The Snuts Announce New Album 'W.L.'

After kicking off 2020 with their debut Mixtape EP, rising Scotish indie rockers The Snuts have announced their raucous, hook laden debut album, W.L. will arrive on March 19, 2021 via Parlophone Records/Elektra.

Produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, M83) and recorded at the Firepit London, the album encapsulates the band's journey from four working class kids growing up with a dream, to becoming one of the UK's most exciting and vital bands of the new decade. The album opens with the poignant "Top Deck", winding through a voyage of genres including the raw, rousing, hip-hop driven "Elephants", heart-wrenchingly honest "Boardwalk", the undeniable pop track "Somebody Loves You", the hauntingly heartfelt anthem "Always", and the main stage festival ready anthem, "All Your Friends".

"Our debut album W.L. is our lifetime work. It's a collection of milestones and melodies that time stamp a dream we had becoming a reality." Lead singer Jack Cochrane reflects. "It's a record about being true, loving and resilient."

The band also share a brand new clip of fan-favorite track "Glasgow". This joyous pop tinged guitar classic takes us right back to the band's roots. Watch the visual HERE.

Adored for their uninhibited, sweat-drenched live shows, the band have also announced a UK tour in May/June of 2021, including a dream show at Glasgow's Barrowlands on June 11. Jack Said of the milestone "We promised ourselves that playing the world famous Barrowlands and releasing our debut record would be eternally intertwined. This occasion is a celebration of that fact for us as a band and the fans who have supported us unconditionally." A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.

A band with their feet firmly grounded in a sense of community and never forgetting where they came from, together with their devoted fan base they raised over £3300 for their crew who had been left without work earlier this year. Jack also established himself as a voice for the people, writing an impassioned open letter to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as part of the #LetTheMusicPlay.

2020 was the year the UK's most exciting act, The Snuts, had in their sites: a sold-out UK tour, a top 15 EP in the UK album chart and a band on the tip of everyone's tongues. The map was routed, but the world had other ideas. With a year that has seen Covid-19 derail the music industry, the band found themselves on a re-route, as resilient as they are essential, 2021 is the year of The Snuts.
