I guess we should give you a little update of what’s going on in the world of Twin Atlantic eh? It’s all very interesting.
This week you may have seen us on the cover of Kerrang! magazine. It’s a very proud moment for us, our first magazine cover. We all grew up reading that magazine, and got to see our favourite bands on the cover, so to see our weird faces on there is so surreal but massively exciting at the same time.
We also just found out that we’ve been named iTunes New Artist of the Year for Rock. Pretty nice!
Our single ‘Free’ is currently on the BBC Radio 1 A List, another massive achievement for us. It will stay there over Christmas so please make sure to request it if you’re listening in and want to hear it on your wireless box of choice.
But about the important matter of touring I don’t hear you ask? Well, need you ask no longer. We’ve just announced that we’ll be coming back to North America in January/February with The Swellers and You Me At Six. Our feet have hardly touched the ground since we finished the AWOLNATION tour over there at the end of November, so we’re glad to get to keep the momentum going and play in many of the cities we did last month, as well as many new ones too. The promise of American ‘candy’ is always hugely appealing too….

But what are we doing right now? Well, we’re coming to the end of our UK FREE-ZE Tour aren’t we? I think we can all say hands down that this has been our most memorable tour to date. To see all the English shows sell out and see how passionate the people that have been turning up every night have been – it’s mind blowing. Seeing the crowds South of the border start to have the same reaction to us live as people in Scotland have for the last while has felt like a huge payoff for us. Just the Scottish shows to go now, we couldn’t be more excited about them.
Also, if you haven’t checked it out already we have a cool project going on with our friends The Uprising Creative and Instagram. It’s called the Twinstagram Photo Mosaic Project. It’s very clever, read all about it here…
I think that’s all we have to reveal right now, there’s lots more exciting stuff in the pipeline but this is neither the time nor place to talk about it. Keep your ears to the ground. All there’s left to say is have a great Christmas and New Year, hope you get to spend it with those you love.
Thank you for all your support this year, you’re making our dreams come true.
