Two Door Cinema Club have confirmed that their third album has been completed.
In a brief message on Twitter today (April 2), the Northern Irish trio wrote “Album 3. Finished.” The message followed a picture from the studio shared on Facebook yesterday. No name or release date has been announced yet.
It has been almost four years since their second album, 2012’s ‘Beacon’. They have announced festival dates at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Rock en Seine, Rock Werchter and NOS Alive this summer.
Album 3. Finished.

At the beginning of the year the band wrote on Facebook, “Happy New Year! Looking forward to sharing new music, new shows, new everything with you guys!” but have yet to announce a tour.
The new album will be their first new material since the ‘Changing of the Seasons’ EP, released in September 2013. Their social media accounts were silent between mid-2014 and October 2015, with some band members making appearances as DJs during that time. Their last live performance as a band came in December 2013 shows in London and Blackpool, with appearances in mid-2014 in Bournemouth and as headliners of Latitude both cancelled due to illness.
Frontman Alex Trimble – who provided the vocal for lighting of the Olympic flames at the London 2012 Olympics – has been developing an alternative career as a photographer.
Trimble’s first exhibition of 30 images went on show in August 2013. It was a collaboration with Belfast photographer Jamie William, and told the tale of a trip between two friends, a Mustang and the open road.
Mustang Margaritas featured images taken by Trimble and William across America, including shots of the Nevada desert and Las Vegas. Speaking about the exhibition, Trimble said “To get lost and found again through the lens of a camera, escaping life as we live it with a close friend is an unforgettable experience that I dearly wish to share with people through these pictures.”
