Excitement around Sea Girls continues to build ahead of their new record as they unveil their brilliant new single ‘Lonely’ - taken from the new release ‘Homesick. Released on the 25th of March 2022 on Polydor, the anticipation coincides with the announcement of the band’s biggest headline shows to date.
‘The Hometown Tour’ will be kicking off in mid-November, where the Sea Girls will take on seven monster shows including what is expected to be a special night at London’s Alexandra Palace on November the 25th.

The band will be looking to follow up successes of their debut album ‘Open Up Your Head’ through their live shows later this year. Their debut release saw it officially certified as a ‘BRIT Breakthrough’ album by the BPI, having achieved over 30,000 OCC sales in the UK alone.
And in their upcoming album, Henry Camamile, Rory Young, Andrew Dawson and Oli Khan deliver thirteen measures of guitar driven pop brilliance including 2 bonus Deluxe tracks. A deeply personal record, lead singer Henry Camamile returned to his childhood home in Lincolnshire at the wake of the pandemic, finding himself having to address and reflect on events from his past, both good and bad.
A cathartic process, Henry leaves nothing to the imagination with his astute storytelling and candid lyrics. Delving into some of his darkest moments, the uplifting album comes as a sense of relief, a gratefulness for survival. Lyrically raw and packed to the brim with hooks, the band step into new realms with an added sense of maturity and a bigger ambitious sounding record.
Sea Girls, one of the most exciting guitar bands to have emerged in recent times, are the torchbearers for the next wave. Delivering sing-along anthems for the masses, the band’s journey is well and truly on its way.
