MALLORY KNOX: BRITISH ROCK BAND RELEASES NEW TRACK “BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU”; THIRD STUDIO ALBUM ‘WIRED’ AVAILABLE MARCH 10 VIA COLUMBIA RECORDS

Today, British rock band Mallory Knox return with “Better Off Without You,” a thunderous new track from their forthcoming studio album Wired, set for release March 10. Wired marks the band’s first album to be released on Columbia Records in the US. Listen to “Better Off Without You” HERE. Mallory Knox previously released Wired’s lead single “Giving It Up” late last year, watch/listen HERE.

Written about the prescription drug Citalopram, which is used to treat anxiety and depression, “Better Off Without You” was born out of bassist Sam Douglas’ frustration towards a doctor who took a particularly lax approach to his treatment. “For something so personal, it all felt very impersonal,” recalls Sam of the experience.

In just five years, Mallory Knox have firmly established themselves at the forefront of modern British rock. The Cambridge five-piece (named after the character in Natural Born Killers) released three BBC Radio 1 A-Listed singles on their last album, 2014’s Asymmetry, which reached #16 on the Official Albums Chart in the UK. The band sold out London’s 3,700-capacity Roundhouse during a headline tour in support of Asymmetry, in addition to playing the main stages of Reading and Leeds Festivals and Download Festival. Stateside, the band has toured with Pierce The Veil and Sleeping With Sirens in addition to playing Warped Tour in 2015.

Breaking free of the restraints that bound them on their first two albums—inexperience, self-doubt, a restricting reverence to their heroes and a reputation as rock’s latest nice guys—Mallory Knox are back, laying bare their souls, kicking at their boundaries, savaging their sound and expanding their worldview. In the process, they are becoming a vital voice of the modern rock generation; damaged, informed, driven, torn between happiness and hedonism and utterly, utterly wired.

This year, the band will embark on an extensive UK headline tour, including two nights at London’s Koko, with further dates to be announced later in the year. Visit www.malloryknox.com for more details.
