Having caused quite the stir with their ‘Vivarium’ mini-album and subsequent singles ‘You’re Turning Into John Wayne’ and ‘What Is Light? Where Is Laughter?’, Glaswegian quartet Twin Atlantic are set to release new single ‘Lightspeed’ on Monday 1st March.
The track itself, according to frontman Sam McTrusty, is “about unity and self belief but also understanding the importance of friendship. Being in a band and getting to travel the world with my best friends made me realise this so I wrote a song about it.
The video has a great vibe as it was a really natural approach by Sean Stiegemeier (the director) and we got to visit exploded meth labs, see a fish massacre graveyard and hang out with a guy who felt a connection with some religious overtones...so he painted a hillside to look like the brain of a child.”
A previously announced headline tour has seen some changes, as a result of the band’s late inclusion on the Enter Shikari European tour some dates will have to be rescheduled. The following shows go ahead as planned, with rescheduled dates in Cardiff, London, Nottingham, Birmingham and Southampton to be announced imminently. All tickets purchased for those dates will be valid for the revised dates.
01 - SHEFFIELD O2 Academy 2
02 - LEEDS Cockpit
03 - MANCHESTER Night & Day
04 - NEWCASTLE Digital
06 - GLASGOW ABC
Speaking of the Enter Shikari news, bassist Ross McNae said, “it's really exciting to be playing in so many countries we haven't played in before. We're looking forward to the next few weeks with Enter Shikari and the rest of the year ahead!”
