Art Brut return with new single 'Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!'

After falling completely silent since the release of their fourth studio album 'Brilliant! Tragic!' back in 2011, German post-punks Art Brut are back with a brand new single.

The new track 'Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!' is their first piece of new material in seven years, and sees them part of a brand new home as part of Alcopop! Records.

Commenting on the signing, label boss Jack Clothier said: “A few years into running Alcopop! I created a little wishlist in my mind of the absolute top five dream bands who I'd love to sign most of all. Legitimately we expected to sign none of them, but, lo and behold, Art Brut are the fourth on the list to sign with us, and we couldn't be more excited. This new material is undeniably their best yet, and it's exactly what the world needs right now if you ask me.”

And speaking on their new material, frontman Eddie Argos said: “Watch the fuck out! We're back and very rejuvenated. I wanted to call the last album Wham! Bang! Pow! Lets Rock Out! but in the end it didn't really sound like a Wham! Bang! Pow! Record!, more like Brilliant! Tragic! but that means this idea has been rattling around my head for 7 years. 7 Years!"
