Indie rockers Childhood have announced the release date of their debut album ahead of their appearance at Latitude Festival in July.

The four-piece, whose drummer Jonny Williams is from Stevenage, will release their new LP Lacuna on August 11.

Jonny said: “Being in a studio is definitely different to playing in a room at home. No one has heard our newest song yet but we probably wouldn’t have written that song the way we have if we’d just jammed it in a room and played it live for a while.

“Looking towards the future, we may soon have the opportunity to record a cover, which may end up being a lot cooler than just doing a cover, but we can’t really talk about it at the moment.”

Childhood will play Latitude Festival, being held between Thursday July 17 - Sunday 20, in Suffolk. They will play alongside headliners Damon Albarn, Two Door Cinema Club and The Black Keys.
