The Twilight Sad follow the free download of ‘Kill It In The Morning’* with the release of a new single proper, ‘Sick’ on 14th November.
Both songs are taken from the forthcoming album, ‘No One Can Ever Know’ (due February 2012) marking a sonic shift for The Twilight Sad. Freshly inspired by the likes of Magazine, Caberet Voltaire, Fad Gadget, PiL and Can, a sound has developed that is reminiscent of Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails or The Cure in their imperial phases.
Over a splashing, rolling electronic drum pattern bright icy synths cut in to create a disconcertingly affecting backdrop to James Graham’s desolate lyric and broad brogue.
Overseen by Andy Weatherall in the loose role of advisor cum ‘anti-producer’, the melodic tone of the new album is largely dominated by a new keyboard/ programming-driven approach.
Having just completed sold out European shows with label-mates We Were Promised Jetpacks, the band embark on a UK tour November 13th-25th with an XFM show at the Borderline on the 21st November. The full dates are:
