Bristol four-piece Scaler have shared a new single titled “LOAM” which was produced by critically acclaimed electronic musician and DJ, Daniel Avery.

Announcing the name change via their socials, the band said: “We have changed our band name. All future releases, performances & projects will come under the new name SCALER. As this band has grown and the opportunity to travel further afield has presented itself, we've become aware of the wider context surrounding our previous name and how offensive it can be to Indigenous cultures. We want to apologise for this, it was never our intent to offend. Everything else remains the same."

The band also teased the release of the brand new single, "LOAM", which marks a new chapter for Scaler. Having connected with one another following the release of their highly praised 2022 debut album, Void, the band’s collaboration with Daniel Avery sees the band lean further into their club and dance-based influences.

Speaking on the single, Scaler says: "When the opportunity to work with Daniel Avery came up we obviously jumped at it; we’ve been fans of his for a long time and working on these tracks with him really helped us be more decisive, to trust our gut and not overcomplicate things."

Scaler have also shared details of a UK headline tour to come in November 2023. Having recently been nominated for Best Live Performer at the AIM Awards 2023, the dates follow an extremely successful run of captivating summer festival appearances including a set at Glastonbury and a packed-out headline slot at ArcTanGent, as well as performances at Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Visions, Standon Calling, Bluedot Festival, and many more.

The forthcoming tour includes stops in Manchester, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Bristol, and a date at London venue 9294.

"LOAM" is out now. Tickets for Scaler's forthcoming tour will be on sale on 7 September.
