Since Everything Everything announced details of their new album 'Arc' a couple of months ago, the excitement building around its release early next year has been impressive, to say the least. The announcement coincided with the lead single 'Cough Cough', which experienced the highest radio support the band have ever received across Radio 1, XFM, 6 Music et al, and resulted in their first entry into the UK Top 40.
The band also enjoyed a completely sold out run of dates around the UK in anticipation of 'Cough Cough's release and won over old and new fans alike with the new material. They're currently on tour in Europe supporting Muse and will return to the UK for a full headline tour in February next year.
Ideas for the second album started bubbling while the band where still touring debut album Man Alive. On a trip home to his mum and dad's house in deepest Cumbria, Jonathan retreated to the garden shed to and emerged with the first song for the new album - Kemosabe. And what a song it was - the second single from Arc, retains the digi-Timbaland groove that marked out some of Man Alive's best moments, but adds buzzsaw riffs and a sunshine chorus. As pathfinder songs go, it was a brilliant start and now the obvious launch pad for what is set to be an exceptional 2013 for the Manchester quartet
The album Arc will be released on January 14. Check in with EE here: www.everything-everything.co.uk
