Roadrunner Records’ band Marmozets have released their new lead single, “Play,” the first taste from their highly-anticipated upcoming sophomore album. Dropping along with the official track is the accompanying music video directed by Millicent Halle. Watch the celebrated video above!
It has been three years since the British rock band released their breakthrough 2014 debut album, The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets (winning Best Album at the Kerrang! Awards), via Roadrunner Records.
Gearing up for the upcoming LP, produced by Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies), the group are road testing new material by headlining a massive sold-out UK tour that will run through fall, including two performances at the annual number one UK music festival, Reading & Leeds — Aug. 26 and 27. Additional tour dates, including a North American tour, will soon be announced. Check here for complete dates and tickets information.
The upcoming album (as-yet-untitled) will showcase the multifaceted talents of the Yorkshire, alt-rock band. The group consists of siblings Becca MacIntyre (vocals), her two brothers, Sam MacIntyre (vocals/guitar), and Josh MacIntyre (drums), with another pair of siblings, Jack Bottomley (guitar), and Will Bottomley (bass) rounding out the 'family' band.
Marmozets, known for their controlled chaos live shows, has performed alongside such iconic acts as Royal Blood and Muse, exposing the young group to an increasingly loyal following spanning Europe to the United States.
