Drenge have released their much-anticipated third album.
Titled ‘Strange Creatures’ and produced by longtime collaborator Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, M.I.A.), the full-length is out today (Friday, 22nd February) via Infectious Records. It follows up on 2013’s self-titled debut and 2015’s ‘Undertow’, as well as their recent ‘Autonomy EP’.
Speaking about the new album, the band explain: “It’s a nocturnal record. A psychological horror movie on wax. Warped hallucinations from mundane observations as you move through it. Is that a school or a skyscraper on fire in the distance? Or maybe it’s just the ski village? You drive nearer, past roadside diners jammed with dancing teenagers, through Uncanny Valley, past the most unhygienic nightclub in the world. The stereo sounds like it’s going to fall apart at any moment. The car judders to a halt and all you can hear is the sound of the sea.”

Drenge will be supporting the release of ‘Strange Creatures’ with a UK tour next March and April. Kicking off in Glasgow, it’ll call off in Newcastle, Manchester, Cambridge, London, Portsmouth, Bristol and Birmingham.
