‘Twin Atlantic have thrown out the rule book on their brilliant sixth studio album’- 1883 Magazine
Following a string of taster tracks, including part-Glasgow-rap, part-punk-rock-rant ‘Get Famous’, the charismatic and swaggering ‘Bang On The Gong’, and frantic lead single ‘One Man Party, Twin Atlantic have released their highly-anticipated new album Transparency.
‘Transparency’ is Sam McTrusty spilling his guts on everything from marriage, male friendship and the absurdity of social media to parenthood, medication and his mum. Written in strained circumstances and recorded remotely with Sam’s mate and mentor Jacknife Lee, the album arrived more by accident than design when the world went into lockdown last spring. Listen to Transparency HERE.
Sam says; “After the challenges put in front of everyone in 2020 and 21 I did what I’ve always done in moments of turmoil, stress or anxiety and started to write songs. It slowly evolved into an album and something we feel puts a new stamp on our band which really excites us.”
For an album made quietly in lockdown, Transparency is begging to be played loud and live. Bold, adventurous, and a load of fun. This is a new era for Twin Atlantic.
The band will play a special run of intimate in-store acoustic performances in support of the album this March. Originally planned for January 2022, the rescheduled dates kick off on Monday 7th March at Liverpool’s Jacaranda and will see them visit Kingston, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Nottingham & Bristol.
