Twin Atlantic Irish Tour Dates 2012:
Formed in 2007 in Glasgow, and infusing their music with their Scottish heritage, Twin Atlantic found themselves caught in a whirlwind in the months that followed their 2009 mini-album Vivarium’s release. Support slots with the great and the good – from Blink 182 to My Chemical Romance and The Gaslight Anthem – followed tours the length and breadth of Europe and America. Interviews, photo-shoots, magazine articles and newspaper pieces amounted to a blur of excitement and hype.
Vivarium immediately found an awestruck audience. The reviews were uniformly ecstatic. Grand, sweeping and eloquent, it was a collection of songs with a heart and soul, crafted by passion and informed by staunch lyrical and musical frankness. It set Twin Atlantic on a rollercoaster – one that has led, now, to the release of their full debut, Free, on Red Bull Records, an inspiring collection of songs full of ambition, pain, belief and soul. In a world of music dominated by talent show winners, mass-marketed bands and meaningless music, here, finally, is a band in which to invest your heart.
Free is an album of experiences. Having had their horizons broadened by touring the UK, Europe and America, Mc Trusty, in particular, spent time gazing from aeroplane and van windows fearing the world he was seeing was becoming a more uniform place. Musically, too, Twin Atlantic were ambitious. Forging on from Vivarium’s expressiveness, Twin Atlantic wanted to make an album that was both vast and encompassing. most of all, the album has an emotional honesty that speaks straight from the heart. In all its twists and turns it embodies its creators.
And it’s because of music like this that the sense of expectation around Twin Atlantic is developing rapidly. This brilliant record, one of the most anticipated of the year, has been tipped by tastemakers and fans alike.
Twin Atlantic are: Sam Mc Trusty – Lead Vocals & Guitar, Ross Mc Nae – Bass, Piano & Vocals, Barry Mc Kenna – Guitar, Cello & Vocals, Craig Kneale – Drums & Vocals.
