Have a listen to ‘The Chaser’ by Glaswegian rockers Twin Atlantic, and you’d swear you’d been dropped off somewhere in the excesses of the Seventies. While its promo video might be missing glitter, platforms and big hair, this song falls pretty well in line with the work of Slade and T. Rex. Except ‘The Chaser’ also has a bit more of a pop sheen to round things out, you know, for those who don’t want things going off the rails too much. Yet it’s got a killer guitar solo in the bridge to remind you this is a rock song after all.
So which way is Twin Atlantic’s fourth album ‘GLA’, out the 9th of September on Red Bull Records, going to go? We’ll have to wait and find out. Watch the video for ‘The Chaser’ below, filmed in the Glasgow bar where the band played their first-ever show. For more on the Scottish rock band on TGTF, head here.

Glaswegian alt-rockers Twin Atlantic are previewing their upcoming album with a new track for us. Single ‘No Sleep’ is a ballsy, hard-hitting reminder of the Scottish band’s pre-2014’s ‘The Great Divide’ punk stylings. It will appear on ‘GLA’, the group’s fourth album, which will see the light of day on the 9th of September on Red Bull Records.
The music video for ‘No Sleep’ is simplistic, described by guitar-playing frontman Sam McTrusty as “a simple video, us in our element, our natural environment. Just playing and reacting to the music. We didn’t want to dilute the track with an elaborate visual. The textures projected behind and onto us were inspired by the album art we made for ‘GLA’. This is us. This is our music.” Watch it below. The band have announced live tour dates in the UK in October and December; check this past tour date post for details. For more on Twin Atlantic on TGTF, go here.
Glaswegian alt-rock quartet Twin Atlantic will support the upcoming release of their new album ‘GLA’ with a tour of the UK and Ireland later this year. The October portion of the tour will focus on England and Wales, including a stop at the Manchester Neighbourhood Festival on Saturday the 8th of October. December will see Twin Atlantic moving on to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, finishing the tour with 3 consecutive nights at the Glasgow Barrowland.
Twin Atlantic’s new album ‘GLA’ is due for release on the 9th of September and will include the BBC Radio 1 playlisted single ‘No Sleep’. You can catch a quick preview of ‘No Sleep’ just below the tour date listing. Tickets for the following shows will go on sale this Friday, the 15th of July at 9 AM.

Two Saturdays ago, Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic held court at the famed Brudenell Social Club in Leeds for their turn headlining the Dr. Martens’ #STANDFORSOMETHING UK tour that has been ongoing all this autumn. In the below live gig video, the band perform ‘Heart Soul’, a live fan favourite and single from their 2014 album ‘Great Divide’. Twin Atlantic have said they won’t be performing this song again for a very long time – let’s try and think of this as good news: let’s assume they’ve got new material – but the band’s own pronouncement makes this performance all the more important in the annals of their history. Watch it below.
For more coverage of Twin Atlantic on TGTF, go here. For more on the Dr. Martens’ #STANDFORSOMETHING campaign this year and in past years, this is your link.
Dr. Martens has just announced Dutch Uncles, Palma Violets and Lonely the Brave as the first three headliners on its Stand for Something Tour 2015. As in the past, this year’s Stand for Something Tour will once again feature six shows in six different cities, each headlined by a different up and coming band. Though the headliners for the remaining 3 nights of the tour are yet to be announced, we at TGTF would like to take the opportunity to preview the three bands already lined up to play.
Dutch Uncles, pictured in the header photo at top, released their most recent album back in February, the third in their discography titled ‘O Shudder’. They will appear at Tramlines, Kendal Calling, and Festival Number 6 later this summer before headlining the Glasgow Stand for Something show on the 26th of September. They will spend this November on tour in Europe and the UK with Garbage. When asked by the promoters of the Dr. Martens tour what Dutch Uncles stand for, the band responded in a very literal, yet humourous way: “Determinedly Underrated Tricky Choruses Housed in Uncompromisingly Natured Cadenzas and Listened to Enduringly, Sort of.” Previous TGTF coverage of Dutch Uncles is right this way.
London’s Palma Violets have already had a bustling 2015, headlining the NME Awards Tour in February and March, then releasing their second LP ‘Danger in the Club’ in May. Their summer vacation plans include the ongoing Glastonbury Festival, as well as T in the Park and Reading and Leeds. They will headline the Dr. Martens show on the 10th of October in Norwich before heading out on selected tour dates with The Vaccines in November. For our previous coverage of Palma Violets, click here.
Moving forward from their support slot on last year’s Stand for Something Tour, Cambridge quintet Lonely the Brave will headline the show on the 7th of November in Belfast. They have just released a new version of their debut album ‘The Day’s War’, which they have dubbed the ‘Victory Edition’. The new release includes remixes and live versions from the original album as well as 12 previously unreleased tracks. Building upon their already substantial fan base, Lonely the Brave will play summer festival dates at T in the Park and Reading and Leeds ahead of the Dr. Martens tour. Our previous coverage of Lonely the Brave is right back here.
Following are the announced dates, venues, and headline acts for the Stand for Something Tour 2015. Check the Dr. Martens Web site for updated information as the live dates approach.
