Twin Atlantic announce one-off homecoming show

Glasgow band will perform as part of Jack Rocks event

Twin Atlantic are set to play a one-off gig in Glasgow this month.

The band will perform as part of the Jack Rocks event at St Luke’s in the city on November 30.

They will perform and curate the night, showcasing local talent from the area.


The intimate gig comes ahead of a trio of homecoming shows at the 2,100-capacity Glasgow Barrowland in December in support of their recent album ‘GLA’. They will also play shows at Dublin Academy (December 10) and Belfast Limelight (11).

In the past, The View, Tijuana Bibles, The Mystery Jets, We Are Scientists and Prides have all performed at the annual Jack Rocks event.

Twin Atlantic recently completed a UK tour which wrapped up at Norwich Waterfront last month.

‘GLA’ was produced by U2/Two Door Cinema Club producer Jacknife Lee in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, after Lee also co-produced Twin Atlantic’s previous album ‘Great Divide’ in 2014.

Of the sessions lead singer Sam McTrusty told NME earlier this year: “[Jacknife Lee’s] His kids were coming home from school and there were all these distractions, but it kept our brains awake. A decision that would take seven weeks on the last record took us 30 seconds on this one.”


The tracklisting for ‘GLA’ is: ‘Gold Elephant, Cherry Alligator’, ‘No Sleep’, ‘You Are The Devil’, ‘Overthinking’, ‘Ex El’; ‘Valhalla’, ‘I Am Alive’, ‘Whispers’, ‘I Am A Scar To Hide’, ‘Missing Link’, ‘The Chaser’, ‘Mothertongue’.

Of the record, McTrusty said it was a departure from their previous album, which their label considered to be a risk. “I suppose it is risky, but I think we’re over caring about that side of things,” said McTrusty. “All our contemporaries are just doing reworked versions of themselves. We’re rebelling against that.”

Twin Atlantic will play:

Dublin Academy (December 10)
Belfast Limelight (11)
Glasgow Barrowland (13, 14, 15)
