Twin Atlantic use Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' piano on new album 'The Great Divide'

Band will release their second album on August 18

Twin Atlantic have announced details of their new album 'Great Divide.' Click above to watch the video for new single 'Heart And Soul' now.

The band will release their second album on August 18 via Red Bull Records. It follows the 2011 release of their last album 'Free' and was recorded in Los Angeles with Jacknife Lee (U2, REM), and at Rockfield in Wales with Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters). It was while working with Norton the band had access to the piano used by Queen when they recorded 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Scroll down for the full album tracklisting.

"90 percent of Great Divide was written in the back of the tour bus," says lead singer Sam McTrusty of the band's effort to make new music while playing 300 gigs supporting 'Free'. "Our adrenaline was through the roof because, for the first time, thousands of people had come to see us. You can’t hear 10,000 people singing a chorus back at you and not be changed by it."

Twin Atlantic are set to perform at T in the Park and The Great Escape later this year and will also play an intimate fan show at the Boston Arms in London on May 14.

The 'Great Divide' tracklisting is as follows:

'The Ones That I Love'
'Heart And Soul'
'Hold On'
'Fall Into The Party'
'Brothers And Sisters'
'I Am An Animal'
'Be A Kid'
'Cell Mate'
'Rest In Pieces'
'Actions That Echo'
'Why Won’t We Change?'

Twin Atlantic will play:

London Boston Arms (May 14)
