The song comes from the London based band’s new album ‘Wish To Scream’, which is released on May 20. ‘Wish To Scream’ was recorded last year at the legendary Sound City in Van Nuys, California. The studio is the subject of Dave Grohl’s newly released Sound City documentary.


The follow-up to Tribes’ 2012 debut ‘Baby’ was recorded in the same room as Nirvana‘s ‘Nevermind’, Rage Against The Machine’s self-titled debut and Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Rumours’.

“It’s an incredible studio,” said singer Johnny Lloyd earlier this evening, when Zane Lowe debuted the track on his BBC Radio 1 show. “Its got lots of history and it really seeped into the music and the writing.”

Speaking about ‘How The Other Half Live’, Lloyd added: “We have a lot of fun playing that live, we’re actually touring that at the moment.” He also said of the second album: “There’s a probably a little more soul in these new songs… I think we’ve just grown up a bit”.

Tribes will be playing an NME Awards Show at London’s Electrowerkz on Wednesday (February 6).

Johnny Lloyd has written a novella titled A Journey Through The Heart Of A Pig. The book is limited to 1,000 copies and comes with illustrations by Hayden Kays.
