The Snuts release new single ‘Knuckles’

The Snuts deliver 11 slices of sonic brilliance on Burn The Empire.

Premiered as Clara Amfo’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’, The Snuts release their infectious new single ‘Knuckles’. The track is the fifth advance from their highly-anticipated new album Burn The Empire, out October 7th on Parlophone Records. The album follows their acclaimed, number 1-selling debut album W.L.

A track created for festival mainstages, ‘Knuckles’ is a pop driven indie banger, packed to the brim with hooks. “We wanted to create something feel good and carefree. A song close to our hearts, but wide open for interpretation, it’s a new age indie tune designed for letting loose,” lead singer Jack Cochrane said of ‘Knuckles’. “Lyrically the track is inspired by the notion of the strong female spirit I’ve been lucky enough to be surrounded by throughout life. It’s about resilience and strength.” Listen to ‘Knuckles’ HERE.

One of the most exciting acts in the UK right now, The Snuts deliver 11 slices of sonic brilliance on Burn The Empire. Produced by longtime collaborators Detonate and Clarence Coffee Jr the album continues the band’s evolution both sonically and lyrically. A voice for the next generation lead singer Jack Cochrane attacks subjects affecting the youth of today. Opening with the album’s title track, a no holds barred protest against the corrupt corporations and politicians, the album delves into the negative effects of social media on ‘Zuckerpunch’ and ‘13’ tackles the lack of mental health services and the lethal effects of poverty across Britain and its impact on society.

“The universe delivered us time to create a record where we finally felt we could address some of the topics, be it societal or spiritual, that we have been dying to scream out,” Jack said of the album. “There are songs about the highs & lows, stuff we really want to talk about and things we cannot help but feel, but have just never made the space to.”

Infectious, euphoric, heartfelt and packed to the brim with hooks, Burn The Empire is the work of a band living in the moment, with an eye to the future. Armed with a chart-topping album and an arsenal of adoring fans up and down the country, these four lads from Whitburn, West Lothian, are well on their way to being one of the most vital bands of recent years.

The Snuts head out on a winter headline tour this October, including shows at London’s Koko on October 24th and a sold-out hometown show at Glasgow’s O2 Academy on October 25th. Tickets are on-sale HERE.
