I know you’ll be bored to tears with me saying how much I enjoyed SOUND OF GUNS‘ latest album ‘Angels and Enemies,’ and their recent show here in Glasgow at King Tuts, so rather than me blab on again about their new single and forthcoming tour, I’m just gonna plagiarise the words of their PR Company:
Following their sold out headline performance at Liverpool’s O2 Academy to over 1,200 people, Sound Of Guns announce new single ‘Antarctica’ through Distiller Records. Taken from new album ‘Angels & Enemies’, the single was produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Ocean Colour Scene) at The Distillery in Bath.
‘Antarctica’ has been selected as the leading song to Sky Sport’s 2012 Champions League coverage – it is a powerful rock anthem which mirrors the excitement and passion of the beautiful game. The B-Side includes a cover of ‘Killing Moon’ by Echo and The Bunnymen, a track which many will recognise from the Donnie Darko soundtrack.
In support of the new single, Sound Of Guns will be touring with The View, following festival appearances at Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, a mainstage appearance at Lounge On The Farm, Rockness.
