Twin Atlantic have a new album coming out. Yay.
Following on from a snippet of new music teased last week, the band took to Annie Mac’s Radio One show tonight (June 2nd) to debut the first single and talk about their fourth album ‘GLA‘. Check out ‘No Sleep‘ below.
The album is named after their hometown of Glasgow (it’s the airport code) and, as Sam McTrusty explains, “This is where we come from. It’s laced in our blood not to mention our art and vision. It’s bold. It’s in our voice. It’s time to embrace it and not work around it. This album is our reflection of what it’s like to come from a city at the forefront of multiculturalism, both forward thinking and with a real sense of community, but also with a dark and rough history. We have changed our approach to writing and recording; we turned the idea of a rock band upside down, conforming only to this one idea – to take back rock and roll. To give people something real again. You can’t get more real than Glasgow.
Infamous for rivalry and danger. Passion and fear. Diversity and depth. Love and warmth. Small spaces and one climate. We have finally made the album we wanted to make.”
The record is out September 9th and is available to preorder now.
