Tom Allan & The Strangest '17 Days'

posted at 07/29/2022

'17 Days' - Glitterhouse Records is very excited to show you the new single by Tom Allan & The Strangest taken from the upcoming album. 'TAATS' is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'Little Did They Know' (2020) and shows the band on a new path.

"We went much further out on a limb musically than usual with this album. Allowed other influences to come in, totally delved in and let loose, sort of created an album out of the indie hooklines of the past that still clearly shows our background but is more mature and above all honest" says Tom Allan. "It was good to use the concert-free time to let the songs mature and take the time to work on them. There was a lot of experimentation with new sounds and we had a lot of fun not trying to find a single sound for the album, but letting each song stand on its own."

Lyrically, the trio has also evolved, with the new single dealing with the process of growing old together as a band: "coming back for sequels / is this our line? / is this what we're supposed to do? / not more to offer / than who we are / and hoping there's no pleasing you".

TAATS was written during the pandemic over a period of almost two years. The band composed a total of 25 songs, 13 of which made it onto the album. The new album of the German-British-Mexican band was produced at Maarweg2 studio in Cologne, where bands like Mando Diao or Jupiter Jones have already recorded. Within 17 days and nights, Tom Allan & The Strangest recorded the full album, which skilfully bridges the gap between Manic Street Preachers, Libertines, IDLES and Fontaines D.C..

Tom Allan & The Strangest 'TAATS' is due to release August 26 via Glitterhouse Records. Pre-order here: https://linktr.ee/TomAllanAndTheStrangest
