Drenge have unveiled the video for ‘We Can Do What We Want’, the first song to be taken from their second album, ‘Undertow’.

‘Undertow’ will be released on April 6. Drenge will be touring the UK in April, following their sold out NME Awards gig on February 12 at London’s Tufnell Park Dome. The band will play nine dates, starting at Nottingham Rescue Rooms and finishing up at London’s Electric Ballroom on April 21.
They recently explained the role both Fleetwood Mac and Kanye West played in making of ‘Undertow’, with drummer Rory Loveless telling NME: “We spoke to Kanye West [on the set of Later in 2014]. He was talking about wanting to put more aggression into his music, but I think we’ve kind of backed off from that a little bit,” he said.
Going on to describe the ways in which he and brother Eoin have changed, Loveless continues: “We’ve grown up so there’s more freedom [in the music] and not so much brattiness. It’s not so abrasive. We’ve chilled out. There’s one song that screams Fleetwood Mac.”

Nottingham Rescue Rooms (April 10)
Birmingham The Library (11)
Gateshead The Sage (13)
