Texas group Midlake are back with their first new music since 2013. They’ve shared a song titled “Meanwhile…,” the first track from their next record, For the Sake of Bethel Woods. The album is out March 18 via ATO. Check out “Meanwhile…” and the tracklist below.

Eric Pulido, who took over as bandleader following the departure of Tim Smith in late 2012,  shared the following statement:

“Meanwhile…” is a song referencing the time in between what transpired leading up to our hiatus in ’14, and what inspired us to reconvene in ’20. says The former being an unhealthy and unsustainable place that called for pause and the latter a serendipitous visit from Jesse’s late father (Dave Chandler, depicted on the album cover) in a dream encouraging him to reunite with the band. Everyone had their respective experience during the uncertain time apart culminating in a confident and celebratory return to form.

After releasing their fourth album Antiphon in 2013, the band began an extended hiatus. They reissued their second album The Trials of Van Occupanther in 2016 for its 10th anniversary.
