Twin Atlantic News Bundle

Without a doubt one of the hardest working bands in Rock, Twin Atlantic will be hitting your airwaves with their infectious new single “Make A Beast Of Myself” on April 23rd. In addition, Twin will be releasing a limited edition 7” vinyl picture disc of “Make A Beast Of Myself” for Record Store Day on April 21st. Their epic cover of “Who You Are” by Jessie J - which was performed in the Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1 on Fearne Cotton’s show, received a rapturous response and will be the exclusive B side only available on vinyl - so don’t miss out!
To celebrate Record Store Day, Twin Atlantic will be doing an exclusive in-store signing at Soundclash in Norwich ahead of their show that night at The Waterfront. The signing will begin at 6pm so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Currently on tour in the USA, Twin Atlantic will be back in the UK this Spring for their fast selling headline tour and will also be special guests on a run of dates with blink-182 this summer. The band will be playing several high profile shows at SXSW with Kasabian, Mike Snow and Fun, as well as shows at Canadian Music Week. The band will be joining the famous Vans Warped Tour and have also just been announced for T In The Park in Scotland on Sunday July 8th. Expect more festival announcements in the coming weeks.
Already selling like hotcakes, 2 venues have already been upgraded to larger rooms to cope with the demand for tickets for the bands headline run. Be sure to get your tickets as soon as you can!
