New Album Burn The Empire Out October 7th
UK Summer Festivals Announced
Following an epic debut performance at Glastonbury last month, The Snuts have released the video for their new single ‘The Rodeo’. Directed by Alice Backham (Coldplay, Wet Leg, Rachel Chinouriri) and shot in Mexico City across the band’s recent dates, ‘The Rodeo’ is the fourth taste from their highly-anticipated new album Burn The Empire, out October 7th on Parlophone Records. The album follows their acclaimed, number 1-selling debut album, W.L.
“We went to Mexico to play some shows and were lucky enough to discover the amazing world of Escaramuza Charra, the only female equestrian event in the Mexican charrería, whilst we were there,” lead singer Jack Cochrane said of the video. “We loved it so much, we asked Regina Segura Martinez to feature in this video.” Watch the video HERE.
A care-free, four to the floor, singalong indie anthem, set to ignite live crowds across the world, “’The Rodeo’ is about knowing that your life is more often than not completely out of your control. It is about finding merit in the madness and celebrating the journey and not just the destination,” Jack said of the track. ”We want it to encourage the feeling of absolute pure, inclusive escapism through guitar music.’
One of the most exciting acts in the UK right now, The Snuts deliver 11 slices of sonic brilliance on Burn The Empire. Produced by longtime collaborators Detonate and Clarence Coffee Jr the album continues the band’s evolution both sonically and lyrically. A voice for the next generation lead singer Jack Cochrane attacks subjects affecting the youth of today. Opening with the album’s title track, a no holds barred protest against the corrupt corporations and politicians, the album delves into the negative effects of social media on ‘Zuckerpunch’ and ‘13’ tackles the lack of mental health services and the lethal effects of poverty across Britain and its impact on society.
“The universe delivered us time to create a record where we finally felt we could address some of the topics, be it societal or spiritual, that we have been dying to scream out,” Jack said of the album. “There are songs about the highs & lows, stuff we really want to talk about and things we cannot help but feel, but have just never made the space to.”
Infectious, euphoric, heartfelt and packed to the brim with hooks, Burn The Empire is the work of a band living in the moment, with an eye to the future. Armed with a chart-topping album and an arsenal of adoring fans up and down the country, these four lads from Whitburn, West Lothian, are well on their way to being one of the most vital bands of recent years.
