Tigercub Share New Track Ahead Of Debut Album

Brighton trio Tigercub have shared their new single, ‘Burning Effigies’.

The track is the second to be taken from their debut album, Abstract Figures In The Dark, out Monday November 11 via Alcopop! Records.

Front man Jamie Hall said: "I had this dream where I was chasing a silhouette of myself forever down a corridor which eventually led me to this huge bonfire ceremony and it turned out to be Guy Fawkes night.

“But there were millions of versions of me burning pictures and effigies of myself at the stake.

“So I looked it up and read that seeing yourself burning in a dream represents feelings of never being cared about ever again.

“Despair. Other people rubbing in their neglect, abandonment, or ill will towards you. Which is what that song ended up being about.

“I'd been listening to Scott 4 on repeat at that time and I wanted to recreate the essence of melodrama Scott Walker creates in his songs, I really liked the idea of opening a record and setting the scene in that way with such a dramatic entrance."

Recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Alex Newport at Brighton Electric Studios and mastered by John Greenham, the highly anticipated debut album follows Tigercub’s widely acclaimed EP, Repressed Semantics.

Vant Reveal New Single 'Peace & Love'

With their biggest headline tour to date on the horizon as well as shows as guests to You Me At Six and Nothing But ThievesVant are stepping up a gear as the year accelerates to a close.

Vant have revealed their new single ‘Peace & Love’ ahead of their November headline tour.

The single comes as the quartet have finished work on their debut album Dumb Blood which will be released on Friday February 17 2017.  

Vocalist/guitarist Mattie Vant said: “We finished writing ‘Peace & Love’ in the wake of the Paris attacks. Atrocities like these are taking place worldwide on a daily basis, but it’s only when something happens so close to home that it truly grabs the full attention of our society.

“We live on a planet that has forgotten what the words ‘Peace & Love’ mean and what they stood for in the 60s and 70s. The power of the peace movement changed the world forever but our unity is starting to slip.

“‘Peace & Love’ have become throwaway words, fashion statements, cheap symbols that have lost their value. We need to reconnect with their true meaning because, more than ever, we are living in a time that really does need ‘Peace & Love’.”

You can watch ‘Peace & Love’ below:
