Band's third full-length effort will come out on September 17
Lower Than Atlantis have announced full details of their new album ‘Changing Tune’.
The record, which is the band’s third full-length effort, will be released on September 17 and contains a total of 12 tracks. It is the band’s first release for new label Island Records and will be preceded by an as-yet unnamed single.
Speaking to NME previously about their move to a major label and responding to a question about if it signaled a change in direction, singer Mike Duce said: “Nothing’s really changed, except we’ve got the financial backing that we didn’t have before.”
He continued: “Previously everything we put in was our own money, money we’d begged and sweated to cobble together to make it. We’ve now got access to input from people who’ve been doing this for a long time. So it’s having the intelligence and the money.”
As expected the band’s recent single ‘If The World Was To End’, which you can see the video for by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking, does not feature on the record.
Explaining this, Duce said: “It’s just a stanadlone thing. We never stop writing, we had a few songs left over and we wanted to release it to keep things going. We thought about putting it on there, but the songs we’ve got are really strong.”
The tracklisting for ‘Changing Tune’ is as follows:
‘Love Someone Else’
‘War With Word’
‘Go On Strike’
‘Scared Of The Dark’
‘Something Better Came Along’
‘I Know A Song That Will Get On Your Nerves’
