Rounding off their prodigious 2021 with an anthemic rebel yell that we can all get behind, Welsh rockers Scarlet Rebels have unleashed the invigorating I’m Alive, the opening track from their upcoming album See Through Blue, out 28th January 2022 via Earache Records. Listen to the track here.
Pumped with unstoppable energy, I’m Alive sees relentless riffs and rousing vocals chronicle a declaration of resilience and a spirited lust for life. Inspired by frontman Wayne Doyle’s own catharsis during the Covid-19 pandemic, I’m Alive is a rallying call to all those who have found a passion for life that they won’t release from their clutches.
Doyle comments: “I initially wrote I’m Alive around the defiance of still being in a band and not leaving music to focus on ‘real’ life, as many suggested I should do. ‘Real’ life is whatever you make it – especially in light of the pandemic, it’s unbelievable to me that anyone would try and draw someone away from their passions. This is a song for everyone who’s ever been doubted and stuck to their guns regardless. I salute you!”
In a bid to make real change in the issues that lie closest to their heart (and their music), Scarlet Rebels – completed by lead guitarist Chris Jones, second guitarist/keyboard player Josh Townshend, bassist Wayne ‘Pricey’ Esmonde and Wayne’s brother, drummer Gary Doyle – are collecting for local food banks at their headline shows, and those unable to attend their shows are welcome to donate approved items via grocery delivery services like Deliveroo. More information can be found here.
Scarlet Rebels’ headline album tour commences on 20th January 2022 through to 12th February 2022.
See Through Blue is currently available to pre-order – signed editions, limited edition colour vinyl (red/green/purple), special merch bundles, plus an ultra limited cassette tape and rare ‘alternative artwork’ version with blue cover and vinyl are all available from earache.com/scarletrebels while stocks last.
They will perform at Nightrain in Bradford on January 21st 2022.
