Blackpool’s Boston Manor have released their already-acclaimed third album ‘GLUE’ today and the band talk through each song live on YouTube here. Henry, Daniel, Mike, Ash and Jordan connected remotely to talk through each track’s evolution and the themes explored within. 

Boston Manor recently released their single ‘Plasticine Dreams’, a soulful composition complete with contemplative animated music video, which features on the full-length. The track was named Rockest Radio on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show and has received spins on The Indie Show at Radio 1 and Kerrang! Radio, with the video going into rotation at Kerrang! TV and MTV Rocks.

‘GLUE’ is the sound of a band questioning the state of the world around them. Inevitably, in a critical examination of the modern world, it comes from a dark place, but one that fuelled the five-piece to create a body of work that elevates their craft further than ever before. Its 13 highly charged songs came out of a process that Cox describes as “very chaotic”,  but the result is a truly ferocious album.

The album was recorded at The Barber Shop studios in New Jersey, produced by Mike Sapone and engineered by Brett Romnes. Cox admits that these are not just the most primal and plain-speaking songs the band have ever recorded, but everything the previous seven years have been leading up to. In a modern world that’s corrupt and full of inequality and injustice, Cox hopes the album will be a call to arms for everybody who listens to it – to make them realise they need to take notice of what’s happening both around them and on a larger, more global scale. “I want people to listen to it and feel something and think about things,” he says. “The aim of the whole record is to make people angry. It’s to make them go ‘Well, this pisses me off, how can I change it? What is one thing that I can personally do – that I can start doing today – to make a difference?’ Because we can do better than this. We just need to start.”
