Los Angeles, CA – December 8, 2017 – RHYE today announced that their highly anticipated sophomore album BLOOD will be released on February 2, 2018 via Loma Vista Recordings. BLOOD follows RHYE’s debut album Woman, which was released in 2013 to wide critical acclaim. The album is available for pre-order starting today HERE.
“We’ve spent the last few years on the road translating the Woman album from a bedroom project into a full live experience. With BLOOD, it’s been the opposite process; the music and sounds were really born out of the live environment and are built for performance,” commented RHYE frontman Milosh. “It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable in front of an audience night after night. I use the same courage on every song on this record.”
RHYE today also shared their new track “Count to Five” off the forthcoming album. Sonically, the song is reflective of the band’s evolving live show as the group gears up for extensive touring next year. “Count to Five” is available to stream and download now via iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Google Play.
“Count to Five” follows the October release of track “Taste”, which was lauded as, “reserved, understated, and brilliant” by NPR Music, and “busy but not cluttered, sexy but not serious” by Pitchfork. Directed and produced by digital programming brand, DanceOn, the track’s stunning accompanying music video can be seen HERE. RHYE treated fans to an early taste of new music earlier this Summer with the release of tracks  “Please” and “Summer Days”, and the Roosevelt Remix for “Summer Days”. Watch the videos for “Please” HERE and “Summer Days (Roosevelt Remix)” HERE.

About RHYE
A mosaic of emotive piano keys, physical percussion, buzzing analog synths, and expansive vocals, RHYE find humanity in musicality. Driven by this approach, the group quietly transformed into a phenomenon with the arrival of their 2013 debut, Woman. The record garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork who dubbed it “Best New Album.” “Open” would concurrently accumulate over 45.4 million Spotify streams, while “The Fall” surpassed 25.4 million. Along the way, they sold out theaters around the globe between standout festival sets at Coachella, Pitchfork, and a highlight concert in Denmark accompanied by a 49-piece all-girls choir. As the band began writing in 2016, this expansive live show indelibly impacted their second full-length album in 2017. The first single “Please” siphons a gorgeous vocal plea through a kaleidoscope of sparse percussion and piano that’s simultaneously stirring, stark, and sensual. It’s a new musical experience. It’s RHYE.
