Glaswegian rockers Twin Atlantic embark on a tour of the UK and Ireland this week, as main support to Taking Back Sunday. The band are gearing up for the release of their new mini-album ‘Vivarium’ on September 14th. The trek follows solid performances from the quartet at the Download and T In The Park festivals, whilst including further festival slots at the Sonisphere and Belladrum events.
Having given their ever-loyal fanbase a sneak preview of ‘Vivarium’ with recent free download ‘Lightspeed’, the band release the mini-album’s first single proper on Monday 7th September, in the form of ‘You’re Turning Into John Wayne’. A track that front man Sam McTrusty describes as being about “the way American culture is everywhere. So much so that loads of bands put on fake American accents in hopes to be more commercially viable in the US, while it was important to us to stay true to our roots and just be ourselves.”
