Arcane Roots have released a video for their new track titled Off The Floor.
The song will appear on the trio of Andrew Groves, Adam Burton and Jack Wrench’s upcoming second album Melancholia Hymns which will arrive on September 15 via Easy Life/Red Essential.
Vocalist and guitarist Groves says: “Off The Floor was the very first time we had ever openly written about politics.
“Current world events had become an almost unavoidable weight over us during the writing of Melancholia Hymns and where it would usually be something we would shy away from, it felt like now more than ever that we had a duty to speak up.
“Never before had it felt like something could actually change and that we had a responsibility to encourage people to vote and make a difference.”
Groves adds: “Musically, we wanted to write something that felt at home on a festival stage but was structured more electronically, with a constant build towards as big of a riff/drop as we could dream up.”
Arcane Roots have several live shows scheduled throughout the rest of the year. Find a full list of dates below.
