After a ferocious start to 2020, which saw the band land a top 15 album chart position with their debut Mixtape EP, The Snuts have announced their raucous, hook laden debut album, W.L. – out 19th March on Parlophone Records.
Hailing from Whitburn, West Lothian, The Snuts have well and truly found their stride on W.L. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, M83) and recorded at the Firepit London, the album encapsulates the band’s journey from four working class kids growing up with a dream in Whitburn, to becoming one of the UK’s most exciting and vital bands of the new decade. The album opens with the poignant Top Deck, winding through a voyage of genres including the raw, rousing, hip-hop driven Elephants, heart-wrenchingly honest Boardwalk, the undeniable pop banger Somebody Loves You, the hauntingly heartfelt anthem Always and the main stage festival ready hymn, All Your Friends.
“Our debut album W.L. is our lifetime work. It’s a collection of milestones and melodies that time stamp a dream we had becoming a reality.” Lead singer Jack Cochrane reflects. “It’s a record about being true, loving and resilient.”
Adored up and down the country for their uninhibited, sweat-drenched live shows, the band have also announced a UK tour for May/June 2021, including a dream show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands on 11th June. Jack Said of the milestone “We promised ourselves that playing the world famous Barrowlands and releasing our debut record would be eternally intertwined. This occasion is a celebration of that fact for us as a band and the fans who have supported us unconditionally.” Artist presale tickets for the tour available 10am Wednesday 9th December and general sale 10am Friday 11th December.
The band will also perform at The Leadmill in Sheffield on May 4th 2021, Leeds Stylus on May 5th, the Asylum in Hull on May 22nd and at Slam Dunk Festival at Temple Newsam on May 28th.
