22nd March, 2024 (London, UK) – After nearly twenty years since their last release, the exceptional British Alt-rock band bôa returns with a stellar new single, “Walk With Me,” today via Nettwerk. This is our first glimpse into the band's new collection of music after their 1998 single “Duvet,” which soundtracked the Japanese cult-classic anime ‘Serial Experiments Lain,’ re-emerged on TikTok after being sampled by Yung Beef. Since its resurfacing, “Duvet” has soundtracked nearly 300,000 TikTok videos and gathered over 450M streams. The sudden success helped bring the band back together to write and record more music with a renewed sense of passion...

Recorded with producer Chris Zane (Jack Antonoff, Passion Pit, St. Lucia), “Walk With Me” is a familiar, bright, expansive embrace that envelops the optimism of starting over again. Though the song may technically be about meeting someone new after a past breakup, it also serves as a welcome call to bring the band back together. “You give me something else to think about...You give me something else to dream about,” vocalist- guitarist Jasmine Rodgers sings. Bassist Alex Caird shares of the song's effortless vibe, “There was a sort of dreamy sound to it. It started with a little guitar part. Usually, for us, if a riff is good from the start, everything will just slot together.” Now, more polished than ever and two decades later, “Walk With Me” has arrived and is available on all digital and streaming platforms here.

After beginning a brief hiatus in the mid-2000s, the members of bôa simply lived life. There was no hostility, no dejection, no gripes. Jasmine studied zoology alongside playing solo performances. Alex threw himself into art, painting, and teaching music. Their drummer Lee Sullivan ensconced himself in his family while writing and producing music. They all kept in touch and their time apart gave them a heap of life’s experiences for a new chapter of music.

After playing at London's Colours venue last month (which sold out in minutes after going on sale), bôa will headline next at Islington Assembly Hall on the 16th July, again already sold out. They recently announced a headline North American tour, starting in September. A full list of current dates can be viewed below.
