Middle Class Rut have announced they will release a double A-side single “Dead Eye’/’Born Too Late’, on December 23rd, taken from their critically acclaimed album, ‘Pick Up Your Head’ (out now on Bright Antenna Records).

The release follows a UK tour through December with Papa Roach - bit of an odd one, but best of luck lads.

The new live shows see MCR amplifying its previous two-man-band setup by adding a bassist, guitarist and percussionist.

“We were talking about our touring and figuring out how to play the new songs live and realized we had two choices" explains front man Zack Lopez "either we play to a laptop loaded with tracks, which would be lame, or we bring in some guys to fill out the sound, which seemed cooler. Sean was a little reluctant at first, which then made me reluctant, but we agreed to at least try it.”

Check out the lyric video, created by Zack, here:
