The band have been playing select UK and European festivals throughout the Summer and this week the single ‘No Sleep’ was added to the Radio 1 playlist following Track Of The Day, Hottest Record In The World, and an Annie Mac session. Zane Lowe premiered massive album track “Ex El’ on Beats1 and today Twin Atlantic headline the 2000 Trees Festival in Cheltenham. Next week they treat fans to intimate shows throughout the UK, dates below.

‘No Sleep’ is a punk rock song led by the guttural bass and guitar riffs of McKenna and Mcnae climaxing with McTrusty’s roar of ‘I get no sleep” against a sound wall of insomnia inducing frustration. Musically it sets out the depth and sophistication of new album ‘GLA’ in a way the group have never before delivered.

Listen to ‘No Sleep’ above!

Anticipated album ‘GLA’ was written in Glasgow, and the band repaired to Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles to record the album, working with Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, Two Door Cinema Club) who had previously produced some tracks for previous Top 10 album ‘Great Divide’ (2014). Under his direction, they eschewed old school recording techniques, taping their parts separately. This change in their recording process marked the grander ambitions of the new songs, while their dream mixer Alan Moulder (best known for his unforgettable work with Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Foo Fighters and My Bloody Valentine) came aboard to give the album the essential finishing touch.

Twin Atlantic intimate fan shows:

9th July                        Arts Club, Liverpool, UK
10th July                       Rescue Rooms, Nottingham, UK
12th July                       Scala, London, UK
