The Snuts announce new album “Burn the Empire”
Up and coming Scottish rock band The Snuts have announced that their highly anticipated new album Burn The Empire will arrive October 7, 2022 via Parlophone Records/Elektra Records. Burn The Empire follows the band’s debut album, WL, which reached number one on the UK Albums Chart last year. Today, The Snuts unveiled the fourth preview of the record with new single “The Rodeo”.
Premiered as Clara Amfo’s “Hottest Record In The World” on BBC Radio 1, new single “The Rodeo” is a carefree, floor-four indie anthem destined to ignite live crowds around the world.
“‘The Rodeo’ is about knowing that your life is more often than not completely out of your control. It’s about finding merit in the madness and celebrating the journey and not just the destination. It’s the musical equivalent of cowboys versus aliens,” shares singer Jack Cochrane. “We want him to encourage the feeling of pure and inclusive absolute escapism through guitar music.
One of the UK‘s most exciting acts right now, 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 by singer Jack Cochrane tackles issues affecting today’s youth.
Opening with the album’s title track, an all-out protest against corrupt corporations and politicians, the album delves into the negative effects of social media on “Zuckerpunch,” and “13” tackles the lack of of mental health services and the deadly effects of poverty in Britain and its impact on society.
“The universe gave us time to create a record where we finally felt we could address some of the topics, whether they were societal or spiritual, that we were dying to scream,” said lead singer Jack. Cochrane about the album. “There are songs about highs and lows, things we really want to talk about and things we can’t help but feel, but have never made room for.”
Contagious, euphoric, heartfelt and chock-full of hooks, Burn The Empire is the work of a band living in the moment, with an eye to the future. Armed with a UK chart-topping album and an arsenal of adoring fans, The Snuts are on their way to becoming one of the most vital bands of recent years.
This summer The Snuts will perform at a range of UK festivals and support Kings Of Leon through their UK dates. Tickets for the band’s upcoming concerts are available here.
