Marmozets have broken down the guitar and bass parts for their latest single ‘Habits’ in 3 awesome videos for MusicRadar.
‘Habits’ is taken from their upcoming album ‘Knowing What You Know Now’ which is out on January 26.
It’s been three years since MARMOZETS first broke through with their debut album, but the reaction to the first track to be taken from their second album, ‘Play’ feels as if they’d never been away. ‘Play’ was premiered as Daniel P Carter’s Rockest Record and then received the almost unheard of accolade of also being chosen as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record too. And the attention kept on coming: Scott Mills and Annie Mac both named ‘Play’ as their Tune of the Week before it was subsequently playlisted at Radio 1 – a timely reminder of just how brilliant MARMOZETS are.
Now MARMOZETS add to their growing momentum with the news that their long-awaited second album ‘KNOWING WHAT YOU KNOW NOW’ will be released on JANUARY 26TH. Recorded with the legendary producer GIL NORTON (Foo Fighters, Pixies), it’s the band’s most ambitious and accomplished offering to date.
To coincide with the album’s launch, MARMOZETS have shared another taster of the album in the shape of the new track ‘HABITS’. It’s a danceable riff-fest which sees Becca adopt a dreamy, soaring vocal style – and is, explains Sam, “about certain people having certain habits that aren’t good, and getting very carried away.”
While ‘Play’, the pounding ‘New Religion’, the pulse-quickening ‘Major System Error’ and the spiky ‘Lost In Translation’ find MARMOZETS’ embracing a new intensity within their controlled chaos, the band have the courage to explore fresh territory too.
A stark and sombre standout is ‘Me & You’ – its sparse arrangement befitting the raw sentiment of the song. It was inspired by the death of the MacIntyres’ beloved grandmother, who was always an enthusiastic supporter of the band. Another departure comes with ‘Run With The Rhythm’, an epic head rush of a track that was chosen to close the album because of its message of encouragement.
“We created the album for ourselves,” says rhythm guitarist Sam MacIntyre. “It’s not that we don’t care about our fans – we absolutely love them – but the reason they like what we do is because of the way we are.” Vocalist Becca MacIntyre adds, “We don’t do things because they’re cool; we do them because they feel right”
After returning with incendiary sets at the Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as a sold-out tour in August, MARMOZETS are about to embark upon a fresh headline tour. Demand for tickets saw their London show at the Garage sell-out weeks in advance, so an extra date has been added at ULU on February 7th to satisfy demand.
Consisting of two sets of siblings, the MacIntyres (Becca, Sam and drummer Josh) and the Bottomleys (lead guitarist Jack and bassist Will), MARMOZETS built a cult underground following with a series of independently released EPs. Their reputation exploded after they signed to Roadrunner Records and released their debut album ‘The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets’. Praised by Q, Noisey, NME and The Guardian, it also won Kerrang!’s coveted Album of the Year award.
‘KNOWING WHAT YOU KNOW NOW’ will be released on digital, CD and limited edition blue vinyl formats. Fans who pre-order the album from marmozets.co.uk will receive instant downloads of ‘Play’ and ‘Habits’.
The MARMOZETS’ second full-length offering is an album that feels right to its creators, and will sound even better to fans old and new. Prepare to get to know the most exciting record of 2018.
