Working Men’s Club are due to open for Primal Scream in Halifax on Friday night before playing various festivals, including Tramlines, Bluedot and Kendal Calling. They’ll also perform at a series of in-store gigs this month.
Additionally, the band have shared a new Erol Alkan remix of ‘Ploys’ – listen to it above.
“I had my rework of ‘Ploys’ already finished in my head before I even sat down to make it within an afternoon,” Alkan explained. “Working Men’s Club have got all the right chops and I’m a fan.”
Speaking previously about the upcoming ‘Fear Fear’, frontman Syd Minsky-Sargeant explained: “The first album [2020’s self-titled] was mostly a personal documentation lyrically, this is a blur between personal and a third-person perspective of what was going on.
“I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics. It’s not a minimal record, certainly compared to the first one. That’s because there’s been a lot more going on that needed to be said.”
