Twin Atlantic have announced they will release new album ‘GLA’ later this year.
Written in the boy’s homeland of Glasgow, ‘GLA’ will be released on September 9th.
Frontman Sam McTrusty explained why it was so important to write about their home city and how it is the essence of who they are as a band.
“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,” said Sam.
“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.”
Twin Atlantic will be playing a string of intimate fan shows in the UK including a secret show at King Tuts in Glasgow tonight, which sold out in two minutes when announced last night.
The band will also play the Scala in London on 12thJuly.
The last tour included shows at Glasgow’s 10,000 capacity SSE Hydro and Brixton Academy in London.
