Twin Atlantic Announce New Album, Power, And Intimate UK Tour
Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic are back! The band have not only announced a new album, Power – they’ve also unveiled its ace lead single Novocaine, and a bunch of intimate UK tour dates for next year.
Speaking of the band’s first new music since 2016’s GLA, frontman Sam McTrusty says of Novocaine: “I wanted to force myself to be more honest and open. The song tells the story of the most intimate connection I’ve ever felt with someone else: when I first met my wife. That feeling of obsession taking over every thought and reason was almost like an addiction at the time. It embarrasses us in some ways that we fell victim to such a cliched movie script love story, but equally amazes us that it ever happened.”

The single is taken from Twin’s forthcoming fifth studio album Power, which is due out on January 24 via Virgin EMI. Of the themes of the LP, Sam expands: “The album is inspired by colours, moods, memories. We just got into a room and started creating. The studio as its own instrument reached a new level – we created nothing outside those walls and it became a physical embodiment of the album itself. Power is our own example that there’s always a way forward when you are faced with limitations and red lights. It’s reignited our ambition and drive for what we can achieve. Hearing these songs, that’s what I feel and hear: power.
“And that’s what the last two years have made us feel as a band: totally empowered.”
To coincide with the announcement of Power, Twin Atlantic have announced an intimate UK tour for March.
