Ahead of the release of their fourth album, Beside Myself, UK post-grunge exports Basement find themselves at a curious crossroads. For context, the band was originally together for four years, releasing two studio albums in that time. In 2018, the band has entered its fourth year back in action and – wouldn't you know it – are on the verge of releasing their second album since officially reuniting in 2014.
It's a matter of months before the reincarnated Basement will have lasted longer than they did in their original run, which is a point of discussion the band admittedly hasn't gone over until now. “I never really thought of it that way – that's quite interesting,” says Andrew Fisher, the band's lead vocalist.
