lead single “Lies” – an angst-fueled, rebellious pop-punk anthem that pairs the crunchy guitars and rhythmic drive of 2000s with the rage of a 90s rock band to speak to lies catching up with someone who has shattered your trust.

Building on Pale Waves’ previous album, Who Am I?, which saw Heather becoming more personal in her songwriting to open up about her journey of self-discovery and falling in love, Unwanted takes a step further; exploring loss, vanity, anger, jealousy and hopelessness in a style that marks new territory for Pale Waves. Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Zakk Cervini (Blink-182, Halsey, Machine Gun Kelly), Unwanted taps into darker emotions than ever before while also striking a fresh tone of defiance and reaching out into the passionate community of misfits and LGBTQIA+ fans around the band. PRESS HERE to pre-order Unwanted.

“The album dives into feelings that I felt not only needed to be written but I felt like our fans want to hear,” continues Heather on the themes that inspired Unwanted. “Almost everyone has felt like they don’t belong, or has been made to feel like they’re not good enough. That’s a consistent theme that I’m seeing from our fans – that their family doesn’t approve of them, or their friends have disowned them because they’ve come out. So Unwanted had to be honest, provocative and loud. Not only thematically, but in the music as well.”

Currently touring as the official opener on 5 Seconds of Summer’s nationwide U.S. amphitheater tour, Pale Waves will also be playing a string of select headline shows before taking the stage for huge international festival dates. PRESS HERE for tickets.

Cementing their status as one of the most exciting acts to come out of the UK with the 2021 sophomore album Who Am I?, Pale Waves have made a name for themselves by inspiring inclusivity and self-discovery and creating space for people hoping to figure out who they are. Flipping the script to introduce a nostalgic pop-punk sound built on newfound confidence, Who Am I? introduced standout singles “Change,” “Easy,” and “She’s My Religion” alongside a distinct, guitar-laden alternative energy and hit #3 on the UK album charts. The album received critical acclaim from Pitchfork, Vanity Fair, Billboard, NPR, Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed, The FADER, AV Club, Vulture, Consequence, Stereogum, Alternative Press, NYLON, and many more.

Pale Waves – comprised of front woman Heather Baron-Gracie (she/her); drummer Ciara Doran (they/them); guitarist Huge Silvani (he/him) and bassist Charlie Wood (he/him) – made an immediate splash when they debuted on the music scene with their debut album My Mind Makes Noises, hitting the Top 10 on UK Album Chart, winning the NME Under The Radar award, touring with fellow Dirty Hit label mates and mentors The 1975 as well as Muse and The Cure, performing at Reading, Leeds, Lollapalooza, and SXSW, and appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
