TRAAMS have announced their new album personal best which is set for release on 22 July via Fat Cat Records. To accompany this news the band have also released new single “The Light At Night” which features Protomartyr frontman Joe Casey on guest vocals, and is accompanied by a stunning new video directed by IDLES guitarist Lee Kiernan.
Speaking on the new single frontman Stuart Hopkins said:
“On The Light At Night, we were very lucky to get to work with Joe Casey of Protomartyr. It goes without saying that we’re all massive fans of his band, we were lucky enough to tour together a few years ago and became friends. After trying and failing to lay down a verse I was happy with I tried my luck and messaged Joe. Like a true pro he had the takes recorded and back to us in a flash, he loves a deadline apparently.”
Highly anticipated, the album is TRAAMS first full-length release in 7 years. The Chichester band took a break at the end of 2017 and after half a decade apart, the global pandemic reconfirmed their intense urge to create music together. In addition the constraints of lockdown revolutionised their sound.
TRAAMS have also confirmed a number of live dates throughout 2022.
It’s good to have them back…..
