NEW SINGLE 'ALL THAT MEDICINE'

Today we release our NEW SINGLE 'All That Medicine' from the forthcoming album 'Change Your Position' due 9th March 2018.

-Click play on the video above to hear it in full-

Vocalist and guitarist Alex Veale explains how the track came about: “We had started coming up with initial ideas for songs for what would become our second album ‘Change Your Position’ and it was the moment we had a jam through the riff of ‘All That Medicine’ that everything became clear. For me, it is the root of the album from which everything else grew. It was inspired in part by Fame by David Bowie, the idea of cycling around a riff and a groove totally appealed to me. I think it’s the one we are most looking forward to playing on the road and making sure that riff really hits hard.”

"If an album is about capturing a band or artist at a certain point, 'Change Your Position' might have happened at the perfect time. As a band we toured, found our sound, found our place and took inspiration from a world in utter chaos. With 'Change Your Position' we pushed ourselves creatively as hard as we could and it took us further into ourselves than we expected - we hope it's apparent to the listener." - Alex Veale

CHANGE YOUR POSITION ALBUM PRE-ORDER

 
 

Our new album 'Change Your Position' will be released on 9th March 2018 and is available to pre-order from TODAY! It will be available on CD, Digitally, Limited Edition Gatefold Vinyl and Limited Edition Light Blue Vinyl.

'Change Your Position' is the follow up to the 2016 critically-acclaimed debut album 'Fed To The Lions'. The new album sees the band take a huge step forward as both songwriters and performers and the band’s unique blend of fuzz-driven rock has won them a legion of fans. The album stamps its authority right from the off with stomper “Money In the Bank”. From the staccato attack of 'Playing With Fire' to the huge riffs of 'Cut Your Chains', from the garage rock of 'On The Run' to the slow groove and instant lyrical hit of 'All That Medicine'. 'Change Your Position' is a lean, focused album loaded with an energy that is set to propel the band to headline status.

"If an album is about capturing a band or artist at a certain point, 'Change Your Position' might have happened at the perfect time. As a band we toured, found our sound, found our place and took inspiration from a world in utter chaos. With 'Change Your Position' we pushed ourselves creatively as hard as we could and it took us further into ourselves than we expected - we hope it's apparent to the listener." – Alex Veale
