It’s due to land this summer with features from Roots Manuva and Channel Tres
UK duo Jungle have announced the release of their fourth studio album ‘Volcano’, due to land this summer on August 11.
‘Volcano’ arrives almost two years to the date after their last LP, ‘Loving In Stereo’, set for release on the band’s joint imprint Caiola Records.
The announcement comes alongside a new track from the duo, ‘Candle Flame’ featuring Erick The Architect, which landed earlier this week, March 27.

“As Jungle, we are incredibly proud of our latest release, ‘Candle Flame’,” the pair said on the new track. “We wanted to create a song that was both personal and relatable, exploring the highs and lows of love and relationships in a way that was both poetic and authentic.”
The pair added that this track “represents everything we stand for as a band”, with a “commitment to making music that touches the hearts and minds of our fans”.
‘Candle Flame’ was released on Tuesday as part of a partnership between the production duo and WeTransfer. The track was the first in a series of free digital drops for fans, and included phone and desktop wallpapers, a ringtone, and the track itself.

Jungle have also shared details for a forthcoming US/EU tour, due to start this September following the record’s release and a headline set at London’s All Points East festival.
The duo will embark on September 6, starting in North America where they’ll hit LA, Vancouver, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and more. The tour will carry on through Europe in October and November, concluding at Antwerp’s Lotto Arena.
