The Snuts have announced that their highly anticipated new album, Burn The Empire will arrive on October 7th via Parlophone Records/Elektra Records. The band has also unveiled the fourth taste of the record with their new single, “The Rodeo”, which can be heard now below.
“’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. It is the musical equivalent of cowboys vs. aliens,” lead singer Jack Cochrane shares. ”We want it to encourage the feeling of absolute pure, inclusive escapism through guitar music.”
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,” Cochrane 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.”
This summer, The Snuts will perform at a string of UK festivals, and support Kings Of Leon across their UK dates. Tickets for the band’s upcoming shows are available HERE.
