All is Due is the epic debut album from talented UK alternative crew, PRINCE BISHOP. Tugging from a myriad of genres from alt, post and prog rock, and taking widespread influence from a collection of bands panning from ELO and Supertramp through to Radiohead, Muse, and Jeff Buckley, All is Due takes the listener on a whole-hearted journey – from introspection to celebration. The album arrives everywhere on Friday 25th November, and is heralded by their soulful new single and video, Return, out now – https://youtu.be/elo1oEYRDwo .
If Durham-based PRINCE BISHOP sound unlike any other band, they have successfully hit their intention. Taking great time and vision to effect a unique approach to music, songwriter Ben Trenerry has worked diligently to create the labour of love that is All is Due. Ben elaborates: “I have spent years trying to understand and translate the sounds I hear in my head and the feeling they create. It has taken an age to get here.” Originally completed and slated for release before the pandemic, the album was inevitably delayed. Vibey from start-to-finish, All is Due is a collection of songs originally formed with just a voice and acoustic guitar, but translated as a live ‘band in a room’ recording, enhanced with layers of studio work. Its alluring Queen-esque vocal harmonies, cascading waves of reverb and engulfing delayed guitars, stout drums, intricate bass lines, touches of crafty Hammond organ, and bags of heart, all make this a masterful album.
Prior to the release of All Is Due, PRINCE BISHOP have revealed an emotional new single, Return. Ben Trenerry explains: “This is a very personal song. I spent a lot of my youth searching externally for things to bring me inner peace. However, it was only when I began to look inside myself, put others first, and take responsibility for my own happiness that I started to see my own proverbial road home”.
Return is out now, and the single is taken from the upcoming debut album, All is Due, which is out Friday 25th November.
