Coach Party have dropped “Born Leader.” The track, is the latest off the group’s self-produced album, which arrives on September 8th, 2023 via Chess Club Records. The release arrives during a fruitful month for the band, which will see them hitting the stage at Glastonbury Festival as part of the BBC Introducing stage lineup, as well performing as the main support for Queens of The Stone Age on several of their UK shows next week.

“Sitting between two of our more thrashy tracks on the album, this song more calmly confronts how we can overthink the way others might view ourselves as a person, a friend, a partner, a public figure or whatever, and to let those thoughts influence who you think you should be, or encourage you to hide your true self to keep up a facade which likely only exists in your own head,” says drummer & producer Guy Page. “But the truth is that those superficial efforts aren’t going to be what anyone really loves about you; it just feeds your own self doubt.”

The Isle Of Wight’s forthcoming album is described as “an unapologetic introduction Coach Party,” which includes members Jess Eastwood (vocals-bass), Steph Norris (guitar), Joe Perry (guitar) and Guy Page (drums); all of whom met while growing up on the rural community and eventually crossed paths working in venues, playing together and meeting at the same gigs.
