Two Door Cinema Club have shared the first single from their forthcoming third album on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.
‘Are We Ready? (Wreck)’ is the first new material from the band since the release of their ‘Changing Of The Seasons’ EP in 2013. Listen to the song in full below.
Speaking to NME about their return, the band described the track as “rebelling against [consumerism]”. Guitarist Sam Halliday said: “The lyrics play on that and hating how the world is going in terms of commercialism and how people are addicted to social media and living on their phones.” Read more from Two Door Cinema Club here.
The band were scheduled to headline Latitude festival in 2014, but were forced to pull out of the performance two days before when frontman Alex Trimble was taken ill.
The band recently played a handful of surprise live shows in Ireland – their first since December 2013. The comeback gigs were billed as “a tribute to Two Door Cinema Club.”
They were advertised alongside a photocopy-style flyer featuring three cats, and saying “Bono says ‘we’re even better than the real thing'”, a quote ‘attributable’ to the Irish Times.
