Coming twenty years after they first broke through with their debut album, Scream Above The Sounds is the band's 10th studio release. The album follows Keep The Village Alive which went straight to #1 when it was released in 2015 - their sixth chart-topper after Performance and Cocktails (1999), Just Enough Education To Perform (2001), You Gotta Go There To Come Back (2003), Language. Sex. Violence. Other? (2005) and Pull The Pin (2007). Scream Above The Sounds was primarily recorded in the band's HQ in west London with a further session at RAK Studios alongside a few elements which remained from the Keep The Village Alive sessions at ICP Studios in Brussels. The band's relative newcomers, Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums), along with live keyboardist Tony Kirkham, are also an integral part of the Stereophonics in 2017. Created with the help of regular collaborator Jim Lowe, it's an album in which creative sonic touches add to the band's emphasis on songwriting and melody.
