Arcane Roots release video for new track ‘Off The Floor’ & announce UK tour dates

Today (July 18th) the mighty ARCANE ROOTS release their huge, brand new single ‘Off The Floor’, along with  this new video, which you can watch here:


The track had its world first, exclusive play last night on Radio 1 with Annie Mac as her Hottest Record In The World (with live, on air interview with the band as well), which you can listen to and watch – HERE‘Off The Floor’ purchase/stream link – HERE

The single is available across all digital streaming and downloadable platforms from today, but will also be made available to everyone that has pre-ordered the new ‘Melancholia Hymns’ album (digitally) as an instant grat track. The record is released on September 15th through Easy Life/Red Essential, and includes already released singles ‘Curtains’ and ‘Matter’.

Front-man and guitarist Andrew Groves explains a little bit about the meaning behind the song –  “Off The Floor was the very first time we had ever openly written about politics. Current world events had become an almost unavoidable weight over us during the writing of Melancholia Hymns, and where it would usually be something we would shy away from, it felt like now more than ever that we had a duty to speak up. Never before had it felt like something could actually change and that we had a responsibility to encourage people to vote and make a difference. Musically, we wanted to write something that felt at home on a festival stage but was structured more electronically, with a constant build towards as big of a riff/drop as we could dream up. “
