Red Bull Records band Twin Atlantic is returning to North America next month. The Glasgow four-piece will be sharing stages with, Weezer, Rise Against, Gaslight Anthem, Phantogram, Bush and others during a run of holiday radio concerts across North America.

“Hold On” is the new single off the Gil Norton & Jackknife Lee-produced album Great Divide, which debuted at #6 on the UK charts. Praise for Great Divide has been effusive: Rock Sound gave the album 9 out of 10, Alternative Press and Q gave it four stars each and NME declared it “A triumph…Great Divide is a love letter to the power of music itself; earnest, yes, but as heartwarming a rock record as it’s possible to imagine.”
Twin Atlantic has also been selected for Spotify’s “Emerge” new artist program, in which 10 hand-picked contenders compete to see who will be the #1 rising star on Spotify. Fans can listen and follow Twin Atlantic here: http://spotifyemerge.com/artists/twin-atlantic/ to help them win. Past winners include Bastille, Sam Hunt and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
In the three years and countless shows since the release of their acclaimed debut album Free, Twin Atlantic has become known as one of the UK’s most exciting live bands. They’ve toured recently with 30 Seconds to Mars and Kings of Leon, played Glastonbury, T in the Park and Reading and Leeds this summer, and are currently out on a headline tour of UK and Europe. The first single off Great Divide, “Heart & Soul,” won the AIM Independent Music award for Track of the Year and it is shortlisted as one of Zane Lowe’s Hottest Records of 2014.
