The band continue to riff on the connection between the name of their last album – 2019’s ‘It Won/t Be Like This All The Time’ – and the global pandemic, with new screen print posters promoting the event.

During the Tim Burgess listening party event for a live album based on that record released in April, the band said the title had been “living with me for the past three/four years”.

“Right now that sentiment feels stronger than ever. We’ll get through this together.”

Last month, The Twilight Sad shared a “lost” song called ‘Tell Me When We’re Having Fun’, recorded during the ‘No One Can Ever Know’ era.

In a four-star review of ‘It Won/t Be Like This All The Time’, NME said of the Robert Smith-endorsed studio record: “Rather than being owned by their demons, The Twilight Sad have created an 11-track exorcism to master them. It’s a full-bodied and inescapable mood-piece, and a visceral account of their victory in the fight to exist. We should feel grateful to have them.”
