Twin Atlantic only released ‘Great Divide‘ at the tail end of 2014 but they’re already in the studio, working on a follow-up.
Speaking to Radio One, Sam McTrusty explained, “I’m calling from Los Angeles. It’s so glamorous. I’m standing on the Hollywood sign as we speak and getting ready to go back into the studio today and record our new record. We’ve been working on it since we left everyone at Reading and Leeds last summer.
“It’s probably our quickest turnaround on a new album. It’s probably our heaviest record so far. It’s our most reactive album, we usually spend a lot more time thinking things through and being a bit methodical about things and it’s probably gotten away from us in the past. Anyone in a band who’s tried to play guitar knows that sometimes your brain can get in the way and this is the sound of our band, it’s just instinct. It’s a lot more visceral and a lot more In your face. It definitely makes us feel like we’ve reinvented something in rock music, in this format.
“Hopefully everyone’s going to be as blown away by it as we were. It’ll be out this year, we’re hoping it’ll be out this summer because it’s got that feel to it but we’re just playing it by ear. We’ve come to expect the unexpected when it comes to making a record.”
The band have also been announced as one of the headliners for 2000 Trees Festival alongside Refused.”We’re really excited to be headlining 2000 trees because it’ll be the first time we’ll be headlining a festival in England,” Sam continues. “Obviously it’s their tenth anniversary, which we didn’t know when we got asked to play so there are so many reasons to be excited to play the festival. We can’t wait.”
