The Twang – New single ‘We’re A Crowd’ / New album and UK tour

New single released Feb 13 2012 and UK Album Tour February / March 2012
Feb 13th sees the release of the lead single from The Twang’s forthcoming third studio album entitled 10:20

The single, ‘We’re A Crowd’, was penned during a writing session in Summer 2011 as the UK riots were kicking off ten minutes from the studio door. Although not directly written about the riots the intensity of the situation has definitely bled through into the song but the anger of the summer is refocused into what positives can be achieved when people stand up together. ‘We’re A Crowd’ is backed with two brand new Twang original bsides, ‘Y.O.Y’ and ‘Heart To Heart’. ‘Y.O.Y’ may or may not be about a massive ding dong between bassist Jon Watkin and guitarist Stu Hartland which ultimately saw Stu leave the band. Of course, it could also be about two friends having a drunken argument! The video for ‘We’re A Crowd’ can be seen here:

To celebrate the forthcoming single and album The Twang tour the UK again in February and March 2012 and continue the now familiar Twang theme of playing weekend shows wherever they can. As Phil Etheridge, lead singer, explains. “Twang shows have always been more like a party than a gig. The best gigs are always the weekend shows, and anyone who has ever been to a Twang show will tell you that it generally has an air of fun and madness beyond most other bands shows. We’re just trying to keep the madness alive!” Tickets are available now from, dates are as follows:
