After the success of their debut album, ‘Reverie’, Stables are set to release the first single in a series of 12: ‘Ringmore Rise’.
Ringmore Rise and the plan to release a single every month for the next year was the result of a meeting between Matthew and Danie in June, where the duo discussed their future in the industry. Matthew says ‘we spent the week working out if we could continue full time as musicians, with the decline of CDs, Brexit possibly making our European touring a lot harder and personal factors. I went away and wrote Ringmore Rise after we decided that Stables was too important to us. It’s a statement to continue for many years to come’.
The alt-folk duo was formed by Matthew Lowe (Keston Cobblers Club) and Daniel Trenholme in January 2016, releasing their debut album just four months after going public in August ’16, completing their first UK headline tour the same year and gaining a strong industry and fan following, including the championing of BBC DJ Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and featuring on BBC Radio 6’s Music Recommends programme as well as many others.
Since 2017 Stables furthered their reach, playing numerous festivals including Glastonbury and completing 5 headline European tours in 2 years (with another planned for this November).
As well as making music, the duo hit the headlines in April upon launching their own Coffee brand Stables Coffee Co. A roasting venture designed to work alongside their music and fill the obvious hole that CDs once filled.
‘Ringmore Rise is a track about love, about passion and stopping to enjoy what you have, instead of always chasing the next thing’ says Matthew. ‘It is also literally a street at the top of a hill from me in Forest Hill. I walk up it every couple of days to destress and look over London, taking time to figure out my next move’.
Ringmore Rise is out on the 6th September 2019. For more information on this and for all the latest tour dates and festival announcements please visit www.stablesmusic.com
