Twin Atlantic return with a new line-up a new album in January – and a date for Inverness.
Tickets go on sale next Friday (September 10) for an Ironworks gig on May 11 next year that is part of a new tour celebrating 10 years of their album Free.
Sam says: “After the challenges put in front of everyone in 2020 and 21, I did what I’ve always done in moments of turmoil, stress or anxiety and started to write songs.
"It slowly evolved into an album and something we feel puts a new stamp on our band which really excites us.”
The band recently delivered a UK tour, welcoming fans back with a rapturous sold out headline show at London’s Electric Ballroom.
Now today the band is announcing a fresh run of May 2022 shows, including Inverness Ironworks as well as London’s Roundhouse, and Glasgow Barrowland, to celebrate 10 years of their career-changing Free album.
Sam commented: “We’ve very rarely ever been a band who look back, but during the lockdown, Free turned 10 years old.
"It hit another landmark of selling 100,000 copies in the UK. To celebrate that, we wanted to do something in return and finally play an album from start to end live. Can’t wait to see you all there!”
The new record also sees the departure of drummer Craig Kneale, who says; “It is with a heavy heart and so many great memories that I've decided to step back from Twin Atlantic.
"I love this band and still believe that big things lie ahead – but this feels like the right time for me to jump off and try something new.
"To have been able to travel the world and play music with my best friends for 15 years has been the greatest privilege. To everyone that’s supported the band over the years – you are the fuel that makes this all mean something. Thank you. What a joy it’s been to be in a band with Sam, Ross & Barry. It still feels like a dream. Craig x.”
For an album made quietly in lockdown, Transparency is begging to be played loud and live. Bold, adventurous, and a load of fun. And the band says this is just the start of a new era for Twin Atlantic.
You can pre-order the album.
