'It's reignited our ambition': Twin Atlantic sign to Virgin EMI for album in 2020

Twin Atlantic have confirmed details of fourth album Power and a new label deal.

The Scottish rock act have signed to Virgin EMI and will release Power on January 24. Twin Atlantic were previously on the Red Bull Records label.

The band have dropped synth-rock track Novocaine as the lead single. Power features eight songs and two interludes, with the band acknowledging the influence of Depeche Mode and LCD Soundsystem.

A decade into their career, Twin Atlantic established their own studio in Glasgow. After self-funding and producing the album, the band then secured a label deal.

“We just got into a room and started creating,” said singer Sam McTrusty. “The studio as its own instrument reached a new level – we created nothing outside those walls and it became a physical embodiment of the album itself. Power is our own example that there’s always a way forward when you are faced with limitations and red lights. It’s reignited our ambition and drive for what we can achieve. Hearing these songs, that’s what I feel and hear: power. And that’s what the last two years have made us feel as a band: totally empowered.”

Following a main stage performance at Reading & Leeds Festival, as well as supporting The 1975 in Glasgow, Twin Atlantic have announced a March underplay tour, which concludes at London’s Electric Ballroom (March 20).
