The British rock band, Marmozets, have revealed Jan. 26 to be the official arrival date for their Roadrunner Records’ sophomore album, Knowing What You Know Now, produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies).
The Yorkshire alt-rock group gives new meaning to the brand, 'family band.' The members include Becca Macintyre (vocals) and her two brothers, Josh Macintyre (drums), and Sam Macintyre (vocals/guitar), together with the Bottomley brothers, Jack (guitar), and Will (bass).
About Knowing What You Know Now, Sam Macintyre discussed the band’s mindset behind the new LP in an exclusive press release, “We created the album for ourselves. It’s not that we don’t care about our fans – we absolutely love them – but the reason they like what we do is because of the way we are.” Adding to the band's philosophy, Becca Macintyre adds, “We don’t do things because they’re cool – we do them because they feel right.”
The follow-up to the band’s 2014 Roadrunner Records’ album, The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets won the ‘Best Album’ at the 2015 Kerrang! Awards. The debut album received accolades from a wide range of international publications, and is considered the band’s most provocative work to date, featuring hit songs like “Major System Error” (the band’s favorite), and “Me & You.” The breakthrough album authenticated Marmozets as a dominant creative force, projecting Becca Macintyre as a ‘fronthuman’ who will challenge the status quo of British rock.
To further enhance the announcement of Knowing What You Know Now’s official release date, the multifaceted alt-rock band has launched the official music video for the second single, “Habits," directed by Aella Jordan-Edge. Watch the music video above. The lead single, “Play,” was released back in August along with an accompanying music video directed by Millicent Halle.
Marmozets continue to wow audiences with their intoxicating live show. The family band has been road testing their new material during the first leg of their massive and successful headlining sold-out UK tour that finished out with two show-stopping performances at this year’s annual iconic music festival, Reading & Leeds on Aug. 26- 27. The young group has increasingly added to their loyal fan base, both in Europe and the United States, by performing alongside iconic acts such as Royal Blood and Muse.
Marmozets are about to embark on the second leg of their full-scale UK tour which is scheduled to get underway on Oct. 17 at The Welly Club in Hull, UK. The upcoming 2018 North American tour begins on Mar. 2 in Seattle, Washington. The complete 2018 tour itinerary is listed below.
Knowing What You Know Now is available for pre-order on the band’s official website all DSPs. All pre-orders will include an instant download of the first single, “Play,” as well as the new single, “Habits.”
