Twin Atlantic announces UK club tour in support of new album ‘GLA’

They'll hit the road this July to preview the record.
Twin Atlantic have announced a UK club tour off the back of the reveal of their new album ‘GLA’.

Set for release on September 9th, the band previewed the new full-length with a track taken from it – ‘No Sleep’ – on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last night. You can check it out below.

“This is where we come from,” frontman Sam McTrusty explains of the album. “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.”

To give a taster of what to expect, the band are set to play a special show at King Tut’s in Glasgow tonight, before heading across the UK and Europe to play a series of festival dates. Once that’s through, they’ll play some UK club shows in early July.

They read:


9 Arts Club, Liverpool, UK

10 Rescue Rooms, Nottingham, UK

12 Scala, London, UK

14 Victoria Hall, Selkirk, UK

15 La Belle Angele, Edinburgh, UK

Pre-sale for tickets to the shows for those pre-ordering the album begins on Monday 6th June, with general sale starting at 9am on Friday 10th June.
