Arcane Roots can now announce they will be releasing a brilliant, completely brand new single 'Over & Over', on June 9ththrough Play It Again Sam. As with debut album 'Blood & Chemistry', 'Over & Over' was recorded at Moles Studio in Bath (just before the fire almost destroyed it in early March 2014) and is produced by Dan Austin (Doves, Biffy Clyro, Pixies). The track will be available on digital formats only and will act as a stop-gap between album campaigns, very much pointing towards the musical direction for ARCANE ROOTS in the future. After a year of touring and supporting the biggest and best rock bands on the planet, 'Over & Over' is the sound of a band finding their musical feet and preparing to take over the world with a new higher ambition.
Andrew Groves from the band says: - "Over & Over is, musically, our reaction to having had one of the most incredible years of our life, supporting some of our biggest inspirations and building a relationship with our fans world wide. Our music was oriented around our individual parts for so long, but now, our attention is more firmly focused on what effect our parts can create. Our favourite moments are when we are completely in sync with the audience and so we wanted to give you something to sing, dance & rock out to, whether you even know the song or not. Lyrically, this song is about making a commitment and seeing it out through the good and bad, and in a way, that is our commitment to our fans."
The band will be heading back into the studio in the summer of 2014 to record their brand new record, more news on that soon.
