The Band Of Holy Joy return with the long-awaited release of their new album How To Kill A Butterfly on Friday 28 October on Jonny Mugwump’s Exotic Pylon label. They wet the album's head the following night with a special launch party at Waterman's Art Centre, Brentford with support from special guests  Simon Rivers, Phil Martin and Paul McGrath of The Bitter Springs. The show will begin with a set from singer-songwriter Simon Morgan.

Inspired by the historically renowned Observers series of guidebooks, How To Kill A Butterfly comprises a set of rural Northern songs, iridescent and distressed in nature. It is an album of sadness, ignorance and longing.
