Twin Atlantic have announced the release of their 4th studio album ‘GLA’ for release on the 9th September 2016, and you can hear a preview of the first single ‘No Sleep’ below:
We first interviewed the guys back in 2010 before one of their live shows, and have been in complete awe of Twin Atlantic ever since. They’ve been making waves for a long time now, and with each release push themselves and their talents further, but always stay true to their Scottish roots. Just listening to the snipped of ‘No Sleep’ you can immediately hear those rock and roll elements that the band is so desperate to bring back to us.
“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.” (Sam McTrusty)
Twin Atlantic were guests this week on Radio 1 for their ‘Rock All Dayer’ and did a cracking performance in the Live Lounge of ‘Heart and Soul’ which we highly reccommend you check out on the BBC iPlayer.
