It feels like forever since we had new music from Arcane Roots but luckily, after a handful of teaser clips, that audio drought is over.
Premiered on the Radio 1 Rock Show earlier tonight and now available below in all it’s extended, full-length glory, ‘If Nothing Breaks, Nothing Moves’ is the first new material from the band since 2014’s standalone ‘Over and Over’.

Written as a promise to their fans, ‘If Nothing Breaks, Nothing Moves’ has been kicking around Arcane Roots’ live set for a while and it’s their that it took shape and found a purpose.
“The first song is a statement,” says vocalist Andrew Groves of their comeback single.
“When I’m playing it live, it reminds me that this is the decision I wanted to make. I want to put as many road blocks in as possible, so that I have to live up to the things I want to say. Even in the lyrics, the first words are essentially ‘You’re here tonight, I’m playing a gig and here we are. I’m standing in front of you and I hate looking at the audience. I feel embarrassed by that and I never remember the words’.”
“If I’m honest with everyone, I’m trying really hard and we cant be annoyed or angry if something doesn’t happen. If we don’t give it 100% every night then, if we’re ever annoyed that things haven’t gone our way, we can always look back to those gigs and maybe things would be different. I just like the idea of saying that out loud. I have to give it 100% every single night if we want to have the success that we want, rather than what’s laid out before us. You have to engineer that,” explains Andrew. “You have to start doing that now because no one is going to do it for you.”
