UK singer/songwriter, Sam Fender has announced, that his debut release, Hypersonic Missiles will drop on August 9, via Interscope Records. The album was written, recorded and produced at Fender’s own self-built warehouse studio in North Shields, UK and recorded alongside long-standing friend and producer, Bramwell Bronte.

After quitting school, Fender found work behind the bar in a local Shields pub (“a drinking town with a fishing problem” he’s joked on more than one occasion). He was discovered by his eventual manager when the pub’s landlord, recognizing him, nudged Sam to go fetch his guitar and play something. Fender, usually castigated for musing on a guitar during work hours, picked it up and belted out two or three songs of his own. The pair have worked with each other ever since.

About his lyrics, Fender says “I don’t have answers only questions”. “Dead Boys” tackles the taboo of male suicide and “Hypersonic Missiles, the album’s title-track, is named for newly developed Russian missile that travels at nine times the speed of sound.
