All is Due is the superb debut album from gifted Brit alternative trio, PRINCE BISHOP. Pulling from a multitude of genres from alt, post and prog rock, and taking widespread influence from an assortment of bands ranging from ELO and Supertramp through to Radiohead, Muse, and Jeff Buckley, All is Due takes the listener on a whole-hearted journey – from introspection to celebration. The album arrives everywhere on Friday 25th November, and is proceeded by their powerful new single and video, Soul Of A Man, out now. Watch the video here.
If Durham-based PRINCE BISHOP sound unlike any other band, they have successfully hit their intention. Taking great time and vision to affect a unique approach to music, songwriter Ben Trenerry has worked diligently to create the labour of love that is All is Due. Ben elaborates: “I have spent years trying to understand and translate the sounds I hear in my head and the feeling they create. It has taken an age to get here.” Originally completed and slated for release before the pandemic, the album was inevitably delayed. Vibey from start-to-finish, All is Due is a collection of songs originally formed with just a voice and acoustic guitar, but translated as a live ‘band in a room’ recording, enhanced with layers of studio work. Its alluring Queen-esque vocal harmonies, cascading waves of reverb and engulfing delayed guitars, stout drums, intricate bass lines, touches of crafty Hammond organ, and bags of heart, all make this a consummate album.
The band’s recent single, Return, picked up glowing acclaim from a slew of websites and radio stations, as well as prominent support from Planet Rock. PRINCE BISHOP’s current single, Soul Of A Man, is one of the key highlights from the band’s new album, and is expected to span even further than their previous singles.
