TWIN ATLANTIC will return to the U.S in late January as direct support on the You Me At Six/The Swellers co-headline tour, along with openers We Are The Ocean. The tour kicks off January 24 in Cleveland, OH and wraps on Valentine’s Day in Los Angeles, CA.
The Glasgow rock outfit recently finished a run on a sold out U.S. tour as support for AWOLNATION and Middle Class Rut and are currently back in the UK on a sold out headline trek that ends on December 12.
Dubbed “your new favourite band” on the cover of this week’s Kerrang!, TWIN ATLANTIC’s debut album Free was also named the #9 Album of the Year by Rock Sound Magazine who said they made THE British all-out rock record of 2011. Additionally, their latest single has officially been added to BBC Radio 1’s A-List rotation.
TWIN ATLANTIC recently announced a groundbreaking new promotion in partnership with popular photo social networking site Instagram. The ‘Twinstigram Project’ launched on December 2nd and is the first of its kind. The project pulls in fans’ Instagram uploads tagged with the hashtag #freetwinatlantic and pulls them all into their own grid allowing fans to interact with their own photo socially and share it with friends via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. Once enough fans have uploaded their photos, exclusive content will be unlocked, such as a FREE download of the Hadouken! remix of the song ‘Make A Beast Of Myself’, very special acoustic videos and more. As the fans’ pictures continue to grow, the photos will be pulled into a mosaic image of the ‘Make A Beast Of Myself’ single cover of the Virgin Mary which will be made into a lithograph composed of all the fans’ images. This very special litho will be available for presale during the promotion, which can be found at www.freetwinatlantic.com.
TWIN ATLANTIC’S critically-lauded debut full-length, FREE, was recorded with legendary producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies, Jimmy Eat World). Free, the follow up to the well-received debut mini-album, Vivarium, expands upon the band’s signature sound, melding angular riffs with energetic choruses. Explosive and hard charging, yet melodic and thoughtful, the tracks cut deep and ring true to the listener, leaving a lasting impression. The album is currently available digitally in the U.S., and will be in stores Spring 2012.
The video for the title track and current U.S. single Free was directed by Howard Greenhalgh (Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun) and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TAJ_be8S8A.
