Alt-J have a lot to be excited about at the moment. In addition to preparing to set off on a huge world tour this summer, the English indie rockers are also gearing up for the release of their third studio album Relaxer, due out June 2. On Wednesday, the band gave fans another preview of their upcoming LP by revealing the album’s second single, “In Cold Blood.”
The new song follows up “3WW” as the second single to be previewed prior to Relaxer’s June release date. “In Cold Blood” premiered earlier this afternoon on BBC Radio 1, and the horn-heavy single has plenty of fire and energy to really get their fans excited about how the other songs on the the album will be sound. According to the band, "In Cold Blood" is a tune they’ve been working on since their college days in Leeds, although they have given it some production updates with the horns being added in during recording sessions at Abbey Road Studios.
Their upcoming tour, which starts out on June 15 at the O2 Arena in London, will see the band making appearances at New York City’s Panorama Music Festival in July and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 7.
“In Cold Blood” can be heard in the official audio video shared below.
