Today, Two Door Cinema Club unveils a new song “ARE WE READY? (WRECK)”. The first new music from the band since 2013’s Changing Of The Seasons EP, the jittery, future funk barrage is an electrifying opening salvo from a newly re-energized TDCC. The song is the first listen to the band’s highly anticipated third album, Gameshow, due out October 14 on Glassnote Records/Universal Music.
“While I was writing this song I discovered this term weltschmertz, the German word for being at odds with the world around you,” singer Alex Trimble says. “The fact that it was a fully coined term and related to so many people that have existed and do exist made me feel it was okay to not exist on the same level as everyone else, it was okay to be comfortable doing your own thing. ‘Are We Ready? (Wreck)’ was me… not attacking the world around me but outlining why I don’t really get it and why I don’t fit in with it.”
In the last couple of weeks, the band has been playing festival dates and underplays for fans to ramp up the release of new music. The Tennessean said of the band’s Bonnaroo performance, “Fans were immediately gripped.” Last week, with Sunday at Governor’s Ball cancelled due to rain, the band put on a powerful show for die-hard fans at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Two Door Cinema Club will play a handful of festival dates this summer, with additional international dates to be announced.
