Arcane Roots Announce New Single 'Belief' Plus 2013 Summer Festival Dates

Arcane Roots will release their brilliant, brand new single, ''Belief' on August 26th through Play It Again Sam. As with recent single 'Slow', the band (through drummer Daryl Atkins) will be producing and directing their music video for the single in July (to be ready mid/end July).  Having recently completed a full UK headline tour, the band will also play a few European shows with MUSE (at the request of drummer Dom Howard), a host of summer festivals (including Reading and Leeds and BBK in Bilbao) and a couple of August UK shows with Bad Religion, in London and Manchester.

Andrew (Groves, guitar and vocals) explains a bit about the meaning behind the new single: "'Belief', for me is the most important song on the whole of 'Blood & Chemistry'. It came at a time when I was experiencing a lot of doubt over my abilities as a songwriter, which had just become very neatly framed by my personal and professional lives crashing into each other, as best they could. I wanted to write a song that could stand up to the anthems we had heard soaring from the stages of festivals the previous summer, a by-the-book classic, a 'songwriters' song. After searching for so long, i ended up writing it on my bedroom floor in about half an hour, it changed me and the album entirely and was the first song we finished for the album session."
