A live video of Twin Atlantic playing No Sleep at the Isle Of Wight Festival has been released.

The track is lifted from the band’s upcoming fourth album GLA, due out on September 9. It’s designed as a tribute to their home city, Glasgow.

Frontman Sam McTrusty said of the follow-up to 2014’s Great Divide: “Glasgow is where we come from. It’s laced in our blood, not to mention our art and vision. It’s bold. It’s in our voice. It’s time to embrace it and not work around it.”

He adds: “We’ve changed our approach to writing and recording. We turned the idea of a rock band upside down, conforming only to this one idea – to take back rock and roll, to give people something real again.

“You can’t get more real than Glasgow. We’ve finally made the album we wanted to make.”

GLA can be pre-ordered via Twin Atlantic’s official website.

Twin Atlantic: "Being in a band is a massive laugh."

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
