INCLUDING a Date at The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth

Lower Than Atlantis

They release a brand new self-titled album on September 29th 2014 via Easy Life/Sony Red.

Lower Than Atlantis are back with their most ambitious album to date. The self-titled album, recorded in their own studio in Watford and produced by Dan Lancaster positively fizzes with musical ambition, lyrical wit, crossover potential and carpe diem spirit. And songs, brilliant songs.

From the us-against-the-world bravado of “English Kids In America” (likely to become the anthem for any homegrown gang touring the US) to the reflective closer “Number One”, Lower Than Atlantis is the sound of a band determined to give everything they’ve got in search of glory. It’s reflective of a band who’ve grown up “I’m 25”, says singer Mike Duce, “It’s time to stop acting like a fucking child – I’m definitely less of a nutter without growing old Don’t worry”, says Mike, “I won’t stop being mouthy – I calls them as I sees them”.

And, whether you’re looking for brilliantly accessible rock anthems “Emily”, “Here We Go” or heartbreakingly direct break-up songs “Ain’t No Friend Of Mine”, LTA delivers. Mike Duce unflinchingly documents his unhappy experiences, both professional in “Criminal” and personal in “Words Don’t Come So Easily”, but in a way that anyone and everyone will relate to. And, just as his lyrics have become more universal, and as LTA’s melodies reach peaks of infectiousness rarely scaled by punk rock geezers from Watford, so the band’s musical palate has expanded.

“There’s only so far you can go with four blokes playing guitars, bass and drums,î smiles Mike. ìAnd now was the time to do whatever the fuck we wanted.”

Consequently, an electronic edge snakes through the album, while the addition of strings, dance beats elevates LTA far above most of their rock peers.

Lead single “Here We Go”, is Zane Lowes “Hottest Record In The World” on 2nd June and will be played out at 19.30 on BBC Radio 1. This will be followed by the brand new video available over on VEVO shortly after.
