Twin Atlantic Announce Brand New Album Meltdown

Out August 9th On Staple Diet Records


New Single ‘World Class Entertainment’ Out Now

November UK Headline Tour Announced
London, Brixton Electric – Nov 14th

Headline Shows @ Glasgow O2 Academy – May 23rd & 24th

After a couple of tasters released either side of the new year, Scotland’s finest alt-rockers Twin Atlantic are back with new album Meltdown. The album will be released August 9th digitally and September 13th on physical formats on the band’s own label, Staple Diet.


The band returned with the album’s first taste in raucous pop-rocker ‘Stuck In The Car With You’ late last year, which was followed by the frantically, euphoric ‘Asleep’, alongside a run of sold-out intimate dates across the UK. Now they release the album’s third cut in new single ‘World Class Entertainment’. A riff heavy, sweat drenched banger, the track is Twin Atlantic at their guitar driven best; raw, loud and packed with a punch. Listen To ‘World Class Entertainment’ HERE.


On the band’s new single, frontman Sam McTrusty says; “Sometimes during the making of an album, I can’t help but make fun of the whole thing. The day we wrote World Class Entertainment we set out to do just that. Turn everything up to 11, make every lyric sarcastic and opinionated. There’s a massive trend in the culture of excess and judgement, and that’s how this angsty fun flashing neon sign of a song was born. It’s great to be back kicking heads in with riffs. Lets go!”


Produced by McTrusty and bassist Ross McNae and mixed by longtime collaborator Romesh Dodangoda, from top to bottom Meltdown is a return to form for the band. Eleven slices of infectious, masterful pop-rock, Meltdown is equal parts guitar heavy bangers and emotionally driven heartfelt anthems. With one foot firmly in nostalgia, while wholeheartedly looking to the future, Twin Atlantic are back to their very best.


Over the last 18 months we have been relentlessly obsessing over the making of a new album. We built two studios to have our own freedom and space to dig deeper into the essence of our band,” Sam said of the recording process. “That freedom evolved into engineering and producing the album ourselves. Zero outside influences. What we’ve got in the end is something we are so proud of and feels like our best work yet. The time felt right to revisit our roots and dive back into the big chorus’s and massive guitars that shaped our band’s early years, but obviously having lived life and toured the world since then we found an evolution of that sound.”


The band have also unveiled a fresh set of UK headline dates for November, which will see ten shows across the isles, including London’s Brixton Electric on November 14th. Before that, Twin Atlantic head out on a short Scottish run in May for a date at Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen and two very special homecoming shows at Glasgow’s O2 Academy in May 2024.
